Pinned toot

One wonders, "what will this new Social Media Identity end up expressing or standing for?" Naturally one gets shaped by those one interacts with.

In the case of hugovdm@mstdn.io, my first little project of identity-manifestation may be pivoting around cosmic.voyage/ - I love the notion and want to see what people come up with.

Expect some commentary! No followers here yet means I have no worries about spamming people with toots that bore them. 😜

An initial on Mastodon:

I don't yet know what I'll share where and how. 2018 was a year of self-discovery and re-invention, I'm in the process of finding my new writer's-voice.

I'm interested in and , deep interest in human spiritual traditions, integrating their meaning from a scientific worldview. (So call me post-atheistic if you like, it's a linguistic matter?)

Further interests include armchair-theorising about and And more, l8r.

"In your own words, what would make you a good choice for the first Mars colony?"
"I am near immortal, and superhumanly strong."
"I see. And why do you want to go?"
"The moons of Mars are probably too small to make me turn when they are full."
"Probably?"
"I have no other hope."

Probably if I had a real community of flesh-and-blood humans that I could commiserate with and swap stories with, I'd feel a lot more enthusiastic about my side projects. But as is, I can see my interest starting to slack. There's no substitute for real human connection.

So that's my pitch for why we need a decent tech meetup in Seattle. Thank you for coming to my TED talk. *drops slides on the floor, awkwardly picks them back up*

Does some corner of the Fediverse have the option to rank posts yet? (As opposed to sort-by-most-recent.)

By-recency sort order makes me feel more need to read exhaustively, which is too much / discourages following people that post "too regularly". (Whereas rank's downside is me being influenced by algorithms' decisions, of course.)

Mostly I don't want the irregularly-posting-friends' toots to get lost among the volume of others. ("Prioritise selected friends" could help.)

Most of the folks speaking of rationalism tend to self-demonstrate that humans are rarely rational creatures. At this point it's an effective keyword for flagging emotionally crippled "bros."

Meaning can be seen as a riddle. "I am the inescapable reason for all things to exist. What am I?" The scientific process doesn't provide an effective strategy for solving riddles, though.

I don't really believe in objective reality. Due to its nature, I don't need to.

So here we go: I now have a Mastodon account, consequence of the death of G+.

Old identity: plus.google.com/+HugovanderMer
Another old identity that still continues to exist: twitter.com/hugovdm

Diaspora identity: hugovdm@pluspora.com

I don't yet know where I'll end up settling down. Until then, I suspect I'll have a plethora of online identities, which can at least eventually be used to point people at my most stable social media presence.
