I no longer consider Twitter to be a social network. I see it as a carefully curated feed of corporations and personalities selling things. It doesn't seem to be useful for socializing, rather, it seems outright anti-social.

Mastodon.social is the gulag of .

Join you an instance that doesn't censor.

There should exist an audiobook store that lets you buy an audiobook using directly from the author.

To work for @twitter or MSM, you’ve gotta be down with constant, unapologetic deception.

Another data point to make the World Economic Forum look like pandering propaganda pushers: Bitcoin mining/network electricity usage.

WEF Claim: By 2020 Bitcoin will consume more power than the entire world (claimed in Dec 2017).

Fact: Bitcoin uses only ~0.5% of the global electricity consumption. Ranking as if it's a country, it's 39th (data as of Aug-2021).

Meanwhile Reuters just agreed to a partnership with WEF to become a distributor of their approved news.

@arh putting your publicly funded work behind a paywall and not even getting paid for it is a special kind of stupid

Decentralized exchange of digital assets is still an unsolved problem.

When your country's president has sufficient "fuck you" money that he shitposts news of the old guard disapproving of his newfound sovereignty.

Literally this tweet is going to be in history books. #TrustThePlan

Visiting Florida was a nice break from California. Upon returning it feels like I’ve re-entered a mental asylum.
