I once got a run of blogspam pretending to be a friendly note about site compatibility: "When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping." - Yeah, it works in IE, but not Internet Explorer..which actually kind of makes sense...

Instagram has really messed up with their latest update, so it might be a good moment to promote the privacy-friendly chronological-timeline ad-free goodness of #PixelFed:

If you know someone who is p'd off with Instagram right now, let them know there are #alternatives 👍

I talked to a couple up and coming artists who are "safe" from the Tumblr purge over the holiday.

They know Tumblr has shot themselves and is going to be circling the drain really really really soon.

Trouble is they can't self-host (spoons/accessibility/knowledge gaps) and/or are waiting on other, centralized services to come online and displace Tumblr.

Now is our time to shine.

Let's put our weight behind the amazing OSS projects geared towards long-form posts that speak ActivityPub as well as projects like FreedomBone, FreedomBox, Yunohost, Lollipop Cloud and others that reduce barriers to entry and help with accessibility of self-hosted content and giving an individual control of their destiny again.

Even jumping into a community to ask questions or provide feedback is support.

It takes a community to have a successful project and everyone contributes in their own way. From Q&A to docs to code. ALL are valid contributions.

It's actually only "Helvetica" if it comes from the Helvetia region of Europe. Otherwise you have to call it "sparkling Arial"

Here's my 'big camera' photos from a trail I hiked with friends a few days ago. It's a short trail at just under 2km each way, but involves lots of rock scrambling and even some ladder-climbing :)

"The internet of 1995 and 1999 and 2001 and even 2007 was a backwater by today’s standards, but to me, it was the most wonderful thing. It was strange and silly and experimental and constantly surprising, and it made you feel good about other people, because online, away from corporate media and every channel of established culture, other people turned out to be constantly surprising too. They [...] told you, to your eternal benefit, about what it was like to be someone other than yourself."

(already pushed, so I couldn't just --amend it.)

Twitter is like a train crashing into a burning dumpster, and the railroad owner won’t let firefighters in because they’re doing such a brisk business selling marshmallows.

Mastodon is like a small party: not as many people, but you can actually hear each other talk.
