I gave a talk last night at a friend’s birthday party and magazine launch about Ursula LeGuin, Star Trek, and how the arts might help us achieve a post-scarcity society. I hope you enjoy it, shares happily welcomed.
Facebook has struggled to hire talent since the Cambridge Analytica scandal

Good morning, shop, and the worlds where we wander!
I have already drunk multiple cups of tea and cleaned the cat’s litter box. Now I have to go run an errand, but first I have to get my feet out from under the cat. (Her timing is impeccable, as always.)
I can’t have more tea right now, but I can put the Wandering Shop kettle on for you. Tea? Coffee?
@Wewereseeds: public account, it's where I put most of my art, opinions, and plants. You have a good chance of getting me to follow you back there.
@canary: my quiet instance. I'm only going to let you follow if I know you, or you are local to #PNW. So if your location isn't on your profile, you gotta DM me about why you're following me. And I only follow back if you're local. Cat pics, selfies.
@GooBabe: where I put my nudes, most of my shitposting, and slime porn. No discourse enters there.
I went and made a Patreon... Show more
... for the podcast I make with my friends.
Did this for two reasons:
1. Currently I pay all the hosting costs out of pocket and it would be nice to pretend I could ever break even.
2. If we got enough donors, I could start maybe paying people* to make content for the site.
I spent too much time as an "employee" of a podcaster who made good ad revenue but never paid the people who did the work. I will not be him.
(*shhh, something may already be in the works...)
