I just posted this album review and I really liked the Jung stuff I managed to cram in: http://nodepression.com/album-review/ron-spencer-bands-jukebox-collective-consciousness-makes-great-blues-rock (glad I read a Very Short Introduction to Jung!)
sometimes I go to my spam folder and imagine I'm the luckiest person in the world.
Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains is 52. That makes me feel so ridiculously old.

social.coop meta, request for feedback Show more
So, if for nothing else than to help people learn from our mistakes, I'd like to start compiling accounts of the unravelling/failure of social.coop.
I will be reaching out to particular people over the next few days, but if anyone out there left/chose not to join social.coop for Reasons and would be willing to talk about it (anonymously if you want), please DM.
Please boost for visibility.
It cracks me up how people don't get The Athletic: https://slate.com/culture/2018/09/the-athletic-is-poaching-from-local-sports-pages-and-reading-like-them-too.html
Sports fans want to read about sports. Newspapers stopped covering sports. Sports fans are willing to pay. Everyone is like "The Athletic is no different from a newspaper!" But it is, in that they're covering things like hockey and not just running wire copy and national stories.
I don't know to what extent their revenue model works but the content is great.
It's a good morning when you have every disc burner in the house going.

Finally finished my two blog posts on why I’m weaning myself away from Twitter in favour of Mastodon:
What’s wrong with Twitter?
What is Mastodon and why should I use it?
if you're new and worried about your follower numbers, don't! mastodon is more about the community and having fun with your friends. you can drop the toxic thought process where you viewed yourself as a brand on Twitter.
Use your local and federated timelines! Talk to people if something catches your eye! Don't gamify the experience here, be considerate. Think about being part of the local & federated community instead of figuring out how to go viral. Mastodon is super fun without those habits.
LIBRARIANS OF MASTODON (freakin' killer punk band name, by the way):
Check out Trunk, a list of Mastodon lists on Community Wiki! They've got lists of different people to follow on Mastodon but the GLAM lists are either pretty short or non-existent. Hit up the Wiki and get added to the list(s) of your choice!
