My interview with @ljwrites for Linux Rig: linuxrig.com/2021/03/31/the-li

Ya know, I mostly abandoned Twitter (where I was active, possibly unhealthfully so) a few months back, and also disabled my "cross poster" (which only posted my Mastodon post to Twitter, not the other way around, because @Gargron said he preferred to avoid polluting the Fediverse with Twitter depravity, and I thought that was a fair point). I haven't regretted the transition.

@matt Flexibility. To set a view, maybe save it for a few days, and then trash it when the need ends. But you can easily toggle between saved searches and sorts without having to undo everything each time.

@matt I'd love an Airtable or Tweet Deck for email that has multiple, savable views.

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

@mpmilestogo Have a restful break but I'm another fan who looks forward to your return! But recharge!

So there's still 3x matching funds left but only for the next 14 new @conservancy supporters! If you're waiting to donate now's the time! Just 1 day left in 2019! Totally unrelatedly, did you know that December's stressful for folks who work at nonprofits? sfconservancy.org/supporter/

Lining up my 2020 writing projects and already feeling anxious and overwhelmed. Maybe I should stick to surprising myself with deadlines?

@wion omg. Pine nuts are worth more than gold! That was an amazing heist! Celebratory pesto?

@jakelacaze I once read something along the lines of writing through the 10,000 words of garbage to get to the good stuff, so I now look at the struggle as getting me that much closer to the reward

good post about how nerd communities' mass-adoption of the closed and proprietary Discord platform will inevitably lead to the long-term loss of (or loss of access to) mountains of special-interest group knowledge and community history

@lowbrow Waterman is out? Because it's erasable? That's my daily driver

My old machine: Hahaha! Zzzzzzzz
