And so she moved on. Sometimes for no better reason than because she didn't like the view from the coffee shop. This time it was just a feeling that the beach side town was too quiet in the winter, and she was looking for some work to stretch her arms. So she cashed her mincome, bought a train ticket up north and fell in with a brand new makerspace setting up in an old sawmill. It was freezing, but the first thing they built were small rooms inside the giant building that they could easily heat.

None of the six domains I already own quite capture the vibe I'm going for right now so obviously....

STARS EXPLODE, WORLDS COLLIDE, THERE'S HARDLY ANYWHERE IN THE UNIVERSE WHERE HUMANS CAN LIVE WITHOUT BEING FROZEN OR FRIED, AND YET YOU BELIEVE THAT A... A BED IS A NORMAL THING. IT IS THE MOST AMAZING TALENT.

So I've figured out what I want from Mastodon, I want to be able to follow servers.... I want to be able click over to see the social.coop public timeline, or be able to make a list of servers in a 'friends timeline'. I think that would help with the user discovery problem that I'm running into a bit.

"Why I still use RSS...I firmly believe the Internet, and what it stood for, peaked with RSS....Having only the content I want to see only be shown when I want to see it with the freedom to jump between readers as I please, all with no ads?

I love my phone, but somehow my ebook feels more futuristic.

Also, I would have told you I read that a year ago, but it was posted in September.

If there is something you want to do with your life... don't put it off out of fear of being good enough.

Chase that shit so you don't end up having to claw like a madperson to climb when you finally get confident enough.

My 'service group' affinity has been pretty low energy lately, and is probably going to go bankrupt thanks to covid. We just moved buildings and burned our cash reserve.

With everything that's going on, I want to join a team that's doing the right thing.
'Joining' isn't the right word - I'll join a political party, and in fact I've been a member of a majority of them at one point or another. I want something I can believe in.
But simple.
I'm so tired by the complexity of the world these days...
