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.
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? For me, no other service comes close to the flexibility, robustness, and overall ease-of-use that RSS offers."
Also, I would have told you I read that a year ago, but it was posted in September. As it's getting close to the end of 2020, I'm thinking about strategic plans for 2021, and looking back on the plans I wrote last year they might as well have been for a different universe where everyone has five legs, eats rocks, and gets flung into space by the rotation of the earth when they're 9 hours old for all the relevance they have to life today.
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.
I'm so tired by the complexity of the world these days...
I like to think things could be better.
