If you think it’s horrible one billionaire bought up the public square and killed it, wait until you find out why your city doesn’t have a trolley system

A few recommendations for life on Mastodon:

1) Follow anyone you think looks potentially interesting; you can always unfollow later, and they may lead you to new people via boosted posts.

2) Boost posts you think are worthy, so others can discover new content.

3) Don't obsess on replicating your Twitter follows on Mastodon; let it be its own experience, and grow it organically. Obvs follow anyone you miss from Twitter, but this isn't a 1:1 replacement; have fun, follow your instincts.

Watching Artemis is like watching a pitch drop experiment.

picking a mastodon server to join is easy -- just think of it like you're allying with one of many families in a war-torn medieval land, each with their own histories, feuds, laws, blood rituals

It’s pretty crazy how much higher the engagement is on mastodon compared to the birdsite

Is there any way to see what instances are blacklisted by an instance?

Wow it’s already time again for to change all the default app icons without actually changing anything else about the app

Tinkering with is one of those things where you have a cute little idea after dinner and all the sudden it’s 1am and I don’t even remember what I originally wanted to do

I'm really not worried about Mastodon scaling issues at all.

When I left Twitter in 2008, we had roughly twice as many users as the current combined Mastodon network, all running on one MySQL server that had the same specs as a high-end 2013 MacBook Pro, plus roughly 10 web servers and 5 queue servers.

To be fair, growth wasn't as rapid, and we had local-infra advantages over federated systems, but these problems are solvable and I have no doubt will be fixed soon.

Tech layoffs 

Great talk about tech layoffs today by @bcantrill and @ahl on their Twitter Space.

A couple of thoughts afterwards, if you’re laid off:
* don’t sign anything in the room. Let them know you’ll be speaking with an employment lawyer.
* actually go speak to an employment lawyer. Even if their answer is “yeah, they did it right”, the peace of mind is worth it
* get into whatever post-layoff gossip you can. People often set up Slacks or Discords. Text everybody. People help each other.

Since I don’t wanna be left out,

I’m an currently working as a at on modelling and simulation for the - hoping to increase the worlds access to

Free time is a lot of working in and the occasional model. Most up to date info at
