Looks like Canada finally has a centrist party -- at least in name. Remains to be seen whether or not it's a real thing or some would-be politician with an opinion and a Twitter account.

You can find a new server at joinmastodon.org/servers or fedi.garden (the servers listed there have at least two admins and promise to give 3 months warning of any shutdown).

There's a step-by-step guide to moving your account at fedi.tips/how-to-use-mastodon-

I missed the Green Comet. The next time it comes back, in 50,000 years, I'll be viewing it from my simulated consciousness uploaded into the cloud.

"The goal is to have less in common with the Taliban, not more." -- David Sedaris, A Speech to the Graduates

Because they are warm, durable and comforting. Also, they're on the east coast and it's been a part of our culture since the late 80s.

Everyone (...well... ok, Twitter...) is talking about Jordan Peterson's terrible steak advice but it just made me want to go and find a (medium) really well executed Wagyu. πŸ₯©

People are needlessly concerned that the unavoidable of (language and visual) tools will “break the landscape”. The quality and quantity of “fake news” and other published BS may increase but people with the and to distinguish between and will always have the upper hand.

Humanity was in this situation of “disruptive innovation” many times in the past, and it somehow managed to grow up of it a little bit better than before.
