No matter how benevolent a dictatorship is, it's still a dictatorship, and subject to the dictator's whims. We must demand that the owners and leaders of tech platforms be fair and good - but we must also be prepared for them to fail at this, sometimes catastrophically.

If you'd like an essay-formatted version of this thread to read or share, here's a link to it on, my surveillance-free, ad-free, tracker-free blog:

For me at least, getting onto @Mastodon and appreciating the structure of the platform and the tone of conversation has made these other pop-up social networks (Twitter replacements) totally unattractive. No, I don’t want to move up on a wait list by “referring 5 friends”; no, I don’t want to be part of another Jack Dorsey project; no, I don’t want to be part of something with weird completely top-down control. Mastodon broke me for other platforms.

The AI speech enhancement feature in the Adobe Podcasts Beta is very, very good!

It made my built-in studio display mic sound like it was recorded on more professional microphone 🤯

An irregular reminder that calling this place "Mastodon" has a bit similar energy as saying "I just sent you a GMail."

"Fediverse" (or "fedi") is a better term.

Mastodon is just one of many software projects that talk to each other to create this multi-instance social network:

(kudos to @axbom for this fantastic infographic!)

There are blogs, Reddit-like communities, video instances and many more, all part of fedi.

I know people really like quote tweets, but the Mastodon devs made a conscious decision not to implement an equivalent. Your reasons for wanting them are completely valid, but overall the bad outweighs the good. It's not just dogpiling, it tips the platform in favor of accounts who are willing to say the most outrageous things possible with the intent of boosting their reach by getting dunked on by quote tweeters.

Ayer leí una historia corta publicada en 2018 que me pareció enorme.

Se llama #STET, de Sarah Gailey. Lo más notable de la historia es el formato: un único párrafo, las notas al pie y las anotaciones de la editora. Suficiente como para atticular una historia distópica sobre IA y coches autónomos. Una reinterpretación magistral del problema del tranvía.

Pensando en la absoluta genialidad que era el doblaje de Los Simpsons de Carlos Revilla. La manera en que tradujeron "See my Vest" es sencillamente soberbia.

Mastodon this morning is now indistinguishable from my Twitter feed of about six weeks ago— except it's missing garbage tweets and abusive drive-bys.

Like many others, when Mastodon first launched, I didn't really pay attention to it and the vision @Gargron had for a decentralized social network. And I wish I did.

Now that we're here, I hope other publications can follow the @macstories approach: own your identity, control your tech, and engage with your audience everywhere.

We have lots of ideas for how we can take this further with MacStories 5.0. It feels liberating and exciting to do all of this now.
