I just posted my best video yet. I poured a ton of time into this and aside from being AWESOME I would love some help promoting it.

The video explains 5G mobile technology. It’s written for anyone to understand. (Hence the title.) 5G and every generation of mobile technology, I’ve learned, is fascinating and you’re going to hear a lot about it this year.


I just put in six more hours of editing for my educational video on . Hoping to release it tomorrow.

Attention: Another QOTO Update/Restart

This is a big one so everyone pay attention.

I recently just got done adding in several new features to the QOTO codebase, it will be going live on the server within the hour. It brings with it lots of new features you wont find in Mastodon, that also means a bit of risk, so lets hope this update goes smoothly.

Once the new version is up please feel free to share what you love or hate, we can always tweak this stuff. The following are some of the new features:

* Bookmarking toots and retrieving.

* Quoting toots

* Domain subscription (this one is my favorite) where you can follow a specific instance (not a user) and basically create a local timeline at QOTO reflecting the remote instances timeline.

* Account subscription. This is a bit like a follow but not a follow. It is where you follow a persons public toots only but dont actually follow them. This is handy if a user posts some public toots but also has their followers locked for approval. You can still follow them without their approval or them even knowing you follow.

* a more prominent link to our QOTO announcements and the / hashtags.

* Several additional theme alternatives to try

*And many others!

The most wonderful thing in life is finding somebody to #love and share it with. Even after 13 years I find my love of my #wife growing every day. The #kids will eventually grow up and make their own lives and find their own love, and my job doesn't need "me" specifically to do it. When I'm too old to work and the kids have their own lives, when I come home at the end of it all, my wife will be the one waiting for me. No matter what you do in life, I hope you all find somebody to share it with.

@Kauroka I like big books too. Have you read Seveneves or the Kingkiller Chronicles?

I’m obsessed with and .

I love original humor.

I love studying technology and in companies and products that will shape the future

I love designing tools that people realize they always wanted.

I love working for myself.

I love critical thinking and, as a , I especially love thinking critically about .

I build websites, apps, YouTube videos and if I’m not doing something on a computer, I love working with my hands.

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same. Add to the post.
