Get a load of this conference paper from 30 years ago, it is so ZING! on academic journals: drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxlbe

I'm interested in what ausglam.space users think about this from @darius - runyourown.social and in particular his Mastodon fork Hometown: github.com/hometown-fork/homet

If you were thinking of auto-deleting your old toots I have good news - I made a thing for you (me): github.com/hughrun/ephemetoot

Might file that one away with @alissa's "Evidence based whinging" as another standard section for research papers.

It is true that turning up is the most important thing.

It’s also true that just showing up is not nearly enough and we spend far too much time arranging the affairs of organisations around to suit the people who do turn up, instead of carrying out strategic activities towards goals

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

Capitalism is destroying the oceanic food chain so people can take placebo supplements.
