"I'd always fancied seeing Bristol, so I decided to 'visit' the Bristol office to look at 'user take-up'. I actually spent three days taking MDMA at an anarcho-syndicalist house party in St Pauls, and the dissociative come-down made me realise how profoundly upsetting it was to live in a state of utter porposelessness."

This is the best thing I've read in ages.

@mattcropp pretty small AIUI. Maastodon closed down, I think maybe there's one other one.

@alissa Maybe I should get this one for when people demand to know why I chose pink as newCardigan's key colour: cottonbureau.com/products/i-we

"Hey Mike, you know computers, how do I not get hacked?"

"Stop doing those dumb 'What Industrial Solvent Are You?' quizzes, delete Facebook and don't reuse your passwords."

"Hahah yeah, but seriously, what app for my phone should I get?"

@alissa holy fucking shit that Nick Poole speech.
