mastodon project, governance
Feels like Mastodon is getting to the size and traction where it isn't healthy for the community/project for @Gargron to have to make all the decisions.
This is an inflection point for every open source project. I see that @BaptisteGelez is making strides towards putting #plume in a good place for moving forward, especially in decision making and transparency.

Yeah, it seems like bad stuff is all there is because that's what gets click/headlines/attention etc, but there is so much good out there in the world as well.
Remember there are so many people out there fighting for good everyday that will never get the props they deserve.
You're not alone. You're never alone.
Modern computers are complex enough to be some kind of magic for people. And it is not for people related to IT - they mostly think that computers are boring.
Now I start thinking that if we had magic, like in D&D, wizards would treat magic like something everybody should know.
And now I declare myself as 5th level wizard of Creation and Protection Schools. There are also Destruction, Locking, Abstract and MetaMagical schools :D
At my job, sometimes managers have fun about developers. They make complex and hard tasks, and then right when you give task for testing, they tell "well... it's irrelevant now, because it depends on that thing we will alter very soon".
This is very hillarious, but sometimes there is too much such tasks
