@jerry Voting (ideally) operates as a choice. But it can also be a signal. Not voting or voting third parties conveys useful information about the electorate. It’s completely legitimate in our system, in which, unlike Australia, we are not compelled to vote. The US system also includes so much disincentive to voting on several axes that scolding individual voters is arguably misplaced. I support attempts to persuade non voters to vote, and object to attempts to bully them.

@jerry I think the government no longer responds to voters and just responds to money. And that hence we have to find other ways of being citizens besides voting.

@specter Can I just? I ran one for years without knowing there was a vent underneath. 🤷🏾‍♂️

@danielhglus Good luck. I’ve so failed at that and I really dig Rust even!

What I love about the Web is that we've managed to wire together three languages - HTML, CSS and Javascript - that each have utterly different character-level syntaxes, down to quoting and escaping and reserved symbols, and expect the result to not just coexist in a single file, but interoperate. And then we wrap it in a fourth syntax, HTTP, and sometimes a fifth, PHP, for templating.

You'd think after 30 years we'd have invented something saner. But hello, we're humans, have you met us?

Hey devs this is an important announcement. I will be working with popular leftist youtuber Noncompete to create a peertue instance and I am looking for people to help me out. If you have any experience working with peertube or UI design or want to help shoot me a dm!

We are going to make something that can really have a shot at combating youtube and I think now might be a tipping point for us to make a big push.

junegunn's fzf has just saved me this month. I do not know what I'd have done without it. Weep, I guess. FZF!

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂
