The major question I've been asking myself is: why?
Why do you use Facebook?
Why do you use Twitter?
Why do you use Instagram?
And you know what? I didn't have an answer.
I don't get any joy out of using Twitter any longer, and I definitely don't with Facebook.
I still like Instagram. it's happy. People aren't there to correct your grammar or give you shit.
Those thoughts lead me back to here. I completely forgot about this place full of nice people.
@ashfurrow Random question: we've been looking at setting up a Mastodon instance. Is there anywhere online that talks about how much resource it might cost to run one?
@craigburgess Its also interesting to see people using the favourite button as likes. Just like Birdsite changed them to.
What’s ALSO interesting is the subtle language differences and culture between here and there.
I’ve been teaching for a long time (as well as full-time designer/developer). It’s nice to start to get this out there.
So, #introduction then I guess.
My name’s Craig. I geek out on tech, design, branding, BJJ, video games, music (particularly rock and guitar music), fitness, nutrition, weightlifting, reading, writing and probably other stuff I’ve forgotten.
I share a house in Yorkshire with 2 cats and a girlfriend. The cats take up all the space.
I enjoy the odd cat GIF. Actually, if I could spend 24 hours a day looking at cat GIFs, I would.
I sound like somebody from The North in Game of Thrones.
Creative Director at Genius Division and Learn the Web. I spend my life designing stuff, teaching stuff, lifting heavy stuff and doing BJJ.
