Small mention that I moved from .tech to my own instance — @dgold
I mean, I love that I’m still getting followers over here 😍 but I’d also love to keep the conversation going 😎
I know I've only been here a week or so, but I've moved to my own personal (pleroma) instance, and will be posting from @dgold in future. 🤓
A consistent problem I have with post-apocalyptic fiction, particularly the Walking Dead, is the view of a world where everyone is amoral and out for themselves. That's not a very good description of how people actually behave in crises but it is a good description of normative behavior under capitalism.
Let's keep it funky. As ANOTHER one of 45's criminal entourage gets convicted, one point remains crystal.
The only reason this fool is still POTUS is because he is racist rich white guy. That's it.
He, as well as his administration, are woefully under qualified for the position, have been caught lying multiple times, and have shown an absolute disdain for the law.
If Obama had done 1/10th of what 45 is doing, he would be viewed as the worst in history.
But white people LOVE 45
Went and visited family friends yesterday, discovered the husband's family made aliyah from Morocco in 1955. So, we had baba ghounoush, matbucha, tabbouleh, worlds greatest falafel, couscous with chicken broth. Arak may have been consumed. … https://ascraeus.org/micro/1534710801
The politics of Mastodon
I found this article about #forkoff and then politics of the Mastodon project interesting and troubling. Sadly not *surprising* because this is an open source project and this kinda thing is endemic in OSS.
More diversity, and more less-privileged voices at the table please.
Alex Jones Controversies
Have to be honest, I laughed a little.
Mostly noise, some deliberate. I blog at ascraeus.org & dgold.eu
