@lmorchard What did you think of the variety? I'm into Ethiopian, so I like it. It isn't as chocolatey as I would like.

Today I learned the phrase cross-domain transmedium threats.

In short, members of a key national security-focused committee believe that objects of unknown origin are demonstrating remarkably advanced technology

 that “transmedium threats to United States national security are expanding exponentially"

X-Files is back!

I am enjoying using LogSeq and will start trying out Obsidian. These tools are so amazing!

I checked out an ebook through Seattle public library and it was delivered to both my wife's kindle app and mine. Never happened before. Seems like a pretty bad privacy/security glitch?

@wiredfire That is a cool idea! With a plugin, you could crowdsource those values and impose scores upon those sites.

I've been using RescueTime to rebuild my ability to focus.

What if websites and apps were labeled with nutritional data stating how much dopamine per hour or how many gamification PHDs are employed at the company.

More playing around with my homemade macro rig. The final image is a focus stacked composite of 120 images.

This is common weed that grows around here. I do not know its name.

Wow, Dustin Getz presents some amazing UI framework research

UIs are streaming DAGs

@Citizenkahn I’m probably using it wrong, but I feel like the official client doesn’t have a return key in iOS and replaces it is an ‘#’

Deep voice fakes fears - maybe the ubiquity of faking celebrity will error celebrity and overall, this will be good. I grew up in an age where a particular star was worshiped, but as more people gain a voice, it is about the mashup and the intention.

@Jeff thanks for the heads up! It is a very cool experiment


So everyone knows, this instance is not production and the owner will probably shut it down with the sustained load.

Warning: birdsite.live will import a lot of old content from each user, so your timeline will be filled up with old content.

Also, nothing will happen immediately after you follow, so be patient.

@wiredfire @mossop If the issue is seeing updates in your feed, it took a while but they started showing up.

I will reply to myself with a warning as well... it loads old posts so your feed will get blown out for a bit 😅

Joining mastodon is a great time to establish new habits and a new information diet.

**However** - if there is someone only on Twitter that you really want in your feed, you can "bring them over" via birdsite.live.

Just search for @someusername@beta.birdsite.live replacing someusername with the person you want to bring over.

For me, I have a private News List that is made up of journalists, which I will recreate over here as well.
