The proposed solutions focus on removing weaker players from the ecosystem and undermining the hate clusters from within. Johnson and his team suggest that, rather than attacking a highly vocal and powerful player, social media platforms remove smaller clusters and randomly remove individual members. Removing just 10% of members from a hate cluster would cause it to begin to collapse.

In an effort to bring peace to the fediverse, I'd just like to say that I prefer vim, even though I've never learned emacs.

Continuing to get into podcasts: media I'm intended to download, consume on my schedule, and use my way, on my devices. Also, the ads aren't watching/hearing me back, which I appreciate if I'm going to tolerate ads.

Is there a name for that "my bunny is to big" meme template? That thing slaps.

Rereading "17776" and it is good! This is the future of football folks!

Kinda sick today, but if my boss doesn't work at my location, aren't I always working remotely anyway?

Asshole techbros are what will break federation, not blocking.

Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it.

I adore seeing so many people working on so many projects that fall into the broad category of "nobody does that because it's too complicated to approach anymore and it'll never work anyway"

People designing new hardware architectures and operating systems and browser engines and networks and community spaces, y'all feed me and I'm always hungry.

Keep up the great yet popularly futile work.
