Okay, I want to try to focus my spare-time-project-energy for the coming months.
I will do my very best to restrain myself to three projects:

1. Getting to a minimal playable state, so y'all can start making small virtual gardens. I'm not good at graphics, so keep expectations low for the first release.

2. , a PHP fediverse server project by @InspectorCaracal . I'm thinking of making a zatnosk-experiments branch and just do my best to run wild with it.

When I think of a future with Open Social Media, I imagine three pillars.

1) Microblogging (ActivityPub), for sharing thoughts with strangers, ephemeral community building, and broad+global reach.

2) Forum / Stable Community (no good solution yet, AFAIK), for discussing, planning, buying/selling locally. All within a distinct group of people, membership of which can be managed.

3) Peer2Peer (Scuttlebutt?), for talking directly to friends, family, nearby people, and easily sharing files.

I did not expect state-funded national news to not only cover the Fortnite blackout, but also embed a fan-tweet with an image of a butt-naked man.

But that is what Denmarks Radio (who also does tv and online news) has done.

@catherinebkrause It's true. The Danish language was the original shitpost.

In the end we took it a bit too far and broke reality.

Luckily it was a very local event, but it was pretty bad. That's why you'll only find Danes that speak English

by the way, if you're interested in things like astrophysics, cosmology, quantum mechanics, etc, a really really good youtube channel is PBS Space Time. the host (is? used to be?) a university professor and he's also a professional astrophysicist, breaking down big topics to be understandable but not so simplified to be useless or misleading like a lot of pop science stuff is. it's not dry either, it's got a lot of personality to it.

some of the video titles are a little clickbaity but i promise the content is very good

So, coming from a white semi-academic: if you are white and you wanna decolonize:

- Stop trying to get any sort of career advancement out of it. No thesis. No published paper. No grants. You do not get to exploit this.
- Be prepared to give stuff up. Be prepared to dismantle and destroy stuff that you’ve been taught to respect. Be prepared to not be liked.
- Focus on the physical. Stop the process of colonialism and get the colonist out.
- Listen to people of color, for fucks sake.

The radio in the office blasting "Fuck you I won't do what you tell me" repeatedly from the outro of Rage Against The Machine's "Killing In The Name Of" is a special kind of ironic.

Contemporary danish has an interesting habit of importing technical or niche words from english and applying a weird mix of danish and english grammar to them.

It's especially horrible when it goes wrong. Such as some danes saying "en tanks" or "en drinks" and referring to a single object ("en" means "a" and "one" at the same time).

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

tfw you make a minor edit to an .png image, and the time it takes to embed it in a pdf goes from 0.968 seconds to less than a millisecond.

That's the difference between looking at a spinner and (perceived) instantly.
