masculinity, hot take after an overdose on math Show more
"Masculinity" is a meta-trait.
* People can have traits that distinguish them from other people.
* Two people with the same trait never express it identically; ergo, a trait is actually set of trait-expressions
* Masculinity describes a subset of such a trait-expression (for some traits), i.e. masculinity is a property that distinguishes trait-expressions from each other.
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 #GardenGame 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.
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.

Now he's just a small fry
He left his home and kissed his mommy goodbye,
Singing "Soon I'm gonna be a jedi"

"nationalising x", global internet Show more
Every time you call for nationalisation of [insert monopolistic tech company], you sound like an american arguing for imperialism.
Youtube/facebook/instagram/google/amazon/etc might be owned by american companies, but their power reaches and dominates globally.
Nationalising that will not give that power to "the people". It will at best give it to "the american people", and at worst to the state("s") occupying most of north america and waging perpetual war: USA

Yeah, I know that's a bit silly but I found that funny :)
Though there's probably already tons of lame pun like this one, I still felt motivated enough to draw it ;)
And that's one of my favorite albums.
