this is a fantastic thread on what social media can be if we design it to be slower, throttling virality instead of enhancing it

"Social media platforms should run small, and slow, and cool to the touch."

we need a combination of neopets and ganbreeder. when will we have gans smart enough to combine social software together like it can with images.

For all my colleagues who asked about my t-shirt today. It's a unique piece from @glitchlogos by @darius

fuck. instagram but its 100% made of GANs recycling frames of movies mixed with peoples "personalities" is totally going to be a thing

I have making some pretty impressive / newspapers...

GitHub is broken I can't upload or make a new file from the web.

I resent that my computer, the most complex and powerful machine I'll likely ever use, is turned on by some pissant little five-cent plastic button like it's a shitty VCR from the 90's. I want a massive ornate copper knife switch, as long as my forearm, with the lower position hand-lettered "HALT" and the engaged position labelled "COMPUTE." When I go to use my computer, I want it to know I MEAN it.

What the fuuuuuuck how have I never heard of the Landless Worker's Movement

It's a horizontal squatting organization in Brazil somewhat akin to the Diggers, who occupy unused land it and just build farming communities on them. And it's worked. A lot of their squats have been recognized by the state. They now have over 1.5 *million* members, and I've never fucking heard of them

I have never gotten into using org-mode myself but have been reading about it and seeing how many people swear by it for ages.

Just came across org-web and it looks like it might be a good starting point for a number of things. I really like that we are still experimenting with the basic premise arranging text on a page and what that means.

Is there a name for the distinction between different types of social networks where comments are their own 'thing' and networks where they are always attached to their parent?
