So, this is horrifying when spelt out...

It seems like the only complete antidote is spreading love and true empathy, but idfk how to do that :/

Any feedback would be incredible - trying to foster empathy for refugees and animals here seems to only be met with brick walls from the general public.

this seems to be a good explanation of cultivated identity. you have been brought up to attach to consumable things as part of your identity, as a way of thinking even if you drop out of some things.

spicy take: people treat leftist theory this same way.

without migration tools the fediverse is not truly federated. whether we're forking mastodon or sticking with it, we need them. boost. share. comment. code.

petition gargron for it to be in the next release. get it live. we need it, now.

I think #mastodon growing so quickly may have held back the #fediverse. It's considered a de facto reference implementation for #activitypub, but it's a limited implementation. It doesn't support most Actor and Object types, it's client and server are tightly coupled, and it was designed specifically for microblogging. ActivityPub was an afterthought for it and it doesn't use it anywhere near its full potential.

Now every new AP project is following suit, developing a client/sever combination specifically to handle a single Object type, any enabling federation support on a project by project basis. We need a full AP server that's not tied to a specific client. It should support AP C2S API so a user can login to any client using oauth and handle different types. A user could use one client to create events, one to manage photos, and another to write notes or articles, and they'd all be tied to the same account.

Hopefully, people will get past thinking of Mastodon, Pleroma, PixelFed, etc and just think of the ActivityPub network. I don't think the fediverse will continue to grow without this change in philosophy.

the "cheap care" chapter of this book i'm reading may be especially interesting to you all.

turns out the gender binary is an intentional tool of capitalism to extract unpaid labor from those designated as women

who could have imagined

Needing to use discord recently (hopefully only for a short time) caused a weird feeling of disconnection

I used to love video games, but in the last decade or so I've grown to feel a sense of revulsion to them, and the culture surrounding them.

I know that games can be a good medium for storytelling, mental exploration, or puzzle solving, but the idea of them makes me feel a little sick.

Doubly so for people who identify as "gamers".

Maybe it's a mental association with toxic masculinity

Stunning delve here into the rise in municipal socialism, and how councils and cooperatives can build community and prosperity from the ground up:

Things you can message friends you haven't talked to in a while right now:

- hey haven't talked to you in a while! how's it going?
- picture of a cat you found on the internet, no context
- hey remember when [good memory you share]? that was great
- picture of a cat you saw in real life, with context
- how's that [thing they mentioned last time you talked] going?
- picture of two cats
- cat pictures
- kitty pics
- kittens are the true foundation of friendship

People hold the viewpoint that in order to get people to migrate from Facebook, it must be easy to communicate with people who stay behind. Is that even possible? Does Facebook have any sort of open access to their content? Last I checked all third-party clients were wrappers around the Facebook websites because anything else wasn't viable
