Pinned ping

I "like" posts to show support.

emoji reactions would be really bad for me, because I'd need to choose an emoji that best describes my feelings. if you know anything about autistic ppl, you can probably see why that's a problem.

if I like your sad post, that's not me enjoying that you're sad, it's me showing I care.

if you post about a cool thing on the other hand, I like it because I think it's cool too.

thank you.

Here are two ways to boost with CW. One's very bad for accessibility (opens a new window, closes mastodon client, etc), the other is very good for accessibility (opens in the mastodon UI itself). I would prefer if more ppl did the latter.

Doing it the "good" way also respects boost visibility settings! (did you know you can hide boosts from your home feed? it's behind the "show settings" button on the home feed column!)

I interact with "strangers'" toots because I still have that unhealthy thing where I just try to read everything on my home feed, so I avoid following them.

I'm a cryptocurrency advocate, not because I wanna get rich off of it.

but because I want kids to use it.

banks are ageist, cryptocurrencies aren't. power to the kids.

make a tor/i2p clone (darknet)-cum-cryptocurrency, and node reliability is how you "mine" it.

if your node is unreliable, you don't earn much - but you still earn enough. you still earn *something*. and something is more than nothing. and if you have something, you have a say on the network.

thus, it's decentralized, not just distributed. it's inherently better than bitcoin. (and it doesn't waste power doing "nothing" - each node would be a full darknet node, doing caching, storage, etc...)

make a cryptocurrency where anyone running a node has a say on it.

make it decentralized, not just distributed.

torrents, on the other hand? pop open a torrent client, "Create Torrent", send it around.

mastodon? also pretty similar.

bitcoin requires the algorithm to give you "something" before you have a say on anything. once you have that something, you can interact with the network and do things.

but doing so takes away that something. it's very similar to centralized systems.

just like a person can run a centralized network (say, cloudflare), an algorithm can also run a centralized network (say, bitcoin).

both are distributed, and both are centralized. just because you can run your own node doesn't mean you have a say on things.

this is unlike mastodon, where by running your own node, you *do* have a say on things. not only can you moderate a whole part of the network, you can choose who you interact with, and how.

providing the best quality of life for "disabled" and "different" ppl is the future of humanity.

because furries.

I mean, just think about it, random genetic mutations could give a human scales. at first, this wouldn't be entirely beneficial to them, but future generations could have more or less developed scales.

if we decide to kill them or let them suffer, future generations won't have scales. and this'll suck.

humans /like/ weird. eugenics is bad for weird.

we should /help/ our species evolve. by attempting to keep it as it currently is, it'll just lead to the end of our species.

(this is why we need public replies to show up on the public timeline btw)

imagine if public replies actually showed up on the public timeline

we'd have tumblr

`while (x --> 0)` is fun

Like y'all know how expensive a System 76 laptop goes for? And a Purism phone? Mycroft hardware?

But if I could just cop an Acer laptop, Samsung device and a Echo Dot, they finna come for your whole life.

If your F/LOSS activism isn't about including and reaching the masses where they are, you're WORSE than the people locking away control of their machines.
