roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism

Gravity happens because all matter in the universe lives in fear of the inverse square, so it huddles together for warmth and comfort 😌

looking at the fediverse and saying "I don’t see how this product scales over time" is usually a sign that you’ve looked at the fediverse but you haven’t really seen it.
