cybre ≠ cyber

cybre describes an optimism, a hope for the possibility of technology rather than a fear of its oppression
cybre represents the reality of what is now possible, in addition to the mythology of what was thought possible
cybre belongs to the indomitable individuals and indefatigable communities who have carved out a home in an invisible layer above reality

also cybre was available as a domain name

reminder that TERF stands for trans exclusionary reactionary fuckwit because there's nothing radical or feminist about being a transphobe

mastodon instances are just the vaults from fallout, including the "weird gimmick is used as a social experiment" aspect

Skwurl relayed

So... There seems to be a common misconception where people assume all of Mastodon has 180,000 users because mastodon.social says it's home to that number of users.

The real number is closer to 1,5 million. Those 180k are only mastodon.social users and there are like... 3,000 other servers?

I wonder what I should do. 🤔

I was DISTINCTLY TOLD, in the 1990s, that if we put computers into all the things it would make us all super-smart and super-sexy and super-kind and we would all live in houses made of translucent plastic and acid dance and rainforests and we would specifically NOT become a society of giant raging dumbass jerks selling fake nutritional supplements to Nazis.

There were RECEIPTS. Money changed HANDS.

I wish to complain to the MANAGEMENT.

The dream of the 90's is alive on Mastodon.

I boost a bunch. Some of it is #art some is #politics or #shitposting.

If you want to hide a user's boosts when you follow them, you can go to their profile and choose "hide boosts from [handle]" from the menu.

My 11 year old son loves making mazes that are super complicated and near impossible to do.

He has just taken it to the next level with this work in progress.

At work today a bright eyed intern asked me to explain what the internet was like in the late 90s, in the age before Google.

I feel so old.

"That is the best part of being gay: you always have all the stationary"

As part of my ongoing need to understand literally everything about ABBA I watched Muriel's Wedding tonight.

Such an odd charming little film. Also, after watching so much stuff with the members of ABBA themselves in it, it was so strange to have them only as pictures pinned to a wall and in song.
