It will haunt your nightmares for years, but the result of this musical experiment is amazing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7TGMMuVjCs
And yet I also benefit from the rapid spread of information that does need to be sent and seen immediately.
Even though sometimes the call to action keeps spreading long after the resolution has already occurred.
There needs to be some way to ensure that edits and updates spread with the original message but without making that itself a means of abuse.
Or err on the side of slowing down, because things just move too fast for humans to keep up.
ActivityPub: The "Worse Is Better" Approach to Federated Social Networking https://blog.dereferenced.org/activitypub-the-worse-is-better-approach-to-federated-social-networking
sudden memory of momsense
One time my brother was visiting home. Without asking my mom decided to do his laundry, including his pair of pants where he kept his iPod. Of course she didn’t check his pockets, and the iPod went through the wash, ruining it. My mom didn’t apologize for that or for touching his things without asking and instead blamed him for keeping things in his pocket.
@fluffy I managed to do just that for the past half a year. It worked amazingly well. Gonna recommend it to everyone in 2019.
Instantly-updating social media was a mistake.
A beautiful mistake, but a mistake nonetheless.
I don’t think human beings were wired for the ability to post a musing to the internet and immediately have everyone else see it and respond immediately. Not at this scale, anyway.
This is why I prefer blogging, and want to get back to that as my primary social medium.

Seattle-based music/code/comics critter. Vaguely friend-shaped. Fibro-spoony, queer, and anxious as heck. Handle with care.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
