My favorite interaction today: a kindly old beef farmer was telling me about the fact there are THREE fiber backbones that converge here, and when I asked about the bitcoin thing:
“Oh, I don’t know anything about the technology behind it but it sure sounds like a Ponzi scheme to me.”
I thanked him and told him he was smarter than the people who think they know anything about it.
Heads up, folks who sell on Zazzle:
Apparently they're looking for a "more active community" (read: wanting to monetize everything on their network) so they're imposing a non-contributing account fee:
So either you need to make new products all the time, or have a "Referral" associated with your account over a 15 month period or you'll be dinged for the fee.
I think this is yet another service that is finding itself as part of the print-on-demand glut.
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!
