the whole #mrrobot plot is just an ordinary day in my mind.
i want something like #fosstodon for online forums. y'know those old-school phpbb boards.
You talk of overthrowing power with violence as your tool
You speak of liberation and when the people rule
Well ain't it people rule right now, what difference would there be?
Just another set of bigots with their rifle-sights on me
You wouldn't let just anyone read your diary.
Let's say you don't even write down embarrassing or too personal things. Just ordinary activities.
You sure as hell don't want anyone to READ YOUR FUCKING DIARY.
This is why internet #privacymatters.
And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. "This is it... this is where I belong..." I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...
@lightmyfire not that I knew about it at the time, but the website for the movie space jam still exists and hasn't changed since it was initially released...
So like... 1996
@lightmyfire And another thing: those different emotes they had on forums and so on, before there were emoji in unicode, which apparently started in 2010.
I liked those, lots of in-jokes and so on that are lost, but I suppose that's just people drifting away from those forums in general.
The effect is that there's no replacement for these kind of things in the same way, they're not necessarily "lost". Now usage of these things is more unified.
