I wonder why they're concerned about tech companies but not internet service providers and the 5 television network monopolies. Tech companies must not be paying enough in bribes.

@cassolotl A while ago, you made a nice, succinct flowchart of Mastodon timeline behavior. May I use it in a Fediverse presentation? (For a LUG, at least at first.) What license, if I may redistribute?

Some #bike riding today, at Six mile run in Blackwells Mills, #NJ. Was a nice relaxing ride until my seat completely broke. Made the 6 or so miles riding to a friend's house standing up all the way a tough one. #mastobikes
