Yo @kev @mike what's the software used to create the Fosstodon Hub? Cheers.

I'm sleepy but also busy... I should probably go to bed.

Asking someone a question is completely different from looking the answer up. Humans are able to contextualise questions, highlight the important bits and add any info from personal experience, as well as tailor the answer to the the asker and their situation. This can't be done with static information. Saying "just google it/lmgtfy/google is free sweaty" is not a valid or clever answer.

Having access to near limitless information is not the same as being part of a network of knowledge.

I feel like I don't explicitly state this often enough, but I want to see a future where most people are on federated social networks. Mastodon, Pleroma, Misskey, etc, instead of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

#Trees do more than just sequester #carbon, indeed that's the least benefit they bring in the war on #GlobalWarming / #GlobalHeating / #ClimateEmergency. They modulate weather patterns at small & large scales:
* Cooling surface temperatures
* Increasing cloud cover and albedo
* Reducing cirrus cloud (the kind that warms us more than it cools)
* In sufficient numbers, trees directly pump rainclouds inland, spreading growth and sequestration even into deserts and dustbowls!

Don't try to be great, try to do something great and become great in the process.

Just noticed, I've already gone 2 months without having play services on phone. It really is feasible to get by without google nowdays. alternatives to many apps are finally getting decent.

@jdormit @patrickloonstra @dansup

I've tried to explain federation in simple terms here:

switching.social/federated-sit

but if you want a tl/dr then I'd say this:

If your phone company screws up, you can switch providers, and you can still call your friends because all phone companies are part of the single public phone network.

Federated social networks work the same way.

"Video games emerge as workers need to engage creatively in the most mundane of tasks to get an edge over fellow workers, glamorizing the violence of competition and the otherwise mundane process of learning arbitrary information and gestures through play. The arc of most games involves getting better and better at recognizing a particular set of patterns and deploying a particular set of skills ... to the point where the actual controls become second nature"

Me: *Rummaging through the kitchen*

SO: What are you looking for?

Me: You said you bought food yesterday. I am looking for it.

SO: It's mostly in the fridge.

Me: *Opens fridge*

Me: Oh. You bought food source code. I am not in the mood for compiling this morning.
