@alexbuzzbee However I'm no law student, I really need to ask around the class so that I won't miss anything that'd be obvious to one
@alexbuzzbee I've started early with getting a lot of the reading done, I think the advice they're giving is to just do extracurricular research to enable a fresh perspective. The subject is really interesting so far so hopefully I can do that.
@alexbuzzbee I mean the material is literally thousands of years old, makes it hard to be novel. You could've thrown in unnecessary modern pop culture references?
@alexbuzzbee I've not done a whole lot of essays at uni but I'll have to relearn it for internet law this semester. I am apprehensive.
@alexbuzzbee I have no idea whether that would be a doozie or hard tbh haha
@alexbuzzbee Fair enough, what's the paper on anyway?
@alexbuzzbee I don't think I've ever been 3 weeks early for anything, neat
I was quite befuddled earlier, as I noticed that many instances were using glitch-soc, but I had this confused with the code collaboration website.
I was thinking "Oh, that's clever, they must have it setup so that anyone on the instance can edit the server code in real time! Neat!"
Of course after I realised my confusion, I figured that that wouldn't make sense and would lead to many bugs, crashes and tragedy. An easier way to remotely collab in real time like that would be nice tho.
I just realized: One thing I'm missing from the Fediverse are event calendars.
I'm currently in a group of people planning a climate protest, and we're using Facebook to post events there for people to subscribe to.
I'm not aware of any federated social network / tool where I could post a calendar event and people could subscribe to it.
That would be a really useful feature to get more people off Facebook.
Facebook reportedly plans to integrate its messaging services on Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger
@theonion The enemy is among us. How embarrassed will I be if I end up squeezing a some man's breast and going to bed without cheese and biscuits?
