Ugh I have no idea how to write / . Why is everything so difficult? It feels the same way when I have to write a cover letter... 😕 😒 😅

OK, I am a software engineer? Interested in interpersonal relationships and future and AI and speculative fiction? Unable to create art or to have a physical exercise but able to chat on the internets from the comfort of my couch (which is especially comfortable when my spouse is there)?

“In removing sex &nudity entirely from the platform, ’s new policy misses the fact that sexual subcultures are a crucial part of public life & contribute to critical social conversations &meaningful political alliances” writes the fab @ZahraStardust theconversation.com/sexual-sub

"NSFW ban was in the works for about six months as an official project, ... [it] was going to happen anyway"

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

Okay so tumblr is banning rotating cubes saying it's porn and facebook banned saying "i'm gay" saying it's sexual solicitation and Twitter always seemed like it could disappear at any moment

I feel like we need to be getting ready for Mass Migration to Mastodon, which means we need to fix anything that keeps Mastodon from being usable, and there is in fact something that keeps Mastodon from being usable, there's one specific thing, it's this:
