I think about the fediverse the way tech-savvy librarians thought about the internet in the 80s; a place of fantastic possibilities for information, knowledge, and humanity . Almost none of that ethos is currently being willfully nurtured or tapped. Maybe that culture can't be reawakened, or reinvented, but l think it's being stuck on stupid to not try; its downright reckless.
Yesterday I heard someone on the radio arguing against working from home, and I havent been able to get it out of my head.
When the person she was "debating" with said "I save 90 minutes a day on the commute" she replied:
"I can imagine that being a good thing if it translated to 90 minutes more work, but people just use it to have a leisurely breakfast, or spend time cooking a nicer evening meal instead of being productive."
I just cant understand how you can be so broken as a person.
This photo of the sun might not look too impressive... until you realize it was taken at night – not looking up but looking down, through the entire Earth, using neutrinos rather than light. Amazing! https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap980605.html

939,935 Americans have died, and 98,768,438 more cases have been reported since Trump promised he'd "immediately" sign an "order" to give out the miracle cure he got at Walter Reed, for free.
He promised it, and then he just walked away. https://nitter.net/realDonaldTrump/status/1314252606110412806
I looked this up a couple of weeks ago and I cannot believe it's been 11 years since MCA died.
@historyofpunkrock I saw them about 2 week ago (in Melbourne). Here they are singing "And if you should see Dave". Also, the current full band.
