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.

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.

If you add me to a group chat for your MLM without asking, don't complain when I flood it with photos of Sasquatch and Mothman you didn't ask for, Brenda.
