So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.

The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.

I just saw this sign. These kids are great.

Made my first very own #crochet pattern! And of course, it's as geeky as I am :p

I've always loved the way that ethanol looks like a little creature, so I made an amigurumi version - because why not? Meet Ethan, the cuddly creature that gets you drunk!

Should I continue doing this? There's loads of chemical compounds that have a fun structure to make :)

1984: We can't talk here, they might have bugs to wiretap us.

2018: Bug, order me some pizza!

Kids are adorable.

My 8 year old niece asked me earlier "are you going to be rich after you finish pixelfed?". I had to explain to her that its free and open source.

She is my #1 fan 😁

Dear Fediverse,

Soon, some venture capitalist will put $5 million into a startup that offers free fediverse accounts with unlimited storage, etc.

Unless every other instance instantly blocks such a service from Day 1, you can kiss your fediverse goodbye and say hello to a new Gmail. Once network effects kick in, they will make the rules.

It _can_ happen here but you have an opportunity to kill it before it does.

#centralisation #fediverse

If someone blocks or mutes you, using other accounts to circumvent that block is not good. Ever.

Because it apparently needs to be repeated: DO NOT harass people you don't like. Not even if you think they deserve it. Not even if for some reason you think they're not really people because they're famous.

If someone's breaking the rules, report them and your admins will handle it.

If they're not, leave them alone.

Either way, DON'T HARASS THEM.

SILICON VALLEY: Hey, you know how we could fix transportation?
ME: By decisively shifting towards mass transit instead of having massive concrete jungles based on the premise that every single person will have their own $40,000 deathtrap of pollution?
SILICON VALLEY: No, we're gonna have the deathtraps, just without any drivers!
ME: oh...

dear new mastodon users stop caring about abstract notions like "being on-brand" or "getting popular" and just spend all day talking about shit you actually enjoy

Jack: I can't kick off the Nazis because shareholders demand I maximize their value
