Feeling lost on Mastodon? Wondering what all of those timelines and options mean?
I did a video presentation about Mastodon for Michigan!/usr/group (mug.org)
Here's the video if you're interested:
If you have some spare Liberapay cash laying around would you please consider sending it to Sophie Lagace?

Suffice to say they're going to though a rough patch and could use the financial support.

I think that the world will be a much better place when folks realize that everything is not meant for them.
Even if the previous iteration was directly aimed at you the new version might not be aimed at attracting your attention.
Movies, music, etc.; it might not be meant for you.
"But I've been a fan since the beginning"
It's not for you.

It's not for you

If you're in the USA and want some quality role playing material you can get some of the overstock from Evil Hat publishing at a great price:

I'd consider it a win that some journalist thinks enough folks on the Mastodon / Fediverse community are going to click and spread their article.
Seriously, trolling an entire community for clicks is pretty much part-and -parcel for journalists.

I really don't like Slack's new logo:
omg at the shoddy work pentagram did for slack’s rebrand https://daringfireball.net/2019/01/pentagram_slack_range_of_possibilities
my initial response is to laugh at this stuff, but having seen how much rebrands cost — even narrowing to just ‘logo mark design exploration’ — it makes me feel a little sick. it is not unusual for agencies to charge companies upwards of $100k. even a very conservative CMO would spend $50k. that’s more than most people make in a whole year.
