I'm trying to think about how to come up with a decentralised emojo system

So I guess today I need to put more work into organising this #AndMyAxe thing.

So yeah, if any of you are interested in joining a group dedicated to cooperatively making open source stuff (hardware, software, writing, art, whatever) check it out. We are just starting so there is almost nothing there at the moment but I will be working on that throughout the day and if you want to help build this than that would be awesome.

One of my favorite idioms is Polish, and basically means "this is none of my business, so I'm staying out of it": "nie mój cyrk, nie moje małpy", translated as "not my circus, not my monkeys".

All this time the new Stranger Things has been out and nobody thought to call @gargron The Demogargron

What can I do to spread word about Mastodon even further?

Does anyone want to start an orginisation that just brings people together online to make small specialised apps? Like desklet things for Ubuntu/Mint and stuff like that.

The purpose would be to give an easy opening into open source projects and to put people in contact with each other. We have lots of developers and lots of artists and writers and stuff.

Also I am annoyed with the world and want to do something.

"Heart of Texas, a Russian-controlled Facebook group that promoted Texas secession, announced a rally on May 21, 2016 to 'Stop Islamification of Texas.'

A separate Russian-sponsored group advertised a 'Save Islamic Knowledge' rally for the same place and time.

Protesters showed up in downtown Houston. Interactions between the two groups eventually escalated into confrontation.

Russians managed to pit Texans against each other for the bargain price of $200."
