Today I realized that I cannot expect people on the Internet to have heard of the Geek Social Fallacies any more.

The Geek Social Fallacies are five things that geeks often believe about How Socializing Should Work, that cause a lot of conflict. I've found them to be pretty useful as a way to put a handle on certain concepts, and maybe even avoid going into bad situations.

(Looking at them in 2017, I find myself wondering how many of the GSFs the design of most social networks is running straight into...)

On the more run down side of town, you can see delivery trucks dropping off smartdoors all the time. Lots of households order a door, but the freeware version only lets you lock your door for 30 days, and then it's time to have some other vendor drop by to install a new door and start the 30 day cycle all over again.

None of us have money to subscribe.

It's either that or you have to watch an ad to enter your house and no one's got time for that. Keep them free doors comin'.

On the #NYC #subway this afternoon, we sat down next to a guy practicing an art I didn’t know existed: freehand paper or cardboard cutting. His specific medium is discarded lottery cards.

He said he did once snag a winning card, all $2 dollars’ worth of it.

I Asked whether I should worry about Google saying they are going to start in flagging sites with forms but not as unsafe if I have no forms on my website.
