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'.

@eurasierboy I did the update to Amaroq and uploading images works fine now.

@CobaltVelvet I tried downloading iOS app Toot!don! since I had problems uploading images with Amaroq but I don’t seem to be able to get octodon.social to work with Toot!don! Any suggestions? Thanks.

@eurasierboy having a “media upload failure” uploading images using Amaroq. I can post ok from Safari on iPhone.

Twitter won't suspend people who call for the nuclear annihilation of an entire country, but will suspend you if you say "fuck" to a celebrity
