Pixelfed has become the #1 alternative to Instagram. 😳 😮 😄
Apps like Apple Maps, @firstname.lastname@example.org & Google Maps rely on @email@example.com’s GTFS data set to provide their users with stop information, but PTV haven’t updated it with this year’s tram stop changes despite claims they’d update it “weekly or as needed” 😕 https://www.data.vic.gov.au/data/dataset/ptv-timetable-and-geographic-information-2015-gtfs
delighted to see that https://butt.holdings is still online
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
And now I'm announcing the second and final project I'm starting today: "Memex", a new and hopefully more hackable, less crackable browser engine.
I'll only be able to implement the absolute basics of Memex, so if any of you want it to actually be something please, please contribute!
Society seems to hinge on a set of assumptions. Things which everyone is expected to have. Three in particular. A functioning bank account (ideally with a debit card). A fixed, permanent address. A mobile phone number.
It makes it difficult for those of us who often slip through the cracks. Because believe me, if you find yourself without even one of these, a lot in society becomes rather more troublesome.
I love my goth gf 🖤 @mirghtaol
