I am a 29 year old cis straight guy. I live in Milan, , where I work in software development, but I don't really toot about it, so don't worry!

I like to (especially by public transport), to read, and to practice .

I'm on Mastodon since April 2017. Some sensitive topics I talk about (always with CWs) are mental health and Italian politics.

⭐ My more laid-back account is @miramarco, you can hit me up there!

A while ago I spoke positively about people shortening my nickname to “Marco”.

I retract that and I am asking everybody to stop calling me that way.

Marco is NOT my name and has never been; the nickname I chose is “miramarco”. I’d rather hear it shortened to “mira” than “marco” to be honest.

If Jack Dorsey was a Black dude, he'd have been fired 6 months after he got the job.

But America has such a tolerance for incompetent white men.

someone on twitter said:

Voting isn't choosing your character, it's choosing your opponent.

Which is an interesting contextualization and good argument against letting perfect be the enemy of good re: candidates and moving the overton window etc.

I find it nice and kinda wholesome that the four finalists for this year’s Turner Prize grouped together and asked to receive the prize collectively, and that the jury agreed to do so

(I’ve never watched IASIP, but I’ve seen enough references and parodies to make that association in my mind.)

There’s a Jeep ad on Spotify that uses a light-hearted string music to express levity, but it’s the tune from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, so it makes me imagine that Jeep is going to screw up everything

Two people have chosen the “it's complicated” option in this poll so far, and this makes me glad that I've included it

I've said this before and I'll say it again. Running PV for the last couple of years has made it very clear to me that the proliferation of harassment and abuse on the fedi is largely because creators of software refuse to deal with it.

Not because it's hard or challenging. They just refuse to try.

Whether it's because they are sympathetic or lazy or don't want to harm their friends is irrelevant.

These decisions always result in repeating cycles of harm against vulnerable communities.
