I think Boston Dynamics' business model is just to produce a gif of a random robot every few years

In the meantime I'm also trying out Rotonde at: dat://7c82df45eeacf7c2cf5b8d65abd9678b04c6765eb43d72f941f41f6eadbdf812/ (quick intro here: louis.center/p2p-social-networ )

Is it me or... we had a moment when Mastodon was in a lot of conversations re:twitter. Now we're having a moment where twitter is heavily criticised (trump, moderation, blue checkmarks), but I see almost no mentions of Mastodon as a simple alternative?
(and I don't believe it's because *these people* already left to Mastodon)

Nouvelle alternative à Twitter : twtxt
Exit Mastodon, Scuttlebutt ou autre Beaker/Rotonde, là avec twtxt on fait du texte simple.

Et comme c'est un truc pour *hackers*, je l'héberge sur Keybase.

Several weeks later and it's still really fucking magical that I'm hosting my own instance of a social network that I can use to talk to my friends????

Hey bot allies, botsin.space is now running a slightly customized version of the mastodon codebase.

When you're logged in, you can create an app in the preferences section, and get an access token right there. No OAuth hoops!

A weird side effect of joining Mastodon is I kind of want to blog more? Or, I feel like I can actually share ideas in progress in a way that birdsite and its pressures of performance sort of foreclose upon?

Oh btw I gave a talk yesterday about the artistic possibilities of Mastodon called "Infrastructure as Shitpost"

“The rich - through purchasing such biological enhancements - could become, literally, better than the rest; more intelligent, healthier and with far greater life-spans.

At that point, it will make sense to cede power to this ‘enhanced’ class.”—Yuval Noah Harari, Is inequality about to get unimaginably worse?
