my birthday's coming up soon so I bought a fancy electric kettle with temperature controls and now I can make green tea without scorching it

Cats woke me up bright and early today. They must be so excited to be home after their week away

Yesterday was rough emotionally but I'm doing great today so yay I suppose!

Yeah. More than once I've wondered what we'd do if Google did to activitypub what they did to email/xmpp, ie launch a service that uses activitypub, but eventually extends it and starts closing out the decentralized players more and more. It's embrace, extend, extinguish all over again.

Getting and using an activitypub account has to be as easy as possible for average people, without relying on surveillance industry players if we don't want to go the same way eventually.

Repost of something I put on Twitter, in response to a post about "Shuttering Google Reader Killed Blogging"

a repeat mistake: being excited about a decentralized system's success because a big player moves in, becoming reliant on it, not providing a better alternative, big player leaves, decentralized system dies from shock

see also xmpp and gtalk

hoping to do better...

I've hit the point of investment in ffxiv where I have too many things to do every day and it's only going to get worse from here because top of the list is saving for a house now

software take:

`curl https://[...] | sh` is not any more insecure than any other method of installing software. if you don't trust the person distributing that software to not try to own you through the install script, *why are you installing their software*

it's not like `tar xvf blah.tgz; ./configure; make; make install` is any more secure, unless you want to pretend like you're reading those configure and makefiles

You stand before this court accused of felony gender in the first degree. How do you plead?

Here is an obligatory picture of the culprit taken immediately after her crime.
