That Is Precisely To Foreknow

She was posting
all of the plums
who were during an icebox

or whom
she is probably centrifuging
towards breakfast

Smite us
he will have been delicious
strangely sweet
but plenty cold

"Technology reveals us to ourselves as we always in fact were: networked, distributed, laced with code." theguardian.com/books/2011/nov (from Kirshenbaum's _Track Changes_ which I am now reading)

I like the idea that an extraterrestrial might look at a parade and a computer and come to the conclusion that, enh, they're basically the same thing

note that this is a very 2011 take and I'm not sure I agree with it but I admire the pithy phrasing at least. Kirshenbaum follows up by quoting Robert Pinsky: "I find the computer utterly a human artifact. It reeks of us, as do our trombones, and cars, and scissors, and parades, and pizzas. Technology is exactly like humanity. It is our baby, and we are its." from wired.com/1999/01/diaries-2/

if I'm being honest I've never really enjoyed a book of poems without reading a book *about* that book of poems first. I guess this is why people get literature degrees, you just get all of that reading-books-about-books thing out of the way in one go

"The Luxurious Toast emote now allows players to sit for as long as they desire" is a pretty good sentence bungie.net/en/News/Article/478

"The Program on Advanced Divination, a four-day funded workshop focused on the development of new divinatory practices, running Sept 19-22 in LA.

Fellowship applications open from now until July 1."

"The program is a four day workshop which will bring together a select group of practitioners, artists, designers, and scholars to collaborate in an effort to invent and test a series of prototype divination practices."

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
