Fun thing to do at the library: walk through the aisles until a book's spine catches your eye. Ideally it's a pretty well-worn book; for this technique to work it needs to have had a fair number of readers over the years.
Grasp the book's spine and hold it so the pages hang down. Find a an air gap where the pages naturally hang open, and read those pages.
Today I found this lovely passage on randomness/entropy in a book called "Paradox" by Jim Al-Khalili.
@darius bad thing is that you cannot know if these are the pages a lot of readers have come back to often because they found them so interesting or if the content is so boring or unnerving in a generally good book that most readers had to put the book down at this point, placing it on just these pages. Surprisingly quite the same as with most "users stayed on page x for y seconds"-metrics.
Good thing is that you do this for fun and not for metrics or optimization of decision-making processes.
@nilsreichert right it's just "content of note" with no particular judgement attached
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
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!
