I was inspired by @tulsi to translate into English Jorge Riechmann's intro to the essay collection "Socialism can only come by bicycle". It was made much faster by Google Translate, I corrected a few phrases here and there and moved things around so they flow better.

Koichi gets to the protagonist of his very own otome game in today's episode, "Sometimes You Have to Pee Your Pants to Grow Your Stand"!!! explainjojo.com/episodes/s04e0

SomeBODY once told me
The world will end in fire
Somebody else said in i-ice
From what I've TASTED of desire
I gotta go with fire
But if it had to perish twi-ice -

Well the years start coming but when they stop coming
I know enough of hate to hit the ground running
And say that for destruction it's true
That ice is great and it'll do too

I'm about to give a talk about intentional community building here on Friend Camp at the first Dat Night meetup! datnight.org

It's kind of janky but I love it and it makes stuff like Shortcut (shortcut.thisamericanlife.org) possible

I would like to give a shoutout to Rob Oschorn's Gentle, which is word alignment software. You give it an mp3 of people talking and a transcript and it spits back a JSON file with millisecond-level fairly accurate guesses as to timestamps for when each word starts and stops. github.com/lowerquality/gentle

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 @emma

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!
