Tonight my Discord movie pals and I are watching "Times Square" (youtube.com/watch?v=_YzK4X8OAg), and we were just treated to a high-shool-student's mini documentary about Kathleen Hanna as our pre-feature bonus.

I have never really thought about the Panama Canal, but now I am really into this diagram of it using Wikipedia's railway-line conventions. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama_C

This GDC talk might be entertaining/horrifying for people in the greater tech world. It's about how two guys created a script to generate AND publish 1500 slot games to Google Play simply by entering a theme word. They made $50k from ads because they think the games were so awful people were desperate to click through to something more fun. Also maybe a vision of the future of algorithmically dominated cultural production gdcvault.com/play/1025766/1-50

62-year old Karen from HR: "When we start using #LibreOffice, can I still use my macros?"
Me: "What do you use macros for?"

*shows me her self-built HR shadow IT beast that pulls data from the moon and exceeds Slack in RAM usage* wtf Karen

Just watched a woman in a Joy Division shirt at the airport demand to be upgraded to first class. For some reason this feels like an incongruity.

I got to see an old friend at Slate Run Farm today. She’s still living the good life out here.

First sight I saw getting off the plane in Columbus for a short visit back home. I have a deep fondness for Bob Evans, so this feels right.

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!
