The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.
We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.
The internet is far from instant. People change every moment. We have to stop condemning each other.
I'm not against debate, but remember we're all suffering and the below each side of an argument is someone suffering.
So Insight Timer has a "no promotion" rule for recordings. I couldn't recycle my #MorningMantras to post on the app because of this. Fine. I prefer the meditations to not have ads, I get it.
The problem becomes in how to properly credit the musician whose music I am graciously using. I think some are doing it in the description of the meditation audio. I'll have to check. Otherwise I need all new music.
Wondering if many just aren't following the licenses.
I'm on BBC Marketplace this morning talking about times when AI was not smart enough https://www.marketplace.org/shows/marketplace-morning-report/artificial-intelligence-smart-earthworm
Our podcast is NOT live tonight, but at a special time tomorrow, Friday April 26. Why?

Just got to share my love for mastodon and the fediverse in a lecture about decentralised social media today in Norway, Gjøvik. Pretty fun, and thanks to everyone who showed up to hear me talk.
Next one will be the 30th of april in Bergen city in Norway.
I've forgotten to put my last couple posts on @write_as. I like sharing in as many places as possible. I haven't quite figured out how to use my Write.as page effectively. I suppose that's okay. I have to remind myself I'm a human and not a brand looking to conquer everyone's feed. I suppose that plays into my latest post on painting myself as a victim. https://write.as/sikkdays/victim
There's some danger in attaching yourself to labels when you're dealing with diagnosis in #MentalHealth. Rather than doing the hard work of dealing with my own emotions and circumstances, I may identify as broken. I know this.
Imagine my surprise when I recently started to entertain the idea that I'm a victim in some areas of my relationships. A blog about being a victim to my own insecurity. https://savethis.space/2019/victim
I really need to get back on track switching to #Hugo. Part of the issue is converting my old posts to Hugo. That's the last thing I was working on and got discouraged.
Here are the full details on our open developer position:
We're looking for #Go developers, but welcome anyone with similar web development skills to apply! There's plenty to be done around #WriteFreely, and lots of opportunity to learn Go, if you're interested.
@jeena We all good for this Friday at 18:00 UTC?
Sunday, my father-in-law asked me about hashtags. He didn't understand that instaSpam was generating a page for each unique hashtag. He wondered if he could just go to any search engine and see the results...
Imagine if the centralized, corporate web didn't start locking down their creations to force people to go there for the precious ad dollars. There could have been a hashtag search engine that would have tabs for the various services to see the results.
Talking about #addiction is hard because it feeds that shame demon riding my back. The shame can sometimes led back to addiction. As a society we don't particularly like talking about addiction. We rush people away to treatment facilities, like we push the elderly to homes. That's mainly chemical addicted folks. There's a tremendous stigma around behavior addiction. Those of us with that problem are merely weak.
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
