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.
@Rheall Hey. Hi. Just checking in. How are you? What have you been up to? How is things?
Would like to either recommend a good, unobtrusive alternative to #google here, or able to state with confidence that no captcha is needed (the website just registers the email adress with a form post).
What are your recommendations?
I will add in a poll for good measure..
🔑 How do you protect your mailing list..
I was looking at using Shopify for original artwork with the idea of being able to upgrade to get a credit card acceptor-type-thing that I could take to local markets. Then the pandemic happened.
So, I have been sitting on unsold #art and not doing any markets. Now I see Ko-Fi has a shop. What's interesting about that is the idea of people being able to purchase or donate in one location.

@jeena You still using mpd as your music streaming/music server solution?
Hey #musicproduction people. How long does it take for you to finish the track?
MH [~] EMDR
My first real session is today. I cannot shake the idea that it won't help and that I'll be wasting the time of the doctor. I will participate wrong and fail. This is the narrative I play in my head.
Before I was excited for the opportunity to try EMDR, but the idea of attacking my self-critical voice and core belief that I am a failure has me terrified.
Does #copyright need to be changed? It's being changed regardless of the law, thanks to the web. Many people raised with the web think nothing of using an image they found online. Creators of #FOSS goodies recognize the work put into things and respect copyright, and corporations force creators into bad contracts and exploit copyright for their own benefit.
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
