When I first started my journey into decentralization and federation in 2012 there was a lot of talk about protocols. As I learned more about the subject and tried to convert friends, I often used email as a protocol example to explain

Today I was thinking about how the email protocol is abused. Any research into hosting your own email will send you into many conversations about blacklists and ip subnets. Gmail owns email like Disney owns all of media, despite the open protocol.

Did you know that @janellecshane trained a neural network to recognize and ignore advertising. Eventually the neural net got so good that it taught itself to build a rocket and is currently trying to escape our galaxy.

So have advertisers and marketing people figured out how to get ads in our dreams yet?

The last quiet space we have left as humans.

I have been avoiding meditation for awhile. I think my mindfulness practice has continued subconsciously, but I miss the clarity and peace of meditation.

I think not practicing is a form of punishment. I do not deserve to take the time because there is "too much to do."

Before the week is over, I will try to do at least one guided meditation.

You are not a bad person for not being the person other people want you to be.

I know at one time Google was a large contributor to Mozilla. So I assume that is why there is a Facebook Firefox container tab, but not a Google one?

Before I knew the context of the Will Smith punch, I was sure Chris Rock asked him where David Miscavige's wife was.

Once I started painting I really had little interest in desktop publishing, design, etc. A couple of volunteer gigs had me designing some packages, but otherwise I preferred to work with my hands.

Then, the evil entered my life. I have been cranky ever since January. The thing is infuriating. I just want my paints and paintbrush back.

What has @kai done to me?

I solved Semantle #54 in 47 guesses. My first guess had a similarity of 6.75. My first word in the top 1000 was at guess #3. My penultimate guess had a similarity of 28.94 (710/1000). semantle.novalis.org/

Whoa.

Boom goes the dynamite!

We need to know which platform to prioritize for the upcoming beta release.

Should we release on Android or iOS first?

Boosts appreciated! #pixelfed #mobileApp #android #ios #fediverse

Where do I belong?
I try to pursue my art, but I have never believed in myself. Thus, I enjoy the healing aspect of creating my art, but I cannot seem to promote myself or attempt to sell the work.
Looking for day jobs, or even things in my previous career absolutely destroys me. The self-loathing and fear are part of that, but so are the options out there. The priorities of these companies just make me sick to my stomach. Even my death would be a burden considering the costs of funerals.
