well, finally went and made a second mastodon account. previously blogging from @juliebean about whatever. i'd been debating over where to create a second account (eggs and baskets after all) for a week or so, but @cocoron 's talk about making this place into a co-op is what really tipped the scale for me. more proper reintroductions post forthcoming.

i really hope i didn't completely fuck over my hopes of attending school this semester by saying i'm going to eventually submit my 2016 tax form.

If you are an organizer, let me give one piece of advice:

Do not take a disagreement as a demonstration of a split.

Take every disagreement as an opportunity to form a new consensus.

And if that is not possible, see it as an opportunity to define the affinity of both groups involved.

Aspire to find a cooperative ethos where both parties' boundaries are respected and their strengths properly utilized.

Q: How do I explain Bitcoin to my grandfather?
A: imagine if keeping your car idling 24/7 produced solved Sudokus you could trade for heroin

i like school for like, learning things and doing things, but navigating the monetary and beaurocratic bullshit makes me feel just the worst.

@puffinux
Yeah. I was, and while no one or almost no one made the politics explicit at the time, it was pretty much always a split between leftists (exemplified by RMS) and right-libertarians (exemplified by ESR).

There's no ethical consumption under capitalism but it literally takes 5 minutes to find the same Amazon stuff on other smaller websites for almost the same price

the worst aspect, is that people will screenshot things to post on other sites, thus completely divorcing the content from its timeframe. absolute timestamps do not have this issue.

i absolutely hate relative timestamps on posts. i mean, it's better than no timestamps, but still.

anyways, i really hope i hear back about that job. it's a "fair trade handicrafts" gift shop and it seems like a chill enough place to work, plus it might serve as a place to ply my own handicrafts down the road. they had already filled the position, but i gave my resume anyways and think i made a good impression.

I know why they need JavaScript: Ads and Analytics. But Iโ€™m on mobile and my browsing experience has improved 10 fold since turning JS off. And Iโ€™ve doubled my battery life

Also, I have no idea how ethical their collection practices are in the first place
