Hello internet friends!
By now we know it’s some sort of new social network (getting excited about those seems to be so 2004) with some issues.
What do we want?
We want a free, ad-free, un-tracked, archived social network with privacy controls, outside of the sphere of influence of governments (except when that leads to behaviour we don’t condone. Can’t they do something about that?) and corporations. We want our own blog, de-centralized but simple.
And surely not self-hosted, ugh.
(And who are “we”?)
Empty cities are inherently creepy. At least this one has self-driving people-pods in them.
If you have 56 minutes, you can spend them in worse ways than listening to/watching this talk by Merlin Mann about Advanced Tricycling. (You know it’s a metaphor. It is really about how we learn stuff and how to know what we need to learn.)
Oh well. At least this might be useful.
