The Royal wedding, supported by this nation’s police thugs. Shameful.

Kudos to @gruber for his latest posts re: the general situation in the US. Too many prominent tech voices seem keen to live in denial of the lives ruined by the President and the vile people who support him but not John Gruber, he’s putting it right there into his megaphone.

Full disclosure: you shouldn’t follow this blog or me on Micro.blog if you are “trying to get away from the news” or whatever. I am not here to pretend that ignoring the world means you are making things better; the news is not what made established social media bad.

Can’t wait for the fix that applies to conversations with people who have underscores in their usernames. Randomly mentioning the wrong person is a terrible experience.

I’ll be going through my RSS feeds soon and one rule I am definitely going to apply is this:

  • If you don’t allow your full posts to display then I will no longer subscribe to your writing.

This is the kind of nonsense that does not help feed-based publishing at all.

Dialog early impressions:

  • Dark theme is awesome.
  • Scrolling is very good.
  • Navigation is intuitive and nicely contains the depth of Micro.blog.

It just feels… so good.

Hm, regret posting that home screen now. Going to switch Talon for Messages.
