There is a genuine belief from people in 2018 that pre-2008 internet was much better. It’s the midlife crisis for the social web early adopter generation.

I still can’t read twitter threads. (no that website doesn’t help)

It’s Micro Monday time and it’s gotta be @vishae, whose feed makes me feel a whole lot better about the random assortment of interests that I hold. Truly a person who enjoys the variety of life with both great care and genuine enthusiasm.

… Israel has now killed more than 90 Palestinians in the past six weeks for approaching the fence it placed around Gaza, surpassing the total number of East Germans shot and killed for trying to scale the Berlin Wall from 1961 to 1989

Micro.blog inspires blog posts, whilst social media encourages spam posts.

I still can’t vouch for omnibear as much as I would like. Anything but a basic note post does not work from Chrome with a Micro.blog hosted site. And as with too much of the IndieWeb, the opportunity to get help is not as obvious as it ought to be.

I’ve noticed a pattern with regard to British comedians:

The moment they have “made it” in the US is a sign they’ve used up what talent they had and are now desparate more than anything. Example: Ricky Gervais

I wonder if we could have some official requests/suggestions channels for Micro.blog. I enjoy reading Manton’s blog and talking to him as a Micro.blog user but the constant interceding by people asking for something doesn’t make for a nice experience at all.

I don’t think writing about tech is the thing for me, at least not in the midst of the popular discourse. The volume of Expert Opinionating contains toxicity of a kind that I can’t tolerate, from so many people as well. Meh.

Day One are currently having problems with their sync. They’re working on it and providing as many answers as possible, along with people working whilst sick and through family vacation time. What do they get on Twitter? Hostility from “experts”.
