Pick 2-3 small tasks and get them done so that you feel a sense of accomplishment.

In retrospect, I should've just looked for a podcast player separate from my music player, but I didn't want to install more programs than necessary.

Twitter wants to decentralize because they see how fast Mastodon and other decentralized networks are growing and Jack wants to monetize that.

He doesn't care about a freer, more open internet, he cares about watching Mastodon grow and that he's not making money off it.

Jack Dorsey followed Mastodon on Twitter a month ago so it's not like he doesn't know Mastodon exists, take from that what you will

Working theory: Twitter wants to develop their own protocol so that they have control over it, and in turn we'll see federated walled gardens form between corporate social networks.

twitter will embrace decentralization just like they did with 3rd party developers.

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It doesn't make you more worthy, it just means you're tired.

Take a moment to consider the profound impact each of us has in the fediverse.

The fact we can communicate across the world using open source technology is pretty amazing.

We also have a responsibility, as developers, to ensure platform privacy and safety are legitimate priorities and not just buzzwords used in marketing.

We can do it better than Silicon Valley if we step outside our bubbles and listen to the people. The fediverse depends on it!
