@Chelseaknits thank you we're gonna just go out tonight with the kids anyway

@lawremipsum we had just 30 minutes prior walked right past it with our kids coming back from icy cup

Our power is out while they're working on stuff over there. I'm not gonna be able to get out for hotdish.

Hey so that house that exploded in St Paul this afternoon is like right near ours, our back door neighbor got hit with something and like we felt the explosion.

The next time you see an old white guy complain about a social program, think about how quickly half a billion dollars was raised for something a handful of people will benefit from.

The Notre Dame restoration effort having reached 500 million in funds while historically Black churches in L.A. burned down by white supremacists is struggling to break a single million is the perfect commentary on equality and basic decency and respect.

#Florence, with the revelation of my medical condition, I'm wondering if there's an extra person who'd like to help us continue moving forward.

Working close with me, right now helping to get my thoughts out of me.
And helping people work together and communicate. Find consensus, hearing members, and fitting their feedback in with our goals.

Thanks for marking all the cases that should be looked at ASAP, police

@lawremipsum @britvulcan @stelepami it's weird right? I feel like there's Something Here though that could make sense but i just dunno about Huge Corporate Version?

@britvulcan @stelepami yes they're up to something weird trying to make this the Next Big Profit Center and i honestly feel like open source local small scale designs would stand a better chance at scaling.

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
