I'm going to try to post :blobpeektrans: stuff at @squiggy , and it will be mostly friends-only.

If you want to read about my inner turmoil, and we're mutuals, good chance I'll approve a follow request. Just want to talk about that stuff in a smaller sandbox.

I thought you might like to know that, according to the extremely unscientific methodologies I have at my disposal, MSP Social is really :gay:

@lawremipsum Can you explain why every time on MSP Social, I receive transmissions from Jupiter's red spot?

I wish I had an excuse for any weirdness MSP Social users experience, but I do not.

There is no excuse, just weirdness.

A surprisingly big part of my job is explaining to Big Ideas™ people that things are actually just fine the way they are because there are other smart people who've already thought about it so please go stir someone else's pot.

Serious recommendation: if you like solarpunk, look into AfroFuturism. It's been around -way- longer, and tbh, solarpunk was probably inspired by it. The aesthetics and ideals often overlap, and there's way more lore and fiction to read! Also, you'll be giving a platform to people that have great ideas and need the attention.

Yeargh I wanna play volleyball but I have a CLE! Fuck! Why are these things always on volleyball days??

Today's complaint about a "free" corporate cloud silo: Google Play Music is hostile to all attempts to play music you own.

Going to the site takes you to the store, not the music you already own. Need at least two more clicks to open your own music library. Search for music you already own and music you don't own is at the top of the results list—even if you own an exact match for your search.

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 and Neighbors for More Neighbors. 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.
