I've created an MSP Social calendar with events that might be of interest to many of us.

Right now @t54r4n1 and I can edit the calendar, so if there's something you think should be added, let one of us know. Without your input I might not have a lot to add to it, so your help will be appreciated!

Thanks.

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:

Idk I think if you have a bad actor for an admin you should feel some pressure to changes instances, not be made to feel comfortable to stick around. It just gives the bad-actor admin power/leverage in the network that they can use to perpetuate their behavior.

Here's the latest on inclusionary zoning/affordability requirements. After years of talk, the policy being considered now is very close to what the City Council will likely approve and make effective Jan 1 2020.

The FidoNet chapter from BBS: The Documentary (2004) is I think required viewing for fediverse admins.

Bulletin board services (BBSes) were pre-web online communities with forums, mail, games, etc. FidoNet was/is basically a volunteer-run federation layer that let BBSes communicate with each other.

The video talks about FidoNet's growing pains, especially around governance & a mismatch between what users wanted and what the sysops felt was required to maintain the net.

"A lot of times you don't get the praise until you leave. And when you throw up your hands and say 'Oh man I quit, I'm so tired of this' -- 'well you can't leave, you're the greatest we've ever had!". Really? Well why didn't you tell me that back then? Why do you wait until now?"

tbh this is one reason I would never run an open reg fediverse instance. Friend Camp users are great at letting me know they appreciate my work... because we're friends!

imagine if instead of designing and maintaining counterfeit-proof tickets, payment machines, card scanners, and police... they just let people ride the bus for free. imagine!!

It’s a slow night at work so I am thinking a lot tonight about how trans women are divided along multiple axis and then we inflict trauma against those on the other side of the divide.

I can think of multiple instances of this that I have seen and it is truly shitty
