Basically my reaction to "I'm gonna migrate from birdsite to GNU Social/Mastodon" has been to use neither, hahaha.

If you live in Chattanooga, you should go to tonight's hack night. I'm not going to be there, but you could go: reddit.com/r/Chattanooga/comme

I made a Sally Jessy Raphael joke and no one in the room understood the reference and I felt old.

Spent some time getting together another test apk so I can get some folks to test a login fix tomorrow. I did tests on emulators for Android ≤4.4 and a bunch of instances don't work in the browser. So even though I worked to get my requests in-app to succeed. It redirects to browser to log in and gives a "secure connection failed". Real frustrating.

My friend @ryanmaynard put together the current state of the art using Keybase to verify your GNU Social/Mastodon identity. Actually pretty much any identity, probably: ryanmaynard.co/mastodon-keybas

Thinking about cultural assumptions in starship architecture.

Would a generation ship designed by Muslims have designated prayer rooms with gyroscopic floors that orient themselves toward Earth?

I imagine Hindu or Shinto starship designers would include niches for shrines right from the start.

A Chinese long-voyage ship could re-institute the lunar calendar since there's no sun to deal with any more.

Has anyone advice on increasing the ideological and walk-of-life diversity of my home TL while avoiding folks who try to shut down open debate? It's easy enough to find such people in my own affinity groups, but often the folks most visible to those unlike them are the ranty, un-empathitic ones least likely to engage constructively.

Note: I care about diversity of thinking, not appearance/demographics.
