This write-up of FOIA The Dead in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is totally great. I love that they have a transparency columnist!

"For the past 16 months, when a notable person dies, Parker Higgins sends a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Each letter is the same, except for the name, and makes the same request: Hand over the FBI file for the deceased."

Hope this paints the scene of where I live.

On my way to see my SO, there was a donkey in the road. Got SO to look up non-emergency number so I could report it. Got redirected to 911 anyway. That was a first.

mom: hey son I joined this new Mastodon thing
me: oh shit mom, I coulda helped you find a server, which one did you choose?
mom: well I liked the privacy policy on satanic.bikerladi.es but then communist.blaze.party had the shortest ping latency so

Explain why or why you would not run a Mastodon node on a host located in the 🇺🇸

"Really? These people aren't homeless?"
"They're waiting in line for Saturday Night Live"
"You're sure they're not homeless people camping here?"
"It's the SNL line"
"They're here all night?"
"A lot of them are here for days"
"To watch a TV show?"
"To watch a TV show."

Somebody once told me 

the world is gonna roll me
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead

Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb

So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the back streets?
You'll never know if you don't go
You'll never ...

Seriously, watching ansible playbooks attempt to deploy is just as bad as watching compiles try to compile.

cybre ≠ cyber

cybre describes an optimism, a hope for the possibility of technology rather than a fear of its oppression
cybre represents the reality of what is now possible, in addition to the mythology of what was thought possible
cybre belongs to the indomitable individuals and indefatigable communities who have carved out a home in an invisible layer above reality

also cybre was available as a domain name

Given that mastodon nodes *aren't* usually run by a corp with a lot of money, are they more susceptible to shake down by large entities (e.g. the US government) than Twitter?
