I am visiting Split, Hrvatska [Croatia] next week. What should I do? 🇭🇷

I question if we should allow space tourism at all at this point in history.

At a minimum we should demand that the CO2e emissions are captured before each trip.

Those companies should be net zero and not by planting trees, by direct air capture using technology.

There are stars exploding and there’s nothing you can do.

I can never remember if surname is my first or last name.

Flying back to Stockhome after 3 wonderful weeks in Texas. A vaccination, a family reunion, daily Wave Runner rides on the lake, a road trip, an unexpected SF guest, and so many new memories. My heart is full.

@ajz That is the best reason to not do it so far. I would create a separate user account exclusively for this purpose.

If my primary use case for sending email from my website is a contact form that just emails me, is there a good reason to not simply use my email provider’s SMTP instead of SendGrid?

Something I noticed with my 6 niblings this weekend: literally every toy can/will be weaponized.

I witnessed magic spells, cops & robbers, space wars, shark attacks.

Why is this? Do kids feel so powerless that they must find some way to exert control, even if imaginary?

The planet is on fucking fire and people are still eating meat daily and having more than 2 biological children like it’s no big deal.

@okpierre I really only know of Mastodon and Pixelfed. Are there others that got any notable traction?

@mpanhans @okpierre I would love to see the fediverse adopt the proposed W3 standard Web Monetization.

Associate a payment pointer with each post. Fediverse clients select the payment pointer of the most focused on post to get paid for the time it is in focus or use the iframe method for multiple concurrent payments.

Seems like a good candidate for a grant from grantfortheweb.org/

@okpierre I know some won't agree, but I think the Fedi needs more monetization. I'm not talking VC funding or anything, but just creative ways for projects to monetize so that they can be sustained. So that developers and maintainers can develop expertise in the technology, and do this as more than a hobby. I mean nothing wrong with people contributing as a hobby. But being able to dedicate more time would allow more great things to be created in the Fediverse.

What is the best Flash-like authoring app for making (I assume) SVG or HTML canvas animations these days?

@okpierre I cannot even get most people I know who care about decentralized tech to care about the fediverse. Not sure it was ever alive.

Help us ban federal use of invasive and harmful face surveillance. Tell your members of congress to co-sponsor the Facial Recognition and Biometric Technology Moratorium Act. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/06/now-

I can’t help but feel Visa acquiring Tink is Visa neutralizing/extinguishing the strongest threat to its business in Europe.

PSD2 enabled bank-to-bank payments to be as easy as credit cards for consumers.
