I feel somehow like Lindisfarne, Infocom, Whole Earth, Internet Archive, Xanadu, early Creative Computing... Mastodon... all have the same soul. Something wide eyed and starry, techno-mystical. William Irwin Thompson was ex-MIT so maybe the Infocom part is not as much of a stretch as it seems.

Actually planning to (at least try and) make this program. Don't get your hopes up just yet!
Time for #midweekScreenshot
It continues: "One reason DRM persists is that it remains relatively hidden from the consumer. Amazon and other ebook stores do offer some non-DRM titles but don’t make the distinctions clear.

To make it easier for people that know me IRL to find me, I'm actually going to use my IRL name + profile picture on Mastodon now.
Another thing I miss about Facebook was that most people I know IRL are on there as well. It was really easy to get in contact with someone I just met, just look him/her up and you've got a chat mate. Now I just have to chat with strangers or people I've met earlier online. Not that it is a bad thing, but just different. Still need to get used to it.
