Quidditch in 2009 was this ridiculous sport that "real athletes" didn't take seriously and it was fun and silly and weird
By ~ 2014 it was overrun by dudebros who had made "turning quidditch into a legit sport" one of the official goals of the quidditch association
I kind of want to do this to a legit sport, but in reverse
Get a bunch of non-athletes, nerds, queer people, weirdos, whoever, invade that sport, take it over and start slowly changing rules so that it eventually becomes Calvinball

FLOSS's future, if it has one, is as an implementation of socialist ideology. It can help us imagine and actualize a future in which humanity survives capitalism in its current form. FLOSS belongs to the world. It belongs to women, to queer people, to the poor. We must hand it to them over the objections of the spoiled, blinkered manchildren of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s.
Freedom alone was never enough. For freedom to be worth anything you have to care about people, understand their experiences, know the limits of your own perspective. You have to understand the ways in which people are vulnerable where you are not.
Freedom that doesn't care about other people is simply Ego.

Project Jortage (attn: instance admins)
last week I started Project Jortage, a collaboratively paid for S3-compatible media storage solution for fediverse instances
instances can join the pool for free, optionally donating to our OpenCollective. Jortage primarily offers cross-instance media deduplication which is a huge gain for Mastodon instances that indiscriminately copy all media
current members include sleeping.town, glaceon.social, toot.cat, donphan.social, cryptid.industries, and a smattering of personal instances
learn more: https://jortage.com
join by emailing email@example.com or DMing me; I'll walk you through migrating from your current media storage

Playing a dungeon game where a neural net is DMing has a lot in common with lucid dreaming.
