✨ HOW TO HAVE A NICE TIME ON THE FEDIVERSE ✨
1. Don't be a downer in replies for no good reason.
2. No unsolicited advice.
3. If someone says something nice to you, boost a post of theirs that you like.
4. If someone is rude/unhelpful/a downer in your replies, block-unblock them to get them off your follower list (or just block them if they don't follow you).
5. Use hashtags sometimes, and when you do, click on them and boost the good stuff to federate it about.
@benwerd and why i spend so little time here. I've been saying this for years, but only moving my solution forward slowly and incrementally.
“Decentralized Twitter” is not a real solution to a hard human problem: https://werd.io/2022/mastodon-and-the-future-of-twitter
@b *slaps roof* this bad boy can fit so much graft in it
but legit that would be interesting to figure out. Who were the people involved in the creation of the boat? How many different companies? How many errors happened in the process? What is a comparably priced structure, a public school? What is a comparably complex structure, an apartment building? Where were "luxury" components chosen, and what is the markup? What is the special handling required per item?
@phildini i feel this way, but never reconnected again. I just halfway float in and out. Seems ok. Extremely Online Individuals still seem to tolerate me
using a modern computer on the internet is like you've got this amazing studio workshop library full of tools and stuff, workbench space all over the place, and you're gonna put it all to use any minute now - except you just can't stop staring out out one dingy window at these people screaming at each other in the street
I was becoming more and more convinced we need to start over with computing.
Now becoming more convinced we'll make the same mistakes.
Building my own indie ecosystem might not meet my needs any further, and now I'm also exhausted.
(Building a kid a Linux setup on RaspberryPi, pondering if I'm just poisoning the community and world further. Considering, connecting, pushing on...)
I feel surprise there's not much #nonviolentcommunication #nvc talk on masto. I find it is very useful for life in general, but relevant for considering what need I'm trying to meet when engaging with social media. https://www.cnvc.org/ has a lot of resources. Meetups and workshops have been useful for me, even over video calls. There's also a podcast of talks the founder gave https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nonviolent-communication-marshall-rosenbergs-nvc-training/id1497893802
