Got over 30 email addresses. Feels like a big success to me. Was amazing that of the people that stopped to talk about it, about 80% of them gave me their email for an invite. People are really really receptive to alternatives.

Having a great time out at open streets Minneapolis talking to people about tinyfed.com and the fediverse. People are friendly and receptive. Almost 20 email signups already!

Working on some scuffed signage for open streets Minneapolis tomorrow 🎉 🎉 🎉

My favorite mastodon client on all platforms is the progressive web app, for legitimate UX reasons. This is remarkable, and signals to me that we're at an inflection point. Developers, unbridled by the limitations of building for platforms they can't control, are pushing PWAs to new levels of being the sensible/obvious go-to choice

I've fully gotten over the shame/stigma of being *that one person in the cafe who puts their laptop on a kickstand* because my neck really just can't take hunching over the screen these days. I wish it didn't draw attention but seriously it just feels a million times better

Setting up a new primary phone for the first time in a few years and it's basically the dark pattern olympics.

Anybody else wish the scrollable area on the mastodon single column view was the whole page instead of just the feed itself?

Minneapolis has made such impressive progressive strides (esp with increasing housing supply), but the car culture here still feels like an intractable problem. My positions on everything related have gotten more extreme in the less than 1yr I’ve been back. Critically, I can’t picture eliminating my car from my own life here without adding an unbelievable amount of inconvenience, so I can’t picture removing myself as part of the problem. Tough to see a path forward, but we need one *fast*

Twitter is down, but that doesn't stop the toots

T-minus 2-3 yrs before microsoft drops something like google's stadia but for software dev. I hope y'all like walled gardens because we're all going to be writing software in one soon. Dev communities are smiling with each shovel full of dirt we dig for them of their moat

The efficiency gains this will bring to dev teams will be astronomical, but it will come with a cost of the most powerful creators/makers on earth building within a ecosystem they can't control or feasibly fully leave

youtu.be/qQWAicHiVhk Madeon going in some new directions - I dig it. Really bold solo at the end there

The serious hitomi chorus is f'ing genius. The sequence at the end, FM7 - Em7 - Dm7 - CM7 - Bm7 - C#m7 - CM7 ..... nobody else does the C#m7 there and that just kicks it into the stratosphere. Plus the layered and panned vocals and huge harmonies. It's just too good.
