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 🎉 🎉 🎉

@unklebonehead You only need one account on any one of those to interact with all the others. It's similar to how if you have an @gmail.com email address you can email to people who have @yahoo.com and @hotmail.com email addresses. Just one account is enough to interact with all of the fediverse

Totally hyped to have found great Korean food in the twin cities. Both Sole Cafe and Kbop are A+

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*

@liaizon this is one of my biggest barriers too! Especially word & line selection behavior. I tried changing the key combos in Linux once but since they're inconsistent between apps I kind of just made a mess of things. Now I just stick to the defaults but muscle memory is strong...

Well we had one afk and another with a 1300 ping so obviously we lost but these are the zilean bombs dreams are made of...

@aardrian I'm weird, I actually like open plan offices, and the ambient buzz of activity helps me get into a deep work zone, though I know many of my colleagues don't agree with good reason.

Also, this app and others like it are great, and a really positive step forward towards normalizing things which will make the transition to remote work & remote presence a smooth one! Things like this make me optimistic, though I know there's a long way to go before they're practical day-to-day :)
