“free speech” is not a dogwhistle.

"When I went to school, it was right after the Sixties and before this general wave of practical purposefulness had set in. Now students aren’t even thinking in idealistic terms, or at least nowhere near as much. They certainly are not letting any of the philosophical issues of the day take up too much of their time as they study their business majors. The idealistic wind of the Sixties was still at our backs, though, and most of the people I know who are my age have that engrained in them forever." —Steve Jobs
dear #lazyweb: I need an extremely comfy chair for reading for long periods. Ideally it has a circular metal base and rotates freely around the center of that. Ideally low ability to absorb/retain airborne allergens. Please advise.

It's weird that all the pgp keyservers seem to be malfunctioning in the last year or so... :(
i think the problem that i have with the AGPL which I could never truly articulate is that it's not *free software* in the sense that it's designed to protect your freedoms. it's anti-profit-ware. the AGPL *takes away* your freedom to start an application service provider—every other free software license *preserves* your rights. the AGPL *restricts* them. there's nothing wrong with the "ASP loophole", it's not a bug, and doesn't need to be fixed. let people profit from their private modifications.
A problem with mastodon is it's hard to find interesting people to follow.
https://bridge.joinmastodon.org/ times out.
Looking at random hashtags fails also. So it fails in the network kickstarting effect.
The firehose is too random.
There is no popular toots list.
I don't know of any crossposting apps to help kickstart stuff?
