Looking forward to the day when I can post all the shit I post to Twitter only to Galley, @jny
Right, I’ll tell you what we’re going to do. We’re going to organise a conference in Europe for people working on ethical alternatives to surveillance capitalism that isn’t sponsored by surveillance capitalism. For people who aren’t afraid to pick a side.
Because I’ve had it with this bullshit and we need non-bullshit alternatives.
Watch this space.
well, @jny, I took the plunge: https://galley.cjr.org/public/conversations/-LXLajqoXhQjUHg5EbAe/

nice journalism you had here. shame if something happened to it.
@jny Ooooo! I'll read it (though 15k words, means it'll take me a bit...)
@jny also! I recognize me in there, and I’m v/flattered.
@jny 🔥🔥🔥 I mean, *I* wouldn’t be quite so harsh. But you’re not wrong!
I guess the tone down I would make is the aside abt the FB funding? But again, you’re not wrong
@jny It's baffling to me that you can think that "there are good people on Twitter" is a rejoinder to the claim the "Twitter incentivizes bad behavior!"
@jny Ooo nice. lmk when you have a link up, I've got ~feelings~.
@jny: I see you read Jarvis's piece, too! It drives me up a wall that you get called a panicky determinist whenever you point out that tech influences behavior—as though there weren't a more nuanced philosophical stance!
Well Jarvis is at it again: https://medium.com/whither-news/journalism-is-the-conversation-the-conversation-is-journalism-22a8c631e952.
It’s incredibly frustrating to have such shitty social networks—mostly because defenses of them end up so utterly annoying, straw man-ish, and moralizing.
@jny Linode. Apparently AWS can get expensive, though I’m using S3 for image storage.
@jny about 3 hours to get the rudimentary shit done. Then 4 hours of debugging. Also, $5/month and a fun domain name! All in all not bad. I’m also no devops wizard.
@jny Behind all gallows humor is a gallows, I’ve heard.
Also, lol yes.
I make stuff with code, prose, and music.
