Does anyone here speak toki pona? Kind of want to learn it

I’m the type of writer who spends an hour researching the rarity of various minerals on Earth, choosing a few to make relatively more or less common on my fictional world to give it a base of realism with some clearly-not-Earth variety, get ten tabs deep and wind up looking at the effect of radiation on silicon dioxide degradation in nature, and then I don’t end up actually writing anything

It’s pawpaw season!! If you’re in the eastern US, go shake a tree!

I think the activity on Fedi is just too low. I post the same thing on here and on Twitter sometimes, just to see, and the other one often gets a lot more engagement (as expected). I like the structure here way more, the longer post length, etc. but social media is meant to be social and I think the small userbase is a massive weakness. People want engagement, if you just want to blog into the void forever there are a myriad of other options for that. How do we get more people on the Fediverse?

Writers and creatives, give me your best ‘types of medieval polities’ (ie. kingdom, suzerainty, most serene republic), I’m brainstorming! 🧠✍️

Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to humans who achieved so much with it.

This made the gods extremely angry because they were in the middle of trying to rent fire to humans with restrictive DRM.

Reading and learning about FEJUVE, a decentralized network of neighborhood councils in El Alto, Bolivia, and its pivotal role in reversing gas and oil privatization in the country, reversing water privatization, getting Morales elected, boosting unions, public housing, etc (SO MUCH MORE) - really incredible stuff.

I am selling these stickers on my Ko-Fi shop. Proceeds go toward buying ham radio license exam study materials for local people.

No international shipping right now. I just have to buy international stamps. No big deal.

if adidas corporate disappeared tomorrow, no one would notice or care because everyone actually making the shit could continue on just as they did the day before. knockoff adidas from the same factory is just adidas without the license to brand them

Does anyone else have trouble uploading photos on Masto? Photos are hit or miss on the desktop site, and the mobile app absolutely does not like photos. I can’t upload a screenshot of the mobile app breaking my photos because the uploader is broken 😣

Statement on “Join The Fedi” jointhefedi.com is a website owned by known “gender critical” activist Alex Gleason. The domain name and SEO is clearly designed to appeal to individuals curious about the fediverse, and potentially take traffic from joinmastodon.org. Unfortunately, Gleason does not have the best intentions when it comes to helping the fediverse grow. Gleason formerly contributed to other fediverse projects, before being removed from doing so due both his behavior and poor code quality. This is a problematic individual, recommending problematic services.

Join The Fedi has an explicitly right-wing agenda and seems to only promote instances which either a) run the “Soapbox” front-end software created by Gleason himself or b) advertise themselves as “free speech” instances. As of right now, the site actively recommends the following instances:

poa.st (blocked by Howlr for harassment)
Spinster.xyz (blocked by Howlr for transphobia)
Shitposter.club (blocked by Howlr for harassment)
Gleasonator.com (blocked by Howlr for transphobia)
Freespeechextremist.com (blocked by Howlr for hate speech)

In other words, Gleason is using the site to promote his own agenda rather than simply gain more users into the fediverse. This is not a site that should be recommended to new users. I would recommend using https://joinfediverse.wiki/ instead!

Thank you!

Anyone have thoughts on the writings of Kevin Carson, or the C4SS?
