Letter Writing and Politics
05 January 2023
One of the most important things you as a civically engaged person can do is
write your local politicians at all levels of government a letter about the
things that annoy and upset you. If you come with solutions, and rational
arguments you will get results by showing that these matter enough for you to
take time out of your day to condense your thoughts into a well defined format.
Mastodon and the Fediverse
22 December 2022
I’ve recently got fed up with the standard centralized social media, so I
joined Mastodon. Everything was feeling incredibly fake as of late.
It’s hard to build real connection on the large sites. This is my experience
joining the fediverse and tildeverse. I’ve always been interested in old
school social networks like BBS, and the whole lore that surrounds them, so I
decided to get more involved with Mastodon as hosted by SDF. I’ve had
a shell account with them since 2016 and I’m sustaining member too. It’s nice
to try out their other hosted applications.
