"Commander Vimes didn't like the phrase 'The innocent have nothing to fear', believing the innocent had everything to fear, mostly from the guilty but in the longer term even more from those who say things like 'The innocent have nothing to fear'.

Earlier today my daughter was singing about "Minnesotan Ninja Turtles" and I regret having corrected her

Things my daughter shouted while running through the room :

"I'm looking for prey!"

Either we've done something right here or very wrong.

RT @JoyceWhiteVance
Iranian authorities now concede that months of poison attacks on hundreds of schoolgirls are linked to efforts to prevent girls from getting an education. Until now, they've been downplaying the attacks, which are still characterized as minor.

Good riddance, don't let the doorknob hit you on the way out, etc.

SpainCo is back online. Not dead, just wasn't federated for a while because of an expired cert.

I'd thought the world felt a little too quiet there for a while - turns out it was just my own fault.

First 4-5 things I get recommended, I'll buy and read, no questions asked (If don't have them already.)

Alright, need help. Putting a request out for book recommendations from people, as my strategic book reserves are running low. Fiction please, or are the usuals, but I'm an open minded fellow.

This is not a chart depicting Moore’s Law.

This chart is the CRAYOLA COROLLARY showing that the number of Crayola crayon colors doubles approximately every 18 years.

My thoughts go out to the IT/security teams at The Guardian and Okta, and anyone else who was hoping to have a quiet holiday break....

THIS IS A BABY EEL. Many eels live in the open ocean when young & are barely recognizable (this may be a conger eel). They're at the mercy of the currents, never sure what will happen. Their lives are mysterious, perilous, & beautiful.

Are you sitting down? Here goes!

44% of all websites that exist right now run on WordPress.

Right now, connecting a WordPress site to the Fediverse is just a matter of installing this plug-in.

If just a fraction of WordPress sites connect to ActivityPub, then the network effect of the Fediverse will eclipse Big Social.

Had a serious conversation today in which buying 40,000 iPads was proposed as a cost saving measure.

And, while that may seem implausible, the math checked out.

@rysiek @axbom This is super exciting! I see I can start a blog with WriteFreely and have it naturally interact with Mastodon, through this fediverse system.

I've been waiting for this kind of thing since forever! We have been stuck with corporate bubbles for so long. And now finally.. what a time to be alive :)

This is a private Mastodon instance thrown together for myself and a few friends. SpainCo is not a real company - or rather, it's several, but none of them have anything to do with this site or the domain.
