I want something built in to Masto that doesn't *delete* my posts exactly, but sort of makes them only findable by me, unless someone has the direct link or something
Like, I don't want links to old stuff that I've posted or sent to others to be broken
I want to be able to stroll down memory lane if I so choose
But I want to be able to change a setting on my account in Masto so that scrolling back on my profile or access through the API only returns x days of my old posts
The whole public existence = consent is a failing argument for predators. In the tech arena there’s this convenience based idea that online life is optional. You don’t want to be archived/traced/tracked/harassed then log off, delete ur acct, etc. Well surprise! It’s not 1998 anymore and our daily systemic and societal navigation is welded with and many times dependent on access to an online profile. Grow up.
This is a perfectly healthy statistic for a #ereader. right? right?
(New kindloe software update shows this, I have read more than 0 books on this kindle. 😉 (the ratio is still.... um.... OK?))
There's lots of discussion software out there. I wonder has anyone made one that can operate as a mailing list too? Where there's an email interface? (as well as a standard web/ActivityPub interface?)
I think that's the only way to move some #FLOSS communities off mailing lists, you'd have to ensure fans of mailing lists can still participate...
*But* the same people often use & promote #Twitter. Isn't there much much more horrible abuse on Twitter? Is that a contraditiction? Is there something that makes twitter less exclusionary for marginalized people?
When I look for travel tips for LGBTQIA+ travelers, the only info I get is: here's all the clubs that gay men like.
No, that's not what I want! I want to know what cafes queer women hang at, what spa would be trans friendly, what gallaries can I find work by queer people, what business may have queer owners or employees.
Anyway, where should a pan trans gal hit up in Madrid? Where would I most likely be able to make a friend?
I have also learned about `impl Into<Cow<_>>` to accept a `&T` and `T`. Which, in retrospect, should have been obvious to me, but I just didn't put 2 and 2 together.
It should make my #rust code more cleaner/ergonomic!
"Elegant Library APIs in #Rust"
Now this is an interesting guide!
(I learned about the `impl Into<Option<T>>` which looks very useful!)
Ah another time where I don't know how to make #graphs. I'm trying to make a histogram. I should really learn gnuplot (but it can look bleh). Is there a modern tool for that sort of thing? That pynotebook thing?
Vizualizations can be very powerful and impressive and area I haven't put the practice into. I should rectify that.
Ung. I love #Rust in many ways, but the String/&str thing often wrecks my head. Why is there &str *and* &String? Making functions they can take either type is annoying. (currently trying to wrap my head around Borrow vs AsRef).
They call ours Free Statyo which is inspired.
Reminder there is RFC7282 for how to run "consensus system"
so recently github announced their own package registry, and today they announced their own opencollective type of thing. i think at this point it's safe to say microsoft is using github to try to take over the open source software world. (it was safe to say this when they acquired github, it's just very obvious now.)
