@tek hey dude, I've been off of Mastodon for a little while because the community around my instance kind of fell off a cliff and eventually moved to Discord. I would still really like to be involved with Mastodon and I think finding a new instance is necessary there. Having said that, it would be really awesome if I could create an account with freeradical.zone. I'm really into all of the things that seem to define the community like tech, privacy, leftist leaning politics, etc

I've got three weeks to find a job before I lose my backup plan to foreclosure, and another month past that before I lose my home. I need gas money to get to job interviews. I'm eating the shipping on these bracelets to try and cover that. If you don't wear #jewelry or these aren't your style, please boost. They're anodized aluminum, brass, bronze, and stainless steel, all 7 inches, and all $15 to paypal.me/tarlimanjoppos or cash.app/$tarlimanjoppos #maille #art #mastoart #chainmail

#PSA for car drivers: if you don't know how to pass a cyclist safely who rides in the middle of the lane, just use the entire opposite lane to pass. it's not hard. most of the time lanes are marked so it is easy to find. I wish you much success.

The EU broke the internet 

"In a stunning rejection of the will of five million online petitioners, and over 100,000 protestors this weekend, the European Parliament has abandoned common-sense and the advice of academics, technologists, and UN human rights experts, and approved the Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive in its entirety."

Trump, Christianity 

Thinking about it more, I'm convicted by my feelings of righteous judgement of the people who continue to prop up Donald Trump as a Christian leader in spite of bribing porn starts and signing Bibles.

Yet, even Donald Trump is loved deeply and personally by God, and his followers are just as much our brothers and sisters as anybody else.

I don't know how to reconcile these two things. Anybody have thoughts on this?

Twitter has 320 million active monthly users

Instagram has 1 billion active monthly users

The Fediverse is too focused on a Twitter-style communications and should instead be focused on the far more successful Instagram style.

Facebook sheisterism 

Facebook wants to become WeChat...don't be fooled into thinking that they're ever going to become more focused on privacy. Instead, they want to continue centralizing everything they possibly can until they're the "One Stop Shop" for every aspect of your life.
