Looking for independent bookshops in Center City. I've checked out Joseph Fox (good), Shakespeare & Co (Reminds me of B Dalton?). Any other places I should check out?

Finally going through the leftovers from the office holiday party. Consuming the unopened food.

#Mastodon #homework!

Once a day, pull up the local timeline and look for toots from newbs, and reply to them.

Win-win: makes people feel welcome and you feel warm and fuzzy for being nice to them.

Mastodon feels like Slack with a Twitter interface. And I’m ok with that.

FOSSCON was worth it, even though ESR was a no show for his 1:00 talk. Got to hear about FreedomBox and the 900MHz and 1.2GHz ham ardio mesh system the local amateur radio operators have been developing.

Very cool feature -- Delete and redraft. Now I can fix my typos and real-time typing debris.

When I look hard enough, I find what I'm looking for. In this case, Peer Tube a distributed video sharing system. peertube.mastodon.host/videos/

How did I not hear about Mastodon until two weeks ago?

I highly recommend exploring around here.

Since there's no algorithm deciding what it thinks you should see, it takes a little more upfront work to populate your home timeline. But it's not hard and the payoff is pretty fast. Two tips! ✨

Everyone interested in Open Source Software, FOSSCON is this Saturday - fosscon.us/
