“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—:
God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

There is an absolutely excellent Russian proverb I just got reminded of.
"Stop talking to other people's drugs."
It basically means "that person making no sense or a weird kind of sense you don't understand? Stop trying to interact with them in order to understand, before their behavior becomes your problem."
One of the big takeaways from me from apconf was how much I've unfairly discounted the Pleroma community (tbqh because @lain is such a massive shitposter that I don't know how to make sense of it probably). But meeting everyone IRL really made clear how thoughtful that community is, behind all the jokes. Lots of excitement there while discussing (not just w/ the Pleroma folks, but esp with them) about how to make things genuinely better for fediverse users. Thanks for the good chats, friends.
I wrote a short story about love and loss and networks: Rogue Processes https://dustycloud.org/misc/rogue-processes.pdf
(CW: story is not about suicide, but it is mentioned)
