„These two US companies, between them, control what we can and cannot do on 99% of the world’s everyday mobile devices. We are talking about a de facto monopoly on the bounds of human communication.”

@LienRag Yes, it’s mirrored to GitHub so it can reach people. And yes, we will use the status quo against the interests of the status quo ( Also, last I checked, GitHub wasn’t owned by Google or engaged in egregious surveillance (though don’t expect me to sing Microsoft any praises).

Reaching out again is a PITA.

But you don’t have to keep track of each person individually.

Imagine it’s the end of the month and now…

Here’s the very very very lazy way of following up:

1. Open your business email account

2. Get into your „Sent” folder/tab

3. Check your last received/sent message with a particular person within this month

4. Send a new email reply/follow up

5. Pick the next person and repeat the two prior steps

Four years ago I met Mike who’s been developing It has always been a paid service but now (and at least until the end of 2020) he’s making it a public service.

The crux is…

You set a writing goal (X words) and when you write you only see the last letter you just typed.

This helps to get into flow.

I just tried it again (a few minutes ago) with 120 words and here’s the result…

Writing like that feels pretty good and it kills the inner censor/editor.

I hope it’s helpful for you.

Life is about discovery, not popularity;
it’s about permanence, not the ephemeral.

It’s about the people you connect with,
not whom you influence or manipulate.

Life is about being, not being something.

hello world, just quit twitter and i'll try this new social network, let's see :blob_aww:

You’ve seen it and you're ready for the next one.
