Playing Super Mario 64 because Mario and because I can.


 
I need to pay more attention where I direct my bugs versus my social posts. That'll teach me to try multiple things while carrying a conversation at the same time.



 
Because the world needs yet another proprietary closed messaging system. http://www.aftvnews.com/amazon-possibly-working-on-new-stand-alone-messaging-app-called-anytime/

If it's any consolation, I saw an article the other day that Amazon is drawing government attention. The company has its fingers in too many pies and it's becoming a tad too powerful to escape Uncle Sam's notice.

Messaging is one of those things that everyone seems to think they can do it better and win everyone over and yet it doesn't ever go that way. Especially since companies just keep making new messaging platforms. Facebook is probably the only one to come close but even they are fragmented between WhatsApp and FB messenger.

I don't think people are trying to do better. I think they're trying to create a product uniquely their own that produces less incentive to go to an outside source. If that is true, "good" is less important than "good enough".



 
Interview with Evan Prodromou discussing his history with open source, open social networking, and AI.

The Changelog #257: The Power of Wikis, the Problem with Social Networks, and the Promise of A.I. with Evan Prodromou

Evan Prodromou has been involved in open source since the mid '90s. His open source travel guide – Wikitravel – grew up alongside Wikipedia and the web itself. In this episode, we hear Evan's history, try to solve open social networking once and for all, and learn how sprinkling a little artificial intelligence on to our products can yield big wins without having to shoot the moon.


 
Great blogpost from uhoreg summing up some of the recent Matrix community activity; Voyager, Bridges, Bots and more!

I just caught myself staring blankly at the computer screen for what must have been 10 min. I think it's time for some tea. 


 
occasionally I get a notification email from Friendica that I have a new follower yet the notification doesn't actually show up on the UI. I need to remember to go hunting through the logs and see if I can figure out what's causing it. 




 
Sipping #coffee and catching up on my social webs this morning. ☕️

Same. Though, I believe it's time for me to make some breakfast as well!



 

Support Matrix!


This has been one of my favorite projects this year. If you haven't checked it out yet head over to matrix.org and take a peek. It's grown a lot over the last year but now faces funding challenges. If you are able to help support the core team. Patreon, Liberapay, and bitcoin details are in the linked blog post.

A Call to Arms: Supporting Matrix!

TL;DR: if you like Matrix (and especially if you’re building stuff on it), please support us via Patreon or Liberapay to keep the core team able to work on it full-time, otherwise the project is going to be seriously impacted. And if you’re a company who is invested in Matrix (e.g. itching for Dendrite), please get in touch ASAP if you’d like to sponsor core development work from the team. And if you’re a philanthropic billionaire who believes in our ideals of decentralisation, encryption, and open communication as a basic human right – we’d love to hear from you too O:-)


 
Excellent, now I've got it so I can pick my targets on the fly.


 
Messing with my cross posting bot again because reasons.


 
Spent this morning taking care of some server maintanence and tinkering with bridges on my matrix server. Probably need to move on to some actual chores now though.


 
I have survived another Monday.

Well done! Hopefully you got enough coffee for Tuesday ;-)



 
I think I have enough #coffee in my system to start the week. Good morning! ☕

Enough coffee?

I don't understand.

Enough to start that is. I do of course need to maintain sufficient coffee levels in my blood stream.

Ah, that I understand. 😉




 
Huh, got a notification of a M6.8 quake near Santa Barbara, only the email is dated June 29 2025, web page says 1925, and it seems nothing actually happen. I wonder if someone bumped something they shouldn't have.

Ah yes I see, it's an event in their archives. Somehow it got into the alert system which probably only handled the last 2 digits of the year.
