Making is all about screwing up.

It's about having the confidence to screw up in increasingly creative ways.

It's the art of getting it wrong with such flair and panache that you can't help but be entertained by your own ineptitude.

It's the ability to foil so many of your own plans that you are left with no option but to stumble into a solution that works.

A solution, that when found, leaves you awestruck by what you have accomplished.

And it is in pursuit of that awe that the Maker makes.

Here's a flow chart of how the fediverse works.

You don't ever see all of the fediverse from one instance. The vast majority of what you see is people followed by people on your instance.

Hashtag searches are limited to that, too.

1) Boost cool stuff to all your followers on other instances, especially if they contain hashtags;

2) Use hashtags.

In the middle of an emotional day, I paused long enough to hear a woman say, “I hope there’s never a day I take the ferry that I don’t pause to say ‘wow’ before getting on.” A good reminder.... Wow.
