I have been spending a bit of time the last few days on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr one one thing I notice right away is that the most common post type seems to be screenshots of posts from one of the other networks.
How can we take advantage of this type of federation being normalized and integrate that knowledge into our anticapitalist self hosted decentralized future?
Yeah, that's about right...

I've been thinking for years now that I don't let myself fully enjoy albums now like I did in the past.
It's clearly due to technology: it's far too easy to create a playlist or something and just listen to individual tracks.
Anyone interested in starting an album "book"-club or similar?
I'm thinking of picking something new from Bandcamp (or other fairly freely accessible platform), having a few weeks to listen to it, read the lyrics etc. Then join together somehow (xmpp or irc room, jitsi meeting) and discuss what we think.

How did I not know that youtube-dl works on ABC iView?
Thanks to @Shrigglepuss for showing that it can work with BBC iPlayer, prompting me to check it with our national broadcaster...

As an aside, is "angst" really a verb?
What the actual fuck? From ABC news:
"In Australia, we rightly angst about the Victorian infections racing away from us, over 70 a day.
In the United States they reach that number every two minutes. And that's just those who are tested."
That really puts those numbers into context. What we consider bad for a day, USA gets in 2 minutes!
Well, that was a bit dissonant... #nowplaying just went from Iron Maiden to Neil Diamond 😀
