i'm sam, i used to live in new york city but then my wife got into gradschool so now we live in austin, texas
i've got a puppy who is bad but endearing and a job doing computers that is fine but irritating
i love but basically never play table-top rpgs
i also like (increasingly weird) music and being Mad Online about politics and computers
i don't really like videogames or anime and i'm not queer or a furry so you probably shouldn't follow me
probably bye for now Show more
so i'm likely not going to be around here very much for the next while
as i said earlier, i got back on twitter and honestly, i really missed it
mastodon has a lot going for it, but i'm a 33-year-old cishet white guy, i'm not a furry, i don't care about anime or videogames, i *barely* care about FOSS. i *do* love current events and politics and tv. i never really felt like i belonged here.
which is *fine*! literally the entire world is for people like me!
see y'all around
i'm back in my bullshit*
*twitter (i'm obviously also @swizzard there)
Also, in terms of anti-harassment and personal protection type improvements, maybe implement instance only messages?
Give some middle ground between being on a completely private instance that doesn't talk to everyone and having to let everyone in and not having any meaningful privacy.
That would be nice to have and would make being on one instance instead of another much more meaningful. You know, the whole 'fostering your own community' thing that mastodon is supposed to help with.
