Okay after 10 minutes of use with very tempered expectations, I'm legit impressed by the Affinity Publisher beta. It's a bit buggy, as expected, but looks promising: https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/publisher/
I'm very disappointed in Mastodon tonight, and earlier today while I was mowing my lawn I was thinking about ways to move users to smaller instances and give them better information about which instance to choose.
Perhaps numbers or users on a given instance shouldn't be shown - I picked this instance because I didn't know what I was doing, didn't know the culture, and lacked imagination, and it's fair to assume that other people who've never used Mastodon will be just as ignorant of it.
I work at Panic. We are publishing our second game after Firewatch. It's called Untitled Goose Game, and it's made by House House. You get to play a horrible goose! https://goose.game
I've been waiting in anticipation for these Design & Content Conference talks to be released since I attended. Some of the best talks I've ever seen at one event. I highly recommend watching the entire collection: https://vimeo.com/album/4881563
This is the best tournament. https://twitter.com/spies_please/status/1033069367301423105
It’s not data ethics, it’s ethics.
It’s not data privacy, it’s privacy.
It’s not digital rights, it’s human rights in the digital/networked age.
Let’s make sure we keep the focus on what’s important and not allow well-understood terms, concepts, and existing rights to be redefined by those with vested interests in clouding* the conversation and eroding our human rights by backdooring in a new set of lesser rights for the digital/networked aspects of our selves.
* See what I did there? 😛
When people say that redistributing wealth means everyone will be poor, I remember that study that said that after $70K/year, people’s life satisfaction actually decreases. Here’s how many times the Forbes top 10’s net worth would pay that number:
Koch brothers (combined): 1,385,714
Bill Gates: 1,271,428
Larry Ellison: 842,857
Larry Page: 637,142
Sergey Brin: 620,000
Interesting thread about the security / abuse vulnerabilities that are inherent to federated platforms like Mastodon. https://twitter.com/adrienneleigh/status/1030213888850030592
“It’s like I’ve moved to a new town where nobody knows me, but everyone is looking to make new friends.”
The final quote of this Wired article sums it up perfectly.

The official Louder Than Ten Mastodon instance. We're an online school for digital project management and operations. Probably lots of discussions around working with clients, kanban boards, and getting stuff done.
