actually the plural is netzflick

A nice thing about this site is that your mentions don’t become intolerable just because a bunch of people reshared something you said.

Just heard someone getting out of a Lyft say “Thank you, five stars to you too!” I think this is a delightful send-off we should all use in many circumstances

Going out with a TV series pitch today and tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Keith Calder boosted is the most well put explanation of what type of "data privacy" you can expect on #Mastodon.

Thanks @darius for writing this.

It's so nice also to see how well the email analogy works to explain Mastodon federation.

I think about this Phil Tippett quote about creative mismanagement a lot

Oh no! The Teen Choice Awards ratings sink to all time low. I guess they'll have to add an "Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film" award to next year's ceremony.

I wonder if agents realize how insulting it is to cancel a lunch meeting three hours before the appointment, and then have their assistant propose a new lunch time three months in the future. I didn’t even request this meeting in the first place!

I’m so glad Mastodon doesn’t have “quote RT.” So many of the problems at Twitter were magnified by how heavily the company pushed the “quote RT” dynamic. Just a series of UI/feature decisions that magnified bad behavior. invite info Show more

This is fascinating. Had no idea this was a way people try to shortcut a normal pitch/development process.

Some explanation: the “local” timeline is anything said publicly by a person on our instance of Mastodon. The “federated” timeline (from what I understand) is anything said publicly by anyone on our local instance AND anything said publicly by external people that a “local” person follows. As people on follow more off-network people, the federated timeline will become a lot busier.

I caught up with the new Starz show “Vida” and it’s fantastic. I highly recommend!
