The rich moron
and other internet stories

Looking down at my black trainers, at autumnal ground cover made of spectacularly orange pine needles

The rich moron took over the fun community website, and suddenly it feels like a place I don’t want to be, rather than a place I actively like to be. Like a lot of people, I’m spending more time over on the alternative distributed community, Mastodon. I am @gilest@mastodon.me.uk and I’m enjoying the experience of meeting new friends, as well as finding old ones.

This week’s Masto-highlights also included:

I wrote up some notes on How Mastodon is different if that’s your bag. I liked the little stars.

I’ve been playing around with iA Presenter for a few weeks and I like it very much, although I’ve not actually used it to do a presentation yet. Probably because it’s easy to find opportunities to try writing with it, and much harder to find opportunities to try presenting. It is a very satisfying thing to play around with, though. I’ve got a few invites to hand out if anyone wants one, just email me.

This week’s agile comms masterclass, organised by the lovely people at Staatslabor in Bern, was a lot of fun. I always enjoying doing these sessions, and I always drastically underestimate how exhausting they are. I’m usually completely useless for almost all of the following day. I need to get better at that; tips and suggestions are most welcome.

Exhaustion aside, thanks to anyone reading this who came along to our Zoom call on Thursday, it was great to spend a couple of hours with you.

One thing that fills me with joy is seeing workshop participants getting into the habit of regular weeknoting or similar open-working.

Wonderful stuff all round.
