i wonder if a (federated) reddit alternative could work like mastodon does, though on the other hand i do feel like reddit _requires_, in a sense, a large mass of people (more than a handful of friends) to be effective. who else is gonna aggregate all the interesting links

really thinking about deleting reddit after reading this words.steveklabnik.com/a-sad-d

i don't think social media is bad per se, but i really think that _modern_ social media where millions of people get congragated into tiny rooms and are allowed to scream at each for as long as they want really isn't healthy.

i enjoy using mastodon because, although at first i thought despite, there are a handful of people here and the interactions are very... not-internetty.

Favourite type of jam?

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.
