From language and writing to the Hindu-Arabic numeral system, computers and Adobe Photoshop, our species has a history of inventing tools for augmenting our own intelligence. But what comes next?

It's gonna be a while before AI takes all our jobs though. Or maybe not, since it speaks with the confidence of a mediocre white man while gaslighting me throughout this whole reply.
All the recent Twitter drama has obviously sparked renewed interest in Mastodon and the fediverse, and that’s even included Bridgy Fed, my little IndieWeb side project that turns personal web sites into full-fledged fe...
The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement. For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously). "Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature. There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content. It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off. Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users. #twitter #mastodon #twittermigration

If everything works, this should show up as a toot on mastodon, and then also as a tweet on twitter, and any responses to the tweet or toot will show up as comments below this post. I use webmention.app to send webmentions to brid.gy, and then brid.gy sends toots, and then crossposter.masto.donte.co...
In my 2017 year review, I expressed my frustration with content discovery via third-party sites. Content takes time to put together and it has become a little frustrating that algorithms are now firmly in the middle, deciding to show content that I have shared and made available. T...

can someone w urban planning background explain why bollards to protect bike lanes and crosswalks are soft and crushable by cars? Why not make the car suffer if it hits?
