This tho:

“in the old days, if you reinvented the wheel, you would get your wrist slapped for not reading. But nowadays people are reinventing the flat tire. I'd personally be happy if they reinvented the wheel, because at least we'd be moving forward. If they reinvented what #Engelbart, did we'd be way ahead of where we are now.”

I'm not saying that #AlanKay isn't brilliant—incomprehensible too. It's like he's seen a past that we haven't and wants his future back. Like a reverse-poet–prophet.

Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.

Later, when your Home timeline is buzzing, go in and unfollow people you decide you're not enjoying so much now.

Then do that again a few times. Then some more. Forever.

friendly reminder that discord constantly hits /api/v6/science every time you do basically anything in discord with the details of what you did, which is an honestly creepy amount of data collection, and if you're using the browser version of discord you can disable that by pasting the following rule into your ublock:

REMINDER! If you own an original Xbox, you should check the hardware revision version ASAP! Any Xbox pre-v1.6 uses a cheap capacitor which after a decade will corrode and destroy the motherboard permanently.

I’m busting mine out rn (and softmodding it while I’m at it). I suggest you do as well, since it’s essentially a self destruct on vintage hardware.
