twitter decentralization, in the news
Extremely pleased to have provided the closing quote for this Verge article on the Twitter decentralization announcement.
I wrote a blog on Dungeons and Dragons 5e. It's a mixed bag for me, having played AD&D since the 1980s. https://blog.paco.to/2019/dungeons-and-dragons-5e-thoughts/
My first ever fictional short story. "Terms and Conditions". https://blog.paco.to/2018/terms-and-conditions-short-story/
One of my reverse culture shocks moving back to the US was the prevalence of tipping and the various delivery services that get things delivered. I blogged about it. https://blog.paco.to/2019/tips-in-the-gig-economy/
I wrote a blog post on how to send AWS CloudTrail to ElasticSearch and get a neat dashboard. This is my first blog that will have comments via mastodon. https://blog.paco.to/2019/cloudtrail-to-elasticsearch/
@Framasoft just announced its ambitions for 2020:
* education on several fronts
* #mobilizon, a platform to mobilize people
* increasing popularity of peertube
* "cloud Framasoft": a single account for several services
The rumours are true, we are working on a mobile app.

OMG: I've just discovered a way to use Mastodon for commenting on my blog (based on Hugo). Can't wait to try this out! https://git.wadza.fr/me/comtodon
I think this article from The Onion in 1997 anticipates the Amazon Echo Auto perfectly.
@janellecshane Just heard you on Marketplace! Wow. Nice work. Somehow missed that you have written a book. Gonna go acquire it. I love your work and have spent many minutes laughing at your results (the ones that are supposed to be funny 😜) Congratulations on the book and the good coverage.
I ordered glasses from a local optician. $330. Nearly 4 weeks later they haven't arrived. It's a comedy of errors. In the meantime I discovered an online shop that does really great service and has a huge variety of frames from $10 on up. Finally I just cancelled my order. They offered to make me a free pair of sunglasses as compensation. But with a $330 refund I could buy glasses AND sunglasses online with money leftover. Last time I try to buy from a brick-and-mortar optician, sadly.
