For years, Affinity's users have been voting with their wallets, choosing perpetual licenses over Adobe's subscription-based suite. We were buying more than access to software; we were buying autonomy and the promise of ownership.

But now, with Canva's acquisition, it feels as though that promise is in jeopardy.

@Daojoan I was disappointed when I heard the news.

I realized today that there's been a dark and moody theme running through my photography since the start of the pandemic. It isn't all my work, but it has been a constant addition and is different than what I did before.

@mmdolbow thank you!

I don't know much about art, but I try to practice expressive photography, in which I try to put my emotions into the photos, so it makes sense it is there. I just didn't notice that I had so many of these darker images.

@bobhenryphotos he has the best quotes about photography!

The talking heads on TV news have done a good job of convincing their audiences that they aren't the elite. Hiring Ronna McDaniel to be a talking head should be a clue that the major news sources are fundamentally corrupt to their core.

A nauseating move by NBC News.

“NBC hires former RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, who has demonized the press and refused to acknowledge Biden was fairly elected”

@samlitzinger wow. This is a wtf move. The news is corrupt to the core.

Back in 2006 I took this photo of a cargo bike in Mexico. I wish I hadn't cut off the rear of the fender. This is well-loved. I think it's single speed with coaster brakes.

Threads to Mastodon observation. On Threads, you can post 10 images per post, but due to only being able to post four here only the first four are shown on Mastodon.

I just boosted a Threads post with photos from my Threads account if you want to see it.

I didn't alt tag them on Threads, so I'm sure I'm going to get yelled at here, but it is what it is. While I'm told I do a good job with my alt tags, I find them mentally draining to write.

Anyway, the Threads connection is working.

@kaleb I'm on Android and Windows. Thanks for the recommendation. Mastodon apps should just build the function in.

It's now possible to follow Threads accounts from Mastodon and see what they are posting. You can reply, but the replies aren't being imported into Threads, yet. So, I followed myself to see if it works. It does with a delay between when I post on Threads and when I see it here.

@bryanhansel@mstdn.social avatar

@cdevroe that makes sense. After it posts, the time stamps align correctly though.

@bryanhansel@mstdn.social avatar

@jamesthomas there's a five minute delay

@colomon there's a setting buried in Threads that has to be turned on. I can't remember where I found it.

bryanhansel,
@bryanhansel@mstdn.social avatar

@jamesjm as of right now that's how it is. Threads will start importing replies from Mastodon into Threads soon.

bryanhansel,
@bryanhansel@mstdn.social avatar

@colomon As of right now, you can follow Threads accounts from Mastodon without having to have a Threads account. But you can't follow Mastodon accounts from Threads, yet. But if you have a Threads account, you can turn on the beta Mastodon sharing option and then Mastodon users can find you (assuming that the admin didn't block Threads on your server).

I just followed my Threads account from my Mastodon account. That's fun.

@bryanhansel Hi, me.

@bryanhansel@mstdn.social avatar

Minnesota is supposed to get a big dump of snow, and I'm crossing my fingers that it hits the North Shore and the Grand Marais area. My kid has never snowboarded on good, fresh powder. It would be great if his second year of snowboarding would end with feet of fresh pow. Plus, they'd groom the Pincushion XC ski trails and I'd get a few km in. I'm only short ~950km of my goal. :)

@jumbanho no doubt. It's dry out there. We're in the bad wildfire zone right now

@rothko I doubt it, but I'm hoping!
