Yep, the news that #Boeing used Dawn soap as an industrial lubricant is not surprising. Dawn is an industrial petroleum product, its cute duckling campaign notwithstanding.

Dawn donates product and the oil industry donates cash to environmentalist org's whose mission is to aid oiled wildlife. Those lil ducklings are greenwashers!

(Chapter 1 in #OilBeach has a section about this)

@inquiline and that goes down the drain to be processed by the water treatment plant?

Of course.

With the @ifnotnowboston account here, I'm thinking I'd like to lean in to what the fedi is good at, and use it more for community and conversation, than breaking news and broadcast. Like, more discussion prompts I guess. Are there some good examples of accounts doing that successfully?

It was a mindfnck that good, productive convos are happening all. the. time.

Getting high on the algorithm can reduce our sensitivity for engagement.

Once a week or so, a post of mine will get 30+ engagement (boosts/likes), which triggers a bot monitoring for the most engaged content by instance.

That low threshold is what slowly healed my broken brain: it doesn’t take a lot to have productive, good, insightful without an algorithmic crutch.

Trying to solve societal problems with conservative positions is impossible because they're incompatible with modern life. You might as well try to change a tire using a piece of uncooked bacon.

How to know when you've crossed over to full, freakin' paranoia?? When you read an article like this & immediately envision #Christofascist legislation to grow "abandoned" frozen embryos via artificial wombs so they can become neglected, traumatized kids--oops, I mean properly-educated RW voters. Voila... the next anti-abortion tool. 🤦‍♀️

I def need a day away from the computer.

He’s identified a phenomenon he calls “’ - the bias to build our online and real as , and how this has made us more tolerant of similarly autocratic CEOs and politicians. He’s even optimistic and energetic enough to see how the blockchain could be employed to distribute in a more democratic fashion.”

@ivory

For non-Threads users opening Threads posts in Ivory app, the default open action is…to the Meta app?

That is an existential risk to the non-Threads Mastodon clients.

Do you know if it is technically feasible to open a Threads post and stay in Ivory?

Asking for a good friend.

I was pregnant with twins and bedridden during the entire O.J. trial. I watched every minute of it. Punditry became a thing since there was wall to wall, never ending coverage. In my mind, it was the beginning of the end for cable news.
