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?

@misc i mean ricki Tarr & Mekka okereke both curate a lot of good convos

I think posing good questions or prompts with a hashtag, boosting responses, and actually engaging with the replies tends to create good convos here

Bluesky was short term disastrous for the potential of Mastodon as a Twitter alternative but in the end it might have been necessary. This place wasn't ready, and journalists and left activists were much better able to form a functional ecosystem there. When we can share content from there back here it's gonna be so good.

@misc cool! And they raise some fantastic points here. It is kinda funny the fediverse was so righteous about opt in from BS when the fediverse itself is right now multi protocol and opt out? Lol

Germany’s out of hand, crazy version of anti-antisemitism continues in full swing. Last week cancellation of Nancy Fraser, this week that of the rector of Glasgow University.

Dr Ghassan Abu-Sittah, a British-Palestinian medic, has claimed he was invited to give a conference in Berlin about his work as a surgeon in Gaza but was denied entry to the country.

Yes! Read the ruling! No “shadow voucher” program using state funds!! Judge rules Alaska correspondence school reimbursements unconstitutional https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/education/2024/04/12/judge-rules-alaska-correspondence-school-reimbursements-unconstitutional/

@CarrieinFbx seems like Treg should recuse himself, since w/6 kids at $4,500/yr, that’s up to $27k annually and $324,000 for all the kids religious indoctrinations

“Attorney General Treg Taylor’s wife, Jodi Taylor, wrote in 2022 about her plan to use correspondence school allotments to pay for her children’s education at a private Catholic school.”

@seachanger@alaskan.social avatar

@CarrieinFbx yeah it’s like Dunleavy’s only accomplishment as a legislator rigtt? Short lived & unconstitutional! But they had a good run…

Also Kendall should def bring up the Taylor family’s conflict of interests in court if Alaska appeals or asks for a stay!

Just last week, Pelosi signed a letter urging Biden to halt military funding to Israel.

Today she... is whipping votes to do just that?

I just noticed that after I take a picture with my Samsung android phone, it automatically edits/adjusts it - most noticeably the lighting, but probably other elements as well. I can't figure out how to turn this "feature" off. Guys I am so tired of technology.

@seachanger@alaskan.social avatar

@albertcardona @shauna I had a retro looking Panasonic lumix with a Leica lens that I loved, but now it’s kinda obsolete without wifi and has taken a beating over the years. Good news is there are a lot of used cameras from the last 5-8 years to choose from out there… I realized I walk so much around alaska that I’d like to have one that can zoom in on cool things I see.

US Drought Monitor analysis now showing "abnormal dryness" in Southeast Alaska south of Petersburg to Craig line. This is due to below normal precipitation since the start of 2024 and the lack of mountain snowpack.

@AlaskaWx this crazy low snowpack combined with any kind of low rain trend this summer would be pretty tough. weird how quick the rainforest dries up without constant inputs

16 days until it has to come off the loom. Of course there is much much more after that- it will get fringe, fur, metal cones. But only 1/3 left to weave- but no time like the last minute! eek! #fibrearts #alaskalife #handmade #artwork #weaving

I'VE BEEN INTERACTING LESS WITH PEOPLE ON THE FEDIVERSE. MY FEED IS CLOGGED WITH TAKES ABOUT TECH THAT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND OR WISH TO LEARN MORE ABOUT, TEPID TAKES ABOUT THE NEWS, AND WHAT I'M GONNA CALL BUMMERISM. IT'S LIKE FOR EVERY GENUINELY RAD ACCOUNT I FOLLOW, I FOLLOW TEN THAT JUST BOOST TAKES I AGREE WITH (TRUMP IS EVIL! THE GOP IS EVIL! THE DEMS ARE FUCKING UP! CAPITALISM IS EVIL! CLIMATE IS BAD!) WITHOUT ADDING MUCH SUBSTANCE.

I'M TOO SENTIMENTAL TO SLASH THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE I FOLLOW, AND I'M NOT GONNA GO TO FUCKING BLUESKY, BUT I HAVE FOUND MYSELF JUST RAVING INTO OBLIVION MORE.

ANYWAY, I GUESS WHAT I'M SAYING IS, IF YOU WANT TO PICK A FIGHT WITH ME OVER BLOWING UP THE WRONG MOON, MY CHOICE OF CONDIMENTS, WHERE TO BUILD MY GIANT LASER, OR WHICH CITY TO COOK WITH A HUGE FRESNEL LENS, I WOULD PROBABLY REALLY LIKE THAT.

old news but bears repeating, our economy is so defined by fossil fuels that to hold wealth makes you an outsized emitter. so weird that the people most responsible for crashing the climate are rewarded with the most material comfort & privilege
