Privacy is not a Premium Feature

Lately, I have been trying to figure out what the restriction(s) on free accounts would be on Silk Floss. At first, I was thinking free accounts would only allow public content. Because public content can be cached for long periods of time on a CDN, there is little overhead in allowing only public content and making private content a "premium" (read: non-free) feature, since the costs in serving private content are much higher.

There is more to the social web than a stream

Based on Jack Dorsey's statement, I read a lot into ActivityPub which is mentioned in the replies multiple times. I imagine it's the inevitable standard that the bluesky team will choose as it does fit Twitter's use cases (unless they fall down a rabbit hole of decentralization tech). Although, I'm not convinced that Twitter will become an ActivityPub server, they may only be an ActivityPub client.

And.... on Drupal now!

It may not be pretty, but I've migrated everything to Drupal now. I'm using the default Bartik theme. I got the sources added to the images, but having the entire URL displayed is somewhat annoying, I would prefer to have it only show the domain name. I didn't see a module to do this, so perhaps a problem for a different day.

WordPress... UGH

I'm already starting to get annoyed with WordPress. I can't seem to get the attribution to exist for the featured image. The best I can do is put it in the post somewhere, but that's going to be a pain when I migrate as I'll have to manually move all that over. I tried a few different plugins, but none of them worked. I know I could create a subtheme and print the caption or descrption on the page, but I'm trying to avoid coding something I know I am going to throw away anyways.

Synthesis of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

The first time I saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I stopped watching the movie when the opening credits rolled roughly seventeen minutes into the film. Unfortunately, the first time I viewed the film I didn’t stick around long enough for the most amazing parts of the film. When I finally finished watching the film all the way through I was thoroughly impressed by the use of a multitude of techniques to achieve a look and feel that can only be described as amazing.
