I am so tired. Sheep are counting me.
Re-reading Kevin Kelly’s book The Inevitable and wondering how he would think about these new movements towards decentralization and distribution on the edges. https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/b7fJmQn7Cuc3gbXM9x8
#Mastodon celebrates it's two year anniversary. It is really impressive what all the people together with @Gargron achieved. Not only with Mastodon as such but also the underlaying technology #ActivityPub and the rich ecosystem of apps and tool around it. Thanks to all the people who made it happen! I'm sure the free, decentralized and open web has a bright future! #fediverse https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/10/mastodons-2-year-anniversary/

To be honest, I got a free pass because I've been a panel host for them in the past and have some good friends there. But this time, the feeling before going in feels different. My thinking and perspective has changed. Let's see how this works out today.
It is a sunny day so I might as well sit outside and have great conversations with others...
My two (enormous) stories about how companies turn you and your data into cash, and how to stop them, are both out today! You can read them for free!
Over iets meer dan een week zit ik in de trein naar Nuremberg voor IndieWebCamp. Wat ga ik daar doen? Daar ga ik eens over denken. https://diggingthedigital.com/indiewebcamp-2018/
Change takes time.
A year ago I was a couchpotato. Something had to change. I started running and today I ran the Singelloop in Utrecht. In a PR for me of 61:14 (official, my app said 61:30).

Now, let’s have a beer. https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/npwV3mLz8X4Mqi0DiU8 https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/lERnLctFzbtwfKMmqhQ https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/k3fhHVoxULYA7HGgp7U

@ton Op je Raspberry Pi?
A cool project we just launched with Olisto. When your Nest Protect smokedetector runs out of battery-powe, you'll automatically get a payment-request through Tikkie and a new set of batteries. For now, it just works in the Netherlands, other countries will follow soon. Read more on our site: https://olisto.com/smartsmokedetector/
We will be releasing the first stable version on October 17th (6 months after the first announcement).
This will include circles, collections, federation, video uploads and more!
We can't wait. Thank you for your support! #pixelfed
@cypnk all I can think when I see this chart is “How would you rate the album ‘Unknown Pleasures’”?
