It's even worse than it appears..
In the age of Mastodon, we're going to rely more on our blogs because we will be able to.#
i have a Tesla. Lovely car. After a year, I still love driving it. but it's funny -- no Nazis or smelly wanna be dictators show up in the passenger seat when I'm driving . I think Elon should get Twitter to run like a Tesla and in the meantime just stfu. I hope he knows what stfu means. #
Video demo: I didn't want long posts to dominate the feed, so I came up with this approach, a down-arrow that reveals the full content, in place, without having to go anywhere else. It's this approach that would make it possible to have indefinite length posts in Masto or Twitter or whatever, without dominating the feed.#
I'm close to having my Hello World for Mastodon in JavaScript app working, but could use help from people who have been down this road.#
  • I had to say this on Twitter first.#
  • Elon Musk is making the same mistake that Kevin Durant did when he signed with the Nets.#
  • First thing he did after signing, he had a press conference where he dis'd the Knicks. I guess he was thinking there was some kind of rivalry. There wasn't. No one had any feelings at all for the Nets. A complete zero among NY basketball fans. And the Knicks, well we have a lot of heart there and for the most part it's an ache. The last thing we have any energy for is an idiot who has no idea of the place he's entered, and where we're at, basketball-wise.#
  • And Musk has no idea where Twitter users are re Trump. #
  • I don't know what led him to believe anyone had any more juice for Trump. Even the people who liked him are tired. He had a good run, as far as trolls go, but we're just tired. Not even remotely excited. #
  • Trump is all wrung out. Even he knows it. But somehow that fact escaped Musk.#
  • The rich folk are coming for your Social Security. You know -- the money that was taken from your paycheck so you wouldn't be poor when you got old. #
  • They got all the cookies, but they want yours too. #
  • And they use some of their money to buy ads for Republican politicos to convince you to vote for this gift. This picture perfectly illustrates how they do it. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
