Twitter is like walking through a public demonstration with everyone shouting at you.

Mastodon is like walking into a neighborhood pub and having a chat over a pint.

OK, time for new folks:

I'm a married, cisgender straight male who tries hard to be an ally to those who aren't. I live and work on the beautiful coast of California.

My degree is in history, but I work in market research, mostly by accident, and I'm interested in almost everything.

I'm a sci-fi fan and car nut, politically on the left, and I try to live by Wheaton's Law: "Don't be a dick."

I sometimes post in other languages. Don't be alarmed: yes, I'm really an American.

It's that time again. Doing what I can to stave off the encroaching darkness.

Poll: Have you moved from Instagram to Pixelfed or another service in the Fediverse? (If yes, reply with your link!)

Poll: Do you use Mastodon's automated post deletion feature?

New followers: welcome to the Fediverse!

Etiquette here is a little different from that on Twitter. Please put something in your bio and start posting if you want to be followed back. Give me a reason to follow and I will!

This TEDx talk from six years ago just surfaced in my YouTube stream. If you've seen it, feel free to ignore this. If you haven't seen it, maybe you need to, or maybe someone you know needs to. Either way, this is brilliant, is easily the most worthwhile 17 minutes I've spent in a long time, and is well worth your time as well. Please watch.

As a reminder to my fellow Trek fans in the US: there are plenty of overseas fans who can't watch the new stuff yet, so maybe use the CW function here for the time being. Thank you!

If you've ever wondered what it was like on the birdsite in the early days, before it was invaded by celebrities and politicians and other assorted miscreants, well, here you are.

Welcome to Mastodon. 😊🐘

For those of you who are or have been on Twitter, what is the status of your Twitter account?

Note to anyone posting to Pixelfed using Tusky: delete and re-draft doesn't actually work.

Just curious: do you have more than one Mastodon account?

It seems the most reliable notifications come from the official app.

Annoying that the official app doesn't honor one's default post privacy settings.

Can we all just agree to hang out here and let the birdsite continue to spiral?

Star Trek: Picard S2E9 Spoiler Alert 

As the brother of someone who committed suicide by hanging, and was the one who found him, I really wish they'd had some kind of trigger warning on this week's episode.
