I just can NOT look at Twitter anymore. It's too full of awful and I don't have the reserves for it. Mastodon is kinda boring 'cause it's so quiet and I have comparatively few friends here, but at least it doesn't make me want to die slash kill people.
So now I just need to get the creator of Endless Jeopardy to move their bot to botsin.space.
A backend service I can run on one of my servers, and an iOS tool for pushing content into the pipeline, with camera/photo access, text/markdown editor, and some protocol for identifying what services are connected on the backend so I can specify where something should go when I post, as well as a system for defining defaults (which includes being able to define them as code, so they can be content-aware)
The more I think about it, the more I think I want a set of tools for posting content, divorced from the destination of the post, that will distribute content to appropriate places. I take a picture, it'll post it to instagram (and eventually a fediverse equiv too), I write a short comment, it goes here, and twitter, and facebook. I write something longer, it goes on one of my blogs. I write something longer with the date as the title, and it goes specifically to _that_ blog. etc.
We’d get the assignment for next class at the start, then he’d explain how to actually do it. I’d sit in the back and just /do/ it. Once followed the instructor out during his smoke break to point out an error in the assignment, which he corrected when we resumed.
He was my favorite college instructor. Good guy.
