Pinned toot

It's ya boi Bytemoth back at it again with some outdated magick and old K6 PCs. I've been procrastinating on an open-source sci-fan universe for the past 9 years, and a website about it for 6; Stopped working on them to run some Tumblr RP blogs for a while.

I'm very asocial, so there won't be much interaction from me unless I think I can add something useful/helpful.

climate collapse 

i'll say this until everyone is sick of hearing it: the business model of companies like google, facebook, twitter, fandom, and so on isn't enabling your access to information, it's controlling it. their goal is a world where exactly 3 web pages exist, you pay a monthly fee for each separately, all of your personal information and content is locked away in the cloud so you have to pay, and their algorithm decides what you're allowed to look at

I've noticed that the more time I spend on the internet, the more I only read things that were written, like, two weeks ago at most. It feels almost impossible to *find* anything older than that, let alone read it.

How did the internet, a vast medium with almost unlimited storage capacity, become the place where people only read or watch things created in the extremely recent past?
