#introduction It's ya boi Bytemoth back at it again with some outdated magick and old K6 PCs.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.
"This was the beginning of surveillance capitalism, and the end of the Internet as I knew it. Now, it was the creative Web that collapsed, as countless beautiful, difficult, individualistic websites were shuttered. The promise of convenience led people to exchange their personal sites [...] for a Facebook page and a Gmail account."
- Edward Snowden from his book "Permanent Record"
In principle I like this idea, but "disagreeing well" requires a level of civility that I don't think the Internet is really built for.
It's very easy for humans to forget there's another actual human on the other end of the phone line, and it's difficult for people to empathise with a cartoon avatar rather than a human face with instant emotional feedback.
I think the better approach is to follow those rules in person, and then just not contribute to "the noise".
