https://sevvie.ltd/homelessness/a-homeless-halloween-for-those-who-need-it-most/ Giving a Halloween trick-or-treating experience for the kids in the shelter has been nothing short of amazing. Happy (prelated) Halloween, everyone. http://dlvr.it/Qpvp5j

https://sevvie.ltd/homelessness/the-homeless-shelter-of-the-mind/ This one's a bit dark. But do read it to the end... it's been a while since I've written, and this is me digging my mind out of the mentality of a shelter. http://dlvr.it/QnzCk5

@nether I'll stick with the Caldera CD I got with a book in the 90s. http://dlvr.it/QnZ4n9

@zlg Actually, I'm coming to appreciate your walls of text. Limited mostly to my phone while I am in a shelter, I find myself more terse than I would like to be -- on Twitter, I'm known for long threads that few read ;) I'd considered providing a service such as you've mentioned, providing inexpensive fediverse & matrix instances to people, but the margins are so thin I'd have to sell a thousand to make it worth it. I might still go through with it if I can find the capital to bootstrap it. Allowing people to own their data is such an important thing to me. But to market such a thing, it would almost have to be done on the existing social networks, like Twitter and Facebook. I doubt they'd oppose me in such an action, even if the results were taking from their time-on-page and users. Not while I'm such a small time entrepreneur, at least. That's the double edged sword of it all... Its a larger problem that needs addressed, but won't be solved by just a small timer like me. The internet was meant to be decentralized, but Pareto's Law works against such intentions, and every half a generation we're going to see new technology and new players fill that 20% and hold that 80%. Hell, even crypto finds itself subject to Pareto's Law, with Bitcoin and Ethereum sitting dominant, and with the mining pools and ASIC/GPU farms sitting dominant upon them. The fediverse itself has a small handful of highest-population instances running Mastodon. Even in a distributed or federated network, you're gonna have bigwigs and independents... I'm mostly rambling at this point. As with any trust, it is the size that starves it in the end, that makes it too slow to respond to innovation. The current trend in innovation is decentralization and personal ownership/control and trustlessness; it's why Gab is faltering in the exact same way Twitter is, and why Google and Facebook are suffering similar fates. ActivityPub hasnt even reached potential yet; if WordPress integrates, which some plugins are aiming to do, we'll be a step closer to a federated internet, and a federated internet gives people a lot more freedom than they have now. Will it be perfect? Not likely. Goldman Sachs found a way to break Tether's stability, and likewise a giant can end up building a central hub on ActivityPub in the same way Google once built on XMPP and did their best to proprietarize it. But it's a step closer to digital liberty. And each step is a step worth taking. @insanityisfree @riker @Liberty4Masses @bigl0af @astheroth http://dlvr.it/QnYscW

The "private" argument also falls flat given their open collaboration with governments and willingness to facilitate their interests. Facebook and its ilk are about as private as the railroads in 1899. @insanityisfree @riker @ChrisWilson @tardanbizonov @ThePoliceState @Razorboi @rationalreview @Randy_England @sllpodcast @ChristianAnarchist @ancap_86 @HamDancer @thomaslknapp @Alexmerced @CopBlock @maxalext @Liberty4Masses @FTL_Ian @bigl0af @astheroth http://dlvr.it/QnLQdp

@debbie No family, scarce on friends, and when a person I was trying to work for turned out to be addicted to drugs and ran out, I was the target of all hatred. I was staying at his place so when everything was said and done, I ended up wandering a city I don't know trying to find a shelter. I was lucky to find one. My work machine is still back at that house. This laptop is a cheap chromebook knockoff and I'm tethered to my phone for internet, just to keep working. It's not nothing though. http://dlvr.it/QnLLrz

@debbie @insanityisfree I'll look into them, though if DO screws me I might be starting from scratch. I recently ended up homeless and the crappy laptop from which I am now working doesn't have its SSH keys on the droplets, making backing up the systems a problem atm. x.x http://dlvr.it/QnLLjx

@insanityisfree speaking of Censor This... DigitalOcean, who hosts my blog as well as the instance from which I'm messaging you, has locked my account. The vpns are still up but things are looking odd. If I get vanished from the internet, I just want people to know. http://dlvr.it/QnL4tD
