Bluesky Out of Beta + Various Social Media Thoughts, February 2024

This will be the cue for some folks to have a handwringing moment about whether blocking is the right thing to do, discourse, echo chambers, blah blah blah, so I want to be very clear about this: I don’t give a shit. You can spend your time online with bots and/or shitty people if you think it’s important and you’re striking a blow for intellectual freedom by doing so. I wish you joy in that endeavor. I’ll be spending my time online with people I actually enjoy.

This comment was good enough to add this “guy” to my RSS feed, look into what he does, realize he’s kind of a big-time author who writes good books, and get one of his books. What would I do without internet rabbit holes?
