Not from my house, but from Twitter. The news about the takeover has pushed me to make the jump, although I haven’t found any of the alternatives (MeWe, TapaTalk, Mastodon…) to be quite as good. That said, it took me a long time to get used to using Twitter after G+ got shut down. THAT loss was a big spur to getting my own domain name for this blog, in an attempt to ensure that the content I put up here stays online for as long as I can manage it.
So, if you see me on Twitter, that’s not me. If you can come find me on Mastodon or any of the others, I’m @Dtrasler and I’d love to follow you there.
I’m also an unhappy camper. Imagine being able to end world hunger, or give every American a million dollars and be left holding 7 billion, and choosing to be Elon Musk.
It seems such an obvious thing, doesn’t it? To use that money to help people. I wonder what happens when people who have experience of struggle become wealthy – do they fortify themselves against more bad times, or help others out of trouble?
