I've had this #Economics video in my YouTUBE "Watch Later" queue for a long time. It's pretty long but it's #Brilliant!
I think it's the type of plain English explanations of who's causing most of the grief in the world and in some ways the right things that should be done about it in a way that #Resist #MAGA and #Anarchist's can all agree. (MAGA trigger warning Noam Chomski appears)

I have an idea for somebody in this forum to display data in a meaningful way.
The y-axis would be a measure of time and the zero line is definitively the top of the graph.
The x-axis is the days of a year in the calendar so 365 or 366.
One line (red) would represent [last record breaking high temperature - the control date] for a location.
The other line (blue) would represent [last record low temperature - the control date] for a location.
Animate it on the control date.

Probably nobody needs another distraction in their lives, but I see why the hashtag is catching fire. I'm just a couple paragraphs into the users manual and I get it.

Hello! I really like my feed: I learn lots of new things about #infosec, #crypto, #coops and #opensource.

However I'm missing some things--can you help me find them?

I want to talk more about people, working with them, their limitations and potential. I want to talk about #governance, #facilitation, #voting, #cognitivebiases and other concrete things that can be tried (and falsified) in #groups.

Let me know if you're interested, or boost if you think you have followers who are interested.


Anybody have strong opinions about visualization options for stock market type trading data? I don't want my personal opinions effect potential answers.

Hey hello, ? ever. I picked vis.social as my first because it's purpose is like candy to me, but I have some pressing questions for @scott or maybe @hugo because I'm trying to install a Mastodon instance on my own server
Not going the Docker route cause I'm having redis problems in Docker during a NextCloud OCR module install; port already in use

I'm trying a stand alone Mastodon install but got hung up on a Ruby gems dependencies step
