It’s in vogue to diss Signal but really Moxie got the scope and threat model right.
Not federated? Yeah cause when you have nothing then a centralized alternative is better than nothing and way simpler to build.
Relying on big-corp infra? Your secure messaging solution is not so secure if it’s easily blocked or ddossed out of existence.
Linked to another id like phonenr? Either you establish connection to real id or you suffer the spam problem.

nice visualization of some traffic problems I was thinking about some days ago (not my viz), maybe something for @simongerman600

don't get mad at yourself for stray thoughts, just acknowledge them and move on. If you have an itch, scratch it
Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.
So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc
I used to meditate frequently, 5+ years ago. Nothing fancy, just 10 minutes in a quiet room with my eyes closed, focusing on counting breaths / breathing deeper and longer

Unfollow toxic people and watch how much nicer your timeline becomes.
every night I'm like "ok starting tomorrow I'm gonna get my shit together and do things right" and then the next day the irrational anxiety is back
anyway maybe I should stop drinking alone in my bedroom
