Pinned toot

I have automated cross-platform posting set up, so you'll occasionally see links to centralised commercial social media platforms in my toots. But this isn't just another channel for me: I'm active here, like it here, and if you interact with me here, I'll respond here.

Moreover, once the Fediverse has a bit more critical mass, I plan to "reverse the polarity" so that this is the point of origin for my cross-platform posts. But so far most of the people I want to tag in stuff aren't here yet. πŸ€”

* Import & highlight & handwrite over PDFs/text docs

Julian Assange and @Wikileaks have been central to a burgeoning and salutary era of forced transparency in which governments and corporations can no longer hide their bad actions, writes @nickgillespie.

Caught the Terry Gilliam movie playing for one night only. It definitely deserved commercial distribution! β€” watching The Man who killed Don Quixote at Regal Fairfax Towne Center 10 facebook.com/595990672/posts/1

My kids handed me something to read, then laughed when I moved it far enough away from my face to read it. 😑

I'm guessing that Joe Biden liked the Obama/Biden bromance memes better.
