Fortune was not on our side on the night of 29 January, 1945.

Overwhelmed by numbers and by deceit of the nazists and fascists,

we of the 7th Garibaldi Command, fighting, here died.

But we tell you, comrades, that even stronger than regret for the life fleeting from us

was in us the cognizance of dying for your freedom.”

78 years later, remembering twelve partigiani fighting and dying for mine and my country’s freedom. More (in Italian)

Hey Micro.blog community, how about we introduce a tagmoji that indicates reshared content? When looking at people’s feeds I’m always left wondering if those links are original pieces or reshared pieces.

It’s been some time I’ve wanted to do a /now page but I’m always quenched by the reminder that once I do it it needs to be updated regularly. A sort of “template” for the page would be helpful, both in publishing it and in updating it afterwards. Is there any good one?

No setup. Slice of daily hustle, in this case slice of a working desk. 🖋️

I remembered I signed up for omg.lol when I got the reminder for subscription end. It looked cool & fun, but unfortunately I had no use for it. And the concept’s weird imo because it scatters my content over several servers and sites I don’t own. Like Instagram, pretty much.

Attention as a commodity or attention as a gift?

Why the one, or why the other? Or can my question be reframed entirely? Hit me with your words.

(a question which I equate to Instagram vs Micro.blog and other decentralized online networks)

So after an internet vote organized by PolyamProud and votes from 30k consensually non monogamous people, a new flag for the polyamorous movement was selected. Here it is, I like it ☺️ 🏳️‍🌈 and → a link to the flag download page.

If I have to give an opinion on Wednesday… it looks like it makes a hero out of her. Characters I like are those full of humanity, not so much those who excel at everything they try.

  • fencer
  • highly acrobatic
  • fighter
  • super smart
  • visions that solve the season’s case

Meh 💔📺

I’ve been told that I might be particularly susceptible to abuse by a street psychologist that then proceeded to subject me to light psychological abuse. I think that’s hilarious. 🧠

How does love work in non-me people, exactly? I have the very limiting circumstance in which I only know how it works for me.

Today I was wondering about some of my relationships, so I started writing. And I write and write and there comes a 3 A4 pages piece. Then I proof read it. And I realize that the answer’s already in there. I wrote it… And still I don’t realize it.

One thing I’ll miss about Twitter are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s honest takedowns of all the many hypocritical GOPers that scheme to get votes by fanning the bigoted and discriminative cultural war going on over there.

As a non-American myself I absolutely didn’t know D.L. Hughley however he really seems to be a person that speaks truth to power! The title of this video is a comment on the Biden presidency… that actually is one of the least interesting things he said.

I think that deleting Twitter will be a great great first step in deleting all my centralized social accounts. This whole mess is just the nudge I had never realized I needed. 😀

About the Twitter acquisition deal: it’s clear now who Musk is and what politics he espouses (e.g. the recent “peace proposal” for Ukraine) - nevertheless Twitter board only cares that the proposed price is good and consents to acquisition. Good for users? Board doesn’t care.

It’s hard for me to write anything not-deadly-serious lately. Feels silly to not write about political situation in Italy (which is concerning) or war in Ukraine (heartbreaking) etc. I aim to write smth big~ish about those and then try to mentally-archive this horrible feeling.

I’m kinda in a weird headspace right now, but everything’s kinda ~ fine. Hopefully things will look up soon.

Facebook’s latest (production!) version of their AI chatbot spews fake news about American politics, @gruber reports. Many Facebook users will think that FB’s chatbot might have particular authority as it belongs to the platform itself.

404: responsibility not found.

So damn shocking that we can see the little silhouette of entire galaxies outside of our own on those space photographs. So shocking and inspiring.

Can we get a little closer? Like to see them better.

Does anyone ever end up completely randomly on a nice blog reading a cool take on one of your favorite tv shows (Sherlock) but the author doesn’t have any about page or any way to contact them, so you can’t reach out and tell them how cool their take was?

We all agree privacy is great. (And possibly, a fundamental human right.) But which specific topics are you only comfortable talking about on a privacy-respecting platform/medium?
