Since there is a high number of neo nazi peertube instances, lostpod.space and exode.me won't continue following instances automatically until something is one to avoid that. Perhaps I will provide a joinpeertube alternative

Cat Whisperers, ASD, transness 

So the University of Guelph did a study about reading cats' facial expressions, and it turns out: I'm a "cat whisperer" (no surprise there).

https://news.uoguelph.ca/2019/12/cats-faces-hard-to-read-except-for-cat-whisperers-u-of-g-research-finds/

What I find interesting: I'm on the Autism spectrum. I was assigned male at birth. Yet, contrary to the expectations of stereotypes of either demographic, I'm *really good* at reading facial expressions.

Makes me wonder if there's an intersection with being trans here...

I would like to share with you a poem generated by the GPT-2 language model when given the first verse of Shel Silverstein's "Where the Sidewalk Ends" as input:

I am a little bird,
I am a little winged one,
I sit on a little twig of a tree,
And I dream of little towns on faraway

Work related, yep this is a suit story 

we went to primark to find a full attire for one of my colleague, because he wanted some help.

We went me and him, at lunch time so we caugt some noodles to have in the office.

He got a jacket, trousers, waistcoat, hat and tie.
Waistcoat is too big, but I guess it doesn't matter as much to him.

Sometime I wish we were not working in support so we could more of that kind of stuff together.

My partner just carressed/massaged my head.

10/10 would recommend head pat

dream, activism 2/2 

Tasks could be marked as high priority, which would send a notification to every team member's phone. Tasks could also be marked as "continuous"; they can't be marked "completed," they're just background tasks that anybody could pick up if they don't have anything else.

I have to assume the app was gamified, because especially that "continuous task" idea was inspired by that Minecraft quest book mod, but gamifying it would probably also ruin the point.

dream, activism 1/2 

There was an app about organizing local activist communities. It was separated into local chapters, and once you joined one, you were encouraged to join a specialist "team." The only team I could remember was the one I joined, "tech support," though I imagine there were others like "organizing" and "outreach." Then, anybody in the chapter could create tasks to assign to each team, or see a list of members to reach out directly.

University of Cambridge (UK) has a few things to say about DoH too:

www.dns.cam.ac.uk/news/2019-09…

> Part of the problem is that Firefox is removing a security mechanism without providing a replacement. Network providers and enterprises block malware and phishing on their DNS servers, and home users use software like Pi-Hole or custom hosts files to block malware and ads. Firefox's DoH implementation will stop these blocks from working.

> Firefox is using choice of software as implied consent to change the DNS configuration and bypass existing DNS-related security mechanisms.

> More awkwardly, it isn't reasonable to expect the vast majority of people to make an informed choice about their DNS configuration or give meaningful consent to any changes.
