The best thing I've heard on the radio in a while is Lin-Manuel Miranda and a bunch of other Broadway people in 21 Chump Street, a story of undercover police posing as high school kids to find drug dealers. You can watch just this at m.youtube.com/watch?v=ELBGa6-u, or the cast album and the whole show are available at thisamericanlife.org.

Not Very Social

This is a "general purpose" Mastodon instance, no specific theme. I created it because I'm sick of being a product for Corporate Surveillance and Big Data, sick of the hate filled cesspools and algorithm driven engagement factories that pass for social media. I want my internet back! It seems like a decentralized, open source, federated platform like Mastodon has possibilities, and as I've been a network admin for 35 years, I thought I might as well run an instance.
