"Hari’s book [Stolen Focus] opened my eyes to the way #smartphones are wrecking our ability to focus. If every idle moment of our day gets occupied by the smartphone’s content feeds, #socialmedia tidbits, and other news pulling us in, what time do we have for personal thought? For reflection and analysis? For our own directed attention? Very little."

Hey Fedi, do you know if there is a federated (perhaps even #ActivityPub-powered) cooking recipe hosting service? If not, let's 👏 make 👏 this 👏 happen!

I hate modern recipe websites. All of them are full with ads and tracking. The leading recipe hosting in my country loads over 30 different trackers, and that's excluding the ads!

My PR just got merged into master. (so prooooud!)
