There is a marked difference between the people living for now versus the people living for eternity.

Also, is there a way to let a Guest user to see the Projects tab in Talk? In particular to see and ideally to edit shared documents. Most of the people I'm dealing with don't have NextCloud accounts.

I had an account from way back when you chose the username when you sign up, so I knew that one. So from another instance I shared a file to it hoping the federated ID would show up in the activity. But what showed up was:

emailuser@email.domain@https://nextcloud.host

But trying to use that to refer to that account doesn't actually work, e.g. I can't invite that user to a Talk.

If I ask someone what their federated ID is on their instance, how would they find that answer?

"hey why don't we use jitsi for this"

"hmmm, zoom is easier though"

"jitsi is actually a lot easier, you don't need a client and it's technically better in every way than zoom"

"hmm but, zoom..."

We're sorry, Zoom is becoming a bit of a punching bag - but, like Facebook, they choose their own business practices and we all can disagree with those questionable choices. So do SpaceX and NASA... They have banned the use of Zoom.

mastadon relationships are weird. I don't really feel like I'm good friends with anyone I've met here, but we're definitely more than acquaintances. It reminds me of that guy in group therapy who always laughed at my morbid jokes and had good things to say and maybe they'd be cool to hangout with but I don't do anything about it because I don't want to be weird. you're all that guy

@fribbledom Even though the Ministry of Defense said a few days earlier to stop using Zoom, he did it anyway

Congress and President Trump put taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars to United Airlines in exchange for keeping their work force intact at least through September 30.

Immediately after the bill was signed, United announced upcoming layoffs—to begin after September 30. https://twitter.com/cnbcnow/status/1243624566125182977

I'm going to try and make it a habit to actually write a blog post when I learn something, or try something new. I have at least half a dozen ideas for articles for things I could have written about over the last year or so.

At any rate, Jitsi Rocks
