So I have this short little "cultural guide for Fediverse newcomers"
A big point it makes is that, largely, behavior within a social network is determined by the behavior people bring with them from their other networks.
A lot of folk on the Fediverse come here from Twitter, and import their behavior from Twitter, and then wonder why the Fediverse doesn't work any different than Twitter.
Cause y'all act like it's Twitter. That simple. Act different. You can.
“The rise of "fast fashion" is thus creating a bleak scenario: The tide of secondhand clothes keeps growing even as the markets to reuse them are disappearing. From an environmental standpoint, that's a big problem. Already, the textile industry accounts for more greenhouse-gas emissions than all international flights and maritime shipping combined; as recycling markets break down, its contribution could soar.” https://getpocket.com/explore/item/no-one-wants-your-used-clothes-anymore
From the Minnesota Historical Society. Circa 1875.
Transcription: “Poems are taught as though the poet has put a secret key in his words and it is the reader’s job to find it. Poems are not mystery novels. Instead we should go closer and closer to the work. Learn to recall images and lines precisely as the writer said them. Don’t step away from their warmth and fire to talk “about” them. Stay close to them. That’s how you’ll learn to write.”
