Hello World.

Toot count no longer zero, social media accounts no longer zero and I have somewhere to listen and talk during the lockdown.

I’m John, my 8 year old Jowan is joining in and learning. I said I’d find a place where he could get the answers I don’t know.

I hope that one of the lessons we take away from this crisis is the utter destruction wrought by commuting.

What if working in the same physical place was saved for rare occasions?

What if we better integrated our home and work lives without the need to be elsewhere.

What if we didn't have to work during the same hours if we're in the same city or timezone?

What if we spent our time socializing, working; at home, in cafes, bars, restaurants, libraries, close to home?

What if we stopped building edifices of glass, concrete, and steel and instead grew communities?

You already know the answer.

Just walked by Johnny Doughnuts in San Rafael and tried to open the door at 2:10pm (they close 2pm).

Kept on walking with my two kiddos and then their staff came running after us to give us these doughnuts for free :-)

Every night feels like Thursday and every morning feels like Monday

Just experienced the 8 o’clock Howl for the first time - Cool stuff! Is that just a Marin thing or spread wider?

Now that everyone has to work via Skype/Zoom, I propose a new term “Cooperative Video”

Or CoVid for short.

I wanted to welcome Harry Chen PhD to #QOTO his account is @HarryChenPhD

He lives in China, and from what I can tell is currently living in Wuhan, the epicenter of the #coronavirus where he posts videos updating us all on the situation. He labels himself as a "renegade journalist".

He was recently banned from twitter because, well, China doesnt really like renegades or journalists. So we are proud to act as a platform to help him host his videos and get the word out on how things develop. Consider following him.

You can read a bit about how twitter oppressed his freedom of speech and what ultimately brought him to the fediverse at these two links:

@dansup Latest features on look great!

Any chance that S3 support is added soon? I’d like to contribute by running an instance but shy away from hard to manage and costly block storage.
