a couple formulations i saw recently and liked:

- “hi dear class:” as a message opening. in my experience, course messages often omit greetings entirely.
- “merry DOB” as a birthday message.

linkedin should be a social networking site for hypertext enthusiasts

just skimmed little bits of this and don’t really understand the methodology but wow figure 2 is wild

plastic, questionable marketing 

someone sent me a mailer that has "eco > LITE" prominently printed on it... but it has a plastic bubble liner and gives no indication that the paper exterior is recycled or that any of it is recyclable or biodegradable

feels very capitalism when map apps are like enter your home location and your work location (the only two places you'll ever go)

Every time I have mentioned the excellent social reading network @bookwyrm, people have replied or messaged asking if there is a film & TV version. I'm not exaggerating, it is every single time, and different people each time.

If there are any developers out there looking for Fediverse ideas, please do a film & TV version of BookWyrm! (More info about BookWyrm here by the way: joinbookwyrm.com)

Film data is (I think) available freely from Wikidata, so that side shouldn't be an issue?

There is demand for a federated film review site, its users are just waiting for it to come into existence.

"If you build it, they will come" :blobcheer:

end-of-class feelings 

i feel like the end of a school term is often portrayed as jubilant but there’s also something sad and scary about seeing your routines come to a sudden halt

negative, software 

the Piazza app is so bad
