You know when you look at someone's posts and you think 'What a dick', then you wonder if that's what people think of you when they look at your posts.

All of the Canary's articles are compiled from tweets...

Is that why it's called the Canary?

I think Mastodon is more social than other social media sites. I do like it here.

Does anyone know a self-publishing platform for writers that isn't Amazon?

I sometimes read or watch videos about the so-called crimes authors commit when writing, and I kinda feel like I commit most of them.

And I don't care.

But the thing is; it is hard taking seriously the opinions of a professed Harry Potter loving writing critic.

I mean, the Harry Potter books are at best average children's books. Why would I be interested in the opinions of an adult reader who loves books like that?

The films are better, but still average.

After all that's happened can we call him Bollocks Boris now?

I think the best practice for coders is to wipple the flangars.

Remember to have your door fitted with a lock that can be opened by law enforcement's skeleton key, in case they need to come in unannounced and rummage around through your stuff looking for terrorists. It's no problem, because all cops are good guys, and criminals would never get a cooy of the skeleton key, and privacy is passe anyway. What could possibly go wrong?

I had a maggot-filled wheelie bin.

Well, it wasn't full with maggots. It just had some at the bottom.

Probably normal.

Extinction Rebellion looks interesting. I think I'll keep an eye on them and see how they pan out.

"Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a socio-political movement with the stated aim of using civil disobedience and nonviolent resistance to compel government action on climate breakdown, biodiversity loss, and the risk of social and ecological collapse."

Did you know the UK government plans to make every failed Brexit deadline a national holiday, including the future failed attempt of October 31st?

I think Occupy London outlived its usefulness a long time ago. I think it's main achievement is to endorse anti-capitalism and unite anti-capitalist people.

Interestingly, it now seems to wholeheartedly support Corbyn. And while I approve of such support in the hope it will remove the fucking Tories from government, their support of the Labour Party is hardly anti-capitalist.

There are many left wing commentators online whose politics have shifted to the centre now Corbyn is here.

I've been following Occupy London on Facebook for some time and it was once a page that shared quite interesting and insightful articles. But recently it has become a page of weak memes and posts designed to get a rise out of chauvinists, racism deniers and Trump supporters.

I have now unliked the page.

I unlike everything in the end.

I get get bored.

The ad-verse really bores me. I will write a blog post about non-decentralised social media I think. (Not that I'm an expert on such things). But nuance is thing alien to the minds of most social media users. Everything is polarised on Twitter and Facebook so that any derogatory remark or joke is instantly interpreted as an endorsement of the right. I am left wing but the assumptions made by some of the people of the left show only how flawed their thinking is.

I've backed 35+ Kickstarters to the tune of well over $2,000 and I won't back another until they recognize their employees' attempts to unionize. Sorry, creators. Please put pressure on to do the right thing.
Kickstarter's CEO has confirmed that the company is anti-union and will remain so. They will continue to fight against unionization and stand by the firings. His mes…

It's the second day of grey skies and rain this autumn here and I already feel the winter in my soul. Slowly, the world starts drifting sideways and I feeling confused.

I've always found it strange people revealing their preferred pronouns on social media. Surely, you want people to talk to you, not about you.
