Re: %ZMGDaIUfz

Not having worked with a group of teens before, I worry that some may become bored or even disruptive. I’m not sure how many students might be present. I assume that many of the students will have mobile devices and may be more interested in chatting with friends, playing games and watching videos than participating in discussions.

If you can find a way to make them feel like they're really a part of the group, that may help keep them engaged. Your idea to have them give presentations is helpful in that regard. One of the professors where I work (art department at a university) has his students share a video they like for the first assignment. It doesn't matter what it is, just that they like it and can talk about why they like it. He said it makes them feel like things they like can be art, even if it's a silly TikTok video (and he added that kids on TikTok may not realize it, but some of the really good ones have absorbed a lot of filmmaking techniques from watching movies, which is useful for discussions). So maybe have them present on something they like that's related to computers somehow (keep it as broad or vague as you like to allow for interpretation of the assignment), and ask them questions, and let them ask questions. I think they'll want to feel like their ideas/likes/feelings are valid. I think having them figure out group projects on their own (so they can work on stuff they like/with people they like) would help engage them as well.

As far as wanting to talk and do non-the stuff you're trying to share part of it goes, my attitude might be to let them do it as long as they're not being disruptive. You can't really know what they're going through in school or at home, or even went through that day. They might just want a place to feel safe and hang out for a little while. At one point I was tutoring convicts who were about to be released so they could get their GEDs before they had to try to find work. Even though that was an important thing for them, the person in charge of the facility told me that some nights they'd just want someone to talk to, and if that was the case, to be that person. (I'm obviously not saying these kids are convicts, but I thought that the advice to go with the flow in that setting was helpful.)

Aside from that, most of the teaching stuff I've done with teens has been through schools or libraries, so they either were there voluntarily for a one-off event, or their teachers were there to pounce on them if they acted up. But one of the first times I went into a school to talk about writing, it was a really small class, and the kids were super tuned-in and had a lot of questions, and I had a really good time with them. When I left, their teacher walked me out, and said she'd never seen them so interested and attentive. It turns out that was the class for kids with behavior problems, but because I just sat right down with them, started talking, and let them ask questions when they had them, it was an exciting and novel experience.

Hi everyone! I'm sorry for the minimal presence so far on #SSB, but I'm just getting my bearings.

I'm in my 40s; I was formerly a technology entrepreneur but now I've retired and I'm instead mostly a middle school robotics and technology teacher. I teach unconventional classes not typically offered to teens and tweens: computer architecture, microprocessor design, deep learning, spacecraft systems engineering, etc.

I grew up on the early 90s internet, enjoying the pseudo-decentralization and eclectic nature of Usenet and IRC, and I wax nostalgic for when we all saw such infinite possibility for the social systems and ideas that would spring from a world connected by technology.

I know about distributed systems and networks and high performance systems. I'm in the progress of #ssb-learning and hope that this is a place I grow to feel comfortable and ultimately contribute to #ssb-dev. I am a skeptic, so it will take some time to convince myself that this all is "real", but so far I see some evidence of that renegade spirit here.

Of course, I have big technical concerns. Big adoption model and onboarding concerns, too, based on my experience so far. But I'm hoping that it's all tractable. It's certainly interesting, if nothing else!

Welcome to the scuttleverse @quin!

I also started with spaghetti when I stopped eating meat. Check out #vegan-junkfood and #madefromscratch channels for more recipes. Can I suggest getting an electric pressure cooker (Instapots are nice)? They make making beans, pulses and soups super low effort. Just throw in the cut up ingredients, add water, set the timer and come back when the pressure valve has released itself. Also, don't shy away from nuts and nut butters...they are full of healthy oils and protein.

As far as philosophy goes, have you read any Ivan Illich? Despite his roots in theology, I find his arguments about humanity and the monopolies that technology places on it exceedingly interesting. Specially the book, Tools for Conviviality.

The Listening Society by Hanzi Freinacht, Sand Talk by Tyson Yunkaporta, and David Graeber's new book The Dawn of Everything have been inspiring reads that a few of us here are enjoying.

...anyways, welcome.

@enkiv2
Re: %i3kiyfksK

There's discourse over whether or not it makes sense to continue following pubs (and when).

Pubs act more or less just like normal users -- which is to say that they follow people, and are followed, and transmit posts from the users they follow to the users that follow them. They are online 24/7, and some users are not, but a lot of users... are. The problem with pubs is that most pubs are open -- they will follow anybody who requests it -- and so the only way to have posts on your timeline that aren't from friends or friends-of-friends is to follow a pub. This is very useful for onboarding, but opens up the door to trolls and griefers showing up unbidden.

A lot of first-gen users recommend following a pub until you develop a robust network of people you're following, and then unfollow those pubs. There are enough users who keep sbotd running in the background all the time (and the graph is densely connected enough) that you're generally not going to miss messages that way (though maybe, in borderline cases, they might arrive a bit late).

I do not do this. I keep my ssb client open all the time, and I follow dozens of pubs. But, I don't vibe much with the "less content but of higher quality" part of the SSB experience and my main complaint about it is that my newsfeed moves pretty slow, so that's sort of why. (I also follow eight thousand people on twitter but find that too slow-moving, so I guess I'm abnormal.) Anyway, if you're like me, you can do that too.

@epk
Re: %YbaL2G44+

Ooh, I may have to check this out.

I don't remember exactly how I learned about SSB (I assume I was led to it via my never ending self-hosting rabbithole somehow), but I only read How To Do Nothing after I was already here and it would get mentioned as what led people to SSB. And once I read it, I realized I already knew about Jenny Odell to a degree, because I keep a bookmarks folder called "kindred spirits" for sites I come across that are about stuff I wish I thought of, or things that are on my wavelength. With her, I had stumbled across a site about her project where she cataloged stuff that wound up in the San Francisco dump.

Then I read it, and now I'm actually reading it again, since I'm back to commuting via train, which has reading time built in (partly because the wifi on train is crap, because the cellular signal through about half the route is crap). She also inspired me to get more into birding at the start of the pandemic, but that has come and gone in waves. (And I have to give some credit to my former therapist, who was an avid birder and used to answer all my bird questions long before the pandemic gave me plenty of time to look out the window and wander around thinking about birds.)

Sometimes it's just about planting your own seeds or doing a bit of a dive into the #'s to see if any of your interests may have popped up from others. People are also generally comfortable jumping back into a topic or post that you may want to revive or reply to, even though it is months (or years) old which is refreshing from some other places where it's a battle that the more recent topic must prevail.

Don't sweat it. Have fun. See you out there.

Re: %k5EFr/urJ

How did I miss the part about you learning about SSB in a class? What class is it? That's very cool.

At one point, my entire website was Flash, though a friend did most of it for me. I took an Actionscript class in like 2015 that is maybe more or less obsolete (though Adobe Animator, or whatever they call it now, still uses a lot of the sam concepts).

Re: %bSZLHrjc2

I do remember it! It was Circus Circus, and I was a little resistant to going there because that's the name of a casino in the US, and that irritated me. But the food in general was good, and the cake was great. There were a lot of interesting little shops in the area, and I think we had stopped to walk around, and then got lunch since we knew we would be lingering at the airport for a while and didn't want to be hangry.

We didn't get to spend too much time in Auckland, as it was the last part of our visit (back in 2019), but we did get to check out this view. (I also had the best piece of chocolate cake of the whole trip there, just an hour or so before had to leave for the airport.)

@stevelord

I've wanted to check out SSB for a while and finally decided to take a week off the web and explore alternatives instead. Work means I can't be completely off the web, but outside of it I'm trying to actively avoid using it.

This means I'm spending lots of time one SSB, #Gemini and #Gopher right now. I'm using Patchwork which I've found really nice and GemiNaut which is also pretty good for Windows 10. I haven't got these set up on other boxes.

My main computer is a Commodore #Amiga 4000 but I also use #OpenBSD, #Linux and #MacOS too on more modern kit. I'm an amateur radio enthusiast with an interest in #shortwave dxing, #satcom, resilient infrastructureless networks like #meshtastic and more. I write https://thedorkweb.substack.com/ on the web, but I'm looking at republishing on less intensive platforms to provide a lower impact access method of reading my stuff.

I also like repairing old tech and designing electronics which is like doing magic with crystals and poisoned sand. Nice to meet you all!

If you like doing things like writing offline, logging in to upload new stuff, download new stuff, and then diconnecting, SSB may be a good fit. (But you can also leave it on all day if you want to get really wild!)

Re: %bPa0kgHCp

If you follow channels that interest you, it's a pretty good way to find fellow butts who pick up what you put down, if you dig what I mean.

If you're on Patchwork, these are the things that look like hashtags in the top left.

If you're not on Patchwork, I'm not entirely sure where they are, as most of my butt activity is Patchwork-based, though I do check in on Manyverse when I'm not on my laptop.
