Note from 5 January 2021

Today, I remembered linking to a "Letter from 2020" back in 2001. It had been written in 2000 by Mark Summerfield.

It is now gone 😥, but @waybackmachine has a copy! 😍

    Life Happens: Towards Community Support For Prioritizing Life Events And Mutual Care, Starting With The #IndieWeb

    When these things happen, as a community, I feel we should respond with kindness, support, and understanding when someone steps back from community participation or projects. We should not shame or guilt them in any way, and ideally act in such a way that welcomes their return whenever they are able to do so.

    The Prodigal Techbro

    Allowing people who share responsibility for our tech dystopia to keep control of the narrative means we never get to the bottom of how and why we got here, and we artificially narrow the possibilities for where we go next.
