I stopped by to look up something or other, and much to my delight I find MeatballWiki
has been cleaned up and un- FishBowl
-ed. I've been thinking about a variety of vexing things lately, and have been wishing for a new Meatball community to hash them out with. Is there any interest in revitalizing things here?
I am mostly inactive on most social media. Mastodon is the exception:

I'd like to. I'm overwhelmed in life, but I think the digital world we're all in is chaos and not positive. Conversely, I'm enjoying the OpenAI bot and working on using it to accelerate collective knowledge generation at the CloudSoftwareAssociation? and AppBind?.

Some of the things on my mind lately:
- I am deeply concerned about TheAlgorithm - the constant grab for attention and "engagement", the creation and fortification of EchoChamber?'''s, and the way my mind seems to be rewired. I feel like I'm fighting myself to even sit down and read a book.
- OldIdeasForNewProblems? - Looking to the past can be a good way to highlight the assumptions and biases of the current age.
- SmallWeb?, IndieWeb?, and the FediVerse? - I am interested in all of these, but find that their strongest proponents hold them up as magic solutions to re-taking the Internet. Some critical engagement is needed.
- Thinking about how to counter the threat of a DigitalDarkAge? (InformationLoss).
More to add as I think about them. I just know that I miss an active and thriving MeatballWiki community, and I think we could really use the folks in this little corner of the net to get things simmering again.
