Late mid-event survey!

Lol, I’m such a late person. Hah, I blame reading for like 10 hours straight now. Ok, here it goes.

  1. What are you reading right now? I’m on chapter 9 of Atlas Shrugged.
  2. How many books have you read so far? Lol just 1. I finished 1984 earlier. I’m glad I didn’t set a goal to read 3-4 books. I didn’t set a page goal either because I have no way of counting the pages I’ve read.
  3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? I’m looking forward to picking up right where I left off. If I finish before 24 hours are up, I don’t know what I’m going to do.
  4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? I live alone, I’ve had 0 interuptions, except of course when I interrupted myself to take breaks etc.
  5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? I think what surprises me is that reading for more than 3-4 hours makes me tired. I didn’t expect to have to deal with tiredness until later tonight.

“M” is for Mastodon and memes.

What’s Mastodon, you might ask. It’s a decentralized social network. This means there are many instances everywhere, Mastodon.xyz is just one of them. There are certainly some fun ones out there, I signed up for Mastodon.technology Lol of course I haven’t signed up with all the instances yet, there are 700 something. It’s been fun though, to find and follow new people.
“M” is also for Memes, and a meme is simply something that spreads, almost like a virus. Back before image macros were called “memes,” bloggers used to use the term for things like Thursday13, and Friday 5. To me, they should still be defined as a “meme,” but some people put these kinds of things under the category of “linkups,” or “blog hops.” A blog hop can also be a meme, I suppose, but what they usually end up as are “link to one of your favorite posts,” or things like that
