Kickstart my educational course package:
Code-Switching for Coders
This 50 year education program will encompass a 20 year beginner segment, where I will try very hard to teach programmers and developers that most of the world aren’t, in fact, programmers and developers.
In the advanced courses (30 years of me beating my head against a wall) programmers and developers will maybe eventually learn to make tech that is actually usable outside their walled garden.
Fact about me:
When I say I love a show that doesn’t mean I want a suggestion of a show “that is the same.”
I saw ads for Killing Eve. I keep getting told it’s “just like” Hannibal.
I loved Hannibal. I don’t want it again. I want something new, exciting, and different.
Maybe this is why I’m bad at multiple series in the same universe.
Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.
"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."
In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.
This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now. https://kar.kent.ac.uk/62639/1/Double%20empathy%20problem.pdf
I’m not going to rag on any of it more than I just did cos I know folks love it, and that’s fine!
There’s just a lot that puts me off and I try to maintain a balance between giving things a fair shake, quitting while I’m ahead, and making sure I don’t hate-watch things. It’s delicate and I don’t always succeed.

The only thing missing from @tootapp is the ability to search & block instances.
The only thing that needs improving is making it so the person who boosted a Toot isn’t included in a reply to the OP.
Otherwise this app is perfect.

And if you want not-egg-based noodles you get sobe.
Which are great! But not in ramen.
food question for German residents (boosts plz!) Show more
my spouse and I are thinking of planning a trip to Germany for our 10 year anniversary next year, but she has Celiac -- are gluten free options common in Germany? even here, it's hit-and-miss, and whenever we go someone we worry about whether she'll have safe things to eat
Ah, but I got off several cutting remarks, which no doubt did serious damage to their egos.

Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
