I'm considering retiring this logic.camp instance (for many reasons, may write about it), but am not sure where I should create a new fediverse-facing personal account. I'm not familiar with the wider fediverse (single-person instances makes this hard).

I'd like to be a part of a community with aligned values (anti-racist, queer-centric, politically left, into art/weird shit) with solid moderation but large enough to feel ok posting things for fediverse. local-only posting a plus.

any tips?

I love the phrase data integrity, pretending that interesting data could ever be anything but a shitshow

physicians, folks from the Coalition on Homelessness, local faith groups, Do No Harm Coalition, and more are staging a die in right now in front of SF mayor London Breed's house (on my block!)

tune into the livestream now to hear speakers talking about the need to move folks off the streets and into the thousands of empty hotel rooms—a move that supervisors have approved and Breed has refused: instagram.com/coalitiononhomel

it's pretty shocking to me how bad data is at the court level in the US—total mess

clerks quickly entering in data with little or no validation, shortcodes vary by clerk, sometimes misheard from the court room; often times data has gone through multiple messy migrations to new systems; can't connect that data concretely to a person (needs fingerprints, which often aren't taken); etc.

my view on this is watching legal aid try to make sense of it for record clearance eligibility. it's a problem!

I don't have first-hand stories on-hand about the role of the post office in Alaska, though I'd love to read them! I did find this blog post that explains some of the ways USPS supports rural Alaskan communities: blog.evankalish.com/2017/02/th

I also found this USPS report on the Alaska ByPass from 2011 interesting (screenshots attached). not surprisingly, found it was benefiting private interests on the backs of USPS.

it's inaccessible for much of the year—surrounded by sea ice or, when it's melted, the island is too short for an airplane runway.

...but USPS delivers there. not daily, which is the problem we were discussing because benefits enrollment often relies on mailed letters (which is fucked). but consistently

for USPS, last night I thought about how when we were talking to caseworkers that worked on tribal TANF in Alaska they told us if we wanted to understand connectivity issues to go to Little Diomede, a tiny island between Russia and the mainland.
