⥂ ~moon/aesthetics@faunWould it make sense if I described the aesthetic as Steam-esque. Like if Steam had massively expanded its social functionality and made it good, or if Valve had made a social network.
⥂ ~moon/feature-requests@faunIt traces back to a simple RNG that now erroneously returns a negative number.I'll have to change the RNG, then. I guess that means we'll never get to return to the place that used to be there.
⥂ ~moon/feedback@faunAnd then I start thinking about the ownership dynamics of land, and all the additional friction it imposes on restructuring and reorganizing, and... I don't think spacial modes of organization are generally desirable. Euclidean space is constraining. In digital spaces, moving people around to improve propinquity can be made cheaper or free, so, many of the issues of space can be cured, but...We're drawn to these things because we want to be able to use our spacial memories to remember where everything is and how it relates to each other... but that's a form of human memory that's difficult to update as situations change. There is an essential truth to social relations like conceptual relevance, conflict relations, or overlaps in usership, but in contrast, there can be no essential unchanging truth to a spacial mapping. A spacial mapping is arbitrary, many are possible, and the best one for the given moment changes, but despite this, the spacial mapping will be hard to update in light of that.
