Because I participated in the closed beta I get Beeper free for life. I’ve been using Beeper now for almost 3.5 years and I love it.

Surprisingly, no one reported this as being off-topic. Memes do not belong here. Locked and removed.

The ‘r’ word is considered a slur and is NOT nice…Please. be(e) nice at Beehaw. Thanks.

The media love to remind all of us of the so-called 1% but NEVER mention the 0.0001%. Roughly 400 Americans that have an unimaginable amount of wealth. Not Jeff Bezos, Not Elon Musk nor anyone that is publicly acknowledged.

Wealth Shown to Scale has shown all of us, for many years, the diseased dragons lying on mountains of gold. These are the ones that own and control almost everything that happens on Earth.

What can you tell me about Bluesky?
I just received my invite code today and took a quick look around the app. Like Mastodon I **do not** prefer microblogging platforms. And that's all I know about Bluesky. So, what can you tell me about this project?

Name-calling is NOT nice. Please, remember to be(e) nice at Beehaw.

We believe it is time to consider not just how online spaces can be governed efficiently and in service to corporate bottom lines, but how they can be governed fairly and legitimately. Giving communities more control over the spaces they participate in is a proven way to do just that.


This is a massive breakthrough that will benefit the entire planet. Great news!

I know how to unplug and do it intermittently year by year.

This is a very insightful and informed take. TBH, I did NOT do my due diligence of critical thinking before posting this article. I’ve succumbed to knee jerk reactions once again.

This is so sad…many impoverished human beings without access to proper nutrition nor the knowledge of it. So many things stacked against them. Please, consider making regular contributions to your local food banks.

The ‘R’ word is a slur. Please, don’t use it here. Take a three day vacation to think about it.

Universal Chat Application, Beeper, Will Be Available To Everyone (For Free) In A Matter Of Weeks.
I was on the beta testing team and have been using Beeper for a little over two years now. The convenience of having an application to house all of your chat networks is amazing.

Some unsolicited parenting advice
I am a parent (stay-at-home dad) of two boys (10 and 14 years old). Best advice that I can give is 'attachment parenting' and teaching/encouraging 'emotional intelligence'. Those two were the most recommended by the top child psychologists on Earth. Both boys have been in gifted and talented programs (without any parental pressure) for many years and are on track to receive full scholarships. In short, we have talked to them about talk and more talk...encourage them to talk about their feelings/emotions...if they feel ashamed about talking to their parents about something, then find someone (friend, family member, school counselor, etc) to talk about it. From infancy until around the age of four, we would read to them. We'd sit in a chair, place them on our lap, hold the book open right in front of them and read. As they grew older we explained that there is a direct relationship between reading comprehension skills (critical thinking) and the amount of money one could earn in a career. Basically, we asked them: Do you want this type of mid-sized house/property, two cars, time off of work, pets, etc? -> Read and understand what you are reading.

Lemmy mobile apps worth mentioning
