At this festive season of the year, I should be thinking about what kind of cookies to make next. Instead, I’ve been watching Elon Musk destroy Twitter in real time. I joined Twitter in 2012 with my legal name account, and even earlier with a private one; it sucks being driven off a real digital home by a redpilled billionaire who, to add insult to injury, isn’t even a good poster.
But so it goes, until and unless we raise the top marginal tax rate to 70% again, anyway. I’ve joined Mastodon, and I’m now @firstname.lastname@example.org. Eventually I’ll get around to deactivating my Twitter, and installing the social media widget for this site, but I figured I’d announce it here right away.
I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be a panelist at CasaCon 2022 next Friday, December 16! My talk will be on “Early Anime and Manga Fandom in the United States” at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern (yes, I went with the longer title in the official schedule but clearly the shorter one is better).
