#Introductions Hi! Gonna introduce myself real quick. I'm a college student currently majoring in environmental science. I'm really interested in how to make cities better for both people and the environment, but who knows what I'll be doing when I graduate. For now though, I'm looking forward to seeing some cool solarpunk stuff.
A problem with the whole Thought Leader culture we got going on, like, fucken everywhere, is it makes people like me who don't specialize and like to learn everything feel like a shit.
Please add descriptions to your images.
There are visually impaired users floating about the federverse and they deserve descriptions.
A simple description of "airplane" or "cute Kitty" is sufficient. You can do more if you like, but at least add a succinct, basic description if possible.
happy tuesday folks i hope your week is treating you well so far.
pet some animals or lay in the sun today if you can
Hello masto! I ´m new around here but Id love to connect more with y’all!
Hi, I'm Luke. I'm a product designer for DoSomething.org, a non-profit that connects young people to social justice actions.
I'm a big computer culture fan. I read a lot of speculative fiction, poke around with code and play a lot of board, tabletop and video games. Aside from computers and sci-fi, I really like food culture, cooking and cats.
I try to be kind to everyone and not give in to cynical outlooks. Earnesty is cool! #introductions
Fediverse feature request - empathy Show more
There's an emotion on the #fediverse I want to express similarly to how we can with the star on #Mastodon. When someone shares a vulnerable and difficult moment or thought I want to say "I'm sorry" in the empathetic way. Spanish is better at this with "lo siento". Literally, "I feel it."
Some of my friends have started using 🖤, symbolizing a sort of gothic heart, like "yes, the world is fucked up sometimes and I'm here for you."

SPICY NUCLEAR TAKE (not really) Show more
@Elizafox Parking garages are fine because they're higher density parking, although emphasis needs to be placed on making areas walkable and accessible.
So often, people seem to use close parking as a substitute for accessibility, but close parking in high density areas harms walkability and accessibility IMO.
