Literally 2 Cents: How to Do Nothing, Vol. 2

We put up our most recent episode this weekend, the second part to our series exploring “How to Do Nothing” by Jenny Odell. This week, we talked about context collapse… you know, how you’ll be scrolling Twitter and see several disparate events that have nothing to do with each other — or with you? Social media and other online content has taken a lot of the context out of how we interact with each other and with the public sphere at large, and it can sometimes be jarring (traumatizing even!). With the absolute glut of content out there, it can be hard to prioritize and even harder to parse.

Next on the list for us to talk about? Mastodon, Activity Pub, and federated content / the fediverse. Of course.
