My latest "the best website evar" is http://www.openculture.com/faq: "high-quality cultural & educational media for the worldwide lifelong learning community."
What Makes John Bonham Such a Good Drummer? A technical explanation what makes Led's Zeppelin's John Bonham such a great drummer. Do *you* have a favorite drummer (besides David Grohl)? I didn't now I do. And I can sound smart explaining why. Win-win.

Fun mastodon client on my desktop: https://jfm.carcosa.net/blog/computing/brutaldon/
Usually I use my phone for mastodon, the desktop client is rather heavy, and I'm not a fan. But brutaldon is a great alternative! It's fast, minimal, and you can make it look like an old terminal. Installation (on Linux) is 5 minutes. It's python and django.

"The proof of the pudding is in the eating", which is to say, time and actions will tell. But that's the best news re: lk(ml) culture I've seen.

Retoot to write a list together!
For the #OpenDesignCourse for refugees, starting on Monday.
@tom79 just noticed the "who to follow" button in the sidebar, great feature (did I just miss it before?)!
PS If it is a pun on Twitter, then ok, but it should be "whom to follow"
Despite this terribly missed "m", _astalab is a great app ☺
Hey, here's a little Python script I wrote! https://alexschroeder.ch/cgit/mastodon-blocker/about/
