😩 Disappointed but not surprised that the CDC dropped their 5-day isolation guidance for COVID infections. Their decision to reduce it from 10 days to 5 a couple years ago wasn’t based in science and neither is this. Onward marches the destruction of public health for the sake of a temporary buck.

This is my Leap Day post. There are many like it, but— hah, no I can’t finish that.

I did wonder if I had ever posted on Leap Day. Apparently only a few, back in 2016:

There’s this ai.txt format. I don’t love another something.txt file, but it is nice that their API respects it, allowing people to opt-out content that may have been trained on previously.

Just saw a bumper sticker: “please let me merge before I cry” 😂

I started reading Community care & relationship building combats burnout in political movements. Oof, it’s hitting hard, in a good way.

Strong relationships are the molecules that make up strong communities and strong communities are free. That should be our guiding light. Interdependence. To lay the soil for collective liberation, we need to build liberating relationships today where we enact and practice the values of the world we are building. The more we depend on each other for survival, the less we depend on the state and the more ungovernable we become. This is the fight. In the process of building life-sustaining relationships, we will dismantle systems, not the other way around.

Thanks for the heads up. I think m.b. is dropping my timezone. I filed an issue: https://github.com/microdotblog/issues/issues/254

👋 I’m at gregorlove.com and this reply is also coming from there!

I was quite pleased to learn that a local theater has masks-required matinees! I’m planning to go see Clyde’s at the Moxie Theatre:

The jetty at the beach with the sun moments before it set. The sky is full of patchy clouds.
A volleyball net on the beach with some palm trees behind it and the same patchy clouds in the sky. The clouds have pink highlights from reflecting the sunlight minutes after the sunset.

Sunset at Mission Beach. San Diego is alright.

Hi Jean! It's nice to be back. I missed the conversation in this good corner of the web.

I went for a day the first or second year they had it. Glad to see they’re still going. I was slightly tempted to go last year when they announced Joy Electric.

Hello again, micro.blog! I dropped off here in 2020 due to technical issues apparently, but I think I’m back?

Short intro: gRegor, he/him, San Diego, try to make people laugh (or groan from puns), software developer, IndieWeb enthusiast, and COVID cautious.

Digging Paramore’s cover of “Burning Down the House” and looking forward to the other covers on the upcoming Stop Making Sense tribute album.
