Quote from: Florestan on November 04, 2022, 09:44:09 AM Truth is, I had been a GMGer long before I met her --- and ever since I met (and one year later married) her she has been heroically putting up with my GMG dependence. As a Romanian saying goes, "A better wife I cannot find, a worse one I do not need."
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on November 04, 2022, 09:50:23 AM How long has the GMG forum been around for?PD
Quote from: Spotted Horses on November 04, 2022, 09:02:31 AMElon Musk says Twitter has had 'massive' revenue drop as advertisers pause spendinghttps://www.cnbc.com/2022/11/04/elon-musk-says-twitter-has-had-massive-revenue-drop.htmlMusk blamed the reluctance of advertisers, such as General Mills, to use the platform on "activists" and characterized it as an "attack on the first amendment."Mr Musk needs a civics lesson, I think, since the first amendment prevents the government from restricting free speech. It doesn't compel individuals or private companies to publish or support your free speech by patronizing your business.
Quote from: Florestan on November 04, 2022, 09:25:55 AMThe only social media I've ever used is GMG --- which is bad enough.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on November 04, 2022, 02:46:24 PMThe color scheme at the time: orange and purple with some lovely non-accenting trim, was wonderfully hideous.
Quote from: Spotted Horses on November 04, 2022, 09:13:08 AMMastodon seems to have a tiny user base. How did you pick your server?
Quote from: Brewski on November 04, 2022, 09:30:19 AMI'd be interested in this, too. Took a brief look at Mastodon, and not quite grasping how it works. -Bruce
Quote from: geralmar on November 04, 2022, 07:00:08 PMSomehow Musk abruptly firing 3,700 employees-- half Twitter's workforce-- upsets no one but those fired.
Quote from: Todd on November 04, 2022, 10:03:47 AMI shan't shed a tear for Musk. Despite the possibility that he takes a massive personal loss on Twitter, he's still worth north of a couple hundred billion dollars, and some people have made bold predictions that he could become the first trillionaire. He'll be OK, whether Twitter survives or not.
Quote from: Brewski on November 03, 2022, 08:32:13 AMSocial media is great (like GMG, for instance), but I also strongly believe in stepping away from the computer and taking a walk, or cooking something delicious, or going to a concert, or having dinner with friends. (Last Sunday, a three-hour Moroccan lunch was divine, with no one pulling out their phones.)-Bruce

Quote from: Brian on November 04, 2022, 11:07:47 AMGMG is the nicest, friendliest "social media" place I've ever known.
Quote from: 71 dB on November 05, 2022, 04:53:07 AMThe official Tangerine Dream forum is by far the nicest place I have experienced. Ironically that place is nowadays very dead with almost no activity (no posts after August 12).
Quote from: Todd on November 05, 2022, 04:11:49 AMAnd if Twitter disappears due to Musk's mismanagement, and if Facebook shrinks and ends up catering to old people exclusively as it sheds younger users, and if TikTok is shut out of the US market because of federal action, other social media entities will replace them. Or not.

Quote from: Alex Heath and Mia SatoAccording to emails sent to laid off employees and an internal FAQ obtained by The Verge, those impacted will continue to be paid and receive benefits until dates that appear to match the length of the mass layoff notice required by US federal and state law. If they sign a "Release of All Claims" document and separation agreement, all US employees will then receive one month of base pay as severance that is taxed at the higher supplemental income rate.
Quote from: Brian on November 05, 2022, 08:40:43 AMApparently California law requires a 60 day notice for a mass layoff, so the 3,700 employees are entitled to 60 days' pay and health benefit coverage.
