Sometimes that’s still useful. Something like social cauterization of a wound. But it has a cost that increases with inter-group polarization.

The sort of tragedy in this is that direct persuasion attempt tend to backfire, even when we’ll-meaning. Most of what gets integrated is just the bits of easily-accessible identity cues.

Every time I hear someone talk about the various ways they want to reshape social media to make it more amenable to cyborgs or something, I wonder what exactly they think *social* media is?

Twitter is an expressive medium that allows you to register your opinions, if you choose to do so. There is very little direct persuasion. It’s ambient signal integration all the way down.

I seriously predict we're going to see two degrees of post-pandemic horny: Tinder servers won't work for a solid week due to overload. Then millions of people will be so sick of staring at screens and Zoom dates that every bar, club, and punk show will be an utter bacchanalian.

Someday I will tell you the tale of the time some random company in Queens accused me of trying to buy SEVEN Maseratis (it makes no sense…like, I wish it did), and I low-key accepted Fight-Club-esque fugues as the reasoning bc my mindbrain couldn't take it!
