Friend Stan passed away this morning. This was his day to publish on FMag, and we had one article to go up of his. One more for next week also. Then his column goes quiet.

Family note: DD and her fiancé had started premarital counseling with Stan. They were going to ask him to perform the wedding ceremony.

This entry is from the dictionary of the 1947 Dickson Bible, my grandmother’s copy, and it reminded me of a friend:

Bee. Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey, would denote that bees were numerous (Ex. 3.8; Ezek. 27.7). They lived in rocks and woods (Ps. 81.16; 1 Sam. 24.25; Ezek. 27.17). Their activities are described (Deut. 1.44; Ps. 118.12; Isa. 7.18).

Twitter’s list feature allows you to assign feeds to specific groups. I have a friends list. On Saturday afternoon and night, this list is almost exclusively about sports. Do I need new friends?

My friends need to get interested in Hubzilla. Yet another reason: I’m ramping up my use of it.

  • Crazy levels of privacy, when needed. (I got posts you can’t see, only members of my private groups.)
  • Nomadic identity, so that you never need lose your stuff.
  • Distributed, so that you’re not captive to a walled-garden site, no fear of your channel getting blocked or deleted.
  • Federated, so you can join any Hubzilla site (or install your own) and still connect with people scattered around the net.
  • Fine-grained options for sharing posts, files, photos, videos.
  • No ads, not for profit, no data collection.

What’s not to like? You can even choose the hub you want to join.

The site is now set up to accept the registration of friends, if anybody wants to try it out. Don't yet consider this the final word, but it seems to be stable.
