💭 Jonah I tried writing something! jonahfoss.com/foll...
â™Ļī¸ Robert Blinov I like Subreply's minimalism.
💭 Jonah me too! out of curiosity are you the youngest person on subreply?
🏒 Lucian Marin You can bring back to life a thread from years ago.
💭 Jonah I was amazed by some of the accounts and their histories. It's so cool to see that subreply has been around for so long
👉 LÊo This is a question that a colleague asked me a couple years ago, and it just keeps coming back to me. If one becomes informed about the damage that our meat consumption is causing on the planet, does it become immoral for one to consume meat? Say, if you watch a couple documentaries on Netflix and continue consuming meat, does that make you a bad person? I don't really have an answer. I think about it every time I eat a burger.
💭 Jonah I think it's going to be much easier for me to eat less meat when I head off to college and I'm managing my own nutrition. I really want to try vegetarianism, pescatarianism, and veganism, intermittent fasting- I want to experiment and iterate and find what's best for me!
💭 Jonah Stick with your values. Good things come from consistency, and make sure that actions you take in your day-to day don't detract from both tangible and non-tangible parts of your value system. This works to minimize regret and feel better about the way you live.
💭 Jonah my most toxic trait is reformatting every doc I collaborate on
😃 Javier Some experience a culture shock in the dorms or the classroom. Expectations are high and unknown. Lectures may sound familiar or unfamiliar. If I had to go back I would take better care of my time management and clear, concise and attainable academic and personal goals. I would not be afraid to say no if comes down to do things that I clearly don't like.
💭 Jonah cutting down on obligations sounds good for sure. want to aggressively invest time in things I love and cut time on things I am iffy about. Want to make it either "hell yeah" or "no", to quote Derek Sivers
☝ Jean-David Moisan What are you going to study?
💭 Jonah social sciences. econ, business, communication. maybe education later on
💭 Jonah I'm starting college in a few months. Does anyone here have advice for anything?

Eric H. Most important part is to just show up to class & pay attention. No phone or browsing. Most exams will be straight forward if you're attentive. Finished college about 8 years ago and honestly found ratemyprofessor very helpful for picking good instructors.
Zero Edge Drop any class or professor (within 2 week cut off) that you think you will have a hard time passing.
đŸ’ģ Kenneth Jensen Don't be afraid to change your major. Join a club or two, and talk to your professors; they're people, too!
🏒 Lucian Marin There was a public IRC/Slack but I shut it down. In addition to Unfeeder and Subreply, there are the 3 macOS apps which you can download for free. I will constantly improve Subreply because I enjoy it myself.
💭 Jonah cool, thanks for building this community!
🏒 Lucian Marin I wish Google merged Gmail and Calendar in one app (eg. Inbox) and Chat and Meet in another one (eg. Hangouts). Inbox and Hangouts were so simple to use.
💭 Jonah I didn't even know Inbox was a thing. big FOMO now :/
🏒 Lucian Marin I wanted to built something just like this but with job posts and private messages. I like how they integrated we worked at the same company at the same time.
💭 Jonah that's really cool! do you have any other 'small internet'/unconventional social networks, tools or extensions? I am starting to spend more time on things like rep.ly and unfeeder and subreply readCV
💭 Jonah I just got on rep.ly as well :)
💭 Jonah read.cv is also well designed, check it out!

🏒 Lucian Marin I don't think it's possible. FaceTime doesn't require push notifications.
💭 Jonah good point. I know it's never gonna happen but a google-hangouts style web client would be nice- at that point they might as well just make it all around compatible which is also never gonna happen
