in the meantime on birdsite… what a timeline!
@rra brace yourself for the wave of pluriversality (i'm also guilty of using the concept where it wasn't *that* needed)
@entreprecariat tbh I already feel like we have been at the crest of the pluriversal wave for a while
@wendy @l03s @entreprecariat @rra If "Captain Obvious" has finally realized that interfaces are culture and not some kind of realm of reified platonic cognitive ideals, well, maybe there's hope that some others will start to appreciate how important it is to have things exist outside of "Human Interface Guidelines".
But it sure smells like the woke signaling of a lifelong prescriptivist who's suddenly afraid of going out of style.
@praxeology @wendy @l03s @entreprecariat @rra
That “Captain” is an asshole isn’t he? Saying that being politically correct includes attacking “self-defined feminists when they are behaving badly” and some years later some fake praise of the “pluriverse”?

“I’ll just leave here what Don Norman wrote about me when I called out his friends for sexism and dismissal of scholars of color …”
@entreprecariat @rra it hasn't reached 'entanglement' status just yet... Any concept can be abused (by Don Norman), especially when it becomes popular, but perhaps this popularity indicates it touches on something relevant at that time (genuine struggle against oppression, white guilt, genuine attempts to envision other worlds being possible and more but I just woke up so I'll leave it at that ).
