If we’re looking to create a generation that makes stuff, we need to ask them to think about the impact of the stuff they’re making as well as the amount of control they have over that impact.

👍 The generation currently making (software) stuff needs to do that, too—largely very good at figuring out the most effecient way to do/make stuff, but not at all good at figuring out whether said stuff should be done/made ;-)

@smokey completely agree with this!

(on a completely different note, how did you create the "quote" box?)

@vishae Start a new line with a right angle bracket (>), followed by space, followed by the text you want to quote.

Micro.blog uses an unspecified superset of John Gruber’s original Markdown spec. There’s a quick reference article for basics in Help, and more examples on Daring Fireball. (The superset includes other things, too, like tables, which mainly serve to inadvertently break things any time someone uses a vertical bar!)

@vishae Er, a literal right angle bracket (>), not the HTML entity.

@smokey hahah, thanks.

Because I’ve been using Ulysses for so long, I’ve forgotten all the original markdown stuff (and I though MB only supported bold, italics and links)
