A chart with years from 1800 to 2019 on the X-axis and values from 0% to 0.00220% on the Y-axis.

There are three series:

- Vim is spread more or less evenly across the chart
- Emacs has seen a small uptake in 1880 and a much larger one from 1980-2019 with a peak at 2000, twice as large as Vim's
- VS Code started appearing in 2014 and still hasn't reached Emacs.

For a while it seemed as if Mastodon might emerge as the winning alternative. Decentralisation means that, unlike Twitter, it cannot be changed by a new owner. But for those of us who are used to being spoon-fed social network set-ups, Mastodon is baffling. Picking a server and choosing an app sounds too much like hard work.

From Wikipedia: Healthcare

Social media platforms can increase the speed of dissemination of evidence-based health practices.[64] A study by Reynolds and Boyd found the majority of participants (who were healthcare staff) felt that memes could be an appropriate means of improving healthcare worker's knowledge of and compliance with infection prevention practices.[65] Internet memes were also used in Nigeria to raise awareness of the COVID-19 pandemic, with healthcare professionals using the medium to disseminate information on the virus and its vaccine.[66]
