the safest way to use computers is still abstinence

Criticism is welcome, but remember to give constructive criticism, which includes consideration of how your criticism will affect the other person emotionally. The golden rule applies: how would you feel if you read the message was directed at you? It's hard for someone to constructively make use of criticism if receiving it is an emotional drain.

Hi! You may most likely know me as co-editor of ActivityPub, the decentralized social network message which is more-than-likely how you're actually receiving this message! w3.org/TR/activitypub/

Other things you may want to know:

- I'm a user freedom activist (free software, free culture)
- I post a lot of leftie politics stuff
- Expect lots of tech posts around lisp, decentralized network stuff, obscure-ish programming history

@eylul I'm 100% serious about running ActivityPub D&D.

I just backed our Octodon admin's Patreon because this pure wonderful place is worth supporting. patreon.com/CobaltVelvet/

@cwebber I'm a couple days late, but just sent $25 to SFC and ACLU! Now time to play some tetris :D

Some interesting people to follow:

- @wobblysaeeda New weird animations, every day
- @Sir_Boops just in case you wanted your timeline completely filled with gay furry shitposts
- @Curator promoting art from everywhere on the fediverse
- @technomancy lispy / functional game developer
- @janellecshane for all your weird shit generated from neural networks needs

Holy shit I can just follow @blender which isn't even a Mastodon instance but a Peertube instance and it just WORKS. ActivityPub is AWESOME

@cwebber This is why we are using Racket for fractalide/hyperflow. Hands down best cross-platform GUI out there. Just Works.

@SUEtheTrex Hello! Welcome! So excited you're here. Remember when I came to visit last year? We had the best time.

I'm happy to tell you that Sue, the T-Rex that likes hanging around Chicago museums, is here on the fediverse at @SUEtheTrex further proving that the past and the future go hand in hand.

@cwebber @dthompson ended up porting my Tetris over to #fennel: p.hagelb.org/tetris.fnl.html

doesn't do any speed or score tracking, but it's under 100 lines

using Polywell (my Emacs clone) for the mode system helps keep the input stuff more declarative

Speaking of ansi art... I just pushed a cute change to Racktris... something fun happens now when you quit!

@phoe @cwebber Whoa. Tetris is so much deeper than I realized. O_O

This thing came out sorta stopmotiony in a niceway due the way the simple deform modifier/ shapekeys and the bump texture all interact. I think I could do this in a more controlled way too (it's fun)

Some of my self imposed, often honoured in the breach WOB rules:
- square 1024x1024 resolution
- loops
- 100 frames or less
- fast to do
- wob a day
- 24 fps
- don't plan

Again, we need community auditable, secure, libre hardware designs powering out computer. We need RISC-V machines that are usable by everyday people.
