You can support my work on advancing decentralized social networks at "FOSS & Crafts Studios":

A post explaining the rename:

It's still covering the same work I've been doing on decentralized social networks, but also is expanded a bit. It's a bit more obviously connected to the @fossandcrafts podcast, but also @mlemweb and I have various projects to advance FOSS & free culture we'd like to explore... so your support advances all of that!

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!

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

If anyone want to look into a cute and well made :doomLogoL::doomLogoR:​ game, look no further than "Rise of The Wool Ball" :blobCatHappy:

made a pull request for #freedoom that adjusts key graphics to be more colorblind friendly. red keys have a horizontal line on them, yellow keys a vertical line, and blue keys an X shape.

also adjusted skullkey icons to have horns and shapes like actual skull keys. #accessibility

My memory of Lisbon is especially "these people seem to have mistaken rocky cliffs for streets"

COVID-19 population level immunity estimate graph

Lists US population-level immunity close to 80%, and MA (my state) level immunity nearing 90%

That seems good at least?

It's been 4000 years since March 2020 feel old yet

python is the best programming language (it is the one i know)

About to speak at CC Global Summit with @mlemweb about "FOSS & Crafting the Commons" with @mlemweb about, unsurprisingly, @fossandcrafts!

I remember when I was in high school, finding people who were into smarmy absurdist highly abstracted humor seemed like a rare thing

and quite frankly hell YEAH, get ON my lawn

@lanodan @be

internet?! more like interNOT!!!

just say no to interconnected networks, you have it on good authority this is a position I take

EFF's diceware page is great. For the next time you switch out your password/passphrase:

Today I learned about "smerge" in emacs. How did I not know about this earlier?

This video talks about smerge and ediff, btw:

From the Guix blog: What's In a Package?

A look into how Guix aims for reproducibility, how packages can make this easy or (in this case) difficult, and how we all stand to benefit from buildable-from-source systems and stand to lose from opaque box binary-only approaches.
