Brilliant post by Alexis King about creating a generalized side channel to communicate between walled-off compilation-time/runtime layers using a logger and a garbage collector

@AbbieNormal It's a good question, and worth tackling, yes. I think that we can't totally prevent these things but the "engagement" type stuff definitely sends the wrong antipatterns, feed into the wrong kinds of the brain.

The "depth rather than depth" stuff for p2p social networks ties into this, I think. More to say later, I will try to write it up.

Tired today. Tempted to play some Crawl. Probably not a good idea.

We've reached a point where we'd like to start #hiring developers to work on the #WriteFreely roadmap 💻 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a #Go / #Golang developer and want to work on a growing #fediverse project, I'd love to hear from you!

@cwebber @librelounge I estimate we have ~350 regular listeners and then we have another one or two hundred people who have listened to more than one episode.

What I do see in my crude analysis is that over time, the number of total listeners goes up. I estimate that by looking at how many downloads a show gets in the first two weeks, and that number has been trending upward.
