This east coast university is about to invite me for a presentation during their deaf international culture awareness week. So they requested the usual headshot and bio. This is what I sent:

If you feel #anxious, stop scrolling, get out, take a walk, talk to real people. Only real world can heal us.

I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)

It’s always difficult admitting you’re wrong. But sometimes you have to in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So, today, I admit that I was wrong about Google, Facebook, & surveillance capitalism in general being toxic for our human rights and democracy … it simply cannot be true given how they are endorsed by some of the most well-respected organisations in the world.

Not alternatives as such, but did you know there are some really nice webcomics on here? :blobaww:

Hey, remember that Little Library project I've been working on? Well, it's up and functional right now to try out!

little-library.herokuapp.com/

Feel free to contribute some #ebooks and check out what other people add! If you notice anything wrong with it, let me know or/and add a Github issue: github.com/Alamantus/little-li

I'll get a domain for it someday probably, and maybe I'll even try to work on basic outgoing #ActivityPub support so you can follow added and removed books! But that's a project for another day.

So what are things that are already done for #Mastodon v2.7?

Profile directory for finding people based on interests, new admin UI for accounts, moderation warnings system so you know when and why your account was disabled/limited/suspended by a mod, and a new sign up API that app devs can use to let people sign up without leaving their app.

241 commits since 2.6

Also, without exception, dog owners who are mostly serious about the dog being their baby have been borderline or outright abusive to the dog because, get this, dogs and infants have different needs.

nothing against free speech but freedom of speech does not obligate me to syndicate your opinions (editorial control is a form of speech) nor does it obligate me to read them (choosing what to read is also a form of speech). sorry.

I just finished my first #singlePlayer game of #Crypt! I didn't lose, but I did get the lowest score above losing 😅

#solitaire games are usually hard, but this one's still fun! I'm looking forward to playing with some more people!

I continue my work on kid-friendly #lego-based #bloodbowl-style soccer #boardgame.

I now have experimental mechanics for moving, controlling the ball, shoving minifigs of the way.

I still need mechanics for shooting and passing the ball, kicking off and, er, dismantling minifigs.

If anybody wants to help, the doc is here: docs.google.com/document/d/1ld . I have 6 days to fulfill my promise :)

Also, I apparently promised to call this game #legrick, so I guess that's the official name.
