We have open source hardware that's being developed and used to combat the shortcomings of proprietary hardware during this coronavirus pandemic.

The open source socioeconomy is literally saving lives where the closed source socioeconomy is refusing to do so.

reading an article which claims one of the reasons no fantasy series since has had the impact of the lord of the rings is because compared to them, lotr is more accessible due to its shorter length; and like, if fucking lord of the rings is 'short' and 'accessible', that alone is a stunning condemnation of the entire fantasy genre

For a while I've been thinking that it would be nice to set up an #online group for #learning together, talking and helping each other. 🙂

What do you think? Would you like to take part? Do you have hints how to set this up?

Please share/boots and comment! 🙂

Hi all! If you're in need of distraction and money is a barrier, I've made all my books free on itch.io!

💀 🖤 📚 ✨

That's a 422 page fantasy novel, plus a supporting novelette and short stories.

Review from RockStarlit Book Asylum: "Although its setting not exactly cheery, there is something utterly charming in this book that just won me over."

Please enjoy my unexpectedly charming novel about black magic.

And!

I know fedi isn't perfect, but I keep on forgetting just how hostile communities outside can be to voices of color, of those facing discrimination and oppression.

I keep coming back to the thought that the fediverse isn't really meant for the standard web browser. It needs its own dedicated native client, a "fediverse browser".

Hey! If you're a #fediverse platform or app, and you have a brand icon, you should think about getting it included in #ForkAwesome!

I say this because #WeDistribute actually uses that icon set in tags and categories. I'm building in theme support for it so that project brands get promoted throughout the site!
