Anyone know what's up with It's been down for a while (some days, at least).

Okay here's a real toot that you can actually boost without people looking at you like you're crazy.

The past few weeks (okay, ever since the schism) I've felt kind of disenchanted by Mastodon and especially its development environment, and I wrote an essay about why that is. It's long, but if you're interested in Mastodon's history or politics you should give it a read.

"It seems strange to have to assert that increasing access to knowledge is more likely to present benefits to society than not, but that appears to be the state of the debate in 2017. The shock of the Trump vote, and the Brexit vote, has produced an understandable hunger for explanation, accompanied by a crisis of intellectual confidence."

That's a cool display of connected Mastodon instances

If someone knows which software this was done with, I'd appreciate a pointer.

We Sleep: On the Enduring Propheticism of John Carpenter’s THEY LIVE

Hi, I'm Kate. I write fiction (F/SF). Still working on that submission thing.

I'm also a scientist who does computational biology. Right now I am studying the 3D structure of DNA and trying to understand how it affects genes turning on and off.

I'm also a Canadian who recently moved to the US (Seattle, specifically). I'm pretty fond of ice cream, coffee AND tea, my husband, my cat, riding my bike, and lazy hiking (the kind where you don't climb a mountain).
