There seems to be a live concert happening in the restaurant behind our airB&B ... which means we get a live concert of pretty chill music but without having to be in public, order food out of obligation, make eye contact with the musicians, or come in contact with other people!

On the downside, I apparently don't get to take a nap this afternoon :(

BEWARE: As Halloween gets closer, police are warning parents to LOOK at your child’s candy before they eat it. Some houses are reportedly handing out Amber bear amulets of neolithic hunters, 1700-650 BCE, found in Slupsk, Poland

I'm not able to make it this time (I have a meeting!) but @mlemweb will be running another wonderful Hack & Craft in just a few minutes!

So, as it turns out, I'll have a stable wifi connection and be free tomorrow (today? it depends on your timezone ... Saturday Oct 9) to do a @fossandcrafts Hack & Craft even while traveling!

In spite of the late notice, I hope to see some of you there at 14:00-16:00 EDT/18:00-20:00 UTC

@cwebber and I will be traveling for the next three weeks. Sadly this means a brief hiatus from @fossandcrafts and Hack and Crafts.

We should be back near the end of October.

In today's installment of @cwebber looks for a half hour, @mlemweb finds it in 2 minutes:

M: "are they in this bag you brought with you?"
C: "I looked in th..."
M: pulls keys out of said bag before they finish the sentence

Woops! I put the wrong time in my previous post! This talk is happening today at 8:30pm *UTC, or 4:30pm EDT

Hope to see you there for "FOSS & Crafting the Commons" at CC Global Summit 2021

This Wednesday at 8:30pm EDT @cwebber and I are presenting at

We're talking about @fossandcrafts at the intersection of both creating free culture content while also exploring the themes of user freedom, agency, & the cultural commons.

Hope to see you there!

I was so busy working on irl craft projects this week (and therefore not on my computer) that I forgot to post about this week's @fossandcrafts Hack & Craft until today! I hope to see you there!

Tomorrow at 14:00-16:00 EDT (18:00-20:00 UTC)

I'll be continuing my knitting project from the last H&C (though I've changed the pattern a bit since then)

It's the third week of the month! That means that we've got a Hack & Craft event tomorrow from 14:00-16:00 EDT (18:00-20:00 UTC). We hope you'll join us for this hybrid user group and craft circle!

This week's episode of @fossandcrafts features short discussions about a range of topics that @cwebber and I had thoughts about but weren't big enough to do a whole episodes!

Lots of crafty things and "free soft wear," including designing & making my purse and the new clothing labels in action!

Shoutouts to:
@mindspillage for coining the term "free soft wear", & @valhalla for resurfacing it again in the irc channel recently & making their own clothing labels!

Episode 36: Topics of interest!

Lightning round! Morgan and Christine blast through an array of topics they're currently interested in!

Open source NES games! "Free Soft Wear" clothing! Compiler towers!!!

New episode of @fossandcrafts! Episode 36: Topics of interest!

This one was a lot of fun! Lots of little topics!

Shout outs to @NovaSquirrel for the sweet NES game, Jim's Big Ego for the "Mix Tape" song, @valhalla for the tie-on pockets, and @mindspillage for the awesome term "Free Soft Wear"!

@fossandcrafts Woo Hack & Craft!

I'm either working on my lispy game stuff or trying to update my Guix configs, maybe get Guix installed on some of the ARM machines I have laying around...

Looking forward to doing some crafty socializing tonight! Join us for Hack & Craft, our @fossandcrafts user group/stitch and bitch from 8-10pm EDT tonight*:
