This weekend I'm offering a unique service: Send me a sentence that uses the word "experience" to describe a process involving computers. I will remove or replace "experience" from that sentence. Screenshots welcome!

@ me or reply to this tweet, paste text or screenshot.

A physical "off" switch for:

🍍 the built-in camera (obvious reasons)
🍍 the trackpad (to stop it from clicking on stuff when I'm trying to type)

I have officially entered cuteness overload

reading through code comments that use first-person pronouns like finding a worn, unsigned diary, on the beach of a forgotten island, that gives me hints to the next puzzle

I'm on the Lawfare Podcast today talking about the bot panic on mainstream social media and also the benefits (and drawbacks) of decentralized social media:


This was a really funny/fun conversation with the hosts, it should be a pretty entertaining listen.

"how did you learn to solve merge conflicts?"

"I caused them"

"I also got a bad taste in my mouth from Twitter supporting kinds of speech that I don't particularly agree with, and I began to feel like putting my toys and art there was just adding value to the network. For a while I felt that the tradeoff was that the art I published there still enriched my life and the lives of my friends. At some point, though, I started to feel like the balance got out of whack, and I could do more good by putting my work on alternate networks and giving people a reason to get off Twitter. "

All cultural producers with some degree of audience and influence should really think about this: what structures do I validate by my presence? What and whose structures do I reinforce? What other places can I advantage?

Are there any devices that support CircuitPython and have video and audio outs?

re: bitbucket deleting hg repos 

@vickysteeves mercurial repos could be hosted on sourcehut (sr.ht) as well.

@amj honestly it's a bit of a stupid move on Atlassian's, because Hg repos make up a little less than 1% of their overall repos, and they could keep them without having to do much. I assume they want more git-focused features and didn't want to extend to Hg, but that's speculation

from @elizabeengland: "I'm excited to share something I've worked very hard on for the past 3 months: the updated NARA Digital Preservation Framework!"

I am looking forward to digging into this!!
