Pinned toot

Oops, I tried to make a line break but it send the post. No good.

Anyway, find me on Scuttlebutt[0] or shoot me an email[1]. Otherwise, I'll keep my fingers crossed that my account still exists in a few weeks.


I haven't been active at all on for the past few weeks (months?) as I've been spending more time on , but it looks like things may have changed while I've been gone.

In case this instance doesn't survive, I'd love to remain friends with all of you.

Radical Networks is a festival and a conference, designed to foster critical discussions around these issues and to create opportunities to learn more about policy, DIY networking and the future of the Internet

Submissions due by 31 July

A few months ago I switched from Google Play Music to Bandcamp.

And nothing of value was lost. Highly recommend buying music instead of renting it from Google, Spotify, or other online services.

You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

SynthFace is an amazing Tumblr about all kinds of synthesizers. Digital, analog, new, old, conventional, bizarre. All sorts

Heirlooms are commodified emotional burden.

Maybe it's just me, but isn't it a bit weird that women have to choose their honorific depending on marital status?

Not to mention that the only ways to get a non-binary honorific were academic, professional, and religious. We live in interesting times.

Show more is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
