I have an uncommon physical #invisibledisability which causes chronic pain. Over time I've lost the ability to play guitar. So I started spoken word and splashing around in Logic.
Also like to paint and play Pokemon if my condition lets me.
Not sure if I have a personality outside of that, so... that's all I guess! Thanks for reading ^^
#introductions Hey guys, I just finished my Bachelor Degree in Computer Science with a focus on information security here in Germany and started to work full-time as a Deployment Guy. I am wondering if I should continue with my Masters Degree or keep working. Hopefully I will find some interesting people and conversations here :)
Hey, #admins, did you know that a lot of people want to know what your local timeline looks like and did you know that you can optionally show the local timeline instead of the federated timeline in that "a look inside" feed?
It's in the admin settings! Go and tick it if you want the whole outside world to see your local timeline!
Hello Mastodon! I'm a techy programmer-type person hoping to help build a better world (direct democracy, solidarity economy, etc.). I also happen to live in a vehicle on wild, public lands, moving every couple weeks, foraging, practicing survival skills and helping people where we can. I know a lot about radio, solar, 12v DC power and nature/wildlife as a result. Nice to meet you all! Hope to see familiar and new faces. #introduction
#introductions Hi! I am a Romance Languages professor, specialist on 20th century French literature and philosophy, working on a book on matricide and modernism, a project on literature and tattoos, and trying to finish this semester in one piece. (Also, pretty new to mastodon, figuring it out still) #tattoos #modernism #poststructuralism
If you're into working with humans, free software & cryptography, and you love the idea of helping news organizations break their biggest stories based on submissions by whistleblowers, you may want to come work with me! New opening at Freedom of the Press Foundation just went up - boosts appreciated:

Good NYT #longread on the role of Facebook posts in exacerbating violence in #SriLanka. If you want to see evidence of the life and death consequences of centralized control of social media algorithms, this is about as compelling as it gets.
I'm late to the #introductions, but here it goes. I'm 30, she/her, from #Germany. I work as a environmental scientist at a university, pursuing a PhD degree. I need some #python #programming skills to do that.
I'm fairly into #crafts, especially #fiberarts like #knitting and #sewing.
I enjoy #boardgames a lot, I also started playing #shadowrun about a year ago.
#games like #citiesskylines or #civilization5 have quite a few hours on my steam account.
Plus: Trying to improve my #french ;)
Got to play a bit with #QubesOS this week. Too early for a full review, but anyone with strong privacy concerns should definitely check it out, especially if you still rely on Google, FB, or other big proprietary services with a propensity for tracking.
You segregate your applications into "domains", which run in VMs that can't talk to each other unless you want them to. So you could put proprietary web apps in an "untrusted" domain, far from your dev or personal projects. Neat!
To toot boldly where no one has tooted before
