44% of the population is part of the workforce, with a life expectancy of 77 years.

I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool gath.io

The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

Introducing #Botober, a set of AI-generated drawing prompts for each day in October!

I generated these using GPT-3, a neural net trained on a huge amount of internet text, but not on drawing prompts specifically. (This explains a lot)


Breadposting because I’m proud of this delicious loaf

@redoak @nicksellen are non-tech-team folks OK to join the tech call today? I'm curious!

roguelike devs be like... 

Small brain: waste time on assets

Big brain: stick with lofi/pixel/minimal art to give more time to the actual gameplay

Galaxy brain: we don't need no assets, we just put symbols on screen

Cosmic brain: spend time on crafting proper-looking fonts to put symbols on screen

Oooh, someone went and built a thing I've been imagining for quite a while: a Patreon alternative that's structured as a creator- and worker-owned ! comradery.co/

I wanna follow more folks on here, my feed is too sparse. I'm interested in , , , , and like... cool chill creative folks who talk about things other than the news. Who should I follow?

Huh, did social.coop get an upgrade? Things look different!


exhausted by coworker who thinks it's fine to seek out contracts w/ oil & gas co's because "they're working on shifting to greener technology! don't we want to support that?"

modding is super confusing. Here's a mini-FAQ on all the different modding tools, mostly for my own reference:

Bukkit (aka CraftBukkit): One of the first Minecraft modding tools. Server-side only. Some weird DMCA junk means it's complicated to download.
Spigot: a souped-up Bukkit.
Sponge: Similar in goals to Bukkit, but different and newer. No DMCA junk.
Forge: A different approach to modding than Bukkit. Much more invasive. Optionally includes client-side modding capabilities.
