After 15 years in #gamedev I'm still working on this and it is so fucking hard.
It's the last few hours of crowdfunding for #Mobilizon, a free open federated alternative to Facebook Events:

It's already achieved its funding goals for events, groups and ActivityPub federation.
Further funds will go to mobile apps, UI development and advanced maps.
It's backed by @Framasoft , the free software organisation that backed PeerTube and many other alternatives.

The #Strike against #uber and #Lyft on the 8th of May will hit cities like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles, among others.

Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.
Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

Something you can stash in a drawer for just-in-case, to keep your neighbors alive in case of collapse. I'd definitely buy one
