coming off of a really hard, really powerful, really important retreat weekend with my co-op. lots of hard, abstract, and essential conversations about our future, systems, relationships, and everything else that makes us us.
i’m feeling really optimistic and excited about this group of people, and i can’t wait to see what we manage after this weekend.

"How Tiny Red Dots Took Over Your Life" by John Herrman nytimes.com/2018/02/27/magazin

When I stared seeing these red dots on rando marketing websites (clicking it yielded "Hi! I'm Greg. Do you have any questions about <some product>?"), I knew these things were starting to get out of hand.

This is a GitHub repository containing the source code of Pokémon Red and Blue, disassembled and refactored to human-readable (and editable!) asm.

While the code is refactored, its functionality is untouched, and the ROMs you built with this code will be identical to the one that is on US Pokémon Red or Blue cartridge.

It is a really cool and interesting project!

@rowan good article - in case you are curious telephones work in the same way email/Internet/Mastodon does, except there are various mappings of telephone numbers to network routing codes for mobile operators and mobile and fixed operators agree to exchange traffic over their networks in various other ways including VOIP (they are complex-if you are *really* curious you can look on ITU or ETSI website ). The main difference is payment for usage costs is expected at various points.

i wrote a blog post about what mastodon is. i know that it's a tired genre, but i think that i did a good job of explaining it in an easy-to-approach way. please read and share!
