"Your disability is the direct result of society's failure to accommodate the entire spectrum of human existence, NOT a flaw within you."
I have new work in this amazing SFPC exhibition at Westbeth Gallery in NYC https://sfpc.io/sevenyears/
I'm showing letterpress prints and a short video piece based on this project https://github.com/aparrish/word-gan-book-generator (mastodon friends have seen a lot of WIP posts about these pieces)
the gallery is open tomorrow and thursday (jan 22nd & 23rd), please go visit if you're in the area and have the time! I should've promoted this before the opening but I'm really bad at remembering to do things like that!
@cwebber Totally true for me too! I found a great exercise called “The Cat” that does miracles for me - strength and stretching in about 2.5 minutes. That plus a few more yoga moves and usually my back is good for the day
@dansup Takes a lot of courage to apologize in public. Thanks for all you do!
@codeberg What about using an Ostrom-based system? Basically a reputation-based rate limiter - i.e. if you’re new here, you need to wait a bit before you get full rights, to ensure you’re trustworthy; projects with more invaders get more fences
@ajroach42 the new Bluetooth LE Audio spec might make this happen, for the audio use-case at least
@richdecibels It tends to be my day of reflection, for the kind of deep thinking that doesn’t process well in the productivity pressure of a normal week. It’s not always a scheduled work day, but I almost always put in a couple hours at the end of the day to capture what’s been brewing and align myself for the week ahead
So, there's this concept of "implicit feudalism" in online communities. Essentially, the vast majority of online communities - from old-school forums, to facebook groups, to large platforms like Twitter and Facebook themselves, even to fediverse instances - they're all run as dictatorships by default. It's built into the software - you'll have a top admin who has full, unconstrained power, they might delegate mods who have some limited powers, and anyone else has to listen to what these dictators and lords tell them. We talk about "federating" here in the fediverse, but each individual community - as far as I'm aware of - is a little dictatorship. A federation of dictatorships is not a free society, anymore than the UN, an international body composed of "liberal democracies" and authoritarian regimes is truly democratic. We need a way to start governing online communities through actual forms of democracy.
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 https://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.

@ajroach42 For EG my 4-core 13” MacBook Pro can output an 80-minute film from ProRes to H.264 in 9 minutes with FCPX. An 18-core iMac Pro takes 30 minutes to do a similar job from Premiere Pro. That’s a more than 10x performance delta, all down to hardware-software integration
@ajroach42 Video editing performance is highly dependent on what codecs you use. Very often to get reasonable performance with modern codecs it has to be implemented in custom hardware (EG Intel QuickSync; Apple T2). Which chips are fast at which codecs is highly uneven.
Performance then depends on:
1. What codec you are using
2. What hardware you have, and
3. The software’s access to and integration with that custom hardware
@gueorgui Did the same! It was fun... for me... 😂
@Bashabez This. 1000%

social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
