we're now accepting pitches for our KIDS issue of Logic!

deadline is May 15

>Silicon Valley is notorious for turning don’t trust anyone over thirty from a counterculture slogan into a business strategy, which can get awkward as its most famous boy geniuses start to go bald or gray. But this issue will dig into new and unexpected relationships between youth and technologies.

more details including rates for pieces and how to pitch available on our site: logicmag.io/pitch-us/

casey's definitive ranking of sex & the city women (best to worst) 

@casey seems right

Friend Camp has about 50 active users and I just noticed we have more than half a million posts here since August 2018! I mean that's 11 a day per person on average but still. That seems wild to me.

Last I checked something like 75% of our posts are unfederated. That's still 125 thousand posts sent to the fediverse. I think local-only posting increases the vitality of community, increasing the volume of overall activity, and contributing more to the fediverse than a less vital instance would.

@tek lol good thing we don’t care about logicmag.io

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))


hey my department at NYU has two very exciting opportunities you all should apply for: a teaching/research fellowship ($30k stipend, due 4/15) tisch.nyu.edu/itp/red-burns-fe and a project residency ($5k stipend, due 5/1) tisch.nyu.edu/itp/itp-ima-proj

@Moss just free floating down the mood stream, destination unknown

@keith I booked train and flight tickets yesterday and still keep expecting to cancel them! can you imagine looking forward to things?

food nostalgia(?) 

@jplebreton hah this is a relatable post. I used to live a few blocks from annas in porter sq (when I was vegetarian) and now live a few blocks from the mission (and am a vegetarian no longer). every once in awhile I wonder what it would taste like now?

Instagram bs 

@Moss reported a bunch. the comments were so fucked. SF has people who do this on twitter and it makes me sick

git stuff 

@darius this is one of the main things I try to communicate to junior devs: write verbose git commits! and make them a clean discrete idea as much as possible. all code is about communication and the commit message is a handy tool to figure out wtf the code is on about. I didn’t know about the ability to see the diff while writing! gonna update my alias
