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

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.

I finished my stint as a Mozilla Fellow and now I'm relaunching my Patreon with a focus on, well, fixing social media.

This means I'm going to continue my concerted work trying to make the fediverse a better place, in the form of best practice guides for running instances, external advocacy, and technical tutorials and training so that more people can contribute software to the fediverse at large.

You can read a partial summary of my work so far at my new Patreon page!

Faucets drip, and the night plunges to minus
     fifteen degrees. Today you stared at a map
of Africa on a school wall and shook your head
     at “Yugoslavia” written along the Adriatic
coast near the top—how many times
     are lines drawn and redrawn, and to what end?

I just learned about Tropy, an open source desktop application for managing the thousands of photos that I end up taking on research trips to archives:

@z anyone with the handle "roger mexico" gets an auto-follow

only today learning about and I have succumbed to Squarch Squadness

@darius teach a man to hamburger today and he'll gladly pay you on Tuesday

Give a man a hamburger, and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hamburger, and he'll hardly know 'er.

Okay, I'm gonna stream Fights in Tight Spaces at 6 Pacific tonight. Tune in then to watch me attempt to win a run! I'll do my best to explain strategy etc too.

Fights in Tight Spaces 

by the way if you like Into the Breach and Slay the Spire... Fights in Tight Spaces. Play it. It's my new favorite game.

Show thread

Fights in Tight Spaces 

trying to decide whether to *stream* a Fights in Tight Spaces run later today or just to record a run with my commentary and post it. I think I would do better if I didn't have an audience, but an audience might result in more people actually *looking* at it, and I want to get more people playing this game...

i made a new (old) game 

I was motivated to recreate a shareware game I used to play 25 years ago, with my sister, on a CD-Rom of 100 games for Mac. (system 7?). I don't know the name of that original game but have attempted to implement my own version. it's a resource / survival strategy game like a simplified Oregon Trail game. Plays in the browser, has a pretty good soundtrack!

Sometimes the mere process of writing out a cw is enough to make me go "huh. Maybe this joke doesn't need telling."

*slaps roof of a school* this bad boy can fit so many sharks in it
