Here is a photo that more or less captures what I saw while kayaking. I also saw lots of herons and ibises. (by user Quadell, CC-BY 3.0

Wearing my Distributed Web of Care shirt (from Taeyoon Choi!) for tonight's Day Night meetup in Portland.

Going to Orlando on Monday and all I'm going to be able to think about while I'm there is this guy

I can only parse this as the teenager going up to the podium, saying "I'm gay" into the microphone, and then clapping for a minute

I pulled this book from the library shelf because I thought it was going to be about the devices that measure home electricity usage for the utility company but it turned out to be a DIFFERENT book that is ALSO extremely my shit

Ahhh my favorite college football team, Texas a&m

I didn't take video but her second act was a burlesque routine where the climax was she crushed a cake she baked in the shape of the punk house with her crotch and then parceled out chunks of it to the audience to "I Will Always Love You" (Dolly Parton version ). Aftermath pictured

The basement where I have seen many noise shows and given two CornCon talks

A rare living room stage in addition to the usual basement stage. Note the classic giant foot, an HFBW staple

Human Flesh Body World, my favorite Portland punk house, is ending its five year run today. They made a poster with everyone who ever performed there and I'm on it! I was not expecting to be on it because I'm not a musician but my CornCon talks meant I was included too and I'm grateful to have been a small part of this light in the cultural darkness 😭 (I'm toward the bottom center)

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on and then as another user on
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @emma

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other users, and only ever @ mention other users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
