When I think of a future with Open Social Media, I imagine three pillars.

1) Microblogging (ActivityPub), for sharing thoughts with strangers, ephemeral community building, and broad+global reach.

2) Forum / Stable Community (no good solution yet, AFAIK), for discussing, planning, buying/selling locally. All within a distinct group of people, membership of which can be managed.

3) Peer2Peer (Scuttlebutt?), for talking directly to friends, family, nearby people, and easily sharing files.

Mead, chips, and licorice-chocolate; hello saturday!

Let's see if I can turn that into a bit of writing.

So thinking about the failure of the project brought me to ask a bigger question. What does a programming experience that does not privilege one culture overall others even look like?

I'm pretty sure the title of this book would be written with purple or gold if it dropped in an MMO.

Was about to say "first chapter was pretty good" but when I turned the page it said "chapter three", so that's an indicator for how fast I got invested in this book.

Very excited to read more soon 😃

Can I have some epic fantasy that doesn't treat colonization and/or empire as a good thing?

... I should have cw'd that "long" post, so it wouldn't take up so much space in my notification column.

Favorite part: The danish, german, and english pages in the pre-2008 design has different background colors.

The danish is soft pink, the german is bright yellow, and the english is harsh red.

I'd like to belatedly celebrate that hm.dk has had more or less the same website design for more than 20 years.

Wayback machine links:

Year 2000, built with tables:
web.archive.org/web/2000101815

Year 2008, page moves to index.html and gets a tech upgrade away from table-layout, still very recognizable:
web.archive.org/web/2008090502

Year 2021 / today: page looks like in 2008 with some content updates. Layout is recognizable compared to 2000-version:

ttrpg shenanigans 

Tbt that time @nuhn was GM and named an NPC in our campaign [name] [other name]-son, without realizing that one of the players - and her best friend of many many years - is named [other name] [name]-son.

Example with replaced names:

NPC: Jack Johnson
Player's name: John Jackson

Apparently I have two spotify accounts. I just found out because I logged in with the wrong one and all my playlists weren't there.

In danish, we don't say Spongebob Squarepants, we say Mushroombob Rectangle.

mental health, indirectly negative 

I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing that anger seems effective at driving away the anxiety and fear.

I'm pretty sure it comes back once the anger goes away, and I can't sleep angry.

Gggrrrrr

I wrote a novel about a bunch of queer, neurodivergent TTRPG nerds and their portal fantasy adventure.

It's cosy and strange and I think you might like it!
