This is me doing re-

Hello! I'm a programmer and a (new-ish) parent, I've been running this personal instance since time immemorial.

I talk mostly about tech, but I try to branch out into artsy stuff on my secondary account: @zatnosk

From time to time I get |s, and some of those ideas have been channeled into my and projects.

I do my best to be kind and understanding, and I'm not afraid of some emotional labor for friends :)

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.

tfw you're in bed, you want to do something, and then you just get up and do it!

What a rare and powerful feeling of unimaginable and seldom ocurring powerfulness.

Yes. Achievement unlocked! Someone replied "big mood" to a post of mine.

I'm a real millennial now, y'all comrades!

Sometimes I feel like I'm poisoning other people's threads by replying nonsense.

I keep wondering if I should setup a script that autodeleted any (public) post that didn't have hashtags, replies, likes or boosts.

I feel useless.

But not in a self-deprecating way, just as a mood.

I feel like being absolutely useless right now.

I kinda want to figure out my dreamteam of pokemon and commission several art pieces:
One of me and the whole team, and one each of me and a single pokemon out. And then use the team picture as profile background and the others as avatars.

Sadly, I can't afford to pay decently for such artwork.

(Anyone is more than welcome to copy this idea)

I don't think there's anyone about who hasn't seen it, but if you're feeling generous you can support my #kickstarter to publish my librarians-and-necromancy fantasy novel, BOOKS & BONE.

I'm now trying to hit the first stretch goal to cover the cover art and the cost of ISBNs so I can get it into libraries and shops and just ... other places than Amazon.

Thanks to all who have supported so far! 💙


Would it be okay to write "pale scandinavian" instead of "white", or is that just more internalized racism? I'm genuinely curious.
I feel like "white" has a lot of american cultural annotations, that I don't identify with at all.

If you’re white and you take a selfie you should mention it in your image description to help remove white as the default.
