I thought I would share this 1-bit tile-set by KenneyNL over on bird-site.

It's a CC0 licensed #gameassets pack containing 1,024 tiles/items/characters. I love its aesthetics and _will_ be making some things with it.

Do not underestimate the value of 'soft' skills! Even in groups that do tech work like software development having people whose primary skills have nothing to do with software is important.
One hacker space I went to for a bit was mostly held together by a kid who came in and didn't know anything about what people were doing, they just liked to sit there and watch and talk to people as they worked.
Without them I think that the space would have fallen apart.

People like that are very important.

I'd really like a mastodon client that focuses on threads instead of presenting every reply in a feed with all the other replies to other threads.

It's how I understand it in my head, why should I have to do all this extra work to parse out:
Which thread is this post in?
Have I seen this thread before?
Have I read this part of the thread?

It's a waste of spoons and bad UX in my opinion.

A game cartridge for the original GameBoy that is actually a small computer with wifi, and it runs nothing but a Mastodon client.

From the "Douglas Adams was on to something" file:

42 is the only integer under 100 that can't be expressed as the sum of three cubes (as far as we know).

Every time I see the Hacker Ethic praised without critically challenging its shortcomings, I have to think of "Programming is Forgetting: Toward a New Hacker Ethic" by Allison Parrish and wish it was more popular. You can read the transcript here opentranscripts.org/transcript

Hi! You may remember me from hit series such as “Mastodon has a Project Manager”, “I've returned as Project Manager for Mastodon - a love-letter”, and “Time to Fork This Stuff”.

Now I'm working on getting Florence off the ground, putting the power back in the hands of you the community which uses the software, and taking your anti-harassment and accessibility concerns seriously.

Mastodon work was always a passion project of mine, now it can keep being just that.
