The Blender project is posting new videos on their instance of peertube and the notices are showing up in my mastodon feed. The fediverse is pretty great.
I recommend The Last Days of Night about the 1850s electrification of New York City and the legal battles between Edison and Westinghouse (and Tesla).
Just did a writeup on getting started with using LIDAR data and the geo-mapgen project to create a voxel world inside minetest.
cellphone based augmented reality is still a great idea. why doesnt a game like this exist?
This trailer for "Shadow Cities" is from *2010* and to my knowledge there isnt a game like it outside of the Niantic franchises.
Mastodon 2.6.0 Release Notes https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.6.0
is there a mastodon/activitypub discovery/search site? the tag explorer site i know of is down. https://mastodon-tags-explorer.hcxp.co/tags
seems like there is an opportunity for someone to build something interesting in that space.
this post has by far the best explanation of why 0.1+0.2=0.30000000000000004
Using a tool that turns USGS lidar into a minetest map, I think there is finally an identifyable feature in the data. Topo map: https://opentopomap.org/#marker=16/45.40930/-122.65780 Minetest screenshot: https://donp.org/i/djnk.png
basically, what tweetdeck was doing in 2008. #tootdeck
thinking a bit more about user-defined object types inside an activitystreams activity.
first use case is music, what im listening to now. something as simple as a #listeningnow could work. i'd want the mastodon UI to a) pull those messages into a seperate column (titled with the tag). ah yes tag-columns in general. define a list of tags and toots contianing those tags get pulled out of "Home" and into their column. Good for noisy tags like #listeningnow #readingnow #location-checkin
Zig, a fantastic "Better C" language has a significant new release. https://ziglang.org/download/0.3.0/release-notes.html Also godbolt.org is amazing.
