I'm trying to use my @SDF account in @Jami on Android but I just get an ERROR_HOST message with no further explanation. Any pointers?

I should probably turn off the nagging voices in my head and be proud of what I did today.

Can anyone think of good examples of universities ditching proprietary software and opting to develop a free alternative in-house instead?

@jboy the processing and arduino projects largely fit this description processing.org/ arduino.cc/ (professors in my department contributed to both projects early on, and they replaced proprietary software/hardware in our curriculum like macromedia director and PIC)

I had a few students stuck on OS X 10.9 and another on win32, and they couldn't run Beaker Browser. I was happy to see that most have full-fledged laptops though.

In class today I had students work with to set up electronic portfolios of their assignments served via Dat protocol.

Eventually they started finding markdown tutorials so they could insert animated horse gifs. They really enjoyed it and made some fun stuff!

Unexpected bonus: It's written in !

I see that they're also on here as @Jami πŸ‘‹

Looks like a really nice option in this crowded space, but I'm afraid ~network effects~ are conspiring against it. For me at least. πŸ¦—
