Internet culture as such a weird combination of "everything is flawlessly recorded forever" and "you just had to be there". Everything is simultaneously permanent and ephemeral. We're drowning in records that have no context, and context that has no records

Leaving Austin today, trying to grab some torchys on the way out - hope I make my flight. Does anyone know if there is one in the airport? And if not, why not

I’m at a rugby game. Super confused about the rules but it’s fun to watch

Omg that was the spiciest catching a flight of my life. 🏃‍♂️🚨 Never boarded that late before, I thought I’d missed it for sure. Anyways MSP ✈️NYC

@nibalizer I had events Wednesday and Friday, with most of my attention spent on organizing the Friday one.

Looking at my email and it’s just a bloodbath 💣

Here's a fun little project I've been working on :)

Limonada is a sprite editor with a UI inspired by old versions of Paint. It's currently in an early alpha stage but is already usable (pen, line, floodfill!)

My plan is that it will eventually be an alternative to proprietary solutions, as well as being a good cross-platform choice for sprite editing.

Get it here (you'll need to build from source, or pm me for a binary): github.com/japanoise/limonada

Now that the newest wave is getting into instance installation, it seems like a good time to point out that there is a friendly fork of mastodon that experiments with adding or enhancing features and functionality maintained by the talented glitchwitches of dev.glitch.social/ - code repo is at github.com/glitch-soc/mastodon #mastotips

I know that Mastodon can be a little confusing at first. But don't worry, it's great and not that complicated to use! I'm sure you'll catch up in no time.
That being said, it doesn't dispense regular users like me to give you some tips. So here we go!

Flying home from SF today. Very tired but happy with the final product

Argh San Francisco’s hotels are expensive for no reason

Finally got my digital photo frame app running on a Raspberry Pi. It's written in #Rust and uses #OpenGL via parts of the Piston game framework.

I've also got a cross compilation worklow working that means I can compile the binary on my laptop and then just copy it over to the Pi.

Need to improve the performance a bit next.

One of the weird things about rocket chat is it doesn’t make channel discovery easy. I literally can’t find a list of channels

Being a manger at a large corporation is like trying to use Mac OS 9

I want to emphasize that I am very skeptical that #CryptoMastodon will take off. But i'm willing to try, because:

1. We need to learn how to continue the conversation under censorship

2. We need alternatives to Twitter and Reddit

3. Help platforms like @mastodon improve

4. Figure out how to transport identity and reputation

5. Find more alternatives

6. Enjoy some #shitposting

I started using Ko this week, it’s a utility that removes “docker build;docker push” from your workflow. Neat, and kinda trippy if I’m being honest github.com/google/go-container
