@chrisshorb As I mentioned, check the local stream on dice.camp to find interesting folks, for example @paulczege is an active poster. Folks from other instances you might find interesting include @kensanata who talks #osr and also some hippy indy stuff :) ... and follow @robert if you'd find some board game content in your feed interesting.
@chrisshorb Hey Chris, welcome to Mastodon. Glad to see you made it aboard.
OK, the Isolation IRC Party is *on* for tonight. Official start is 7:00 PM Pacific time, but you can join earlier and leave any time you want.
Network is IRCNet. Channel is #IsolateParty. I'm 'jwb'. Be virtually there or be really square!
DM me for details and help logging on.
Please RT, especially if you have #Seattle followers, because many of the people logging on tonight are locals.

In these current days of spending most of the time in my house and only communicating with the outside world through a series of tubes, I'm reminded of this eerily prescient SF story from 1909: https://www.ele.uri.edu/faculty/vetter/Other-stuff/The-Machine-Stops.pdf

The Corvids are Conspiring!
First time out with a #Root Underworld faction. The Corvids cleaned up, they turned out to be quite a bit more dangerous than they seemed on the surface!
App wireframes I'm reviewing have a bottom nav bar, a nav drawer, AND scrolling tabs along the top.
The best part is whoever made the wireframes doesn't even seem know what the bottom nav bar might be used for, it just contains a bunch of x'd out boxes...
