Hey fellow tooters, do you know any people around here interested in these topics? I’d love to chat about them, I don’t know who to follow!
- music composition
- electronic music, chiptune
- VJing, live digital performances
- indie video games
- hardware hack (softcore cpus, gpus…)
- programming language design
- operating system design
- drawing, painting
- crafts (woodworking, sewing…)
I probably forgot some of my interests there, but it’s a start!
Boost is appreciated. :3
"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"
"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"
"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"
"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"
What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".

"My Neighbor Totoro: "Tonari no Totoro" 5 cello cover by Jeremy Tai
The piece "Tonari no Totoro", composed by the one and only Joe Hisaishi, is a mashup of the major themes in the movie "My Neighbor Totoro"."
A wholesome story three goblins leaving their village in search for a better life.
A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”
It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”
It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)
By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.
And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Related: I couldn’t post this without thinking “oh is this another one of those things you saw on the Internet and reworked your memories (or lack thereof, in this case 😆) to fit? more mental health cyberchrondia?” Glad I talked to my therapist about this recently; she set me straight on this front.
