After a decade long hiatus, I started a personal "web log" once again. One nice feature of the platform I use (write.as) is the ability to federate the content. Sometimes, just sometimes, the future delivers:

US pol, human rights, argh 

A little bit of sunshine on such a deeply sad day. Thank you, Nicole.

A reminder for those of you who happen to be unlucky enough to live in the US right now with #RoeVsWade overturned:

Uninstall any proprietary period tracking apps you might have – they *will* snitch on you.

Use drip instead, its fully open source and doesn't include trackers[1].

Then added some log piles, because hedgehogs love that shit. A few decorative stones because everyone loves those. An ornament to make it feel more homely, and a lantern seeing as they go out at night and might find it a bit dark.

They already seem happy enough with the floor, having spent a combined hour in there (a lot for 3 hedgehogs at what is just a feeding station) so hopefully they'll like what I've done with the place 🥺

Took a nap and dreamed that I made a mastodon bot posting images of words tattooed on fists and the one that went viral said “GOLF DADS”

It thinks this is me.

I must say: I *do* feel some eerie familiarity looking at them.

Tesla? No way. I know TOooo much about computers to want to drive around in one of the beasts.

more reasons to hate Zuckerberg, deadnaming as a policy choice 

As if you don't need any more reasons to delete your Facebook, and Instagram and throw your Occulus in the e-waste bin: Facebook won't let a friend of mine change their name until they update their birth certificate, and the state they were born in won't let them update their birth certificate until they show proof of gender confirmation surgery.

You don't have any say on someone's name, so fuck off to hell, Zuckerberg.

@ziffy For many already owned #wordpress blogs ( something around ~milions people) the easiest solution could be just fediverse-enabling their blog with #activitypub #plugin

Good overview of the Belgian gov's data retention proposal, forcing platforms to provide metadata to authorities. This is important as it would result in a ban of those that don't - or can't - like Signal. As this proposal could spread to other EU member states, it needs to be fought at every turn, before it is too late edri.org/our-work/belgium-want

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

90% of the work in building an SPA is putting back in stuff that the browser would have given you for free if you just hadn't built an SPA

Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?
