a personal project that i've come to appreciate is my screenshot garden, a small curated mirror of my desktop screenshots folder.
it is really just an online directory tree with a few automated processes on top, but even so i've liked having it- a little folder of time spent browsing, working, and collecting which bundles itself up for you
i've written out some instructions and template code for the workflow, so you can build your own;
i think i might write a little tutorial / code template for others to make their own? it has been a good practice for me this year
moved the screenshot garden over to neocities today and the general update flow already feels so much nicer :) https://screenshot-garden.neocities.org/
a 2 year old tortoiseshell cat named eva is gonna come home with me next week. i don't have any good photos because i was too excited to meet her to remember to take them! but i can't wait!!
been slowly switching all my static hosting back over to neocities and honestly it just rules. the CLI is so simple and does exactly what it promises, the web interface is clear, it updates changes right away, it's cheap. long term goal is still a server in my house but this feels pretty solid for now
honestly can't believe i was crushing on someone who isn't on the fediverse smdh
last week, i finished a new game -
Shell Song is an audio & hypertext piece about voices, bodies, corporate software packages, transness, and surveillance but maybe mostly about coming face to face with a ghost of your body already present in a dataset, and the knowledge that this ghost may yet come to outlive you

So you know how the Joe Biden #AnimalCrossing island has fenced-off areas you can't really visit, meant to be viewed from a distance? If you enter the dream wearing a wetsuit, you can jump off the airport pier and swim around the island to get to at least some parts of those areas. Here's me behind the "White House" (museum adorned with custom panels)
i'm retiring an older collaborative project that never quite got off the ground... BUT in doing so we're releasing the tiles we drew for it into the creative commons. 281 free, hand-drawn isometric tiles, to use in your projects:
this has been an awful year in many ways but i still believe in working towards a better tomorrow. to that end @abundance and i have drafted an anti-capitalist software license for those of us who want to share software in a way that empowers others without contributing to capitalism as a system. it fills a void for the two of us and we hope it might be useful to you as well!
I have a new tabletop rpg!
The Cloister is a two person storytelling game about a pilot returning to their home planet, and the operator who is helping them to land.
(It is less about feats of engineering and more about the stories we tell ourselves and each other about home.)

Wow, there is a whole public conversation going on inside the Creative Commons copy of 'Twitter & Teargas' via hypothes.is
Now that's what I call hypertext
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
