Hi, I'm Matilde. Creative technologist, hacker. I made video games in the past; I now work as a software developer.
Fascinated by experiments in technological narrativisation + play; p2p and the way it can change our lives — specifically reimagining how computers slot into our lives; software as bodies.
Blog and make music with friends every now and then.

now the truth is being broadcast at me five different ways 24/7 and i need to find a cabin
Even stuff like the animations on the sign-in for Google chugs along. I'm too afraid to use Discord; Ripcord doesn't build on ARM, so I'm cut off from that. I still have a lot of utilities though, so I'm just working from terminals.
Took #pinebook with me to my folks place; working with the constraints. It turns out the web, when you're using text browsers and text-only email clients, is just lots of noise.
I still feel the pangs of ownership, of emotional investment, of wanting control — but also forced to see I'm not always right. idk. happy to grow
The past week or so I've been called to overhaul so much process — public boards, priority systems, being friendly to global contributors, and now I have to enforce a two-stream release cycle. Learning a lot because of it. Even commit hygiene alone was a massive improvement that was necessitated once I stopped being a cowboy.
@toast you’re cool btw, I keep forgetting to say
If you want a laptop sorta better than a core 2 duo that is fanless, light, black and unbranded, with a pretty good battery, and for an extremely good price ...
the best analogy i have for the #pinebook pro is that it's like a really well-designed sports car taking after an older car, with its strengths and weaknesses
#pinebook is set up with Arch, Sway, etc. Not styled much. Happy I could fairly quickly bootstrap a system with Arch and configure everything, set it to autostart a window manager, bla bla without bricking the thing.
Also feel the RAM footprint should be lower, hmm
