hello, i'm phoebe. i live in nyc. i dont love computers but i do love talking to friends and strangers on the internet so it is an uneasy truce.
what i wrote in my bio is "i am a weird tech loser and artist. i enjoy contrarian ways of thinking about computers. i like plan 9, apl/k, forth, minimalism in technology, and maximalism in art" which is also true.
i put some of my art and writing on www.timeflayer.com which is my website.
i recently set my twitter account on fire and then drove it off of a cliff because a friend died and i started feeling uneasy about the relationships i was forming through manipulative corporations. i feel uneasy about mastodon, also, but merveilles.town is the one instance that seemed compelling to me so i am thankful to have received an invite. i look forward to meeting you all.
@dogstar welcome to town! From reading your bio/website it sounds like you'll be amongst likeminded folks.
Nice to meet a fellow livecoder 👋 If you have any question about the fedi, lemme know :) Sorry to hear about your friend.
@neauoire thank you! i really miss livecoding. i could do some more online performances, but the dynamic between performer and audience was always something i thought heavily about and i would miss that aspect of doing it online.
thanks for the welcome :)
@neauoire also i keep forgetting i put all the raytheon stuff on my site lol, i just was feeling quite a lot of angst about those aspects of the tech industry which tend to be overlooked a lot.
@dogstar welcome on fedi! Merveilles is the best place on fedi so you should be comfy. Happy to talk 9 stuff whenever :)
@julienxx ah totally! lately i have not had enough time or brain space to be on 9gridchan, but i have a few small projects i definitely want to work on over the holiday break
@eider i am ok i am waking up a bit here
to be honest i dont know if i understand the social implications of a bunch of people sharing my introductory post from a while ago but it makes me feel loved and appreciated so it is nice
how are you?
@dogstar good morning! Today I have returned to work after Christmas holiday so I’m a little bit sad... the life!
I didn’t know that your introductory post was from a while ago 😅
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.
