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 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 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 well, most people on here will echo these same sentiments toward modern tech. It's a bit of a bubble here where everyone's wiki will have at least one diss page on javascript.


@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

@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 😅
