There is currently an open call to participate in the Critical Coding Cookbook: Intersectional Feminist Approaches to Teaching and Learning

"We are seeking work that illustrates how to interrogate, deconstruct, and decolonize, the teaching and learning of code from an intersectional feminist lens. Contributions can take the form of assignments, activities, projects, code examples, collaborative tools, and/or case studies."

Example. A New York Times article saved with the gemini-like gmi reader theme. I also have Medium-style, GitHub-style and a few others in there, or you could add your own.

Made my own very simple archiving system on top of pandoc and readability, as an offiline, CLI alternative to products like Mozilla's Pocket. And with a different ethos: of building a personal library.

It's a very simple script wrapping around readability. Removes all ads, header, nav, footer, etc and saves a clean HTML article (with your choice or default CSS), as well as an epub file and markdown file.

has anyone rolled their own simple alternative to wallabag or Pocket?
Doesn''t need to work online (for me).

Ideally maybe it's a CLI script and all i do is have to run scriptname url.

pipeline idea: wget -> maybe use pandoc to convert to markdown and then add in a simple minimalist css and convert to epub?

Just came across this really cool art residency:

i'm preparing a couple of online and slow-paced workshops to experiment with and learn about computing within limits :tealheart:

one of them is about exploring the fundamentals of computing via movement-based activities (), and the other about learning to program the portable 8-bit computer.

they would span several weeks in order to allow for depth in the explorations.

which one would you be interested in joining?

(boosts are welcome :)

Short gemlog writeup about how to get statistics for number of readers on one's personal gemlog and the tilde server one's on, using a fish script.

It's way past my bedtime. Anyway, I wrote a gemlog statistics script in fish script (fish shell) for Ctrl-C Club

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
