Saluton! My name is Flip, I slap a keyboard until interesting things happen
I am learning Esperanto (for only about a year now), I play and DM tabletop roleplaying games, I'm the good kind of anarchist, I fiddle with old hardware, and I dream of retiring as a cactus farmer
I think art should be shared as it’s created... for example, if a chapter of a book is finished, put it out into the world. You might never finish the book, but at least you’ve finished something. It’s not like it’s accumulating meaning while it waits for the rest of the supposed novel. If it relies on the context of the rest of the novel, is it even a meaningful chapter?
I've had the whole von Braun/NASA thing on my mind lately for various reasons
I feel strongly that we are responsible for the costs of making what we make and for the ways in which the things we make are used
I also feel strongly that repentance, in general, has real value... it cannot excuse or undo and should not be attached to trust, but it is meaningful
I don't know if anyone will find this interesting, but here are some things I've made recently at work:
Thinger that takes a zipcode and tells you the time and channel to watch a given show in ~25ms
Another thinger that essentially has all the tools you need to handle running sweepstakes (so like a validated poll with winners) replacing a SaaS we had used. Handles >1MM requests per minute without any data loss which was interesting because it talks to vendor APIs which are latent
HEY ARTISTS and general people who are looking for creative opportunities -->
i'm sharing what might be my life's work, which is a spreadsheet of almost 400 places that hold regular open calls for residencies, shows, and funding
y'all deserve this and we gotta take care of each other. apply to things and get that support:
I’ve never enjoyed a play that wasn't performed in a space roughly equivalent to this one
I still don't know what to make of Caroline Shaw, but I reckon that means I'm enjoying her work
Of everything that made the belonging crisis possible, I suspect the abundance of opportunities to walk away is the crux
If you don't like what someone says, you block their account, block their number, and you don't see them anymore anyway, so ten years of friendship is simply over
It's a good option to have, but it means we need to more deeply commit to others or accept our loneliness
The account of the Assam Police has been suspend from this instance.
We decided that we will not welcome cops on this instance, and we encourage the rest of the fediverse to do the same.
Following multiple reports, we decided that it's more important that our community feels safe and in security, than to be a platform for official communication.
Thank you !
