Pinned toot

Nice to meet you! My name is Gueorgui, and I'm a photographer, designer, and engineer living and working in London, UK after living in Russia, France, Germany, and Japan.

In my work life, I'm running a tiny creative studio called A Possible Space (a.possible.space) together with my wife.

I'm interested in the intersections of art, tech, society, and in working for an ethical, sustainable future.

Fediverse: I (the whitest, cishet-est person imaginable) have been unexpectedly put on the diversity & inclusion team at $dayjob. Our task is to make recommendations to the bosses and the board on how to improve our practices and make our workplace more welcoming for everyone.

I want to use this platform to do an excellent job. So please help me! What resources should I be looking at, what best practices are there, who should I talk with? This is in the UK if this matters at all.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) again, @Tingyi will be running an art therapy session on Zoom, from 15:00 to 16:00 London time. Come join and take some time for yourself — we don’t often get the chance to do that. No art skills necessary, total beginners welcome, any art materials are fine (pen and paper too!)

"And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge."

Hey Merveilles, what headphones do you recommend? My requirements are: have to be comfortable with glasses (so can’t be on-ear headphones), can’t be earbuds (as these irritate my ears), must have a decent microphone for calls, and I would prefer wired over wireless as I don’t want to have to worry about battery life. Noise cancellation is good, but not a must.

I notice that I don't use layers 1 and 2 of my Ergodox so much — basically only layer 1 for brackets/curly braces. Ergodox users of the fediverse, what do you use your layers for?

My laptop (a Lenovo Thinkpad) started developing some problems that might be hardware related, so I emailed Lenovo about it.

They were like, "we're so sorry that because of COVID19 we can't send an engineer over to look at your laptop and replace parts, would it be ok if we arrange a fedex pickup to bring it to our repair facilities instead, and have it back with you in a couple of days?"

Me, after 14 years of apple "genius" bar "appointments": "I... I suppose that will have to do."

😂

If you’re feeling a bit weird in this weird weird world we’re living in, why not join an art therapy session ran by @Tingyi this Wednesday, and take some time to get in touch with what’s going on with *you*? It’s free of charge, and it’ll happen from 15:00 to 16:00 London time. Everyone is welcome!

Alright, I paid for Hey. It’s not FOSS and it is costly, but this is the kind of product I want to see more of, and I’m happy to support the v1! I’m at gueorgui@hey.com if you wanna reach me ✌🏻

Dressed up with @gueorgui for Alice Sara Ott’s Nightfall concert🎹💓and watched it .. at home on our iPad! Thanks to the pandemic that saved us the tickets to Berlin and the accommodation😅

I only have a few days left on my hey.com trial, and I think I will end up paying for it. I really like how the app feels, how responsive it is, and the thoughtfulness of the features.

Also, I spent some time looking at the frontend code (it's all sourcemapped and easily accessible) and I'm super impressed by the quality and simplicity.

It's really great to see a commercial project of such quality, although it *is* closed source.

Two sets of stacked windows side by side is the only way to use i3.

`workspace_layout stacking` ftw.
