I wrote a nano tool that tries to extract the #Fediverse accounts of your #Twitter followings:

New version:

In the category of things that I historically kept off of Merveilles / Fediverse, I'm currently watching the Tottenham v. Leeds game, and this game is wild. Lets go spurs!

Wow, been wild to see all of the mastodon follows. I guess folks really are abandoning the bird site.

I've been in a bit of a creative rut since like February. What do you all do to get inspired, or at least reenergized to create?

So excited that I'll be attending "norns/habitus"! - I've never attended a class around making music before, so really curious how this will go. Plus it's at the Monome HQ!
