Pinned toot

I’d always felt I was lacking in foundational knowledge and skill in programming, but I keep coming back to it, both in work and as a practice, and I want to let go of deep-seated fears that I don’t know enough, or I can’t do enough, including the fear of people finding out I don’t know x, y, and z. Not knowing is not a bad thing, and learning when (and how) to ask for help is an even better thing.

So these are things I am currently learning, and re-learning. Hello! 👋

@knights Living off the grid, with off the shelf tools, while documenting everything.

Thinking about living an open source life — what would that mean for you and how would you live it?

Gentle reminder that you don’t have to do all the cool things if you don’t have the mental bandwidth or the time to do it!

Had to do this when I noticed David Mitchell playing a cop in Peppa Pig

Usability always, always, always comes before aesthetic

boost if you sometimes feel like you have zero skills

How does everyone deal with getting too overwhelmed with a large open source codebase, if you need to go in and make changes?

sorry can't tell you my gender i only know the sha-256 hash of it

Hey Fedifriends! :tealheart:

I'm running a short research survey on Mastodon usage for a graduation paper on alternative social networks. Your input will hopefully help me introduce new concepts to media studies in Poland.

Please fill this survey and share with your friends, especially if you know some scholars involved in this topic!

thinkin about ghost plants

Monotropa uniflora - it grows white and can grow in darkness cause its a PARASITE and it uses fungus in the soil as a host to receive nutrients because it does not do photosynthesis on its own

Made some matcha beer! Directions from here: tastingtable.com/cook/recipes/

“Sift the matcha into a small bowl to remove any clumps. Add 2 ounces of the rice lager and gently whisk using a chasen (matcha whisk) until foamy, about 30 seconds.”

Very excited to start my artist/technologist residency at IRL:

“IRL brings together art + tech to develop novel methods of facilitating community connection and momentum building that prioritize those experiencing the greatest risk of exclusion when technology becomes the only source of connection.”

My #music collection is embarrassingly dominated by white cishet dudes. Being into electronic music doesn’t help for some reason.

So please share your favourite PoC and/or women and/or queer musicians pretty please!

Extra points if #CreativeCommons (NB: I still pay for CC music if I have the option).

Today ( #Juneteenth), Bandcamp is giving their share to #NAACP. So if it’s on Bandcamp, extra extra point.

Boost encouraged! 💚
