whats the most inspiring team you've ever worked on/with? what made it inspiring?

recorded a bop for what will likely be my only participation of - its a single take so i think it counts as a jam haha


@vortex_egg I keep mine separate. And use the private notes for anything. If something crystalizes, I almost surely need to edit it and reformat for a general audience. At minimum just proof read for grammar lol. But I feel like the clean separation is worth it to know, for sure, when something is going to be public

@neauoire do y'all know where you'll go next? I'd love to hand deliver a present if you stop in the bay!!! Or go for a bike ride 🚲

@irimi1 i found the history of interlingua really interesting when i first discovered conlangs and for some reason still laugh when people make lojban speakers the butt of jokes πŸ™ˆ

i notice a lot of interest in toki pona. as a linguist, i've studied some conlangs and have always had an interest in the general sense. toki pona, however, hasn't stood out to me like it does to some people. does anyone have any longer form writing they'd recommend on "why toki pona" or something similar? i'd love to know more motivations for why ppl are into it and want to use it

@dogstar not positive! i haven't done it previously. i was reading about drew devault's involvement with knight os and it got me thinking. i think it specifically works with ti83 so that might be a huge head start!



@neauoire i'd love that. it would increase my orca usage by 100x. i'm feeling inspired by trash80's m8 youtube.com/watch?v=DCFJ-3QfqZ

I could not stop thinking about orca on a ti89 last night πŸ˜‚ sounds like... waaay too much fun?

@chotrin @rek I've seen mwY like three times and always have such a blast. I didn't know that they were doing a finale thing!

I had tickets to see deafheaven when the pandemic started, I was really really looking forward to it. I think they're still who I want to see most next

@rostiger I have this sentiment exactly. I tried really hard to get people on matrix early on but it was far too cumbersome, I had literally zero traction. In contrast signal was easy to get at least some traction to switch. But then on days like today, it makes me feel dumb since technically better options exist (I guess I'm still thinking of matrix) - but if you can't get the people you'd like to chat with to use it, it feels kind of like a lost cause sometimes.

@mohemohe I seriously go OFF in these comment boxes everytime. Like most explicit writing of the week usually.

@ice its amazingly easy to treat yourself worse than you treat others. i was giving myself a hard time about something and someone remarked to me - you would give anyone else some grace in this scenario, why do you hold yourself to such a different standard?

@neauoire nice, just read through. I had not heard of disaster.radio before - their usage of LoRa is interesting github.com/sudomesh/disaster-r

@dualhammers sorry I forgot to reset it πŸ˜¬πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ!
