Potential logo idea. Scuzzy M made out of paint strips signifying the no-nonsense DIY ethic and a minimalistic attitude.

Any thoughts?

I was looking at TiddlyWiki[1] instead of Zim[2], but it's all Javascript and I hate Javascript.

Also looked at Obsidian[3] and although it's nice and smooth and fast and smart, it's not open enough for me.

Good stuff.

I have the beginnings of a desktop wiki using Zim. Which should be a great resource.

I'm going to empty my head into it, work on it a lot and then upload it online when I feel it has reached a sufficient state that I feel it might be useful to other people, I'll export to HTML and upload it for all to use.

This looks really interesting.

NoiseCraft: node-based visual programming language, loosely inspired by Max/MSP and PureData. The main goal of this project is to provide a way for people to explore musical ideas.

GPL-2.0 license

Does anybody have examples of community world-building on permissive licenses that the community can then use to build games, stories, music, products from?

I'm talking about things like Orion's Arm[1] except with less restrictive copyright.


Until I know enough to brew my own, I can power my external brain-library with ZIM WIKI.

Added bonus of it being able to export to plain HTML files that I can then colour in with CSS and call it an online digital garden thing.

Increasingly of the opinion that modern software developer culture is just high salaries and conspicuous consumption.

Bring back the doing funky things with computers part dangit.

Plan for today:
- chapter 5 of my Python book
- sit in sun and drink coffee
- read my sailboat magazines
- visit friends in the middle of nowhere
- eat drink and be merry

I think I'm gonna need a wiki / memex.

One that works offline as well as online.


Old colleagues I know are doing this. A wonderful idea.

I'm looking for a small piece of musical software that could be used to create little tunes and noises for 8-32 bit video games.

Nothing as complex as a DAW, but something open source, straightforward and can complement and

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Calm technology. We need technological help to grow tempeh in places where the climate is not suitable for its growth. The idea of our fermenter is to mimic the Indonesian climate to produce plant-based protein food using local beans, to cooperate with nature and help it to help us. But the technology for our device doesn't need to be intrusive, connected to the internet, track our habits or consume more energy than it actually needs. It just needs to produce heat according to what the growth of the mycelium requires. Only a few components are needed. A few components that we can understand, repair and improve if necessary. A few components that reconcile open-source technology with citizens and our food production. We like to call it calm technology.

I currently live about 30 metres from the river. It is part of my life. I feel better, calmer and more at peace when I walk / sit by it.

Everybody should have a body of water to be calm near.

This morning was full of the smells of grinding coffee and toasting bagels. Mixes with the smells from the flowers in the garden for a truly delightful experience.

If anyone missed it last night, I've launched a BBS (yes, an old-school BBS, text interface, you access it via telnet) to act as a chill social hangout for #trans folk.

Since it just went live, it's very small, but if we can grow it into a cozy little community, I think it could be pretty great.

If you're interested in the details, contact me directly.

Boosts are also appreciated!

Drinking a light ale in the sun on a wharf watching boats go back and forth. In the middle of a city.

Thinking of a new logo.

Yes, it's a minimal M.

Is there something really obvious I'm missing from this that might be incredibly offensive to somebody?

I need to update my coding skills. There's things I need to do.

Going to start with this. I need a bit of a refresher, plus some more detail. Gonna work through this.
