Howdy I'm Drew. You can also call me proto. I am a nonbinary game development student who lives in the US northeast. I am a leftist but hate sectarianism. I love talking to people about their interests and my current interests include: generative art, architecture, experimental games, politics and philosophy, and cooking.

I've been on fedi for about 4-5 years under various accounts. This is where I will post my current projects, thoughts, etc. Hope to see ya around!

Would you, or somebody you know on the Fediverse, be experienced in and interested in working on a explainer-style video with #Owncast? You know the type. High level, fun, animated, approachable, shareable. This is a paid project!

I'd rather work with somebody on the Fediverse than head over to freelancer websites.

Starting from scratch on this, so you'd help come up with ideas as well as execute on the video. If you could, please share with somebody you know who does this kind of work.

One of the most damaging impacts of social media and the internet in general is that we've completely devalued the concepts of study and experience in nearly every topic and replaced them with a 30 second review of something read online and calling it "research" and "facts."

The previous toot is for Bespoke Synth.
"Bespoke is a software modular synthesizer. It contains a bunch of modules, which you can connect together to create sounds."

(My previous experience with trying to use software such as this is that I like it in theory and never do in practice, so take it all with a grain of salt. I like to turn knobs and play on a physical keyboard, and even there I just dabble.)

"Even if it didn't work, the fact that someone could have designed a vaccine, and contracted a company to manufacture that vaccine in June 2020 for under $5k is fucking profound — and that is what I felt people needed to know."

"At The Odin, we sell kits to teach people how to do hands-on molecular biology and genetic engineering in their homes. This is our mission: we believe everyone has a right to learn about and practice science.."

I did it! My game Toys On Fire is finally done (although I might update it of course) and released. You can get it for free on itch.io: chocomintsoftworks.itch.io/toy

There's also a paid option that gets you all the meshes and textures i made myself (for this game), and you can use them however you like!

App idea that is an icon pack generator using icons from places like awesome remix and allows you to customize the styling
