Re-launching my personal wiki with more content and a slightly better layout: rosano.hmm.garden

I decided to try also publishing some unfinished / in-progress pages so that the reader sees how it's under construction. Would love any feedback on how that feels and whether it's useful or not.

About 50 public pages so far.

Hello/Bonjour/Hola 🙂

Rosano here, mesmerized to meet you all.

My home base is Montreal, but I travel often.

I usually say I work at the intersection of music, design, and technology. After making my own iOS apps for almost a decade, I now find myself drawn towards the open web and federated systems. I have experience with the piano, drums, and a little Ableton. I learn languages to meet new people.

Super excited to collide with the particles in this glorious kaleidoscope.✌🏽

I spontaneously decided to record a follow-up video demonstrating the funding button used in my apps. It goes into technical detail of all the parts and how it works together. Need to turn this into a larger document.

– Where’s your easy-to-use, plug-and-play, ethical alternative to these toxic trillion-dollar products?

– Thanks for asking. We’ve been paying out of pocket for years to work on it. Fancy giving us a few million to speed it up?

– No.

– How about a few thousand so we don’t starve?

– No.

– So, is it ready yet?

Interesting idea for when you want to let serendipity do the driving:

> 17. Data Bento Box
> An app that downloads data from various sources online to fill 1 gigabyte of data (reddit, blog posts, articles, free books), implements a viewer and always gives you something to read while you’re offline.

hypothesis: by filtering out posts on social media that conspicuously incorporate the word "y'all", you can eliminate a huge chunk of content that's not worthwhile

Really looking forward to hanging with @bmann and @fission on January 14, 02021, talking about , @remotestorage, my note-taking app, funding projects, other stuff.

Thanks @rosano & @neauoire for discussion on what to do about company accounts on masto social.coop/@bmann/10541376195

Will experiment with this account, which is just another instance of @bmann pushing buttons :)

@bmann Just got a surprise email from PayPal which made my Sunday. Means a great deal to me coming from you. Ya'll are for real. Thank you. Let's move forward together.

Indigenous people from modern day Canada and Alaska invented the first sunglasses. The oldest pair known dates back to the year 1200. They work by limiting the amount of sunlight that hits your eyes, preventing snow blindness.
