★ Emoji Log emojilog.rosano.ca

i've been using and developing this for a few months now and today i'm ready to share it with *you* :)

it's a personal tracker focused on frequency (read 'rhythm') rather than quantity, for noting things that are less quantifiable.

write journals, observe your habits, track statistics.

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.✌🏽

6. if you like to think or talk about these things, come to the swap next wednesday. will be talking with Gordon Brander (and maybe others) about files and portability. let's figure out how to build a new breed of decentralized apps chat.0data.app/t/37

5. what's the difference between protocols? i think @remotestorage for a more traditional technology stack; @fission for passwordless end-to-end encrypted and stored on ; / for storing as linked data to enable machine processing.

each has different approaches. the label encourages interoperability to make the pie larger for everyone.

4. at the moment, many apps seem to fit 'tools for individuals' better that 'collaborative, aggregated, multi-user'; funding patterns are not so obvious; but hopefully this will all be solved with time.

3. browser apps don't need a server for dynamic requests, static hosting is cheap and mirrorable. not requiring an identity enables apps. check out the growing set of over a hundred apps that employ these techniques 0data.app

2. apps obviate the need to build, secure, maintain account infrastructure; integrations are basically to read/write data; instead of network calls or REST, just `await` and the library will act on local or elsewhere.

1. i posted a twelve tweet thread on to better articulate benefits and trade-offs twitter.com/rosano/status/1441

might be too many for here so i'll just summarize:

hear ye: the wonderful @feditips is *not* automated, my bad. but of course, that's why it's a great account! follow to increase your fediwareness mstdn.social/@feditips/1069668

@neauoire @rek out of curiosity, was it a conscious decision to put patronage links only on certain github projects (like github.com/hundredrabbits/Orca) as opposed to everywhere?

some of my favourite ideas:

"[Creating connections is the core of being human—it’s so natural for children.]" — Alessandro

"[Prefer shared language over common ground.]" — Jeeva

"[Divided people may share smaller beliefs. People with similar conclusions may have surprisingly different values. A world where everyone agrees has no room for evolution. Unpack the belief into values and decisions to find common ground.]" — Jessica
