019: community essence • thirty-three • going

reflecting on the difference between community and its digital representations

Pinned post

Re-launching my personal wiki with more content and a slightly better layout:

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.✌🏽

eager to chat with vidhika next week about the thing you're reading this toot on… abundance, connectedness, interface design, culture shifts, the water we're swimming in… if you wonder about any of that, come join us and share your perspective

@rosano it'd be cool if other folx from merveilles & merv-adjacent instances drop by and talk & show a bit about stuff they're working on 🎃

(if anything it's a great external deadline to get that thing you want to do to *some* state of completion :^)

going to be in montreal october 19—24, hit me up if you're around 🙂

I've made an alternative frontend to Medium:

If you, like me, are occasionally forced to read articles on, now you can read them on Scribe instead! Feedback welcome.

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
