Pinned toot

I’ve only just realised that I forgot to do a proper when I first joined this instance, so here goes!
I’m Tom! I am originally from Japan, and come from a visual arts and performance background. I’m currently teaching as a high school teacher in Aotearoa, NZ.

Lately I have found a lot of inspiration from people involved in communities such as this one, and have been working on small web projects in my spare time. Thank you for having me!

And the Time page is online, have a look!

Now I can rest... before starting new improvements on Rombun. The ride never ends. :sadlinux:

Spent the day today making resources and preparing content for teaching. Always good not having to rush things through!

It makes me sad how hierarchical we are. The linear nature with which we perceive time is a real fucker

Starting a new position as a design teacher in a few weeks time. Nervous but also very excited!

When summer comes (and it's hot) it's time to clean your fans. Or else it might catch fire while building some Rust project.

Since this meme is now a thing I'll take profit of It since It features the wolrd's smallest computer! :)

It simply is incredible we can consentrate this much technology into something so small, It just shows how much we've evolved over time compared to having big devices to now smaller and more compact ones!

The computers when first created where so huge they'd take the space of the rooms while this one is dwarfed by rice, what a progression! :D

Completed the first draft of a new game, Waves, presented as an eight panel zine

I just tried to write "integrable" while distracted and birthed this abomination.

Got myself a vegetable cleaver today after months of using knives that were a bit too small for me. Looking forward to having a big cook up!!

Very excited to start my artist/technologist residency at IRL:

“IRL brings together art + tech to develop novel methods of facilitating community connection and momentum building that prioritize those experiencing the greatest risk of exclusion when technology becomes the only source of connection.”

It's up, re-did the website with a generator written in C89. Was only able to fix things because of the help and support of this community. Thank you so much!

I went for a very minimal website. Some sections are still empty, but they'll fill soon enough! If you have any suggestions about how I can improve, please don't hesitate to send them over!

All my coolest friends live in my computer.
