Community built AXIOM Micro (small image sensor) development prototype will be demoed at Maker Faire Berlin next week.

ForgeFed is a project aiming to define a protocol and a vocabulary for federation of project hosting and collaboration platforms (forges), and get it implemented in the existing forges such as GitLab CE, Gitea and so on.
Federation is based on ActivityPub with some tweaks and new vocabulary :)
I'm working on a demo, implementing federation in a forge called Vervis. Earlier today I deployed 2 test instances for this! More details and links soon :)

I #amlistening to Avi Kaplan's latest production "Otherside". (I highly recommend you YouTube it.)
This guy is a master of the 'hollow space' - using just enough instrumentation to make the music feel a little hollow, where you fill the space up with your own emotion. A genius composer, really.
Did my first #urbex yesterday, exploring an old cement factory. It was so cool, I kept expecting The Law to show up and cause hassle, but nope! I felt like a STEALTH NINJA. I was not stealthy.
