Hey folks working on #Fediverse projects like #Mastodon, #PixelFed, #WriteAs: I'm a writer who's spent 20 years writing blog posts, documentation, product copy, social media, and a little UX writing for a variety of orgs large and small.

Recent work involves the Bear notes app, previously: 1Password.

I can't contribute as a dev, but I can definitely help write, edit, or just polish your user-facing comms.

Can anyone help get this in front of relevant folks? Or point out how I can reach them?

I can't move to the Fediverse properly until I reproduce my famous pinned post from the birdsite, so here it is:

P.S.A. To all vintage computer and video game collectors:

Go through your collections and GET THE DAMN BATTERIES OUT!

Now! Don't wait! Seriously, put down the phone, go to your collection and take out all the batteries. Right now! Even if they look "okay" they are NOT SAFE after this much time.

Linux people, I am hiring systems administrators! We work with scientific data, containers, big-ass tape libraries, supercomputers, and everything in between. We pay relocation, and you'd even get an actual honest-to-god pension.

I really can't say enough nice things about the kit. It was way easier to put together than the radio kits I'd been working on, the documentation was great, and the creator reached out to help me troubleshoot issues I had (user error) and was super helpful.

Question from my young colleague: How do you connect to at Linux server over serial console?

Me: Haven't done that for at least 15 years.

Me ... googles in silence ...

Me: Ohhh, just use screen(1) 'screen /dev/ttyS0 9600' or something.
