Pinned toot

I also hang around on @scribe for more ... 'philosophical' matters, and testing out the photo fediverse at (which may or may not be federated yet - it's a Mastodon fork, I believe)

Hello new followers. This account seems to be becoming my account for incoming Twitter transfers. But I'm also available at @6gain if you want to complete the set.

Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

Hi fediverse. Any suggestions for a tablet which is any/all of...

* Hacakable - able to run an open source OS (LineageOS?)
* Likely to be supported for another few years
* Fairly cheap (2nd hand is OK)
* Ethically sourced materials

Want something I can just read RSS feeds on, basically, without the guff.

First up... we need a CTO for #NHSX. This person and their team will get to define and deliver the technical architecture for the NHS and social care.

The new CTO will also oversee NHSX’s engineering, skunkworks and infrastructure work.


From July, #NHSX will mandate internationally recognised technology & data standards across the NHS—so that all systems can talk to each other.

This initially includes SNOMED-CT, ICD-10, HTML5 & WCAG 2.1 AA

Every project developed in the NHS will be released as #opensource


Status update.

Mood: Focused. Changing the fundamentals.

Comic book: Tommy Taylor - The Ship that Sank Twice, by Mike Carey
Story game: Oxenfree
Light game: Mario Kart 8

Boxes about 18 years apart, but finally bought an expansion pack for Carcassonne yesterday.

Anyone know of a good alternative to Google Sheets for collaboratively editing data rows, and with an API? Maybe free/oss if possible?

Oh yeah, I'm in London tomorrow, if anyone fancies a post-lunch coffee.

I'm getting a lot more out of deeper thought these days (and, well, back before Twitter was a thing). Long walks, leading to long blog posts and slower, more considered discussion.

Caught between signing up for interesting-looking Mastodon instances, and listening/posting on Mastodon generally. I still not sure about a stream of scattered thoughts, and brief, phone-based interaction.

What links should every dev team read and absorb on developing accessibility?

RT Seriously folx, if you know any marginalized authors who need maps for their books, send them my way.

Mapmaking is a passion of mine and I want to help other authors have their vision become a reality.


One of the reasons I'm here (and I'm sure it's been expressed before by others here) is bc of the social politics involved on other sites. The "Numbers Game". Value by proxy (which can certainly lead to abuse by proxy). Branding > Community in regards to activism and advocacy. The dislike for others' self talk on the timeline as they work through thoughts and memories...

Being pressured into joining WhatsApp for community purposes. There's just no other civic infrastructure sometimes.
Out of interest, are there any 'civic hackers' who know how WhatsApp, Facebook, etc work in terms of privacy, that would be willing to have an online conversation with those curious? 🤔📴

A note on daily #tarot pulls. These are designed to help you consider your situation in new ways or to shed light on energy that is at play in your situation. These are general and not meant to resonate with every person at all times - but if you find that a pull speaks to you, make sure that you're embracing and receiving that advice so you can use your free will to take advantage of what will move you forward and release or prevent what might hold you back. Love, you have the power.
