i'm exploring mastodon as my social media journey continues. i really dig the social and technological implications of mastodon and want to join the community =)

the voting for the "V" release of openstack is now open[0], i am so excited by the possibility that the next release will be "OpenStack Volcano" XD

just saw this, it's a binary release of vscode without the microsoft branding, telemetry, and licensing.

i'm not a huge vscode user, but i'll check it out again.

Imagine if Amazon was run as a cooperative, and the money generated by the workers went to them instead. Amazon could literally hire 10 times as many people, and have each employee work 1/2 a day a week while getting the same salary they get now. The only reason that's not happening is because a guy named Jeff takes the lion share of the profits.

HEY ARTISTS and general people who are looking for creative opportunities -->

i'm sharing what might be my life's work, which is a spreadsheet of almost 400 places that hold regular open calls for residencies, shows, and funding

On Saturday 23rd November, in #Zagreb, #Croatia, I'll be leading a #free #workshop on #livecoding #audio in the #C #programming language using #Clive. Note that clive does not work on Windows or Mac.

clive is a C audio live-coding skeleton. It allows you to #hotswap #DSP processing callbacks, providing not much more than automatic C #code recompilation, object code reloading, and state preservation.

The workshop will work on dependencies installation, basics of sysadmining and git, CLI, define DSP and examples similar to clive, sound synthesis and feedback, shaping sounds and a live performance preparation.

The workshop is conducted in English language.

To participate, you need to bring your own (GNU/Linux OS) laptop, and (optional) headphones.

Applications (open until Nov 20th 23:59CET): email hello at

hey, i probably should have an #introduction so that people know something about me, since i mostly toot followers-only and try to limit my boosts (hence the lack of visible toots)

if you follow me, you're likely to see me rambling about social media/#fediverse meta, vague musings about anticapitalism and anarchist proposals, some pics of my trips, and some small bits and bats about my daily life.

i love talking to people, so i reply a lot 💛 don't hesitate to reply to me, either!

I had some left-over switches from the keyboard, so I made a FeatherWing (a shield for the Adafruit Feather boards) with three keys — since the Feather boards can emulate HID device, you could use that to make some macro mini-keyboard for yourself.

I’m writing an article on the subject, but as a blind guy, I’m getting really really tired of people speaking for me. If you do accessibility or UX and really want to know what I want, or “need”, or what works best for me, then ask me.
