Runs the function that calls some code: program hangs, have to ctrl-c.

And to be clear I am still super excited about ActivityPub and the Fediverse! There's definitely a future where I do more ActivityPub projects. Just not right now - first I gotta see where this database thing takes me.

So it's been a while since I've been on the Fediverse. I stopped working on Pterotype - some combination of burnout, not managing expectations and getting really tired of writing PHP. And I was embarrassed about that. I had spent so much time talking up the projec that it felt like it had just become my Fediverse identity.

So that's that. But I'm going to give it another shot. I'm not working on Pterotype anymore! I've moved on to something new: I'm building a database! Intro here:

Spent several hours today watching Rich Hickey fix databases ( And now I'm implementing a Datomic-like immutable RDF store on top of SQL so that I can use it in ActivityPub-PHP... I think I've learned more about cool corners of computer science in the months I've been working on this project than I did during my whole CS degree!
