Whee. New paper. A somewhat critical look at my FAIMS mobile app via an experiment in ceramic recording.
Happy to announce a preprint for my just-accepted paper: "FAIMS Mobile: Flexible, open-source software for field research" https://osf.io/ahf8q/
#introductions Hi, I'm Dr. Brian. I do Philosophy of Data, build apps for archaeologists (field data collection while offline with a bunch of androids), Data ... manipulation stuff.
On the weekends, I record for my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgK3Tn1N6oMG4r0QUypYcTQ where I do rather long-form and quite philosophical Let's Plays of various games.
I feel very strongly about good coffee, I occasionally cook, and like to think about (and explore the thinking of) most well-phrased topics.
the 'retweet without comment'?
You cannot ride it.
You cannot harness it.
It can never be a "thou".
good flat stone

Near as I can tell, Mastodon is like 80% trans femmes and 20% tech early-adopters.
I wonder, is this what the early stages of all new social networks will look like?

I am particularly fond of seeing accounts that tried the fediverse out in the past but then went silent come back.
I enjoy seeing new users, too, but seeing someone come back to give the 'verse another try feels like a bigger win, like there's something so compelling here that it lingers in peoples' subconscious or something.
So, if you were here, left, and now lurk, don't be afraid to chime in once in a while - I'm glad you're here, and I know I'm not alone.
Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
Also looking for more lists. 😃
For people who have friends that are hesitant to join the Fediverse but still want to see what you post on here: it might be useful to suggest following your profile's RSS feed.
I can't imagine that the intersection of people comfortable with RSS but not with having an account here would be too great, but it's worth a shot IMO.
Take me down to the paradox city where the grass is green and the grass isn’t green
Oh man, Bud. This shirt is *perfect* on you.
Oh no, another tipping point tonight.
I responded to a friend faster on Matodon because there was less chaff than on twitter between now and when I last logged on by a factor of 10.
So this was a coffee rub'd steak. I went a bit heavy on the rub (which really didn't taste of coffee at all) and so it was a touch too salty. But excellent and an interesting paprika/salt rub.
coffee, raw steak Show more
Well, it's an experiment. I think I need to grind the coffee much finer.
To pile anathema on top of abomination: I'm now preparing a coffee rub for steak before sous vide.
this dungeon synth genre-thing is like a dream come true, fantastic
It followed me home. Can I keep it, me?
