It's been two weeks at Purism
and it's still surreal that it's my *job* now to work on GNOME
design.

Жалко, что это только концепт. Эх, ностальгия.. 😭

Getting ready to go on first this morning. Got thoroughly rained on so I might look a little soggy on stage 😩

the design of twitter & other follow-boost services like tumblr or mastodon is fundamentally untenable and will always create conflict on such scales that people will feel like their only response is violence

Want to help make #Fediverse (#Mastodon) more useful for new people interested in #OpenStreetMap?

The #Trunk is several lists of people who post about a topic here on the fediverse. It's a good way for new people to get started by finding people who share their interest.

And now there's a list for OpenStreetMap folk! 🙂 If you toot a lot about #OSM and would like to help new people, request to be added to the list. Or use it to find other OSMers to follow.

Three people worth following and interacting with on any Mastodon instance are...

Thanks for helping me grow my world here.

Just made another post to my blog. This time I talk about networks of trust, federation, and anti-harassment.

Purism posted a blogpost about "User empowerment is the best tool to curb online harassment" puri.sm/posts/curbing-harassme

It cites OcapPub (which I've been working on), and it's a bit awkward because I agree with the *title*, and *some* of the gist of the body, but I've been uncomfortable with how Purism has handled abuse stuff historically, and there are some important things in the article I don't agree with either. So here's a thread with some of my thoughts. (Sorry it's mostly bullet points.)

⚠️ WE SHIPPED IT! 🎉

You can now follow remote profiles on Pixelfed instances that have enabled the feature.

1. Search the full url (ie: mastodon.social/@pixelfed)

2. Click the follow button on the results page

3. You will start seeing posts from that account on your home timeline

I just submitted the first release of Contrast to Flathub! It's a beautifully designed app to check the contrast ratio between two colors made with GTK & Rust by the GNOME Design Tooling team.🎉🥳
