I think I figured out how to discover my smart water bottle over BLE, now to see if I can read the data.

I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool gath.io

The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

For people looking for an alternative to Facebook events that isn't spammy like evite and the like, I recommend checking out gath.io

It requires no login, basically you provide an email address, you get a unique editing URL, you make a nice looking event form, and people can RSVP there. Your event and all related info is deleted from their DB 2 weeks after the event is over.

Small Instance Community Tools 

I'm not releasing the code publicly yet but I've written a tool that lets ANY user of this instance direct message EVERY OTHER user of this instance through a proxy account (so people can block the proxy if they want).

Why would we want this? Friend Camp is a small (70 person, 40 active) invite-only instance of people who trust each other. We like to organize events (book clubs, etc) but not everyone sees everything. So this is for doing that kind of thing.

I bothered the cat and she was like “yes? Do you want something?”

What more fitting way to name a robotics team than to give the task to a neural net? This one was trained on 6k names from FIRST robotics.

Definitely don't mess with team WALKS THE MEATS.
