📣 Telephant, a Mastodon client for the desktop is looking for packagers!

Know how to package for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint, Gentoo, OpenSUSE, Void or other distros? Or maybe you are familiar with AppImage, Snap or Flatpak?

We're still looking for packagers to help supporting Telephant on more platforms!

Don't hesitate to say hello if you'd like to help out! ❤️

As the appimage of @joplinapp does not work on MXLinux because of sandbox issues, will there be a flatpak version? (Beaker Browser also has this issue)

Actually, arguments in favour of "economy of form" which demand that media such as albums, films, books not "waste the audience's time" buys into the commodification of every aspect of existence by capitalism. Art should not subscribe to this commodification: it should resist it. So fill your novels with as many digressions, your movies with as many lingering shots and unnecessary scenes, your albums with as much filler as you feel like doing. I will be happy to waste that time with you.

I'm curious. Does anyone else read scientific papers for pleasure? (Boosts wanted.)

the American Mathematical Society just published a free ebook called Living Proof, a collection of mathematicians recounting their often turbulent paths to where they are now. i've read a few of the stories and i think this is an amazing read, not just for scholars of math, but for anyone who is doing something where they simply don't feel "smart enough" to succeed. success is often made up of struggle and failure; this can be difficult to remember in our current times.
