Between 2 and 2.5 years ago, depending on whether you look at medium.com/we-distribute/faces or dustycloud.org/blog/spritely/ I announced the Spritely project. I hedgingly joked while asked to describe it that it's "well, vaporware, mostly".

With the upcoming release of Goblins and its support for real distributed programming (on a mutually suspicious network, even) we'll be approaching the point where it'll be fair to say that Spritely is very much so *not* vaporware, is demonstrably interesting

Friends: "Chris we know you're getting into this ocaps thing but we love you and care about you we want you to be safe"
Me: "Don't worry, I can manage myself just fine"
*later*:

mild swearing, proprietary software 

I love the companies selling proprietary software like to find new ways for me to want to avoid their products.... (also, what the literal fuck, Autodesk?)

I'm nervous that a bunch of stuff is going to be adopted on the fediverse that breaks the underlying paradigm while still not providing the protection we need soon enough.

But I'm also worried that I can't manage to explain my alternative proposal fast enough. :(

I feel like that about a number of things right now; prioritizing is hard. But I guess this really probably is fairly urgent right now.

There's a new episode of @librelounge out where we interview Ludovic Courtès about Guix! Functional programming? Functional package managers? Distros? Reproducibility? It has all the cool things! librelounge.org/episodes/episo

Vox is on strike today- they're trying to unionize! ✊

As a result, consuming media today from Vox, The Verge, or Polygon constitutes breaking a picket line.

Hello friends, I have decided to abandon this account - you can now find me here: @mooncube

The reason is that I no longer feel comfortable with this alias and its ableistic nuances, as discussed here: mastodon.social/@acrazymind/10

It was a tough call because I lose all my followers and posts, but its worth it. Follow my new acc if you want to see more of my work, and please boost for visibility if you can. Thank you, love you all. ❤️

copyleft conf just clarified that sponsors are not endorsements including of things like proprietary software so fyi to folks like @wolftune who said they'd like to hear that
