This is Wendy Carlos, who is a composer and one of the pioneers of electronic music.
She was involved in the development of the Moog Synthesizer and helped to establish the Synthesizer as a proper musical instrument in the public eye.
Her most wildly known works are her soundtracks for the Stanley Kubrick's films "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Shining".
As you can tell from the pictures she's not only a huge nerd but also very fond of cats. #transhistory

🇫🇷 Comme certain·es d'entre vous m'ont demandé s'il était possible de soutenir mammouth.cafe, j'ai créé un compte Liberapay. Mais ne vous sentez pas obligé·e de payer quoi que ce soit! Je puis me permettre ce passe-temps pour le moment.

Mastodon protip : if you have Mastodon accounts you don't use, make them private.
This will help people to not be confused when auto-completing on your name.
I'm seeing a few families that have setup their own Mastodon instance
This is a great alternative to Facebook and something I hadn't considered before. You can now keep tabs on your family and close via their own social network
I just discovered something interesting. If I hit reply to a toot, it's the time at which I do that that counts as the time I made the toot, and not when the toot actually sends (when I hit the TOOT button).
