Being an adult means putting as many oyster crackers as you want in your soup.

Is there an open standard for sharing book highlights like Amazon’s proprietary Kindle highlight-sharing system?

Everyone over on the bird site is talking about coming over here again. I hardly post on my main account there or here anymore, but β€œhi” to new/old followers, I guess? πŸ‘‹

We really need a #nixos install image with default configs for #peertube #mastodon #ipfs and others where a user simply picks a hosted, installs NixOS from said image and boots the machine and then automatically provides services for the #fediverse

Maybe that would be an idea for some sprint this summer?

I teach a class at NYU called Reading and Writing Electronic Text that is half introduction to Python, half introduction to computational poetry. the syllabus is here: and the tutorial/lecture notes are here: I've taught the class many times before, but this year I'm revising all the notes and porting everything to Python 3/Jupyter Notebook. I've also made entirely new tutorials on dictionaries, RNNs and keyword extraction. just wanted to share!

Thinking about tapping a sugar maple in our backyard for a small amount of syrup. 🍁

Does anyone here have good info on how long sap can be safely stored at various temperatures? We don’t have much freezer space or the time to fully process everything right away, so trying to think creatively before we give up on catching the last half of this season and just wait until next year.

On a mission to teach everyone how to play Pinochle the way my in-laws do.

Please direct your friends to or another instance of your choice like, or, etc. is "default" choice for a lot of people and it's getting kinda hammered right now.

Question for the room: would transporter technology revitalize small towns? Why or why not?

re: how to choose an instance, tbh I chose because (since it's the "flagship" instance) it seemed like it had the best chance of being around for a long time. is there a way for instances to signal their permanence? (given that there still aren't robust tools for migrating accounts, this seems important. and even then. migrating anything sucks)

or is permanence just not a feature of mastodon? (I'm okay if the answer to this is "yes")

I got so excited by all the new people that I forgot to say that I wrote a #knitting blog post! About how the knitting design process works for my quirky brain and my stitch patterns (some of which involve secret code, which is kind of quirky in its own right).

replace all instances of the word 'post' in your life with 'toot'. for example. tootpunk. tootmodern. lamptoot. washington toot. first past the toot. la toote. deutsche toot. united states tootal service.

I'm glad it's called a "toot" because it's a good hack to ensure that Mastodon never becomes cool
