Screen reader stuff is going fairly well. It would be possible to do this with c2s, but instead I've just made an endpoint for the speaker, which is then very minimal.
I would suggest adding a #TTS endpoint to the #ActivityPub actor specification and something in activitystreams representing the fields returned from the endpoint.
So in #Epicton the TTS endpoint returns json containing a "say" field which is the text to be spoken. This can be specially prepared, such as replacing mentions with "mentions [name]" and other semantics. So the client side can also be minimal and doesn't need to do any processing on the received text.
An observation from 2019 recently uploaded. A Grey Baron (Euthalia anosia) spotted in Johor, Malaysia. A rare butterfly, it looks very different from the other Baron butterflies usually found in Singapore.

We can never win if we try to resist on the terms of these forces. On terms of slickness, network affect and viral growth.
What we have to do is begin conversations about how FOSS is inherently political, and how using it (when the communities around it are good and not toxic *pissed off stare at lots of FOSS communities*) can be an inherently political act of resistance.

I was going to keep it, temporarily, in a jar, but discovered that the poor thing was 'lost' and was laying eggs on the concrete. So I changed plans and took and placed it on the trunk of a nearby Puriri tree where the eggs might possibly survive.
I went back a little later with my scale ruler intending to measure the moth but found it gone.
Meanwhile the caterpillar brigade continues. I haven't collected any more eggs but the cuttings from the Swan plants that I use to feed the caterpillars must have eggs on them and from these I am still getting a smaller number of smaller caterpillars.
Here's the latest batch. They shed their skin five times between when they hatch from the egg until they form into a chrysalis, each such stage being called an instar so the adult butterfly is the eighth stage of development.
