Pinned toot

Hello! My name is Ish. I'm an independent app developer who's been working on iOS apps since early 2010. I live in Southern California, but I'm on east coast time. I'm mostly extroverted, but I'm terrified of public speaking. Happy to join the resistance. Wait... is this the right instance?

Oh, so I'm starting to collect a list of people who might be interested in a native Mac tootclient...

Feel free to toot'n'boost this.

My 5yo: “How long until we get there?”
Me: 1 hour and 20 min
Her: In kid language please
Me: One My Little Pony movie
Her: Oh ok.

Going to a wedding today and not bringing my MacBook Pro. I’m going to go over 36 hours without working. This is a big step.

When I was a kid there was a commercial in the 80’s about computer speech recognjtion that could accurately transcribe “Please write a letter to Mrs. Wright right now.” I try it every few years with Siri. This is the first time she did it correctly.

@chartier USB-C means never having to say “just flip it around a third time and maybe it’ll finally fucking fit” again.

Tootbot sounds like a fart app.
Mastobot well that sounds even worse.

Screw facebook walls. I appreciate that Siri is taking it old-school.

I'm also a podcaster. You can find me talking about creativity on Originality (relay.fm/originality), pop culture on The Incomparable (theincomparable.com), & playing D&D on Total Party Kill (theincomparable.com/tpk/)

I've been described as a "sensitive badass". I've always been an empathetic person, but I also try to take no 💩 I try to boost the voices of marginalized people & advocate for them where I can. This often means that I make people uncomfortable & angry 🙃 pt2
