We're still hiring for devs at all levels at my new employer! Give me a shout.

We're also less interested in specific tech backgrounds than in general aptitude and potential. Offices across the globe!

i take back what i've said today about the archive team. as i'd hoped, Jason Scott fixed (at least, personally, for me) everything about what happened re: berries.space archival. twitter.com/textfiles/status/1

Even though I'm not on Twitter anymore, I see lots of blog posts starting off with some variation of "People are divided! Can't we all just get along?" or "People are so wrong about this! I'll set them straight." Invariably it always turns out that the author got their view of the world from Twitter.

Twitter is not the world. The world is not divided and angry and fighting over every minor thing. It just looks that way if you spend all day using Twitter.

What's the most recommended service for self-printing books these days?

@jessmahler Next couple of weeks, faster if practical (let me know if my time frame is entirely off base). Aiming to get a few copies printed before June.

@jessmahler AFAIK, PDF format should suffice for all those services, at least for the print edition that I'm prioritizing.

I can handle the eBook layout separately.

Paid work: Someone who can do the print layout for a novel from a Scrivener source file. The text is essentially complete (need to apply line edits, add the colophon, etc.).

Please reply here or email me at jc@biggestrobot.com. Boosts appreciated. Thanks!

@InspectorCaracal About 120k words if I recall correctly, but I've already applied a good chunk of edits. What are your rates?

Going to unload some good books (the kind I've been meaning to read for years but would have read by now if it was ever going to happen). If you can pay for shipping from the US, I'll send you one. First come, first serve. Boosts okay.

Looking to pay someone with Scrivener experience to apply prepared line edits to a manuscript. Quick turnaround required. Reply here or email me at jc@biggestrobot.com. Boosts appreciated.

@noiob Roger. I may incorporate my own confusion around the meme's history into the presentation.

@LexPendragon Oh, I mean the history of the meme. I'm under the impression that it got genuinely contentious at times.

Serious question: What's the folk history of "pineapple on pizza" on Mastodon? I'm planning to reference it in a lightning talk.

Don't worry, ma'am, I'm a fox. I've know what I'm doing.

Universal Basic Income (UBI): A History 

"Nagging" isn't a thing. It's a concept invented to make women* feel bad for asking when something will be done. After they have asked before and the "nagged" person already said "yes" but didn't bother following through.

Hey kids when you're designing awesome decentralised stuff, don't forget discoverability. I mean podcasts, conceptually, are perfectly decentralised but when I ask someone about their podcast 90% of the time they tell me to look it up on iTunes.

If you don't want ads and paywalls you have to support the people doing shit for you that aren't putting up ads and paywalls.
