Today I finished a documentation on how I use Hydra and p5js for making text-collages. It’s on my website: nervousdata.com/wiese/txt_phyd

And it’s the first more in-depth ‘tech’ documentation I wrote. Since I learned so much through the community and snippets I found on the Internet I thought it was time to publish it.

Two #PHD opportunities at Malmö University in Sweden. One in Media & Communication and one in Interaction Design

Great opportunity to develop your own research project in a interdisciplinary environment with good working conditions!

I'm also in this program (Interaction Design) so feel free to ask me questions!

Putin verspielt gerade seinen letzten Trumpf - die Gaszufuhr. Wenn wir uns davon nicht spalten lassen und solidarisch sind, hat er nichts mehr aufzubieten. Umso wichtiger ist es Kreml-Narrative zu durchschauen

Narrascope is a cool conference on interactive narrative, adventure games, and interactive fiction - with writers, developers, and players.

Imagine if people identified with hand tools the same way they often identify with software tools.

"yeah im a dewalt drill user, how about you?"

Some software even intentionally tries to hijack the identities of people who use it, ie calling them "gophers", "rustaceans", "pythonistas", etc. It's no good. Valuable criticism is likely to be rejected as criticism of the person using the tool, rather than of the tool. Conversely, criticism of certain people who use the tool is erroneously conflated with criticism of the software itself.

I think most group identities do more harm than good. Maybe let's tone down the whole "software as an identity" thing, eh?

This post is inspired by people justifying not recommending Pleroma because "it's toxic". It's not. If you don't want to recommend a tool, that's fine. "I don't use it" is a great reason to not promote a tool. In fact, I think it would be wrong to promote tools that you aren't familiar with or do not use.

I run a Pleroma instance because

1) I tried running Mastodon, but it was hard

2) I tried running Pleroma, and it was easy

So with that, I recommend Pleroma. It's great, particularly if you want to run your own instance. I'm running two instances, one on a Raspberry Pi, and this one which is running on a $5 VPS.

#Servietroet Nutzt eure Bibliotheken wenn ihr bisschen Konsum sparen wollt. Zumindest meine hier vor Ort hat ein unglaublich großes Angebot und ist sehr gut sortiert - neben Büchern auch aktuelle Konsolenspiele, Brettspiele, die Möglichkeit Zeitschriften digital auszuleihen, Hörbücher, Blu-rays …

Bibliothek = günstigstes Medienabo überhaupt für nen 10er im JAHR!

I'm currently researching feminist hacker groups around the world for an episode for the podcast of the german hacker group @haecksenC. First research has proven a little difficult, so maybe you people on mastodon could help me out: Do you know feminist hacker groups in non german speaking countries? Do you know someone who does? please boost! :boost_ok:
