I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Hey if you have and you’re feeling pretty shitty right now (as it is known in the secret language of your fellow sufferers) —- welp now there’s two of us!

not going to make a tumblr out of this predicament or anything but hey *clinks low-fodmap glass, gives the single-fingered IBS salute* solidarity!

Another big change in my life. Good, exciting: but it always feels like standing on a cliff, hoping against hope that you’ll fly.

My best friend is working on the foundation for a p2p whiteboard.

I colored this live, with the GF on her phone (she did the line art) and another person watching over the internet.

We found some bugs with the panning tool making the image jump around.

Also routed out some issues with IndexedDB and GUN that seemed to be some sort of issues when multiple tabs were loaded.

Still a long way to go, but it worked! github.com/nsreed/ouronote

So... the Dutch city of Utrecht has an underwater webcam at a particular lock that is not used by ships much in spring. People can watch for fishes waiting to get inland, and can ring a "doorbell" to alert the lock keeper so they might open the lock if there are enough fish waiting...

Lazyweb time: what’s that site that will show a tweet or a twitter thread, so you don’t have to link to twitter directly?

Now, New Yorkers and striking Charter engineers have a way to join forces. A group of striking Charter employees have founded People's Choice, a worker-owned ISP that is providing broadband to the New Yorkers whom Charter abandoned.


As they point out, they're the same workers who built the network that Charter's scabs are running into the ground today. They're using that expertise to deliver wireless and fixed wireline access in the Bronx and they're expanding.
