Pinned toot

Hi!
You should subscribe to me on Drip! d.rip/mark

Drip is a new tool for creators from Kickstarter (where I work) for creators and their communities.

I'm doing more and more of my online stuff there, and you can subscribe to my posts for $0 (that's free). Check it out - and even if you don't like me or my online stuff, there's other amazing creators on Drip, too!

👋 ICYMI, I released a new bot this past weekend that makes new Animorphs covers: @animorphs

My coworker put a jigsaw puzzle down in our work area and I've learned this about myself: I'm a real puzzleboy.

You can now challenge someone to game of over toots! castling.club/ 💪

It's actually a standalone server in the , implementing all by itself. 😃

What do you call a node that represents you in the fediverse? Some people have multiple profiles across different instances, what do you call just one of them?

I'm going to propose a "federme", but I'm open to suggestions.

I won't be tailoring my posts for those perusing a federated timeline, so don't expect many CW's from me.

I'm trying to be more Stoic and less Online.

This is a thing already, I've learned!

`iconv -f 437` will cover *most* of the use cases.
Is there a way you view cool ANSI art in your modern terminal?

If you are interested in establishing a way to verify that you are who you say you are on Mastodon, you can do that with keybase.io!
See: mastodon.social/@mw/1794288

With the keybase command line tool, sign a message that states your identity:
keybase sign -m 'I am @mw and wunsch on keybase'

Post that message.

You can verify someone else's message with:
keybase verify -m '...'

or piping it in like
message | keybase verify -i -

Now you know!

Here’s an idea I’m toying with: a command line utility that reads “High ASCII” input and outputs a utf8 mapping where some of the special characters are replaced with box drawing equivalents with the goal of outputting cook ANSI art in a modern terminal.
Is this a good idea? A thing already?

This looks neat and I'm glad it exists! fatconference.org/index.html

ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability, and
Transparency

"A multi-disciplinary conference that brings together researchers and practitioners interested in fairness, accountability, and transparency in socio-technical systems."

Their Call for Papers is open!

A while back, I massed unfollowed everyone on bird site and only followed brands and institutions I thought were interesting and I enjoyed it so much more.
I recommend it as an alternative to disabling your account altogether.
Who would have thought that *brands* would be the key to a more pleasant bird site experience?

"Boost a toot" to the tune of "Bust a move"

Looks like other people are remembering Mastodon. Welcome friends!

I forgot about Mastodon. Love this decentralized federated social shit.
