Pinned toot

Hello 👋 I'm Nathaniel or "Nate" (he/him).

I'm a Visual & UI in the . I've always been artistic & a geek so a career was a obvious choice.

When I'm not working I'm 🎮 on PC/console, ✏️, frequenting pop/rock/alt concerts & exploring NorCal with my GF.

Life long enthusiast/hipster (I liked them before they were a juggernaut).

Long time Twitter user increasingly nervous about the direction of that platform.

I’ve been half “disconnected” since Friday for a nice long weekend and visit to the coast. It’s been a very nice break.

Time to catch-up on work, Twitter, news, and other online connections.

S3 finale was better than expected.

I borderline disliked half of the season for being all melodrama or action with little nuance, and the new future tech stuff feels like nonsense without established rules.

I did really love E7 about Vulcan (aka Ni'Var) 🖖

I’m a bit late to watching but it’s sooo much smarter and more “Trek” than . Quite unexpected.

I took a walk to clear my head. Time to ignore Twitter and try to get some work done.

This long weekend was too short. Glad it’s another short work week for New Years!

Haha this is great if you’ve ever seen Neon Genesis Evangelion

This is gross and pathetic of

“Apple should let us keep harvesting ALL your data and tracking you to help small businesses 🥺”

Huge corporations like Amazon and Facebook are what compete with and hurt small businesses, not user online.

@ndaught Classic Facebook related app nightmare!
the other day I was analysing privacy policy of Whatsapp, it has a generic some data like location etc are transferred to Facebook and a lot of emphasis on E2EE. But analysing traffic (I still have to find someting like wireshark to see packet content) there is a ton of call to Facebook server for everything you do on WhatsApp.

Haha Instagram’s “App Privacy” report on the App Store update takes a lot of scrolling... Yuck 🤮

I updated to macOS 11.1 and purged Chrome yesterday. Not exactly scientific but my 16” MacBook Pro does actually seem more responsive than it’s been since I first got it…

Now I just wish I could do something about the 13 Adobe daemons.

Thanks to a birthday gift I’m finally going to retire my trusty wired 2006 Xbox 360 controller (now PC controller) 🎮 after 14’ish years of use.
