I am looking for a digital #artist to commision for three assets for the mastodon client @Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred. Commission will of course be payed.

The more “cross platform” apps I see, the more I like apps written specifically for one platform. Maybe that’s because of the crappy performance of Electron and all the security scandals around Java. But I’d like to see more platform specific apps. Like in the good old days.
The ethical Instagram alternative @pixelfed is launching soon, but did you know that there's another federated photo sharing site in development?

"Hi there I'm raising money to go to Africa and volunteer at an elephant sanctury can you donate anything for this wonderful cause?"
Idk maybe instead you could stay here and donate the cost of the plane ticket to the sanctury so they can pay local trained professionals instead of you crowdfunding to send your white teenaged self to bumble around on holiday patting elephants and speaking English at everyone

The people who invented waste recycling systems probably get along great with Linux developers.
They actually expect average people to a) know what their rubbish is made of and b) care.
Yes, you can probably expect people to understand that if it's dirty it can't be recycled. People mostly understand the concept "dirty". But expecting them to know what all this packaging is made of? And which types are recyclable in which bin?
