Pinned post

An to pin.

Hi I'm Joshua Byrd. I'm from Brisbane, Australia. I work at ABC News Digital doing code and interactive storytelling. I play in a band called Velociraptor.

I'm married and have a kid called Vada. I'm into computers and animal rights.

Follow along if you wanna.

@trumpet I seem to be getting this when trying to create an account alias :/

I kinda wanna try moving to a different Mastodon instance but not sure which one. Maybe I'll wait for @ashkyd to get back up ... I wonder if we can merge accounts on here ????

Handy tip for the election: think of the most vulnerable in society (the animals) and vote in their interest ✨

It's completely understated how dramatically #climate change will increase the chances of animal to human transmission of disease.

Not saying this case is that -- it's not -- but there's a not too distant future where these jumps happen a lot more often.

I'm pleased to note that even, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

Our daughter Vada has lately been enjoying watching the Chinese dubbed version of Bluey on ABC iview. At first we thought she was putting it on by mistake, but nope. Anyway, looking forward to having a bilingual child pretty soon!

Is there somewhere I can register to let this Dutton dude know we will literally never vote for him in a hundred trillion years and to stop chopping down trees to spam us and every previous tenant 3 times a week via snail mail?? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@distractedmosfet Re-evaluating my life decisions after finding out Elon stole my idea to use on his Platform (or maybe just had the same idea who knows)

Pushing to get this next Substack newsletter out at last. Are you subscribed?

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g.

That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.
