The Internet lost a hero today. EFF is mourning the loss of our visionary co-founder, John Perry Barlow. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/02/john-perry-barlow-internet-pioneer-1947-2018
I had an epiphany recently when an activist on a ventilator pointed out that it wasn’t their revolution if they died because you couldn’t keep the hospitals running.
Criticising “capitalism” only gets so far: you have to slide the better version underneath it while it’s running. You have to save everybody.
Otherwise you’ll need to remind me - and then - why you thought you’d be better.
This is why I like to watch “capitalism” closely (and lift everything that works).
Hi vis! I am sharing a personal project I’ve worked on that was really heartfelt: https://medium.com/@giorgialupi/bruises-the-data-we-dont-see-1fdec00d0036
I called it The Data We Don’t See. You can read all about it at the link. I am not sharing it for publicity, I am really interested in what you guys think about experimentations like this, be candid. :)
If we were to have any group of comical evil underlings with yellow bodies and blue overalls become popular, why did it have to be Minions and not Servbots?

I keep thinking about whether or not to dive into Monster Hunter: World. The core loop―hunt creatures, gather materials, upgrade items―seems appealing right now for some reason.
But then: Shouldn't I just play Breath of the Wild as Monster Hunter? Turn on the Sheikah Sensor+ for monsters and get materials to upgrade my gear?
Update about videos working in toot previews in Discord: Talked to Discord devs about it, they won't do anything until they add video proxying to their media proxy. So currently only whitelisted domains show videos inline. Weh
i have concluded that MediaWiki markup actively resists memorisation. It is a free concept, unbindable by human minds.
It's so neat to see the influx of users from vis.social.
It's also neat that having topic- and community-driven instances enables this kind of phenomenon. It reminds me of stumbling on newsgroups, mailing lists, IRC channels, and forums for various topics.
Hey friends, please can someone give me some constructive criticism of this mini-project I'm setting up?
It's to help disabled people get the support they need in their lives (for free).
There are two forms you can fill in, one for support you need and one for support you can offer. there's also a spreadsheet that has all the info of who needs what help and who can offer what help etc. etc.
The idea is that I'll connect people who have similar support needs/"capabilities".
hey does anyone have any tips for gluing #miniatures (or anything similar really)? just did a #bloodbowl ogre and it was my first time actually gluing instead of just like, snapping things in and hoping they don't fall apart
it was a moderate success i suppose but it was a pretty slow process and my fingers kept getting stuck together. i've ideally got 24+ more of these to do if i glue the figures that came in the starter set and i'm wondering if there are any secret techniques i'm missing

So. Um. Know anyone in the general PDX area who is looking for an introverted, respectful, pet-friendly roommate in a month or three?
Landlord terminated my lease last night.
Would like to move out ASAP, this place is no longer safe for me to stay.
I have a 3d printer and a server rack and a milling machine that I'll put in storage if there's no room for them.
I'll want to bake bread and cook soup occasionally, but aside from that I'll mostly stay in my room.
