I've now also published the source code: github.com/dariusk/activtypub-

Hey, Mastodon. I'm new here, trying to find a way out of my dependence on unsustainable software and add-driven social media. I'm wondering if there are anyone discussing how to inspire the masses to move out of Twitter/FB/Insta/Google etc? I would really appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.

Well ... The Sun disappeared and it started raining, so I stayed in and edited a 2 track EP which is now on .

You can download it for free!

yesterday someone sent me a random message - a positive affirmation - and it melted me on what was a day full of annoyance and feelings of futility.

It reminded me how easy it is to say or do a nice thing, and how the impact can be far more that we can know.

I finally started getting past my ego defenses in my thirties, and life got fascinating. I think learning to learn and owning that I didn't know are the two skills I'd like to go back and teach younger me.*

*After I slapped the crap out of the younger ape in question for a variety of things better left unlisted.

Good morning.

The other day, I tooted a status as "Busy doing nothing".

Although accurate at the time of writing, I've since written two Ambient music tracks which should be up on later today.

However, the Sun is shining and I love a good walk, so we'll see....

"Oracle-texts: a potentially key narrative tool"

How might oracle-texts be useful in developing an interactive narrative in more contemporary media, such as games and interactive dramas?

Question: is there a name for those lighted writeable boards one sees in submarine movies? It kinda looks like this one. And what is the markers' ink made of?
