Did you hear what the last ones had to say?"

sixty poems i've never shared before, basically a result of hording and writing on and off for years. I decided to put them in reverse chronological order in case I decide to add more.

Howdy Folx, here's an from me!

I am an engineering and environmental studies student. I'm currently interested in digital humanities and archival as well as city planning. I work in energy efficiency strategy and as a program assistant for an LGBTQ+ online community org.

I am , , , and Burmese Chinese.

I like to make bracelets, listen to math rock, learn about the early internet, explore create. I dabble in graphic design and digital art as well.

I have never used a status focused social media platform before. I look forward to learning along with you all and growing in community.

i noticed some similarities between the sites that come up on my feed.
- A website I can't remember the name of but shows kickstarters that never got any funding

and thinking about what this says about how information deprecates over time, the lifespan of different projects, and biases in failure/success perspectives

listened to a bit of the podcast by , "Command Line Heroes". Its seventh season talks about the internet class of 95.

the very first episode explains the origins of .com and the , including an interview with Elizabeth "Jake" Feinler, who back then was "the internet's sole ".

its easy enough to follow without having an extensive technical background imo, cool to hear the history behind it all. in previous seasons they talk about the origins of different OS's, , and more.

i'm thinking about getting a pair of noise canceling headphones but i would also like another pair of earbuds/headphones that are more portable so i can leave the headphones in my room.

does anyone have recommendations for earbuds/headphones that are preferably made sustainably, are durable (i'm very clumsy), decent battery life, potentially a built in mic, and have blue tooth?

please don't suggest air pods

please take a look at the lovely writings of @deianeira who has utilized Your World of Text, an infinite monospaced typing canvas, to share pieces of their work

Did u know the glyph failure character is known as a tofu □

And occasionally the phenomenon in which it happens is referred to as tofu-baké

Don't actually touch me though I don't think I have a body for that

I'm tired of discourse I just want to be held

The blooms are also absolutely delightful right now in the greater Philly area and boy am I miffed about missing that

Here's another one from NYC that was under tree beds. There's a decent amount in NYC that's metal while I saw a few in Philly made of wood. Some people also made them in the style of benches.

On one hand it feels weird to have fences, on the other hand considering everything else built around it is harder for me to imagine such flowers surviving

It's probably going to be hard for me to find resources on this, but so much infrastructure in cities are often built in ways that are socially harmful, like whether this counts as green washing

Here's the one that first caught my eye, someone shared this in a Philly group I am in. Turns out it was made by a family owned iron works crafter.

I'm curious as to why they left the side facing the street unguarded. Guess I have much to learn about tree guard design.

Currently learning about tree guards which, if done correctly, can be lovely protectors of especially in areas. I've seen them around but didn't know many are often built by community members.
I'll put some photos of nice ones I find in the thread, but warning that bad ones tend to be the tight plastic ones that have been shipped out in recent for new trees, restricting and harming long term growth.

Do you recognize yourself in the mirror?

aaaah i finally caught up with unwell the midwestern gothic

if you like horror/ghost stories and queer and bipoc rep, definitely recommended the podcast

somewhere towards the end of season two though they started adding like five minute long ads to the beginning though as a heads up

"heart it races" by architecture in helsinki

i never knew that the dr. dog version was a cover of this. i love them both! this one reminds me of SUPERORGANISM or Peter Bjorn and John

Dr. dog version:

u_u looks like the miniplayers require spotify to be running on my computer in order for me to also use the miniplayer

like i do not want to see the main app because it is ugly

damn this ordinary diff equation solver for matlab is p nice too bad it's deprecated

i wonder how many useful matlab and just math tools in general are lost on the net now forever, making their way to the internet archive if theyre lucky

i should do a search for math tools on the internet archive

i mentioned this before but seriously, transform systems are awesome
