Hi all 👋🏽

I'm an SRE, Musician, Artist.

I've recently started learning and exploring creative ways of using tech/coding via creative coding (P5.js), writing music in Python, and just recently discovered algorithmic live coding, which looks incredibly fun! :think_starry_eyes:

If anyone has any tips for getting started with algorithmic live coding via Hydra or other tools, feel free to send me a DM with resources and/or tips!

I also love video games, hiking with my pup, movies & shows (horror, animation/anime, sci-fi, fantasy, etc), and playing bass/piano.

I do not like that site of birds
I do not like its awful words

I do not like what it became
I do not like its cult of shame

I do not like intrusive ads
I do not like the vapid fads

I do not like the clout it’s given
I do not like its algorithm

But I shall miss that weird bird town
I do not like it burning down

“To the extent that people remain active on Twitter, they preserve the viability of Musk’s gambit. The illusory sense of community that still lingers on the platform is one of Musk’s most significant assets. No matter which side prevails, the true victor in any war is the person selling weapons to both sides.”

question about accessibility in PCB design :boost_ok:

im thinking of putting two status indicator LEDs on a thing im making. how would this best be made accessible wrt color blindness? is there a good color combo to use? or is any color good enough if its labeled (i.e. LED on/off is always distinguishable enough)?

(im using simple single-color leds, so the status light will never change color)

In Super Mario Galaxy when Mario drowns in a swap his hand reaches out, but because of the size of the head devs had to shrink it so only the hand is visible to the player #GameDev

anyone here mess with non-mastodon fedi stuff? (pleroma, bookwyrm, pixelfed, honk, ...)

this is how people annotate , right? 👀

i swear i started reading this book for the sci-fi and horror, which has been fantastic so far, but nobody told me it’d break my soft heart like this 😩

I was in need of a new domain name so naturally I turned to the script from @xor that generates valid hostnames from public domain books: github.com/thisisparker/public

I fed it my favorite utopian/psychedelic/creepy/hollow earth novel Etidorhpa (which I've written about at excessive length at lizadaly.com/pages/utopian-nov) and got some good ones:

Reading the replies to black people on here is really discouraging. Being anti-capitalist is not sufficient to dismantle systems of oppression. A distributed social media system isn’t the solution to racism. If we can’t tackle the real issues, then this FOSS playpen is just one more arena to enact violence.

I haven’t seen a #hiring thread in a bit.

Who is hiring true entry level for folks just getting into the field or pivoting in from other fields?

With all the layoffs in tech recently, there are lots of experienced people looking for new roles, which is drowning out the folks just getting into #InfoSec and #cybersecurity.

Big rumblings in the expansion of the #Fediverse have been happening recently.

#Tumblr has already promised to implement #ActivityPub (the protocol Mastodon uses), which will mean you can follow Tumblr accounts from here and vice versa. And today we a learning that #Flickr is also considering it!

This will be a massive expansion, which obviously carries some uncertainties, but I, for one, welcome our new federation partners.

This is the way the internet is supposed to work.
