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.

giggling to myself at the idea of hearing the tiny charms jingling around the house and on the street as i walk with such a ridiculous amount of trinkets on a tiny phone

tempted to get a flip phone and adorn it with cute, little charms :unwanted_rabbit:

(and also inadvertently free myself from the habit of checking social media unnecessarily)

i need to start working out again. when i’m working out, at least i’m sore and tired because i am both old AND building muscle. plus, my muscles are the ones that are sore.

when i’m not working out, i’m sore and tired just because i’m old, AND i’m sore in places i didn’t even realize could ache :unwanted_sad:

one of the things i’ve learned about being an adult is that, after 30, no amount of coffee will ever fix the exhaustion from staying up past 10 PM more than 2 nights in a row 🥲

in Norway, "up and not crying" is a not uncommon response to "how's it going" type questions, and I feel like that's a very reasonable standard to hold oneself to especially nowadays

Local SF screen printing shop Babylon Burning is raising funds to rebuild from a fire (I know, I know, irony is rough sometimes). If you've worn an EFF shirt from the last decade or so, you've enjoyed their work. You can chip in here if you're so inclined: https://gofund.me/28ce3561

Have there been any serious attempts to define an image format for the web that includes embedded text (like PDFs) and native descriptions aimed at humans (like alt text)?

It’s goofy we’re all out here screenshotting things containing text and then, at best, manually adding the text back in ways that aren’t bound to the image.

Eyes are important and hard to replace. Protect yours. Target your enemy’s.

I've been playing around with HyperCard this week! I'm trying to make a little zine about old hardware/software. 💾

I thought it was apt to make it in software that was discontinued in 1998 haha.
