hello my name is Travis, and this is my

I’m an artist that makes / (in the experimental, dance-theatre, post dramatic genre), , games, puppets, paintings, music. I’m queer, live in Brooklyn NY, and like to make people laugh.

Seeking community online to learn about , , find new recipes, and what’s up with .

I am the co-chair of the IT Committee for a small food cooperative, and love talking about it.

Academia-oriented Mastodon instances ought to set their CSS so that when someone hovers over the "Publish!" button it switches to "Perish!"

Open call for participants! 👄 🤖 🌚 December 10th, together with @anglk we will run a workshop on ancestral data, artificial voice and vocal doppelgangers.

hello! I'm ryan challinor, a coder/designer/prototyper/game developer with a strong interest in music and interactive systems. I don't consider myself a musician, but I love making music

in 2011 I started building a DAW-like modular synth environment to help me learn about music and audio programming, and I've worked on it obsessively ever since. in 2021 I released its 1.0 version publicly open-source as "bespoke synth" (

most of what I post here will likely be about features I add to bespoke, or videos of music I make in bespoke. you can go see some of that stuff over on the bird site, while it still exists:

I'm a dad, I like biking around the city, I have a MIDI controller addiction, and I recently joined a bouldering gym

picking a mastodon server to join is easy -- just think of it like you're allying with one of many families in a war-torn medieval land, each with their own histories, feuds, laws, blood rituals

I've been reading and thinking a lot about what's been happening on #mastodon around questions and issues of #racism, #moderation, #contentwarnings, etc. I have a few thoughts.

First, I'm old. I mean OLD. My first internet experiences were as an adult academic in the mid-late 80s. As a Black person (and at the time, a woman) it was not unusual to be met with micro-agressions, harassment, and incredulity when I was online.

Thus, I have never expected, nor found, truly safe space online. 1/

Hi everyone! I'm Bérénice. I’m an artist based in Zürich and I produce web based projects, installations, performances and web-to-print books that critically examine the way we make things public.

I also teach art publishing and digital art at the School of Arts & Media Caen/Cherbourg, in Normandie, where I’m the Program Director of the MA Editorial Design.

These days, I spend time looking for cute sky belly buttons in StreetView.

To this extent I'm really interested to know how the age breakdown of people on the #Fediverse. On one hand it would seem to make sense to me that most people here remember the "old internet" before the centralization and they're here to rekindle that flame of independence. On the other hand the youths are generally pretty up on this whole technology thing. I grew up on the internet and since then smartphones have become even more ubiquitous.

Blini (блины) are a lesson in carbon steel humility though. Absolute disaster. After modifying the recipe to contain egg it works very well. Not sure what babushka's secret is for the egg-free traditional recipe. Perhaps the age of the pan.

How to Make the Fediverse Your Own:

A love letter for the Twitter exodus from your friends at

By way of #introduction I'll share one of my #projects reclaiming and giving away discarded (and mostly new) Uber JUMP #ebikes. Tens of thousands of them got sent to a scrap metal processor near my house. I wanted one for myself and ended up with several tractor trailer loads! They work great but I had to design a new bike computer to replace the proprietary integration points with Uber's app. The new model has an app too, but interfaces via BLE rather than LTE.

From the cloud to the crowd... 18 posters on the streets of Dundee to protest the takeover of institutions by computational infrastructures, to call for a strike against digital depletion and to party in the ruins of Big Tech - made by Batool Desouky and @ccl with @titipi and as part of the Counter Cloud Action Plan

Might you be interested in doing a (funded) #PhD in #Comm or #CompSci working closely with taxi workers to study, design, organize, and build just futures? I especially welcome students who come from communities of drivers or transport workers, or from east African communities. Get in touch!

So, I've managed to make pancakes in a carbon steel pan. It was a disaster the first few times I tried, but through use over time the pan became completely non-stick. I could even flip them by flinging them in the air. There are many memes and misinfo about seasoning and whatnot it is incredible.

i have been lurking here for several months but am officially attempting to migrate -

hi! i'm brent. i'm an artist and programmer in nyc trying to make "punk software."

i'm a tech fellow at eyebeam, an art + technology nonprofit, where i spend most of my time working on weird digital art spaces and helping @shibacomputer out with anti-surveillance work.

i am into open-source, shitposting, walking simulators, dungeons and dragons, and DIY hardware & software. this seems like a nice place and i am happy to be here! i am new to the concept of a "friendly" online space but i am eager to see what it's like and meet some folks.
