Time for a new , I think.

Hello. I run a small creative studio part time when I'm avoiding (TM). Tinkering with art, design, music, words, technology and code makes me happy.

Prefer over not. Prefer anarchy over capitalism. Trying to be more self-reliant. Physically and digitally.

Use updating my website as a form of procrastination. Often start things but don't finish them. (Ex) Goth. Obsessed with Twin Peaks.

Looking for like-minded people.

My mind is so scatty. I am working on at least 3 projects at once and inly making incremental progress on all of them...

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

Also: there are no cookies on my website until you log in. That means I don't need to have one of those dumb popups / sliders / toggles banging on about the importance of privacy.

I believe. Because I don't track you. Or have any data of yours to be stolen.

Which is nice.

IF you're bored, feel free to please check?

Spending time making my footer look nice on mobile AND on desktop.

In that order.

A website selling soap: your password is WEAK, you should try again with capital letters and lower case letters and numbers and special characters and no English words

My literal bank: whoa whoa whoa, you can't put special characters in your password! Who do you think you are, the Riddler

Went back to twitter to see if the game group over there had added anything to their weekly creative things they do.

so. many. adverts.

like so. many.

You go away for a bit and then there's a shed load of adverts. I'm totally not interested now. I'll probably use twitter for project updates via Tweetdeck and pretty much nothing else.

[1/2] Godspeed You! Black Emperor officially became a Live Music Archive band after their hiatus in 2004. They'd given Archive.org explicit permission to host recordings of their concerts in a formal collection on the website where the band actively encourages fans to share their bootlegs. I'd joined a fan community a few months ago and to my surprise they're very involved with this. Since 2018 they've archived of over 250 gigs of bootlegs dating as far back as 1997...

#theStudio

#Reddit seems to have discovered the free and open Internet:
reddit.com/community-points

Will they implement an existing open protocol?
No.

Will they open their protocol?
No.

What will they do, then?
Go into cryptocurrencies.

Ugh, RIP Reddit.

I thought it was fake or something but it's not, they're effectively converting upvotes into crypto coins:

And in this dystopian little promo they pitch how monetising your every tiniest action is actually freedom:

Today is Aaron Swartz birthday. Because of him, we have Creative Commons (development), Reddit (co-founder), Watchdog.net, Open Library, DeadDrop, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Demand Progress (co-founder), ThoughtWorks, and Tor2web.

Setting up my coding environment. on both my laptops. to make them the same. I should just copy config files across. But then I'm not interval learning.

I have spent the whole day outside. In the countryside. Walking, sitting by the river and whittling, watching birds, planting bulbs in the back garden.

Now I am listening to death metal and making a HUGE veggie chili.

Corporations: we’re fucking psychopaths

Folks: can you please be kinder?

Corporations: which part of β€œwe’re fucking psychopaths” did you not understand exactly?
