Pinned toot

i just joined and noticed it's tough to find active people to follow. communitywiki.org/trunk has built themed lists, which are a great start, but many accounts are stale and there's a lot of clicking to navigate online.

so last night i played with 's API and packaged up some filtering and automation into /#selenium so all i have to do is 1 click confirm. i put it on gh this morning for other like me. github.com/lots-of-things/pytr

Personal Pledge to Keep Mastodon Not Shitty.

1. Post no distractions. Our time is so short, and so much to do. Each thing I write should aim to make others better off.

2. Ignore shock and flash. Support quiet voices of value. Don't reward outrageous, it breeds more outrage.

3. Reply for the better. Don't pander. Don't doggie-pile on dissenters.

4. Assume humanity, prepare for trolls. I might not see the harm I do. Others don't see how they are perceived. Remain aware of others' intentions.

We need to start calling things "cyberspace" again. And "information superhighway."

hey movie makers...

please stop pairing unnecessarily loud audio for intense action scenes with unnecessarily quiet dialogue. let me just set my volume at one level and leave it.

I have reached the "writing a 4 chapter philosophical treatise on the nature of identity and why I exist" part of the pandemic.

record scratches, camera freezes, etc.

So how did I get here? well when @mike and @kev wrote about why they blog and then started , I tried to write a quick summary of why I write a blog. But then that turned into why do I do anything, and the whole project snowballed, and 3ish weeks later I have described my "reasons."

Hello Mastodon! I have a request.

I'm trying to find a cafe that openly publishes their operating budget online. Has anyone ever heard of that?

Why? It's been my brother's and my dream to create a non-profit coop-type cafe that compensates workers fairly and keeps prices fair too. To do this I want to make some way for the whole org to be totally open. I've assumed that something like this must exist, but I just haven't ever been able to find it through a search engine or word of mouth.

My corporate work asked for a “funny picture of your pet”. So I sent them a picture of Kiki, my sourdough starter, who enjoys being fed and taking long walks. My boss followed up with me to make sure I was doing ok.

its 2020 we should be living in lush forested cityscapes

found these abandoned steps in the forest on our walk today

they've been abandoned so long the trees are starting to reclaim them

From time to time, my opinions change. I have to take in the information as I get it and make the best I can of it. Lots of times, I get it wrong. Hopefully I get more right than wrong. If you're reading through my old posts or toots, please bear in mind that they are a time capsule, a point in time reference to my thoughts at the moment. Those thoughts have likely changed, even if just a little.

After all, I'm only human. If you have questions about my thoughts, just ask.

Making #apps that respect privacy is important, but if we want everyone from our kids to grandparents to use them, there needs to be a stellar user experience.

Not only does it need to be on-par with "the other" websites that everyone uses, the UX actually needs to be better.

Respect for the user's needs and desires is paramount to gain widespread adoption.

Here's to all the #dev folks that create easy to use, #opensource #software that respects #privacy.

Shared a milestone on IndieHackers: Plausible Analytics now has more than 100 paying customers! May has been pretty crazy so far with 3 people on average per day deciding to de-Google-ify their sites and become Plausible.io paying customers 😲
