Hi all! I'm trying out this fediverse/mastodon thing. #introductions
I'm here mostly for (1) free/libre & open source software, (2) accessibility, (3) science fiction and fantasy, and (4) queer/trans joy.
Ah! New Carrie Vaughn novel coming in June (= So excited #SFF https://www.tor.com/2021/01/22/cover-reveals-carrie-vaughn-questland/
"2020 in Reading" is my annual roundup of what I read last year. Lots of #SFF but some other stuff in there as well.
Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts on them?
Here's my latest #SFF Adventures blog post, in which I share my thoughts on everything genre-related that I've been reading, watching, and listening to.
Have you read/watched/listened to anything here? What were your thoughts about it?
@fossandcrafts I liked your recent episodes on digital humanities and Scribble!
Might I ask: Is there any particular reason why you used Racket/Scribble instead of Markdown and Pandoc? (I've used Markdown/Pandoc for academic papers before, and it worked very well for me.)
Hi all! Here is my latest #SFF Adventures blog post, in which I round up all the sci-fi & fantasy things I've been reading and listening to 🚀
This month's post touches on portal fantasies, Robin Hood, D&D, and more.
I've been becoming an #accessibility nerd this year, and here's my latest entry!
In "Accessibility Adventures: October 2020," I touch on accessible gaming, compliance/conformance to laws & standards, and classless #CSS stylesheets
This is important and a good read
The title basically sums it up: "Holy Shit! Representation Matters! Or, How SFF Helped Me Realize I’m Nonbinary"
Any reviews of The Vela Season 2 from Serial Box out there? #sff
I heard good things about season 1, but haven't read it yet. I noticed they have new writers for season 2, and I'm wondering what's up with that and how it's working out
"It's also important because of the parallels between what the economy does to an ecological system and what the attention economy does to our attention. In both cases, there's a tendency toward an aggressive monoculture, where those components that are seen as "not useful" and which cannot be appropriated (by loggers or by Facebook) are the first to go."
—Jenny Odell, How to Do Nothing (xviii) (2/2)
I like to read, write, go outside, and play with computers.
I'm into free software, accessibility, and SFF.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
