Here is a template in PDF format of the Mastodon Paper-Toy.
You will need scissors, glue and a cutter. It may take a bit of patience as well ^^

@gray @jamie if it goes wrong, I point toward the disclaimer (linked in my footer).

I'll paraphrase what it say here though... "Kev is muppet, don't listen to anything he says!"

You've been warned! 😄

Joking aside, that's awesome Jamie. I hope it works out for you man.

@kev Couple of weeks ago you wrote a blog post about doing work that you love. I thought about it a lot and realised that I don't enjoy my work anymore and that I'm stuck in a rut - anyway, the result was that I applied for a secondment to a different team at work and I got told today that I've been successful.

Just a long way of saying thanks for writing it really.

Reason 74 to like the : no stupid images of text. Hardly any images that aren't shared for their value as pictures, full stop. I don't even use a screen-reader, but I can only imagine how frustrating traditional social media is with one.

Been on a month and a half, and I can't remember the last time I saw a blurry image of text with no attribution. Praise be! ;-)

Day 45 of : write.as/jlj/ph

Sorry it's a day late, and to all who viewed the post partially complete; hit publish too soon, somehow. (Hence the ph -- i.e., placeholder -- in the URL.)

I've lost count at how many Google / ex-Google employees have reacted to my content over the last few days... in general just to say that Google is the best company in the world and that they're not doing anything against the web and against the privacy of web visitors! 🤷‍♂️
