I’m new here, and apparently an #introduction is in order, so here we go! I’m Graham, I work at Oxford Uni on free software (https://global.health), I stream with @srbaker on GNUstep (https://objc-retain.com) and Amiga (https://dosamigans.tv), and I blog at https://sicpers.info and https://deprogrammaticaipsum.com. Happy to be part of Fosstodon! #introductions
@leeg Have you heard of the covid moonshot? What is its condition now? Welcome to fosstodon. Here you can talk about hardware and software all you want.
@XxAlexXx some extra funding was announced last week: https://www.ox.ac.uk/news/2021-09-28-moonshot-initiative-develop-affordable-covid-19-antivirals-gets-funding-boost we’ve also got a new initiative for a Pandemic Science Centre, which overlaps the mission of global.health so I’m a bit more involved on that side.
Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you. Create your bio, add an avatar pic and some emojis to your name so others can learn more about you. If you haven't, sending out an introduction listing your interests will help.
The custom emoji list is here:

Good luck and have fun.
