Pinned toot

I’m Jason, and this is my

I am a hacker, father, husband, filmmaker and kind-of musician. Politically I’m an anarchist and my pronouns are he/him.

I like making things and I love to see and talk to people about the things they make and do. I don’t have much artistic ability and as a result I deeply respect those who do.

I don’t understand competition, favor collaboration (even if I struggle doing it sometimes) and know humans can thrive without authority.

Greetings and salutations! This is your captain speaking.

In the following posts (the locals call them “toots”), I’ll give you a quick tour of the ships features. If you need more information or have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask.

You’ll notice a row of icons containing a house, a bell, three people, a globe and a magnifying glass. I’ll explain each of these in turn next.

After playing with Write Freely more I’m getting more serious about building-out a suite of federated software. Here’s the current list:

* writefreely.org/
* pixelfed.org/
* joinpeertube.org/
* funkwhale.audio/
* …and of course joinmastodon.org/

There may be more. I seem to remember a federated VR system but maybe I imagined that (or need to build it).

I’m thinking like “what if the second society was an actual society?”

I’ve been playing with a federated writing/blogging tool:

writefreely.org/

I’m considering adding this to the services provided here or perhaps under 2SOC.net.

I’m also toying with the idea of folding this site under 2SOC as well. I haven’t put too much thought into it yet but personally I’d like to see 2SOC re-expand into other (and more experimental) things, and I could also use fewer things to manage so consolidation might make my life easier.

Threats of a musical collaboration between myself, @JasonTiffany and @Supernova72 (among others) should be taken seriously and require immediate action.

@Supernova72 you are a saint. Your work with the ignorant on Facebook is commendable and I am in awe of your patience.

“ hope does not come from good news or from hiding emotions – but from community and action.”

This link is a pretty tough read, and it only scratches the surface of the topic, but ultimately the message is hopeful, and for me at least provides a way to reconcile the state of the observable situation with any hope for a better future state.

Continuing my "challenge oneself" sketching exploration, I used a pencil that has multicolored lead in it. It changes sporadically as you draw. Makes for interesting outcomes. Will continue this area too. Lately I sketch every night, which is good for the soul, I'd wager.

Grief, death 

I’m watching Roadside Prophets after spending years looking for it. It’s one of a handful of films we regularly watched at Foggy Mountain (the name we gave Joe’s place after the farm). I’m sure it’s a coincidence that I was finally able to see it again, but it feels like something more.

After trying to draw a Cyberman from Doctor Who, I tried to draw a TARDIS, gave up and started drawing Tom Servo. Darrick asked me why Servo is thinking about the TARDIS lol. And then a xenomorph BECAUSE WHY NOT

I took a stray cat in to the humane society, and called about him today. Turns out he was sick, and is feeling better now thanks to being brought in. If anyone needs a pick me up today. I certainly did. In other news the silly kitty I found outside and helped out that now lives with me has taken indoor catting to a pro level. Not only does he trip me, refuse to move if I'm setting down groceries, demand pets while I sleep, he also snores loudly while snoozing on the couch.

We may have been broken for a bit, but I upgraded our shit and now it looks ok.

Looks like threading of responses is acting up (at least through my iOS app). Maybe time to check for updates…
