Imma make this clear: I'm not building software for developers.
I'm working to building tools for people.
You shouldn't have to know to maintain and secure a server to have your own independent identity online. You shouldn't need to know what libsodium or similar library to be secure online.
That's my objective.
Serious question for the #Fediverse/#DecentralizedWeb.
What kind of content do y'all want to see produced in the realm of media?
@deadsuperhero's video really inspires me to get on that boat of content creation (outside of other things) and I want to know from y'all. https://video.jacky.wtf/videos/watch/6d08c8ed-9ee8-4b43-921b-d99c2fa839f3
Lemme do a longer #introductions.
I'm a software developer. I also like to cook, dance (hip-hop largely, step), read, write, TV crunch and be outdoorsy. I'm a lot ;). I <3 my dog!
I like giving people tools and the notion of autonomy. Especially over data. If you have questions about me, check my faq at https://jacky.wtf/faq. If it's not there, let me answer and add it for others to find!
Never feel afraid to ask me anything. I'll do my best to answer - or find someone who can.
re: "parasite", story about paul graham Show more
i had the weird fortune of seeing paul graham, of ycombinator fame, at pycon 2012. he said, "the best way to make money is to sell things to rich people," which is a funny way of saying, "the only way to survive is to lean into inequality." he lives that parasite life and cannot see beyond it. his wealth protects his ignorance, meticulously ensuring he never understands just what he preaches.
The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

A busy weekend.
Attached is my post to the #FSF member forum on Friday.
Enough is enough.
It's long past time the board exercised their duty under Article VI Section 7 of the bylaws and vote him out. I understand that they have tried before but failed. But by now, his behavior is doing serious harm to the public interest the public charity is chartered to support.
Many other folks have also cancelled their memberships over the weekend.
I need someone at @PINE64 to answer me! Lol let me write apps for your watch with some designers and fellow developers please OMG
Fediverse developers need to work together on a common discovery schema.
valve in 2008: the tf2 kill cam serves multiple purposes. it teaches the player what killed them by giving them visual feedback, and it also creates a sense of connection with the opponent. when you feel that your opponent has a name and personality it makes the game feel more interesting
valve in 2018: you want to buy a hat that gives you 200% health? ok. we put it in the game. who gives a shit
@PINE64 plz let me in lol
how much do I need to pay @PINE64 to get the watch prototype so I can start building apps on it?
who do I have to e-mail?
oh okay it'll be using Bluetooth 5 https://fosstodon.org/@PINE64/102791996281808634
I don't know how fast that is so it'll be ideal for the host device to do the heavy network stuff and serialize things down to the device.
I wonder if there's a library for binary messaging passing in serde / rust
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
