β€˜But you’re Philip Glass! What are you doing here?’ It was obvious that I was installing his dishwasher and I told him I would soon be finished. β€˜But you are an artist,’ he protested. I explained that I was an artist but that I was sometimes a plumber as well and that he should go away and let me finish.”>>

<<Even after Glass achieved fame and notoriety with his opera Einstein on the Beach in 1976, he still continued to ply his blue-collar trades. Called upon to install a dishwasher, β€œI suddenly heard a noise and looked up to find Robert Hughes, the art critic of Time magazine, staring at me in disbelief.

There's so much in the world to be despairing about that you have to make utopia where you can, even in tiny temporary ways, bc often you forget what it's like to be seen as a human being in all the ways you are

taught my students imo the most important thing about JavaScript: you prefix every search with "mdn"

ever decide it's not even worth trying to explain WHY you were doing this thing which caused an error and writing "for reasons"

if you have a car with a fob to allow you to start it, etc what happens if you are driving and you throw the fob out the window? does it check at intervals? only on start?

boost if you are also curious

cybre β‰  cyber

cybre describes an optimism, a hope for the possibility of technology rather than a fear of its oppression
cybre represents the reality of what is now possible, in addition to the mythology of what was thought possible
cybre belongs to the indomitable individuals and indefatigable communities who have carved out a home in an invisible layer above reality

also cybre was available as a domain name

today we have

Team A: front end devs
- extroverted cinnamon rolls
- afraid of Team B's overbearing manager

Team B: systems devs
- introverted cinnamon rolls
- afraid that everything must be perfect next week

despite being
I think I'm kind of reassuring everyone involved that it'll be ok and I'll handle it.

As someone who’s seen forum communities splinter and migrate and reform into various configurations, instances are fascinating. I never leave cybrespace and yet I see from afar people come and go together into new spaces

"fragging" your enemies and getting the "quad damages" may be cool,. but you want to know what's even cooler?

being honest and kind to yourself

i just swear it works and it's possible and i'm trying

do other autistic people in tech have days when they're trying to show how a thing works and apparently other brains just work completely differently?

some things you might not know about cybre.space:

- we have custom themes! go to your preferences page and scroll down to the bottom to try them out. we have dark (default), mastodon-classic, cybre lite, and windows 95

- we host our own halcyon instance (which is probably hella out of date now oops) at halcyon.cybre.space/ if you prefer the twitter style interface

- we take most custom emojo requests :yoshi:

and as a more personal for myself:

i'm 21, enby, and rounding out my second year with my boyfriend (who laments but tolerates my fascination with mastodon). i'm also a dragon furry and run another instance called scalie.business for folks who like that sort of thing

i'm perpetually fascinated by all things cybre; i'm a computer engineering student right now but i'll be entering the tech workforce soon. i have lots of thoughts about computers but not nearly enough time to explore them all :(
