#introductions howdy! i'm cori. i'm a web developer and general front end person by day, and by night i'm a fake gamer girl who loves indie games and listening to music.
i also make weird jokes and terrible meme-adjacent content
I finished my stint as a Mozilla Fellow and now I'm relaunching my Patreon with a focus on, well, fixing social media.
This means I'm going to continue my concerted work trying to make the fediverse a better place, in the form of best practice guides for running instances, external advocacy, and technical tutorials and training so that more people can contribute software to the fediverse at large.
You can read a partial summary of my work so far at my new Patreon page!
So yeah that's 4 random games from itch. I think I came to all of them via word of mouth from here or birdsite, I can't even remember via who at this point. I love the idea of doing writeups like this on the reg but we'll see if I have the energy for it.
Definitely please dig around on itch for things that interest you, it's the only way to save ourselves from a world where everyone only ever talks about the same five huge games that each cost 9 trillion dollars to make.
cold take, banning discourse, nazis
if the current discourse over banning were about almost anything other than nazis i could understand people being upset about it
but it's not
we're just banning nazis
the overwhelming consensus is nazis are bad
this is not up for debate
i literally don't see what's so difficult to understand about this

or alternatively, a Wes Anderson movie so if I say something weird it's actually Quirky and a Style Choice

I've been contacted by a German canton's police to take one video down on my instance as it was a murder of a young woman.
A quick search of the owner's username reveals he's been already banned from many video platforms for the extreme and conspiracy content.
"Software below the poverty line" by André Staltz https://staltz.com/software-below-the-poverty-line.html
This is a pretty eye-opening and damning piece. There's so much money sloshing around in our industry, but not a lot of it is going to our open-source commons.
kinda want a 30 minute synth jam that's just the first 5 seconds of the original Reading Rainbow theme extended into some kind of grand minimalist arpeggiator masterwork https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPqpmSWwuGk

I don't... hate this? If moz can get enough revenue from this and can stop getting money from search engines and ads, I'll be happy https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/10/18660344/firefox-subscription-paid-service-vpn-cloud-storage-release-date
