Greetings cybre.space denizens! I ran my own instance for a while until it ate itself :) In that time I saw that some of the most interesting denizens of the Fediverse originated from this community! I love chatting about just about anything but especially #Python, retro-computing, games, and science fiction, or Freemasonry. I build clouds by day and chase bright shiny things by night :) I look forward to engaging with you all! #intro

@phildini Really loved your Pycon talk! It's the perfect answer to "Why should I look at Mastodon?" for techies!
Guess what programming language Richard Feynman used? Show more
There was a time when even the smartest weren't ashamed to use "beginner" languages. Our elitism dooms us to a world where only the elite are literate because we insist on writing in hireoglyphics and conclude that everyone who can't learn it must just be too dumb. Which we sugar coat by saying their brains just work differently.
@novshmozkapop Is this THE Noah Friedman? :) The guy I helped haul hardware across tech square to the FSF from Concentra where I worked in days of yore when we both had WAY more hair? :) Welcome to the fediverse!
I like the name "snitch-tagging." But I do not like the practice. If you are concerned someone's being harmed in a conversation in which they're not involved, you speak to them privately, or you speak to a moderator.
I have pretty much never seen anyone tag another user into a conversation about them with good intentions. But I have definitely seen it used as a vector for harassment.
So I've gotta say I'm kinda torn. I really love #kde. I also really enjoy #qt and think I'd prefer working in C++ over C. Yet I feel like all the momentum in the #linux desktop is going to #gnome. So it's somewhat of a conundrum to decide which ecosystem I want to try to train myself to be able to contribute to :)
Husband. Freemason, and raging nerd, in that order. I chase bright shiny things! I build clouds for a living. Retrocomputing, programming, science fiction.
