Hey, Mastodon. I started a Patreon and $5+ patrons get early access to Mixolumia. That means you get access to all updates + the final game even if you decide you can't continue after the first month, although it'd be awesome if you stuck around. I'm hoping this thing will help me keep some level of stability as an indie game developer trying to make it in Japan, so thanks for checking it out!

My friend @sandro (who also was the W3C staff member on the Social Working Group as it turns out) has put together a chart about "ways to harm people online" (whether you agree all are harms, most are, and all are claimed as such) that I think is really useful: docs.google.com/document/d/1ZQ

What's interesting is that most of these are about harm caused by *distributing* information.

If you're in New England, here's what you can do:
• Go to your local stop and shop and join the picket line!!! Wear red!!
• Boycott Stop and Shop
• Organize rideshares to help people (especially strangers and non-furries) get to affordable grocery stores that aren't stop and shop
• Follow @StopDontShop@twitter.com for updates on the strike

#1u #Furs4Labor #StopDontShop #DontCrossPicketLines #ThisIsWhatSolidarityLooksLike

I wonder if I could get good enough at lambda calculus to use it in tech interviews

Nine perfumes on the death of cities


1. On the occasion of the vaporization of Glasgow by the Titanian New Urumqi Front in 3560, following a 24-hour warning: wet stone, ozone, whisky, bins and burning peat.

2. On the slow mummification of the last inhabitant of Rome on the sunlit and cypress-covered ruins of the Palatine Hill in 10251, and the crumbling of her ancient library into warm dust: sun-warmed tree resins, old books, wild thyme and wolf shit.

3. On the unexpected reclaimation of Lagos by the sea in 2520, following a meteor strike aimed so precisely at the intersection of the prime meridian and the equator that for many years it was taken as evidence that humanity was living in a buggy simulation: Petrol, sweat, mud and the overwhelming sea.

4. On the final desertion of Isfahan in 6640 at the start of autumn, in response to the fourth wave of the Maltese Plague: over-ripe pomegranates, black pepper, and the lurking hint of something dead.

5. On the death of the last human in Hyderabad in 55801, and the sealing of the city into a tomb by the Followers before their great journey: A thousand marigolds blooming in the dust, ewers of clear water, and something like metal and pears.

6. On the destruction of Nova Cuzco by the eruption of Maat Mons in Venusian year 20881: burning wood, tomato vines, green mango, butter and sulphur.

7. On the occasion of the last unlocking of London’s new gates, some time after the arrival of the ice, but before the long dark: grease, ambergris, leather and sharp cold air with the promise of snow.

8. On the last stand at Archangelsk, 19555: Seaweed, dirt, sewage, king crabs, vodka and fear.

9. On the night that the remaining survivors realised that there was no longer any way out of Los Angeles, 3994: fine wine, cherry syrup, spilt blood, weed, tar and gunpowder.

AND zero-width spaces although that's going to be more annoying for your friends/coworkers/maintainers

today's fun fact is that git branch names can include non-breaking spaces
