Probably one of the saddest parts of leaving birdsite was that I’d spent a pretty decent amount of time trying to add and follow a lot more women in tech, and I miss hearing from them.
Help me balance my follows out and suggest some awesome #WomenInTech to follow (cis/trans, it’s all good). Boost this, maybe even reply with yourself, maybe we can get a good list of voices.
about privacy of DMs Show more
admins need to be able to read DMs in order to take action on harassing DMs. don't share any truly sensitive information over DMs on mastodon or any other social networking software, because if your account is hacked or if your instance is hacked, that information is compromised.

mastodon meta, "brands" Show more
there's a difference between "i'm an artist who needs to have a following to make money" and "arby's makes a mastodon account"
and we feel like people on mastodon use "brand" to mean the latter and people on twitter use "brand" to mean the former tbh
It remained empty.
But now I am home!
They're closing the doors on my flight from MSP to SAN and my whole row is empty except for me...
"“We need to go back to our roots and start building protocols again. This change will never come from a large company. It has to rely on an open tinkerer culture. We need well-defined protocols and multiple implementations of these. Protocol design is quickly becoming a lost art. Rather, people are satiated with “APIs” to the point where they can’t recover."
(that's quoted from a quote inside the article)
leave abusers and shitheads at the door, but when it comes to comrades, be patient with each other and make the implicit explicit. we're not going to build better spaces and a better society if we're so focused on being anti status quo that we forget to work together and treat comrades with kindness.

TL;DR I'm no longer working full time, so I'll be posting a lot more content in the coming months. I'm also starting my junior year in college, and I redid my website: https://leotindall.com
It works much better with accessibility devices now, and is easier on the eyes. There's tons of great content there, go take a peek if you're into #OpenSource, #FOSS, #FreeSoftware, #programming, #CompSci, #math, #hacking, #ReverseEngineering / #re, or #RetroHardware
Here's a fun little project I've been working on :)
Limonada is a sprite editor with a UI inspired by old versions of Paint. It's currently in an early alpha stage but is already usable (pen, line, floodfill!)
My plan is that it will eventually be an alternative to proprietary solutions, as well as being a good cross-platform choice for sprite editing.
Get it here (you'll need to build from source, or pm me for a binary): https://github.com/japanoise/limonada
