Hire me! In exchange for currency I'm willing to work for you. Electronics, reverse engineering, graphics design! Fun! Click here and see what I can offer:

Boosts are welcome.

I'm looking for anyone who'd be willing to be interviewed or have a chat about their experiences of using technology in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s as part of a #DigiPres project to document the growth and change in that time.

Please drop me a reply or DM if you're interested.

Who am I looking for? Software people, gamers, enthusiasts, fellow nerds... anyone who used and/or loved technology around the start of the PC boom and birth of the WWW around the world.

OK is now back (I'm also it's new host/owner) -- but it may be a bit sloppy until it catches back with all the missed messages the last ~two days

anyone know of any good resources for learning to machine sew? like youtube videos or similar? I know basically nothing (though when I was a kid I used to know how to use the machine) so something about the basics would be really cool

Just for the fun of it, here is a very rough draft of my brief expository paper, "What Is a Maximal Set of Equiangular Lines?":

This has only been checked over by one person other than me (and they saw a slightly earlier version), so there may be various examples of carelessness within. But hopefully it conveys the *joy* of the subject.

I just published "The Bot Scare", an essay about how the word "bot" is used in American political discourse. Among other things I compare it to the use of "Red" during the first Red Scare.
