rant birdsite-masto 

Haven't posted here for a while, again.

I still have an hard time fully integrating masto into my life online; I still mainly post on the hellish birdsite.
The main reason is that I use twitter mainly to post what I do, it's how I communicate my work to the world and it is how I found most of my jobs and contracts.

So, it's not going to change any time soon.

And for now it feels kind of weird posting the same-ish thing on both platform.

So, I don't know yet, I love being here, it feels way better than twitter and I can probably move all my non work/art related stuff here; but maybe I should post what I create here as well.

Quick update on personal wiki/site/stuff project:

I'm trying out notion.so, not sure if I will end up using it directly or just to test out structure and stuff, but it seems to be an interesting solution for now for a non dev like me.

Maybe not the most elegant or lightweight solution, but it should help me having something up and running quickly enough.

Will have to look into the unofficial python API too.

I have a project that has been on my mind for ages. It started as a parody of dropbox when I bought the domain floppybox.cloud.

The idea was that people could sign up and get 1.44MB of webspace to do with what they wanted; even going so far as to mounting that storage so it appeared as a floppy drive on their computer.

I purchased the domain on a whim over a year ago and while I haven't had time to work on the project itself. I have thought about its concept.

I think it would work nicely as an website based digital art project.

Given the space constraint of 1.44MB it would be interesting to see how that challenege shapes how people develop their content.

It would be fascinating to see if any static generated magazine style websites popped up had a similar low digital cost and aethetic to the solar powered LOW←TECH MAGAZINE.

I made it so I can export a macintosh disk file directly from noodle, it shows up as a disk with the zoe file within!

I don't even need to use ImportFl anymore. How crazy is that :D

gender 

Let it be known that the first acknowledgement of my gender by my father is him implying that I was more Pimprenelle than Nicolas.

(this reference only works if you're french and old)

hi fedi!

us in the cabal club are spending the next 7 weeks creating a subjective moderation system for cabal: a volunteer-driven & open source p2p project for resilient chat. [1]

we think it's important to ground the implementation in lived experiences, hearing concerns, and just listening to other people a bit

we're looking for people to interview & prioritizing those who identify as trans and/or women. please dm me if you are interested

thank you!

I start to have a small collection of .txt notes (now more using "Left" for convenience and more organized docs) and, I think I need a platform to post them.

I'd love a more centralized solution to post other stuff too in the future in a more organized way (a wiki? ) but in the meantime, what platform/website do use or recommend to blog?

such a shame that CDE while somehow still working in 2020 has too many security issues to use for real because it's still so dang beautiful i mean just look at it

It doesn't exist anymore but decades ago, I never experienced it but, there was this chain of supermarkets in France named mammouth and this is one of my favourite logo of all time.

And I think about it every time I read or see Mastodon

My contribution to #hyperjam will be to share some ancient content for inspiration. Jaime Levy had a #HyperCard and MacroMind (yes!) Director magazine on floppy called Cyber Rag. Here are some pics!
