Does anyone remember the name of the Best of CC project that @methoddan has/was working on? I'm not able to find it with this incomplete name/memory.
This design document shows some very interesting thinking.
I'd already been planning an episode on some of these topics for a future @librelounge .
Really time to get out the old org-mode document to write my ideas out.
I've finished writing part 1 of "OcapPub: Towards networks of consent", which is to say the "Conceptual Overview" section https://gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/blob/master/README.org
There's a lot there already, and we haven't even gotten to Part 2, the "How to Build It" section yet. I'll begin work on that tomorrow.
What's here already is more or less an explanation of *why* OcapPub is taking the particular direction it is taking, and why other approaches run into serious problems.
I'm having a bit of a family emergency. I need to take time off for a while. That means no new @librelounge for a while.
I have a ton of episodes planned out with @cwebber- exciting stuff about Lisp, about adventures with Git, about ActivityPub, DataShards, Spritely, and some exciting guests.
We'll be on a hiatus, but not forgotten- promise.
I don't discuss diet stuff all that much, but I've been doing keto about a year. When I stick to it, I lose weight reliably and am slowly approaching a more healthy weight.
What's equally important isn't just eating more fat, but the sources of my food. Eating less processed food, fewer artificial colors/flavors, more healthy oils, and (especially important for keto people to hear) less processed/artificial fiber.
These are key parts of what makes keto a healthy diet, not just more fat.
an Amazon alternative: WorldCat Show more
During the #AmazonStrike running on the 15th and 16th today, here's another alternative to know about:
WorldCat is a catalog of books and media that helps you find out if the book you want is available at *any* library systems near you.
Tips for using WorldCat: Don't forget that (in the US, at least), university and college libraries are open to the public, since your tax dollars pay for them. Remember about interlibrary loans, too: if a book's not available near you, you can ask for it to ne lent temporarily to your local library.
#ActivityPub supports Groups. I'm wondering if anyone has developed something like a mailing list for AP yet?
I want to have a technical group ala a mailing list.
Anyone know of anything like this yet?
Opera singers dubbed with dial up modems are gonna be big this summer
Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.
Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.
Hey! :) The Recurse Center is "funding Fellowships of up to $10,000 for women, trans, and non-binary people to work on programming projects, research, and art at RC this fall.

A lesson on why chasing advertising dollars in podcasting is an overall losing affair.
First (very tentative) release of the Uncannonical S-Expression Parser for Python. I need to do a bunch of stuff before this is ready for PyPy.
This is a draft of what I'll hopefully be submitting to Rebooting Web of Trust. If anyone would like to take a look, constructive feedback welcome:
