I never finished watching The Office until today.

I'm not crying... you're crying!

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 gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/bl

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.

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?

Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.

The Movie Database is a free community-run alternative to IMDB, unlike amazon's shitty website, TMDB isn't full to bursting with ads, trackers and sluggish JavaScript, and provides an excellent platform for folk to catalogue information about their favorite films without being marketed to.

Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.

Hey awesome listeners,

No show this week. @cwebber and @emacsen are pretty busy with other projects they can't wait to tell you about!

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.

Apply by July 22nd and start August 12th or September 23rd."


This is an incredible opportunity – if you want to be part of a diverse, kind programming community, and spend three months focusing on projects close to your heart, this is your chance! Happy to answer any questions you might have! \o/

When you read your own tests in your code and wonder what the heck they do... it might be time to take a break

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.


Just told a whole bunch of people about my anti-spam ActivityPub paper by sending them an unsoliited message.

...best not to think about it.

I don't know if this paper will be accepted, or accepted in this form (it's quite long, so i may pull only one or two suggestions out and submit that) but I want to get this in front of eyes early.

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:
