Surely you've been wondering, when on earth is @librelounge going to talk about ActivityPub? Especially since I'm co-host and that's a major part of my work!
Well, here's an episode that's *entirely* about ActivityPub! https://librelounge.org/episodes/episode-12-activitypub-part-1.html
It's the second in a series about federation. There's more coming!
@librelounge The reason we put off talking about federation and ActivityPub until a few months into the show was actually because we wanted to make sure we had enough of a feel about how to do these shows before we tackled a topic that's so important to us. I feel like now's a good time though!

Okay @librelounge listeners, time to get real... Doing video was way harder than I imagined, so I'm going to release the next episode tomorrow sans video. But...
I should have the start of a post about ReviewPub out later that day, and hopefully a video in a few days. That's my hope/goal. No more delaying the episode though.
The hardest part of editing @librelounge is that I'm so used to working with audio in the background and I can't do that while editing audio. :)
How do they get video games into such small amounts of memory? This game developer shows some of the tips and tricks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWQ0591PAxM
I just recorded a video that I hope to release along with the next @librelounge episode. Now to actually edit!

Do you care about diversity in role playing games? I know you do!
It's the final 24 hours of my friend Sean's kickstarter where he's making a zine all about diversity in tabletop role playing.
After some tweaking to get the code to byte-compile, I've made it run at 1.6 FPS (author claims 1 FPS interpreted). Thanks to frameskip you can actually see things move. Here's a recording of Tetris in demo mode:
The history of Lisp is the history of computing, which shows how women's contributions are looked over/past. Also lisp is cool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGY3uBHVVr4
Police in Canada are tracking people and intervening if they predict they will become criminals ala Minority Report: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/kzdp5v/police-in-canada-are-tracking-peoples-negative-behavior-in-a-risk-database
So uh some super exciting news in our personal life... yesterday @mlemweb and I just bought a house! We got a good deal on it, it has plenty of space (even though a lot of the spaces are kind of delightfully weird), and it's in a part of town we're happy with. Excited to have a place to finally, finally settle down in after so many years of moving. Broke it in with our first tabletop game night last evening.
(If I've seem background distracted lately, this is a good portion of why!)
