I don't really talk about it because I haven't put enough work into it, but #IAmNonbinary (but I have a lot of imposter syndrome about it). Any pronouns are ok, but I think the Spivak-derived ones are great for me (and society)
If you didn't know before, I guess you do now.
In the spirit of trying to share more stuff over here in tootland: I was on a local tech-focused radio show this week, and they've posted video of the show taping. Watch me slouch down in my chair and be awkward for most of an hour!
Youtube, Free Culture, Music
I wish more folks in the Free Culture/Remix communities would talk about the Daikon IV movie...
It's a mix of superhoes, monsters, sci-fi and a playboy bunny, all to the music of Electric Light Orchestra.
Calls themselves @lain, posts like Haruko Haruhara.
Read an article about how the DMCA is being used to fight people from allowing people to use their own modified health devices.
Explaining DMCA to someone, I found an old article about myself. I've been thinking about this stuff for over twenty years. #old
Would love if Mastodon supported editing posts, rather than just "delete and re-draft" so spelling errors wouldn't be there forever.
Does Pleroma support the Modify activity?
This doesn't even mention the anti-semetic attack on the subway last week....
Nor the attack in the deli in Jersey City, just across the river from NYC.
There is a serious issue where the various media powers are choosing to deliberately block Bernie Sanders from not only being elected, but being visible as a candidate!
It's called Bernie Blindness, and this Reddit comment collects the evidence for it.
I've also seen it in the 2016 election by the Washington Post.
This is very serious:
me seeing my cat (Crispin d'Familiar): "Jump into my arms!"
me thinking to myself: Given infinite time and an infinite number of Crispins, there is a Crispin that will jump into my arms.
me again: Given an infinite number of Crispins, there will be a Crispin who replies back, "No, jump into MY arms."
Ignorance, Cultural Erasure
Disney is trying to be woke, but in doing so, they're ignoring major issues.
1. Sephardic Jews are not "Latinx"
2. Sephardic Jews don't speak Yiddish or have Ashkenazi customs, "Bubbie", "Gelt", etc. Why not show actual Sephardic customs?
3. The whole "Hanukkah episode" thing also bugs me The only time gentiles seem to portray us (Jews) is on this most minor holiday, rather than on the holidays or customs that matter to *us*.
