Pinned toot

Found myself speaking with the parent of a small child I was amusing* at a restaurant:

"Are you an actor?"
"Nope."
"A comedian?"
"Not exactly. Why do you ask?"
"Well, you're very animated..."
"And yet, you didn't ask if I was a cartoon."

*OK, truth be told, we were amusing each other.



#OrishaLand now has a Wikipedia page 🎉

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orisha_L

At the moment, though, most of the third-party sources which could be used to expand the article are openly hostile to the Black autonomist project. Seems like the best way to expand it at the moment is to cite 400+1's own media and to create pages/articles/whatever elsewhere on the internet that are informative without the hostility. (Those also help people who don't wanna turn to Wikipedia or mega-corporate social media to learn about or keep up with the autonomous zone!!)

Hello Friday!

The end of another week, and almost time for the sanity saver that is hanging out with friendly people in the video chat!

Tonight's the Emperor Norton Coffee Hour, which is a fancy way of saying we will open the chat an hour early for coffee and conversation.

We've met some lovely new folks this past week. Thank you for the boosts that spread the word!

See you tonight starting at 7pm UTC-6!

After months of working from home, I went to the #office again today, to welcome a new apprentice to our team (she's quite cool, btw). One problem arose, though. The #coffee machine hasn't been used for months and was out of order. The portable stove broke when switched on. NOCOFFEEREDALERT!!1!

Call it coincidence, luck, destiny - another colleague had a pressing iron in one of his desk drawers...

#Problem. #Solved.

PS: We're the IT department. #GNU / #Linux #sysadmins. Why are you asking?

"But Sierra, how DO you trick AI training algorithms and sabotage surveillance capitalism?"

It's easy! all you need is a pen and paper

Show thread

"There are sober men a plenty,
And drunkards barely twenty..."

Wait a minute, that's Rambling Rover.

I'm supposed to be posting about !

"There are artists there a plenty,
And clowns being friendly..."

I'd better stick to circus. This folk song writing thing is hard!

Join us tonight starting at 8pm UTC-6 for shenanigans a plenty...

Thank you for being kind today, fedi.

I'm so happy to have you as a refuge.

vaguely snarking about politics, TX - 

Etiquette question:

Can I subtoot an entire state government at once, or do I need to call out each person and organization who seems to be doing their level best to kill me individually?

Asking for a friend, who is me, stuck in Texas.

No discourse please, it's been a day and I'm too worn out and afraid.

We're so happy to announce hardware hacker and digital fabrication expert @nadyapeek as our next keynote for #LibrePlanet 2021: Empowering Users! Nadya's work is inspiring, and we're looking forward to hearing more about it. u.fsf.org/39x

Attention weird people!

Your virtual tribe will be gathering this evening to converse about topics esoteric, breathe the increasingly rare air found in taking a break from the grimdark of the world, and watch clowns bench press each other.

We call this

This non-mandatory meeting of the minds begins at 8pm UTC-6, and all are welcome.

I checked my todo list and found this entry, which I will share with no explanation because it works on so many levels:

NEVER STOP EXPLORING YOUR WEIRD, AND NEVER BE AFRAID IF YOU FIND THAT YOU ARE WEIRDER THAN YOU BELIEVED. THANK "BOB" FOR THAT.
