tiny piece done. I actually finished it last night but hard to photograph it in the middle of night...

And now I REALLY need to go shop for markers. :D

To take a break from larger projects and everything else happening this week, I started a tiny drawing. They don't look much in this stage but here it is.

Not everyone can self host software systems.

Not everyone wants to self host software systems.

Not everyone gives a shit about tech

Most people just want to go online, do their thing and move on with their day

If there is a mass exodus from GitHub / GitLab or others we people hosting our own infra need to be good about discovery, community building, community engagement and more.

We also need to figure out how to federate authn/authz. I'll skip over submitting small things if it means yet another account on yet another server run by yet another random.

Centralization isn't great but it does facilitate discovery, community and engagement.

We need to keep this at the back of our mind.

Sometimes a photograph wants to be 2 different things. I had a very clear vision of the story I wanted to tell with this picture and larger series, so that crop ended up being what it is. However, in this case, it does break my heart a little because the original is a very powerful photo in itself. So here it is, for posterity. ;)

(oh.. the cost of this photo was a 4-day long headache, and it was the last photo taken before retreating indoors.)

"What the Lightning Left Behind" is yet another of the images from the ongoing sky related project.

@eloisa @wim_v12e @entuall @kemonine it is not at all related to the artistic practice... well... I do have a self portrait that does that. *points at the icon* but I know at least one website that requires "actual photo of you. can't be digitally altered"

@wim_v12e @entuall @eloisa @kemonine there is a part of me that is all for encouraging more art, the other half still has the concerns outlined above ;)

The former is winning through so...

DO IT!!!!!! ;)

@entuall @eloisa @kemonine I like how I look just fine, but I'd rather be visually remembered for my work, not me as a face as the latter has nothing to do with my current artistic practice. I guess I am too old fashioned now? ;)

Anyhow... thank you!! :)

@entuall @eloisa @kemonine I honestly don't know? :) I used to think so (and ok I still think so) but then there is this expectation of having professional or candid portraits in any network, where it is expected that you are seen in a certain way, and must be visually documenting your physical features. this is especially, increasingly required for gig economy style work, which is doubly frustrating.

I think a self-portrait is the expression of your vision of yourself, not really the way you really look like, no ?

And it's a beautiful photo, by the way !

By all means, #movingtogitlab-dot-com does not solve the problem GitHub has (centralization), and moving to a privately hosted GitLab re-introduces the problem GitHub mostly solved (separation).

#GitPub is trying to solve this problem by defining a federation protocol for git services: github.com/git-federation/gitp

@bobstechsite @deadsuperhero This made me laugh out loud. :)) Although, well... it would still be owned by a single entity (centralized) ;)

@deadsuperhero wouldn't that be centralizing through? *ducks the incoming object*
