+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.
It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.
But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...
... you felt free.
Clare from #ExtinctionRebellion just ended her #MeaningConf talk *brilliantly*, by asking the audience to talk to each other for a moment about what we do next, and then leaving the stage without us noticing. No applause, no closure. The question and demand is still open. We’re fucked. Do something. Now. 👏🏻
I find #Riot really nice to use on #Android/Linux. It's a shame it's so ugly on GNU/Linux. Maybe something to do with fact it's a website wrapped in #Electron bloat? I'm really looking forward to a native #Matrix app for GNU/Linux, with a less eye-abusing GUI. Hopefully the work being done on apps for mobile GNU/Linux devices like the #Librem5 will also lead to more native app for the desktop.
A productive and frustrating week in the shop: dealing with some of the downsides of being in a community workshop as I push on with my current commission deadline.
A week in the shop: working out how to place and mount a bridge by hand, and other minor details :)
Stoked to wake up and discover that I've had a second of my guitars play on stage at King Tut's in Glasgow!
I went to Glasgow Uni, and back then I'd never have believed that this would be a thing that might happen one day.
A week(end) in the shop: Working through a neck for a commission, trying to bring someone else's guitar back to top notch, and 3D printing a bit of the moon.
A week in and out the shop: fighting truculent tuners, exhibiting at Oggcamp, learning about digital guitars for the less-abled, and random other musings.
We have suspected anthropogenic climate change since 1938, and we've known it's true for decades. We're NOT DOING ENOUGH to protect our civilisation. It's now or never. #ExtinctionRebellion
Damn straight! #ExtictionRebellion at London Bridge this evening doing excellent work.
