one commonality I hear in story after story of people switching to alternative social media (the whole spectrum: tildes, Gemini, indieweb, fedi, etc.) is the shock and ensuing relief at the absence of the eyeball hose. you get used to engagement/interaction counts being in the single digits, and it's kind of freeing
blind person looking for a keypad
My national org for the Blind has been out of Orbit braille gear for a while and they don't seem to be restocking anytime soon, and the site doesn't seem to ship outside of the US at the moment.
I am looking for either:
- An USian willing to send a package to Spain so I can buy the actual Orbit 20 braille typing keyboard.
- Advice on bluetooth keypads and programming them for braille on Android and Windows.
- Someone who builds keyboards who could make a small wireless keypad for braille and navigation (6 to 16 keys)
I live in Spain, in case you need to account for shipping and such.

Wondering if I can get recent changes in OpenLibrary in something other than JSON: https://openlibrary.org/dev/docs/api/recentchanges
Pretty odd that there's an RSS feed at https://aldaily.com/feed/ - but I get a sort of rate limiting error when I try to get to it ... maybe they've not noticed?
