I’ve written some ridiculous code in the last few decades. I think the time has come for me to write yet another RSS reader thing.

We had such a blast at #CTC26 this weekend. Great people working on two excellent project, the most mature of which is #OpenData #Scotland, a national portal to make up for no government provided one.

Have a look at opendata.scot

It's now almost fully automated using #githubactions

We pull data of many formats, from many government sources, of varying types, categorise it and index it using #JKAN.

We have 1054 dataset, only 71 of which are not yet categorised.

My laptop camera is on. How do I find out what app i using it? #ubuntu?

Is there a "Share to Mastodon" URI scheme?

Like, I can share to twitter with
twitter .com/intent/tweet?url=https%3A%2F%2Fexample.com%2F
Telegram has:
telegram .me/share/url?url=https%3A%2F%2Fexample.com%2F

What would I put if I wanted people to share my URl to Mastodon?

I still can’t really understand the RideLondon website: ridelondon.co.uk - is this something the public can take part in?

Hey #Fosstodon, does anyone here know of a beginning developer, in need, that could use a #Linux laptop gratis? I have a Starlabs Laptop IV that I don't use. Please boost for visibility.

Is there an Android app that works like a Walkie-Talkie (only) within the same WiFi network?

Like an intercom: without having to manually start the app on the receiving side, a sender is able to push a button in the app and say something that the receiving phone is playing back instantly (if available in the WiFi).

Dipping into perl again after some time away. My goodness now I remember why I loved perl so much, but there's always something new to learn: effectiveperlprogramming.com/2

At @emfcamp@twitter.com we have many public APIs - everything from current beers in the bar to temperatures in toilets - but we're awful at documenting & promoting them. We want to fix that.

Would you like to help people make things with weird data? Do you like documentation? DM me!

This is something more people should think about before releasing software, not everyone has a 16 core processor and 64GB RAM

Do you work for a union? Perhaps you're thinking of how you can help other union members, or maybe even make the union more accessible to new joiners? You should take a look at jointogether.online - a cooperative making digital tools for trade unions.

Odd request: Does anybody have access to a bell jar and vacuum pump they could lend us for an @emfcamp@twitter.com workshop? A manual pump is fine!

DoES Liverpool, the maker and coworking space that I'm a member of, runs a draw every 3 months to offer a free 6 month desk membership and free 6 month workshop membership to anyone who might otherwise struggle to afford it.
The aim is to give people a chance to get their ideas off the ground.
More details here:
Please take a look if you're in Liverpool and think you might benefit, and share with anyone who might be interested.
