Uploading my collection of music to my :funkwhale: instance is really interesting.

Today I was reminded how influential The Art of Noise records were for me. Judging more by the release dates, I was probably 13 when I bought The Ambient Collection and Below The Waste vinyls. A year or two later I got The Fon Mixes from a local dealer.

How much personal history is within those tracks it's incredible. Such formative years in fact.

An enormous tower filled with 100 tons of bronze bells, some the size of a car, that you play with a massive keyboard at the top of the tower.

It is not exactly new story and I am not sure if this made the rounds in fediverse but a few days ago #archiveofourown won the hugo award on best related work. We have a huge #FLOSS community here but we don't talk nearly enough about this project.

#ao3 is an unique opensourced project that is not male dominated and also not started by people who were fulltime engineers but fans who decided enough is enough and we need to own our servers.

Congrats to Ao3!

Open Call for contributions

Eclectic Tech Carnival 2019

8 - 13 October in Athens, Greece

Halt and Catch Fire

/ETC is a gathering of feminists, who critically use/study/share/improve everyday information technologies in the context of the free software and open hardware movements.

We strongly believe that an empowering event is one in which everyone actively contributes to its realization. For this reason, we would love to receive plenty of suggestions for activities, presentations, workshops etcetera.

We invite you, women and FNTI persons (females, non-binaries, trans, intersexuals) to kindly submit your proposal by Monday, 2 September 2019, at whatever time zone is comfortable for you.

Please send an email to this address:


Looking forward to seeing you in Athens!

Reminder to caption your images if possible!

Please help those of us on here who use screenreaders!

If it's too much text or something, at least a small summary so they know it's not just a blank box!


I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist

you can go to an online screen reader site like this one to check out the difference it makes: ttsreader.com #accessibility
