The thing I love about text is that it can be presented in any medium! Images! Audio! Touch! Though to get richtext to render across all these mediums you need to separate off the semantics.

Hypertext can be navigated using just a couple of buttons, though more than that is always nicer!

A simplified web is a great "metaplatform"! To use a term from a nonsensical rant I read yesterday...

had to explain RSS to two fellow gen z-ers

me: its kind of like subscribing for updates on a website, before "following" was a thing.

them: oh, is that something new?

me: actually closed "following" on walled gardens, like twitter, kind of killed out a lot of RSS for our generation, but there are people who still use it and find it handy

them: wait, so i don't need to make an account?

me: no.

time for a joint operation between Wikipedia, the Internet Archive, Project Gutenberg, and Software Heritage to emboss the intellectual commons onto diamond tablets so that when the next sapient race emerges on this planet all this work is not for naught

Hi @Castopod!

I just imported Sconnesso, my podcast, on my self-hosted instance, sconnesso.link

Now, can I safely delete the feed and the audio and image files hosted elsewhere, or Castopod is still fetching the data from there and only mirroring it?

@yarmo @EU_Commission It is true. In any case, let us value their presence anyways!

@tgupper How about all three? I am most definitely interested!

Save an exam the same day at 4:41 AM. Let’s do it.

Greetings Fediverse!

I'm looking for work. I'm a junior developer with experience working in open source communities, but without professional work experience.

I have experience leading open-source projects, participating in open source communities, and programming in several languages. I can comfortably write Go, Python, C, Rust, and Zig.

I've also have some experience as a sysadmin (e.g. I run benign.town).

For more info, feel free to DM. 🙂

CV available upon request.

@friend Could you please share it? I haven’t learned yet, but I intend to package everything in an implementation that is simpler to install, such as a theme or am extension.

Having some inspiration would be great!

@hacknorris Exactly the same as it would normally. There is just a bit less of space.
