A slightly megalomaniacal computer enthusiast.

So... what *is* "Mastodon" and "the Fediverse"? See my website for an intro!

I am largely fine with boosting posts from people I disagree with even on significant, dividing issues. I usually don't, however, if they actively advocate for these ideas... so it goes :(

Note: doesn't support DMs

Fascinating story:

At first the police just wanted two hours of footage from this guy's doorbell Ring cam.

"It was just the beginning.

They asked for more footage, now from the entire day’s worth of records. And a week later, Larkin received a notice from Ring itself: The company had received a warrant, signed by a local judge. The notice informed him it was obligated to send footage from more than 20 cameras — whether or not Larkin was willing to share it himself."

I just got a really cool idea -

Why don't I go live this weekend via, perhaps, PCM audio at You could use parec and pacat and netcat to "tune in" to the port and we could have a live chat only for anyone who has the technical know-how to connect!
And maybe if you want to hide your voice - well, you get to figure that out. Pipe through espeak maybe?

You don't need separate accounts to interact with different kinds of Fediverse servers.

For example, if you have a Mastodon account you can follow PeerTube accounts such as @theatticdwellers or @alliterative and their videos will appear in your Mastodon timeline as if they were Mastodon posts.

If you reply to a PeerTube video within Mastodon, the reply will also appear as a comment below that video on PeerTube. (And comments made on PeerTube will appear as replies on Mastodon.)
