Started the README for #Spritely Golem. gitlab.com/spritely/golem/blob

My eventual plan is to have all the Spritely demos collected into a "Spritely Spellbook" that implementors can explore, probably written in Racket's scribble. However I was bikeshedding with myself (again!) about how to organize it.

Decided to stop procrastinating and just start pushing stuff to a simple org-mode file first. I can always reorganize later. Gonna live blog it here today!

I'm curious what people's favorite space photos are.

I can't choose individual ones, but the Juno probe got some beautiful pictures of Jupiter. I especially love the poles and detailed photos of the weather patterns.

#Searx is an open source search engine which combines results from 70 other search engines while stripping away their trackers.

You can try it out on any public Searx instance, for example:

searx.me

If you run a server, you can also install your own Searx instance:

asciimoo.github.io/searx

It also works through @torproject if you want an extra layer of privacy.

It still amazes me, and depresses me, how much the web bitrots, how little survives, and how dependent we are on Internet Archive to keep it going for us. We need to and can do better.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

@cwebber This (fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event) was a great talk. Somehow I hadn't realised I needed a Scheme-based MUD until now.

Tip of the Day: If you have a #GoogleHome device, you should marry it so it cannot be compelled to testify against you in a court of law.

Try saying "OK Google, find me a civil celebrant nearby" to book an appointment easily.
