Hey friendos! Ottawa Processing Day 2019 is over, which means my talk is done, which means I can experience joy again instead of just anxiety about giving my talk.
Please find attached this image of the Tilde Town Time Service that ran back in November 2017.
It's really more of an artists rendition - as it was created post-facto - but I actually built a working speaker amplifier on breadboard for authenticity reasons.
"There are No Girls on the Internet" seems like a pretty tilde-feels relevant podcast -- https://www.iheart.com/podcast/1119-there-are-no-girls-on-the-65877505/episode/how-women-built-the-internet-67251360/ -- things felt really wide open when anonymity on the Internet was _positive_ thing (which it is so frequently _not_, now).
One thing that I think helps make @tildetown (and other tildes) great is that you're just represented by a username.
You're not asked to fill in your real name, or upload an avatar picture. Just going by your Unix username is a kind of ~90's pseudonym.
https://www.matrixresolutions.com/ -- so early 2000's aesthetic. a) The Matrix, b) Green on Black (see a) c) Frames, d) Fixed resolution (see c)
@acdw The Vault was a fun few minutes, thanks for sticking it on Gemini.
@m455 I just read and enjoyed your Lisp blog post
