Pinned toot

i dont see favorites or boosts -- im here for "actual" social engagement with real people. mentions are the only thing i get notifications about, so if you think we'd get along, dont just follow me, say hi!

i love having a dialogue; treat me with dignity and ill return the favor. im open to discussions about everything, if you approach them in the right way.

not everything has to be serious.

working on something for the patreons!

took me a while to find software to handle captioning. it's by hand (I do it by hand until it hurts!)

follow me on there to get alerted when it drops! patreon.com/jackyalcine

@gekitsu Hard agree. Folks want to get puffy about it, but it just is what it is.

If you want to be an ass, then fine, but don't complain when you're treated like one.

What if the response to tumblr being banned from the app store was tumblr making its mobile web version usable instead of being shit and literally insulting you for trying to like a post

when you bond with new people over vim 😎😊

lowkey jamming out to drake.

i need a freaking drink

it's fucking 9.30am on a Tuesday and i wanna get lit af.

i havent wanted to party this bad since i was in America.

also im finally coming to terms with being a chameleon. my mum always used to say that about me, but i never bought it. it's very much true though. if we hang out for a while I'll adopt your behaviour and some of your patterns of speech.

i think this is why im always seeking out cool people because i become like them. but i know this also dangerous because if i hang out with the wrong crew, ill fall back to my bad habits.

man i just got stopped by this lovely human being because we were both vaping and we just talked for an hour and it was lovely.

sometimes people really are awesome.

@max @anish @tindall the answer is, I suspect, cultural. we have been taught myths about Great Men for so long that we do not realize the degree to which we've internalized the notion that achievement comes from point sources, from single brilliant geniuses who Make Things Happen

@tindall tbh I _wish_ we had more designers and experience experts who gave a shit about free technology. Their industry looks positioned to do what the "open source" community does in tech currently; idolatry and exaltation. Hence the homogeneity of a lot of big websites today in design @mona

@tindall this is a very fair thing to point out: there _should_ be a place for the lone-wolf programmer, although I feel strongly that mythology about solo creators changing the world all by themselves has strongly informed programming culture and ought to be rooted out, or at least put into some better social context.

The Fediverse is an experiment in speaking what you want into reality and that's beautiful

i'm so tired of Professionalism

please allow employees to also be human thank u

i would say though that a really nice and helpful #NewPotentialExcitingMastodonFeature ™️ would be a way to filter phrases into a CW rather than just hiding them outright. If you need a thing behind a content warning but you can't guarantee that people will consistently cw it, set up something that makes toots containing the phrase appear beneath a cw on your feed. That would go a long way to helping people manage what they see.
