I had to back Porchlight and Manosque (I'm a sucker for fonts based on signage from French transit systems).

NYC folks: if you'd like a free ticket to my day long workshop this Friday about, essentially, how to run a great Mastodon instance for your community, I have discount codes!

It's based on my runyourown.social guide but it uses the guide as a jumping off point and I get into some of the nitty gritty, including things like "how to stay on top of Mastodon releases and keep your community informed of new features if you don't know anything about programming"

Looking for advice on managing design docs in version control. I found CouchDB Bootstrap, but I’m not sure if the project is still active. I’ve had trouble finding anything written recently with recommendations for structuring CouchDB projects.

I made a simple, weird image editor called Freeconfig that let's you push image pixels around in blocks.

For all that you're admonished for "reinventing the wheel," one thing you don't have to deal with very if you're not using someone else's framework are inscrutable stack traces from nowhere in the code that you've written due to all of the control the framework inverts.

@scott @kristinHenry It seems like Mastodon 3.0 introduced trending hashtags, and along with it, a moderation feature for hashtags.

How do you to two feel about moderating hashtags? I'm inclined to disable moderation of hashtags, since (I think) users can block hashtags they don't want to see. And we can rely on reports of awful hashtags.

I'd also be ok disabling trending hashtags altogether, but maybe we could poll our members on that?

Got my copy of the new Parks book from standardsmanual.com/ yesterday. The US National Parks Service has had such beautiful photography and graphic design throughout its history. And it’s such a treat to see pamphlets from the parks in my home state of Colorado. There’s one cover for a Mesa Verde pamphlet from 1916!

This is definitely giving the EPA style guide a run for its money as my favorite Standards Manual.

@nervous_jessica any idea when you’ll be printing more hyphae lamps? We bought our first house earlier this year and have found the perfect spot for one. I’ve wanted one for years and am just so excited 😆
