#introductions Hi makestuff.club! I've been looking to move off mast.soc for ages now now, but been waiting for the right combo on nice URL and COC. So here I am!
I'm an artist from Melbourne, Australia. For the past-- five? years I've mostly been doing web-based and game stuff. But I always at least have some little drawing or constructing or gardening project going to get me away from the computer.
I've hoping joining this instance will encourage me to share that stuff more!
I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

Physiologically reactive aversion to noises Show more
So, this thing I’ve suffered my whole life that people thought was just me being prim and prissy? Turns out it has a neurological reason for the extreme anger and discomfort I feel, and is totally not me being a frilly lace wrist gloved brat.

Been playing a bit of Valkyria Chronicles. Working well in Wine. Enjoying it a bunch! It has Aika and Vyse from Skies of Arcadia! I like that all the characters have these negative traits like being lonely or afraid of metal or allergic to pollen. Some have crushes, and a few people are even not straight. There's this weird hair racism.
But like it's anime, so nothing's handled that well.
My fave lancer Yoko died—got run over by a very big tank before I could save her :’(
