#introduction hi everyone! I am a she/her interested in way too many things, but not great at many (which I am very comfortable with 😁): drawing, knitting, video and board games, dungeon mastering, machine learning. I also enjoy reading and watching movies and TV, and am actually pretty good at those 😅 looking forward to getting to know everyone!
I'm working for a big tech company in California. Yesterday all employees received an email from our security guys.
We have to deactivate all personal assistant gadgets (like Alexa) during worktime in the homeoffice.
They have evidence that these gadgets are recording audio from conference calls.
Nothing new to me but notable that I've got this order.

question to all trans people with children. Does your role in family (mother / father) align with your gender? Mainly as how you and your children see you and talk to or about you? Replies with more detailed explanation are more than welcome.
For the context, I'm trans woman and father. I consider it as a very loose role that isn't tied to gender.

I've started my Master, my research question so far surrounds the idea of what electronic platforms add to the portrayal of queer bodies as others, often intermingling with beastly and monstrosity metaphors (often very positively)
I want to find queer creators of electronic art with a focus on body or emotional experiences. Twine hypertext, games, bots, poetry online, even twitter feeds or instagram.
If you wanna talk then DM or email firstname.lastname@example.org
@Tusky I noticed that the bookmarks don't seem to work (that section always gives out an error). Is it a common problem? Could it be instance related?
I'm a 26 year old #artist who specializes in digital #art and #illustration. I like drawing weird plants and environments. I tend to spend hours painting the same details over and over again with tiny brushes.
The creative world can be pretty tough so I'm looking forward to hanging out with you all and helping each other survive/grow.
Sorry about the redraft, I noticed a sentence error and it bothered me.
We will be getting another cat this week! This one is a grown-up (a "young adult") and apparently when people go out to feed them they just follow them and ask for pets while ignoring the food we are looking at at least a month of socialisation. We have been catless for... three weeks?? Feels like forever 😅
pursuer of too many hobbies, one of em leftists, hugger of cats, likes data science and hates that it is done by a bunch of idiots
