Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.
I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.
The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.
Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!
So, people say you should apply for jobs you're not qualified for, and that ... to me that smells a lot like "github is your resume", advice born of relative privilege that isn't really meaningful to anyone who isn't.
That doesn't necessarily make it bad advice, but not for those reasons. Just that it's a mistake to think of a job as-described as something you're either qualified for or not.

"Pirate site blocking making its way into free trade agreements" https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-site-blocking-is-making-its-way-into-free-trade-agreements-220508/
This is much more serious than "can I get a pirated copy of something". The real effects of stuff like this is control, censorship, and gatekeeping of the internet in general.
A year-long search for a lost video game pioneer comes to a happy conclusion today.

Very few of the features I've worked on have ever gotten their own blog posts, so it's nice that this feature getting a bit of recognition here is one I'm particularly happy with.

@email@example.com It's flagged and off the frontpage again.
I do think it is incredibly funny that dang will personally intervene to take it off the frontpage but does *jack shit* about the rampant homophobia/transphobia that hits the frontpage every other day
