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!

honestly feel sick right now, just learnt about the websites scihub, libgen, and b-ok which I heard can be used to access information free of charge! please make sure to stay away from these sites and make sure to tell your friends so they can stay away too :02_peek:

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.

Hey, you.

👉 You are worthy of love. 👈

Every day. Up days. Down days. In bed days. In the street days. In the gutter days. On the moon days.

👉 You are worthy of love every dang day. 👈

Yes, you.

"Pirate site blocking making its way into free trade agreements"

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.

It is our honor and privilege to introduce you to Van Mai, the innovator who brought female representation to home video games 40 years ago.

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.


W3C tech in the wild: "Firefox’s Picture-in-Picture rolls out subtitles" "The subtitles and captions available on ...all websites that support the emerging W3C standard called WebVTT (Web Video Text Track) format, such as Twitter and Coursera"

we're supporting a study on the role modders and rom hackers play in games preservation and archiving - if that description fits you and you'd be willing to participate in an interview, fill out the form here:

it's just the device that's tiny. the crimes are absolutely appalling.

on today's episode of Things I Love About Embedded C:
when a library claims to "require no external libraries", and then you go to compile it for your device and find it actually depends on basically half of POSIX and no configuration options exist to change that.

Subtoot, racism 

"I care about justice and everyone’s rights, black or white does not matter to me at all."

Then you don't really care about justice and everyone's rights, mate. :blobglare:


RT 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

me, one year HRT: trans people are just people! pronouns, name changes — it’s not weird or difficult. just be respectful!

me, nine years HRT: my people know the true name of god and nothing you can threaten could ever destroy what we represent.
