Right now, you can get away from urban light pollution, but if SpaceX and other private companies have their way, 1 in 15 stars in the night sky will actually be a satellite, worldwide, anytime within 2 hours of sunrise and sunset. It's really crappy that we are losing this.
How can I improve the https://fediverse.info people directory?
I have a few ideas:
- Allow registration via statuses that contain hashtag topics so you don't need to pollute your bio
- User avatars (held off on this as it would require moderation)
- Topic intersection (group results by multiple topics)
- Filter by instance/domain
- Use localStorage to keep track of profiles you seen to show fresher results
@Ozzzylot @Curator @bestiaexmachina Stuff I learned in art school twenty something years ago... There's a history of the particular color blue used in graph paper, and some lined notebook paper. It get called non-repro, or non-photo blue. Photocopiers have always been programed to not pick up that color. But before Xerox there was a particular film used in the copy cameras in the print industry that did not pick up that color.

An appeal for help:
Trunk is an opt-in directory of people on Mastodon and the Fediverse looking for followers, organised into a large range of topics:
Anyone can ask to be added, and the admins of Trunk check the account (to screen out spam etc) and add them.
However, due to the need to check the contents of accounts, this Trunk only includes people who post mainly in English. It means they have to turn away a lot of non-English accounts.
The Trunk admins want to fix this situation.
Do you use a language other than English? Do you want to help make a version of Trunk in your own language?
The English Trunk admins can help you with the technical side, but they need people who speak other languages to moderate Trunks in those other languages.
➡️ Can you help? If so, get in touch with @kensanata who leads the Trunk project.
(There is a Spanish Trunk at https://trunkesp.chilemasto.casa but so far no other languages.)
* your jokes/memes - it's no good saying "this is just silly, you're not missing anything"; let us be the judge of that! Also, being disabled isn't about being dull and worthy all the time.
* your artwork - I'm so sad when I see cool art I can't boost (and sometimes can't even discern :) )
* your gifs and videos - description isn't just for still images!
* your audio clips - yep, these can be described too!
#WritingCommunity Tell me about the genre(s) you write in and what you’re currently working on. Do you have books out already?
Marconi joined the Italian Fascist party in 1923. He was a Fascist apologist and active supporter.
Mussolini appointed him president of the Royal Academy, making him a member of the Fascist Grand Council.
the moment it gains "legitimacy" is when we start having to play nice with the people who will usurp and kick us out of the spaces we fucking built
fuck legitimacy and respectability. corporations and governments can fuck off.
I do Art, Music, Writing, Programming. They/Them, Enby, Pan.
