after over a year on the fediverse, i think i've figured out what this is and where we are.

this is where people are either indepedent artists exploring their digital identities freely without compromise or

the platform of the commons for people that were banned or scorned by other platforms for whatever reason.

it's possible to be both, but i don't think it is possible to be neither. it's possible to spectrum on either axis.

in this year, i've found myself to be more drawn to the artists and and repelled by the soldiers. i've exhibited traits from every different angle. i know i was angry and bitter for a while. like. i was never not spiteful on the internet until like super recently.

i'm getting better every day.

if you post things you enjoy on the internet, thank you.

if you post things you hate, get help.

@tindall I think a lot about all the friends I've lost due to decisions made in conference rooms by people looking at charts trying to get promotions.

Self Portrait of myself.

Unlike most self portraits, I am flashing two peace signs.

This was taken today on a Fujifilm Finepix JX on a tripod with a 10 second timer, double exposure. one with flash and one without.

This is the version with flash, so my skin is a little over exposed. So like, hella white. My blue eyes pop against the contrast.

My smirk covers my teeth, my biggest insecurity.

I'm wearing a snapback hat backwards, my hair flowing out from underneath.

My 80s style wristwatch peeks out from under the left sleeve of a sweatshirt of Atari's Missle Command arcade game.

A table is behind me, with a bubble maker and bubbles on top with a cooler below it.

I'm squatting for no other reason than not being quite sure where the frame began and ended.

The photo was taken to test lighting conditions for a family photo.

One and done, but I really like my style. I wear the watch every day. I regularly wear the sweatshirt...

Free as in free beer
Free as in free speech
Free as in free puppy
Free as in free from
Free as in free to

When you talk about freedom, which one do you mean?

Personally, I'm usually talking free puppy because it is a lot of work to take care of it, but it is well worth the effort if you can handle the commitment.

Hey, I'm TyChi. You might have seen me other places in the small web, but this is my hangout spot.

Keep it cool.

2020-2021: the time i decided to dig further into my own personal echo chambers to figure out the dirty nasty bits and scrub them off to not to be a self-absorbed prick anymore.

join my culture war

some of it is real
some of it is imagined

all of it is a waste of time

i saved half a breakfast burrito 3 days earlier.

i ate it yesterday. i half regret it today.

i'm so glad it wasn't a whole burrito.

in two days i will be performing a wedding ceremony for my dad and my step mom. they've been together like 27 years, so to summarize how casual it is: i'm performing the ceremony for it.

thought about shit posting but it's more shit than post these days and we are desperately in need of more post.

pre-emptive: i did it today!

disappointment: i probably won't keep doing it. i've got palmar hyperhidrosis. that's doctor slang for my hands get sweaty.

I think i shook hands with more people today than any single day of my life and for someone with palmar hyperhidrosis, it is single-handedly the most uncomfortable situation to regularly find oneself in.

technically i logged into fedi after midnight. computing loophole?

i've tried a new thing this week.

i'm not allowed to use my computer after work. i'm only able to use it before work.

i set an alarm at 5am. i decide between "sleep more" or "do creative computer things" so far i've landed on sleep more every day, but if I can get inspired, we'll see...

been on a multi-year journey to detox from unrelenting techno-complexity.

installed filezilla last night.

ftp is my future again.
