@meduz @celia

i am ephemeral with the knowledge that my mind might change tomorrow and whatever i posted yesterday on the internet is archived eternally but may or may not be a reflection of who i am today.

Pinned post

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...

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

Keep it cool.

I will admit. I do admire that TypeScript had the audacity (no affiliation) to copy the syntax of CSS while simultaneously making it more complicated and also incapable of graphics or running natively on any system.

Anybody up for a battle?

It's glitchy, but sometimes you match with a human. It's prototype code I wrote a few years back when I was unemployed between jobs and high on leetcode and heroku and react and create react app.

Doubt it would ever run on anything but that stack without a massive refractor.

I still think about that salty engineer sometimes.

Called me a butcher and himself a doctor cause my web methodologies are a mudblooded stain on the discipline.

Anyways, I got enough software to go around if anyone needs a copy.

A dash, a splash, and a dram: Cocktails mixed by swirling ice

After spending the weekend writing browser compliant vanilla JavaScript...

I'm feeling extremely overwhelmed and stressed stepping back into typescript et al at work.

I left off Friday scrapping half an afternoon's worth of work trying to share some basic formatting between two components.

Normally, I'd put a class in a CSS file and just add the class on each element. But we're so far past jumping the shark that we can't even see the ocean from here.

@aral at a solid check in point.

this repo is a proof of concept for managing a "/public" folder either via git, but especially via an in browser code editor with a major shout out to Code Mirror 6 (codemirror.net/6/docs/).

git.sr.ht/~tychi/code-mirror-s

with my tag library, it lets complex interfaces to be composed an a more... decentralized heirarchy. the public/todo-list/features folder are functionally my thoughts on that.

just depends on deno to run the service.

Just a PSA that any time an article claims "hackers" did something...

Just swap that out with "bored teenagers"

"Hackers" is just shorter than: a teenager so bored against security so low they didn't even realize they were committing a crime.

yessss

okay, my research for online code editor is complete.

this article is flawless in going from zero to demo in an otherwise convoluted landscape.

how it started: creating a photo id verification product so much better than jumio that stripe copied it.

how it's going: manhandling an uber driver's phone after a failed license scan to manually enter in my pii to accept an alcohol delivery.

Developer advocate? Fuck.

No.

I'm a user advocate.

Call me Tron or don't call me ever.

when i think about housing. and single family zoning. and voting against affordable housing.

i try and visualize it.

and the image that always comes to mind is like, a 58 year old dude telling an 8 year old child to "git gud"

The modern stack is

Human
Computer
Data Lake (pronounced data leak)

Not fully by choice but relationships are about compromise and that leads me to:

Ephemeral's choices:

A community that offers a safe space for people to share their personal lives online (again). Social media doesn't have to be about only showing the best of you, all the time -- finding support and community for your struggles, small and big, is a cause worth pursuing.
