ramping up to Odd Loop is tiring, but I'll hang out with pals and try not to bomb my talk and it will probably turn out fun

my worst job was straight out of high school, i was working at a gift shop. this gift shop was part of a "historic landmark" that was just a tourist trap for no-coast bumpkins; it sold books about colonial philly and a bunch of plastic crap. folks would walk around our shop, not buying anything, just lustily pawing at anything with a flag on it. it was so dirty.

I made a thing, it's a code-generated number station podcast:

It has two sources of data: 1) my mysterious corpus 2) you can submit your own message.

Messages are encrypted and read aloud. There's also some music and other random variety. It's weird, but I like it. It's not quite as automated and/or 100% computer-generated as I would like, and I'll probably fiddle with it forever, but here it is!

I'm happy to announce that my barebones ActivityPub server, implemented in Node.js/Express, is now open source! I intend for it to be a reference implementation for developers who are adding ActivityPub to their own services, but also it is an application server that you can build on if you want.

In other words, t's a few hundred lines of code that lets you create Mastodon-compatible accounts that can accept follow requests and post stuff to their followers.

I think that building is full of monks, so it's possibly a kind of praying?? but six days? nonstop??

a building on my block is playing music on loop. for six days straight. 24/7
