For various reasons, I've moved servers, and due to timing, am welcoming a number of new followers. This seems like an excellent time for a new post.

Hello! I'm Kattni (she/her).

I am a maker, photographer, programmer, mentor, community builder and maintainer, intermittent chef, one-time gardener, and collector of excellent bags. I am and from many angles. I am tolerated by a cat who continues to let me live with her.

I am a content creator, creating approachable information, project builds, and tutorials. I am passionate about sharing what I learn and know with others who are interested, and this is my opportunity to do that full-time. Everything I find interesting is a potential topic, which means anything from history, to community, to tech, to programming, to photography, to biology, to office organisation, and onward. You can find me on Patreon and GitHub Sponsors. I am currently sharing all of my content on my blog, I am working to build a community around my content, so please consider joining me on my new adventure.

I am Conference Chair for PyOhio 2024. We're back in person for the first time since 2019. This is the first time I've done any kind of volunteering or conference organising of any kind, and it has been an adventure full of a ton of work. I am grateful to my amazing team, all of whom have made this situation possible for me. I will be Chair for 2025 as well, though I am hoping to spend next year spinning up my replacement for 2026.

I've done various speaking engagements, including being a 2019 keynote speaker at PyOhio, even though public speaking terrifies me. My most recent talks were at three summits at PyCon US 2024: the Education Summit, the Community Organisers' Summit, and the Documentation Summit. It was great to share things I was passionate about, but three talks at one event was entirely too much. I don't recommend it.

I left my job in September 2023 to pursue my passions. I spent the previous six years working with the CircuitPython project. I was an open source community leader, technical writer, new contributor coordinator, embedded software developer, CircuitPython library codebase manager, and embedded hardware designer, among other things.

There is definitely more to me than this, but I think this is a solid introduction to my current situation. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you around the Fediverse!

? 🙄 Hésiter puis fermer, et puis (système 1) rouvrir un compte, quand des auteur.ices qui me parlent de subsistance en maisonnées et de mines (Pruvost, Izoard) n'ont par cohérence pas de compte ni de mobile; que d'autres arrosent copieusement tous les réseaux sans doute par sens du "mal nécessaire" pour porter la bonne parole. Quel sens y a t-il à (re)poster des photos et vidéos tous azimuts, même sur un réseau décentralisé et "clean", quand l'extractivisme nous promet l'enfer et que mon vieux téléphone, privé de mise à jour depuis plus de 2 ans, menace de lâcher à tout moment dans un écosystème qui me pousse à le changer.
Que faire ici si on a lu ça?

New server, new !

I'm an engineering professor, the author of HOW INFRASTRUCTURE WORKS, and a connector of things, people and ideas, especially around design, education, systems, materials, and intersections thereof.

To paraphrase Ursula K. LeGuin, I don't fit well into a pigeonhole since my tentacles come out in all directions.

When I'm not at a keyboard, I might be in the boxing ring, on a climbing wall, or in a glassblowing studio.

My Introduction video! ৻( •̀ ᗜ •́ ৻)

ദ്ദി(• ˕ •マ.ᐟ Check out my Beacons link!

(˵ ¬ᴗ¬˵) I post "spicy" content on certain websites on that link

If you want casual DM's talk to me on the Fediverse (Mastodon).

I'm political, hating cars, loving walkable city design, I love FOSS (Free open source software), and I'm into learning.

Besides politics, I get into diet, exercise, textiles (what I wear and sleep in), femininity, and more!

Hopefully we get along :3

Consider the bicycle… or if not, consider the final chapter of "Software Design by Example in Python" My thanks again to everyone who made this book possible (; it's been a pleasure writing for you.

c2silva, to random Portuguese

Boa noite a todos e todas e todes! Não tão novo no saite do elefante (já superei o choque inicial), mas novo aqui na Ursal.

Me chamo Cassiano, sou um usuário de internet médio (ou medíocre, como preferir), e entusiasta por alguns assuntos aleatórios.

Tava indo tudo bem até que eu fui migrar de outra instância para cá, consegui trazer os seguidores, mas não tô conseguindo recuperar os perfis que eu seguia lá. Inclusive se alguém puder me ajudar já agradeço.

krib, to photography

(2 of 4) I've been taking pictures since age 12, but don't kid myself that this is serious work. I just like framing images and would miss it badly if I stopped. Over the next few weeks, I'll post some old and new ones.

Metro-North station in Poughkeepsie, NY. October, 2011. Old! We were there for the Walkway over the Hudson, but the view only changed angles during the very long bridge walk.

krib, to animals

(1 of 4) Er… hi! An intro in four parts, using to collect them.

I'm GenX and have never used social media for personal interests. Even a decade ago, Instant Graham felt sleazy—and Twitter toxic and shrill. 2024 Flickr is more of a cultural archive, so I'm mainly here to share photos.

I can only start with Sophie. Just over a year old, still full of beans, looking to go hard at any opportunity. Here's a brief moment at rest :)

arisummerland, to GenX avatar

New-to-me instance, so I suppose I should do an again -- and pin it.

Late-realized and more or less lifelong Kansan living once more in the blue bubble of . In one year I will have lived in my current house as long as I lived anywhere else in my entire life. That is kind of scary to me.

I have no idea what I said as an intro when I joined Mastodon in late 2022. I had just gotten slapped by the book of face because I said I wanted to drive to Texas to punch a Nazi. That'll tell you a lot about who I actually am.

I'm still because masking is punk as fuck, as is caring about other people in your community -- not just the shiny loud ones who are always talking and saying everything is fine.

It's not.

I believe it's going to be some version of OK, but it's going to be really different, and it might be pretty difficult, and a lot of people are going to be really uncomfortable -- but you probably already know that.

I love reading, learning, sleeping, foraging, unlearning, listening, learning to repair things, and being quiet for long stretches. I grow as much food and medicine as I can on my own small property. I try to be a good steward and give back to the land and the animals.

I am a chicken tender, and they are the joy of my existence. Those goofy birds helped me get through some really rough years recently. When you've got creatures that you have to get up and tend to many times a day, there's a reason to keep your feet on the ground on this earth for a while.

I have two dogs, three cats, and never enough time to do all the learning and reading or even work that I want to do.

I've been in my profession of bodywork for over 30 years and still love it. I'm only able to work part time due to my AuDHD and chronic physical conditions, so my work fits my needs very well.

I'm redheaded, left-handed, short, fat, and existentially angry most of the time, but I am also one of those people that will usually shut up after complaining and try to find a solution.

I'm a , meditation teacher, certified teacher, certified listener , am becoming a certified , and I like to question everything, especially authority. I have too many and only two hands, and never enough time for all the poems that want to be scribbled down or typed out.

I'm a big fan of classic sci-fi, new sci-fi, speculative fiction, memoirs, and packed with useful information. I'm on the hunt for an entire set of encyclopedia, as I'm increasing my useful paper book collection. My TV choices tend toward , British comedy, and documentaries about weird cults/religions.

I'm very literal, and my sense of humor is very dry. I cut my teeth on 1970s , to give you and idea of what I mean.

I am a weird combination of mostly vegan/vegetarian, but I do eat some chicken -- and the eggs my hens produce. So figure that one out if you can. (I can't!)

I love to cuss but I am very, very bad at it.

Some things I love about Mastodon: My Au friends here, all your cat and dog and rat and plant posts, watching monster movies on Sunday nights, my Novid and Covid-cautious friends, my soccer friends, and the character limit on this new-to-me instance. Woot!

Any questions? Thanks for reading.

teodozjusz, to random Polish

[English text below]

Stwierdziłem, że warto by było w końcu w końcu się przedstawić 😅 Nazywam się Adam, w Internecie najczęściej posługuję pseudonimem Teodozjusz, tutaj opcjonalnie skracanym do Teo. Pracuję jako programista integracji, czyli zasadniczo piszę programy, które umożliwiają współdziałanie innych programów, które niekoniecznie są do tego stworzone. Odkąd poszedłem do pracy w IT, to szukam sobie hobby, obecnie najczęściej grzebię w komputerach lub czytam książki. Co mi strzeli do głowy w przyszłości, czas pokaże...

I think it's high time to introduce myself. I'm Adam and I work as integration developer, which is basically gluing various services to work together. When I started working in IT I also started looking for new hobby. Currently I spend most of my free time tinkering with computers or reading books.

Ich werde öfter gefragt was für Hobbys ich habe.

Ich habe kein klassisches Hobbys und erst recht keines die man animmt das sie Blinde hätten wie Hörbücher hören zum Beispiel.

Ich habe Interessen die Vielseitig sind. Ich interessiere mich z.b. für alte Filme und Serien, für Musik, für Geschichte, für Psychologie und Verhaltenswissenschaft, Natur, Tiere, Menschheitsgeschichte und vieles mehr. Handwerke auch gerne was ich noch so kann. Schreibe gerne Gedichte

Was die Interessen angeht so

good to be in a place just for illustrators for a change. Thanks for setting this up @darrendilieto @hireillo I am very happy to be here. Seems a little different to what I am used to but yhat said the X and the Insta is changing at such a rapid pace that I feel so behind in how to use it already… maybe I’m getting older. Either way it’s good to be here with you all. Here’s a photo of my studio.

Hello, il est de mise de faire une présentation par ici, je refais donc la mienne sur cette nouvelle instance. ​:blobcat_hidding:​

Je débarque depuis peu sur le Fediverse. 👋
J'aime les animes, les jeux-vidéo et la sf.

Je viens de terminer mes études en direction artistique et je suis désormais Game/Narrative Designer dans une ville non bretonne du nom de Nantes.

J'aime bien expérimenter et tenter des choses, vous aurez occasionnellement droit à du gribouillage très moche. ​:blobcat_bounce:​

Je serais sans doute plus actif avec @isekai_online dont je m'occupe de la programmation antenne. 📡

Why hello (again), Mastodon!

Greetings! I'm Evo, no longer on my own single-instance server, which seemed like a good idea but, franky... I can't be bothered. That, and I'm already paying to run Podvibes, so...

Here's my latest which tells you want to expect from following me here on the Fediverse, in a handy🧵:

evoterra, avatar

#intro, part 2:

#AudioFiction - I exclusively listen to fiction podcasts, so you'll hear me shouting about those I love.

#Podcasting - Even though I retired from podcast punditry in 2022, I still have thoughts on we podcasters can make podcasting better. While I try to channel them towards #FictionPodcast creators, there's some over spill.

[#introduction continues 👇]

Salix, to random

Hello I'm Salix and am making a new account on this same instance. I am from the valley in Virginia.
I am into all sorts of art, books, writing, music, TTRPGs, nature, and photography. I play the trumpet and am learning guitar, and I have a strong distaste for how much we rely on cars, and cars in general.
I'll probably post art, ideas and stuff on TTRPGs, photos, and whatever else I feel like at the time.
