@m4sk1n yay! @lubuntu and are so proud of your contributions both through Google Code-In and beyond!

@dabnotu yes that's helpful, but beyond the layering, we're any significant effects applied to the material?

@celesteh @celesteh whoa do you have this paper already written? i want to see!

I made a twitter bot that pretends to be a trump supporter, but yells at racists from seemingly within their milieu. I just wrote a short paper explaining why it works the way it does and why I wrote it and what academic research I consulted while designing it. I want to publish this paper in a peer reviewed journal so I can get a job or whatever.

It's not really an art project, it's just a thing I made. I'd call it #hacktivism, but academic journals seem to think that term means politically motivated cybre crime. It /does/ break the twitter TOS in a few ways, but those aren't the law.... yet... 

There's nothing liminal, post-human, or techno utopian, but it does touch on migration and the alt-right and things that, like, matter in real life.

If there are no journals, I'd settle for a conference paper. Normally, I'm a musician, so I'm not sure where to send this....

@balrogboogie i can imagine conversations you must have had:

parents: if you don't succeed, try try again.
you: try and fail?
parents: no! try and die!

Friendly reminder: In terms of value stolen, the two largest forms of theft are wage theft and civil forfeiture. Wage theft alone accounts for more value stolen than all other forms of theft combined. The two most likely people to steal from you are your boss and the cops.

OMG #Krita has the cutest build instructions. These are actually referenced from their official documentation as the canonical way to build it.

Is anyone doing a #federated #OpenSource alternative to Meetup.com?

It's useful for local events, but very expensive for organisers ($15 a month for a basic events page). People pay purely because others use it, an open alternative would be 👍

Meetup's "network effect" might be overcome because it isn't a global network (e.g. someone in London is only going to care about meetups in London).

Also, an open alternative would be perfect fit for #federation, each community having its own instance.
