Hi, I'm the admin here at stream.void.garden

I'm trying to build a small, friendly community for people who make things and want a chill place to hang out

I'm modelling this community based on advice from runyourown.social

I'm someone who makes mostly digital things, generative art, interactive media, and I'm also learning about electronics and modular synthesisers

Yes, I realise the irony of my two pinned posts being "Hi I'm an instance admin" and "I oopsied an entire instance because I'm a doofus"

lol if i spent that much time loading objs and tweaking the display for it all to just be a ui decoration, that'd be the funniest thing ever

F-Droid, spinster & gab adjacent 

I think I'm happy with this design
I realise it's a little uninspired, but I feel like it reads well, and that delta shape with an over-sized rear engine it like cruise control for cool spaceship

This afternoon I'm grooving to Tasha's set for Keep Hush

A nice jungle set with some modernised old-school vibes
Kind of feels like what vapourwave would be like if that movement had latched onto early UK drum&bass instead of muzak

Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so

Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.

for real tho, if you ever need any content warnings for a movie, check out http://doesthedogdie.com

it doesn't just warn for animal death anymore. a ways back it started adding more and more content warnings.

it's gotten to warning for specific kinds of deaths, specific kinds of trauma and abuse, hatecrimes, specific mutilations, addictions, etc.

it's really really helpful for people with any kinds of triggers for stuff like that.

basically, don't use the fediverse for anything you wouldn't want coming up in a court of law, because it's not secure for that. It's just not a tool that's built for secure political organizing. There's ongoing discussion about potentially making it secure, but that doesn't have an easy solution for a bunch of technical reasons, so for now it's just not. Use Signal or another encrypted, secure chat app. Don't harbor any illusions that you can discuss anything seditious on here safely.

but at the same time, fuck cops, we should 100% be banning them from being on the fediverse, not because it will make our information more secure, but because fuck them, we don't want them around here. It's not a matter of infosec, but a matter of not wanting to associate with the bastards. Come back with a warrant or not at all, asshole.

don't screencap people's accounts without asking them (unless you are taking shots of abuse or some shit) why do I have to even say this for fuck's sake
