This is a project of free libre fonts made by womxn.
design-research.be/by-womxn/
From the website:
"Created in 2018, this collection aims at giving visibility to libre fonts drawn by womxn designers, who are often underrepresented in the traditionally conservative field of typography.

These fonts are shared under Free, Libre and Open Source licenses, which allow anyone to use them, modify their design, contribute more glyphs or styles to their non-nuclear families, build upon them and redistribute them further.

They are generously published for free, feeding an ecosystem of sharing and collaborations."

@hearsepileup also, disinformation and harassment campaigns have become more sophisticated, over time. "online life" on the large corporate platforms has become sort of untenable, and that's definitely part of it, to whichever degree.

otoh, there's also systemic problems to contend with, which get utilized in different ways by different groups, left/social justice vs. right in particular

I hadn't realised was such a big thing on mastodon until recently.

I love it! 😻

Let me untick everything at once. And your 'legitimate interest' is illegitimate to me. I don't want you to know anything about me. I don't care what your business model is. I'm less likely to pay you for your service if you're also marketing my data

Just installed the ultimate guitar app and I shit you not must have spent a good 15 minute unticking cookie consent boxes. WTF.

(Most of these thoughts are happening is relation to Lindsay Ellis's video. Some of the shit that had been weaponised against her was clearly collected by people with ulterior motives)

That's not to say cancellations shouldn't happen, or that things don't happen for a good reason. But the sheer frenzy that builds up and receipt distributing... Some of that ain't healthy. And easy to see how it could be egged on in bad faith.

Show thread

Hate to go all conspiracy nutcase, but I can't help but feel that some of the hysteria around cancel culture is actively being whipped up by the right. If words like 'racist' and 'fascist' lose their meaning then it's a lot easier to actually be one.

Just watched Lindsay Ellis's video on the cancelling. Gotta say it makes happier to focus on mastodon. Lifting my talking points from their algoritm in the hopes of trending feels cheap and like playing myself.

The Robert Webb situation is pretty simple really. He voiced his opinion on an issue that doesn't directly affect him. He was interviewed by someone it does. There's nothing abusive about confronting someone about it in a polite manner.

Anyone here done anything with LED matrices before? Been thinking of buying a 32x64 for stage equipment purposes (driven most probably by a raspberry pi)

Damn, I forgot to caption: the photo is of the twitter trending tab. One story reads 'Need a laugh today? here are some tweets that'll do the job'. Lower down an article on 'The Rise and Fall of Canary Wharf' is trending

Show thread

Also, Farage wishing his massive fan 'Hugh Janus' a happy birthday for cash is hilarious

Show thread

Sometimes birdsite isn't completely terrible. Seeing canary wharf struggling to keep london as the cancerous core of the UK made my day! 🤣

By this point I don't think there's a clean return to normal. It's taken so long to get testing out to everyone, sloppy guidance and little education of the public about a way clear path to recovery. People are exhausted and have stopped caring.
