I'm not seeing any of the content-warning meta in my feed but it's like... you know when you're having a conversation with someone and you bring up a topic and a few words in you can see that they're annoyed or uncomfortable or just uninterested so you switch to talking about something else? CWs are a way of doing that same thing in an asynchronous medium (like mastodon) where you change your speech in real time in response to how people are reacting—you have to anticipate that reaction instead
#Introductions I'm Lucy! I draw comics about maritime history (I'm a tall ship sailor), feelings (my new book is about Imposter Syndrome), and other good stuff (https://lucybellwood.com/comics). I attended XO for the first time in 2015 and spoke in 2016 about definitions of success and financial transparency. I share/teach/write a lot about crowdfunding, travel, and building a sustainable independent practice. I am exceedingly friendly.
okay I just pushed an update and uploaded a new archive with (more) correct character encoding—enjoy https://github.com/aparrish/gutenberg-dammit
Greetings! :) I joined Mastodon more than a year ago, but never really used any social media much, and finding things to post seems... troublesome.
However, I really like the idea behind Mastodon and it seems like a great place to meet like-minded people.
So I thought I'd do a little #introductions. I study mechatronics, am very interested in tech and privacy matters and have maaany projects I'd like to tackle, but instead just fall back to self-loathing and video games. I also like birds.
