If you are new to Mastodon, or, like me, not so totally new anymore but still puzzling how this all works, read Noëlle Anthony's awesome Guide to Mastodon: github.com/joyeusenoelle/Guide

Tools are only as good as their documentation, user guides and communities. Thank you @noelle , you made Mastodon an even better tool for me (and I suppose a lot of other people too) now.

Ok, finally, some . Hello everyone.

I'm a scattered identity somewhere between science & technology studies, computer science and education. Also sometimes self-referred to as a free floating trans*disciplinary post-technoscientist.

My interests are tagged in the profile. Currently I spend most of my time with systems & network administration, a bit of workshopping and teaching, organizing feminist tech meetups and events, and trying to finish my ITsec master programme.

Hey, did anyone see this Hackers & Designers Summer Academy which started today and is running for a week? -> hackersanddesigners.nl/s/Summe

I know, I know, I am a bit late to the game. Actually I just forgot that I have a social media account and actually something worthwhile to spread the word about 🤓 😊

I'm particularly interested in the Feminist Hardware talk by Stefanie Wuschitz from Mz* Baltazar's lab tomorrow at 18:00 live on stream: mzbaltazarslaboratory.org/even

That gender you got at birth? That's just a tutorial gender. You're only supposed to use it to get the hang on this world's gender system and then ditch it for a stronger one, not use it your entire life, noob

Have you heard of the Royal game of Ur?

It's a 4000 year old game found in a royal gravesite in the ancient city of Ur. What's truly amazing about it is that we've also found a clay tablet with the rules for it! The oldest rule book in the world!

I had not heard of it, until I found this beautiful Free and open source online digital version of it! It looks great, and it's fun too! And you can play two player locally

Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Hey y'all.

I'm going to write an article for Mastodon/Fediverse beginners. It'll be in English and I'll translate it to German too + anyone can translate it into any language or adapt it (#CCSA).

Please send me links to articles, websites, threads & accounts with good info for newbees. Also let me know if you have any good tips for them.

Please #boost.

Ok. I guess there is not much left to say about 2020. Except maybe this: freck.it/2020

In the push to support trans kids (something that’s always needed, btw), there is often an overflowing amount of narratives of trans adults testifying that “they always knew.”

I just want to remind all the people questioning their gender that some people always knew, but some of us didn’t. *I* didn’t. And it’s ok to be only figuring it out when you are older.

I was 35 years and 221 days old when I finally figured it out. Others have been older.

It’s never too late to make the connection.

Für die feministisch umtriebigen Nerd*innen (FNTI) in Wien gibts diese Woche wieder was zu tun:

Morgen abend: Feminist Python Meetup mit Workshop zu MicroPython: feminist-python.diebin.at/inde

Freitag abend: Feminist Linux Meetup mit ner Intro zu Backup-Lösungen unter Linux: feminist-linux.diebin.at/2019/

Und noch ein weiterer Anteaser-Auszug (2/2):
"Deshalb ist eine Verbindung von Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien mit human- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Fächern nicht nur ideal, um eine breitere Population an potenziellen Coderinnen und Codern zu gewinnen, vielmehr geht es im Sinne partizipativer Ansätze darum, Technologien gemeinsam mit Userinnen und Usern und deren konkreten Bedürfnissen zu entwickeln."

Und ein Auszug zum anteasern (1/2):
"Und deshalb nutzt es auch nichts, wenn wir alle Jahre wieder am Internationalen Frauentag Mädchen und Frauen "ermutigen", Programmieren zu lernen und in gut bezahlte Informatikjobs zu gehen, wenn die Rahmenbedingungen dort noch nicht wirklich reif sind für alternative Ideen und vielfältige Lebensentwürfe abseits klassischer Stereotype."

Every time I see the Hacker Ethic praised without critically challenging its shortcomings, I have to think of "Programming is Forgetting: Toward a New Hacker Ethic" by Allison Parrish and wish it was more popular. You can read the transcript here opentranscripts.org/transcript

Today the starts, with lots of interesting talks and workshops: pydays.at/schedule

One session will be dedicated to presenting and networking different initiatives that foster diversity in tech: pydays.at/womenintech

Looking forward to seeing lots of folks there.

The whole event is free, so you can join quite sontaneously.
