What started out as a pride edition of our @datenobservatorium stickers escalated a bit to a pride flag svg generator:
pride-gen.datenobservatorium.d

- as many colored stripes as you want
- stripes can have different sizes
- curve stripes with svg paths
- mask and transform the whole thing
- your config is reflected in the url
- dynamic favicons, because why not
- and of course you can download the svg

Send me more presets! github.com/rashfael/pride-gen/

Here's how the difference looks like. I now threw more absolute values at it and it's now much better, but there are still some tiny pixels off that you cannot get to with css, I only hope I can unsee that.

Das @datenobservatorium hat in den galaktischen Weiten des Universums Pride-Planten entdeckt.

Unser Head of Design @rash hat die Eindrücke aus dem Observatorium mal eben für euch nachgebaut.

So apparently my local Roboto font and the Roboto webfont render differently and cause some input elements to have different heights and how did nobody ever notice this and oh god it is all off since forever and people use that!

Today, @SequentialChaos@twitter.com and I made another animation! This one is based on an optical illusion called "contrast asynchrony":

Ich möchte gerne noch ein paar nette Leute von Mastodon/chaos.social hier auf der treffen und habe von anderen gehört, dass sie da auch gerne dabei wären. Deshalb:

kleines inoffizielles Mastodon-Meetup draußen auf der Wiese so um 17:00?

bullying is endemic because ultimately, we live in a system set up by and run by bullies

the strategies schools teach to deal with bullies are so ineffective because if they taught actual, functional ways to stand up for oneself and stop bullies in their tracks, the system would no longer be able to perpetuate itself

i made a post with my thoughts about the whole berries.space archival thing here: bune.city/2019/05/archive-team

"Just because something’s publicly available doesn’t mean people want it harvested and stored forever by a dedicated group of data archivists. Posting your phone number on a billboard isn’t consenting to having your phone number posted online by an archival team. Neither is protesting in public, or having a conversation in public, or going skinny-dipping in public, or walking past a CCTV camera in public. Being in public does not mean you automatically consent to having your activities archived."

chaos.social - because anarchy is much more fun with friends.
chaos.social is a small Mastodon instance for and by the Chaos community surrounding the Chaos Computer Club. We provide a small community space - Be excellent to each other, and have a look at what that means around here.
