I guess I forgot my #introduction 😅
I'm Esther (she/her), came over from the bird site yesterday for obvious reasons after side-eyeing Mastodon for years. I'll remain in both places for now but mostly not cross-posting.
I post a lot about queer and trans stuff, tech (a career that I'm just leaving now), my music and art. Also probably more psychology in the future.
There's more stuff here: https://www.selfawaresoup.com
One more from that shoot. Love how the fill light tints the shadows blue

People still seriously recommend Idiocracy … a deeply cynical and ignorant film dealing in eugenics ideas (you know, literal Nazi shit) and attributing right wing politics to "stupidity", thereby treating it as a far lesser threat than it actually is.
Sarah Z has a very good analysis of everything wrong with it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o52zD-aGqjA
Hot shower take: the vast majority of big AND actually useful web frontend improvements over the past 10 years have been made in CSS, while JS has eaten orders of magnitude more in resources and collective brain space.
Not to mention that the people more closely working with CSS, often coming more from a design background, have been paid much worse than JS focused developers.
Ok, if I look very closely I can see a difference between 1080 and 4K but I don't think it's worth the extra effort, especially since audio is so much more important.
4K is great as raw material to have editing flexibility but as a delivery format I don't think I need it. https://chaos.social/@selfawaresoup/108254088910897322
