The best thing I’ve learned this week is that when squirrels fall/jump - they land like superheroes!

The first #ActivityPubInClojure went well I think. We talked JSON-LD, RDF, and looked at how to convert back and forth to idiomatic Clojure data.

Hoping to stream again around the same time on Sunday.

Because I was a bit annoyed while I tried to bend some seqs to my will I added Clerk to my Biff project. How nice! Minimal fuss and a namespace to try stuff out and look at lovely data shapes.

In Duck Hunt the NES Zapper worked by blacking out screen & drawing white blocks around targets when you fire, for a couple frames. The diode in the Zapper detects the change in light intensity and tells the computer if it’s pointed at a lit target. #gamedev #retrogaming

Precedents like the German government running a Mastodon server are important beyond the obvious reasons. They reinforce the urgency of serious public funding for open code.

If we treated open code as part of the essential infrastructure of the 21st century and funded it at billions of USD/EUR as opposed to tiny grants here and there, the "fediverse" model of interconnected, self-governing communities would become the norm, not the exception.
