VR live music performances are becoming a thing in passionate niche communities and the current technical solutions for them are struggling to even contain it. https://twitter.com/2ToneDisco/status/1350746520979611649?s=19 So interesting this comes at the same time that Wave is pivoting away from them https://twitter.com/TheWaveXR/status/1350185163603505152?s=19

I've recreated the old Twitter links_for_twit feed here at @twitnews. Stories I bookmark for our shows will be autoposted with my comments here. Follow if you want a tech news feed (~10 posts a day).
@chidgey @leo I feel like since my instance already has users (though almost all are inactive) I should maintain the instance as-is for those already here. But yeah if I could go back in time I'd probably do single-user. Resource-wise the db is ~400mb at this point and my digital ocean VPS is having memory issues even with this user count almost entirely inactive
Past the spam issue I got nervous about a possible influx of shady characters and the prospect of moderating questionable material.
@leo masto.host did a post recently about what they're trying https://masto.host/testing-custom-code-to-fight-spam-registration-on-mastodon/

TIL older school Chinese food restaurants in Korea deliver food with actual plastic plates meant to be returned. They also hire their own staff to do the delivery and retrieval. After eating you set the plates outside your door in a bag and they come pick it up. This was already normal way before most other delivery food got popular, so it's ingrained to the point where modern delivery apps (like Baedal Minjok) accommodate it and let restaurants elect to use their own staff and do this
Nakata deep cut of the day:
Capsule - Keep Hope Alive
Serious bass... one of the two Nakata songs responsible for actually blowing speakers out in my old car 🤭

And another doing rock https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLlebZLCaw8uPRFyOF4TwFA/videos
Sometimes there's a truly novel idea in the cryptocurrency space that reminds you... for all the BS and hype and vaporware and carbon emissions there could be something that actually gets adopted and is worthwhile and makes cool meaningful positive change. I never feel like *this is it* but instead like a hint that someday something cool could be coming after all https://blog.sia.tech/introducing-piece-dapp-with-multiple-awards-from-hack-the-rainbow-f9997b5786a5
Been enjoying the McCartney II music video drops ahead of the McCartney III release https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5nzLQ63c9E
If you still have a linkedin and think it's worth keeping, it's one of the more worthwhile privacy toggle gauntlets to go through https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/sign-in-and-security very aggressively permissive defaults and there's a lot you can lock down if you take the time
I love technology and music. Mostly splitting my time between Minnesota and Seoul at the moment.
I also run this instance https://tinyfed.com
A general purpose Mastodon instance for myself, friends, family, and whoever happened to join early. Now requires approval to join
