Still loving the J-music ensemble's perfume covers. Nakata's jazz influence comes out so strong with that instrumentation and the vocal parts are a perfect fit for a horn section. As stellar as they are, it makes me want even more fleshed out ones with more of the crazy harmonies represented
Well I have literally zero idea what could get people not currently on the fediverse to join tinyfed.com to check it out, but time to start having fun throwing things at the wall in my free time and seeing what sticks
Step one feels like it might be to start posting fediverse-related content *outside* of the fediverse, so I made socials for Tinyfed where I can do that
Also a perfect example of how google going all in on RCS when it lacks end-to-end encryption is so unforgivable
The FCC blocking China Mobile from operating in the USA is huge https://www.axios.com/fcc-blocks-china-mobile-national-security-concerns-7eb85e53-4a71-47d4-8759-5eb8dd5979c9.html
Things are getting shaky...
A baker's dozen of y'all signed up and I love ya for it. Thanks for helping me get the ball rolling with tinyfed.com
It's crystal clear that more needs to be done to encourage new mastodon users to find people to follow and stick around, but regardless people are at least interested enough to register which is so cool. A fine start if you ask me!
The launch explainer video is live on my old social media profiles. Anyone joining, be sure to find 5-10 accounts to follow or else you won't see new posts and it won't be interesting. Maybe find one person you think is interesting and follow some people they follow.
https://communitywiki.org/trunk is a directory of some accounts on the fediverse grouped by interest
Also tomorrow morning I plan to "launch" tinyfed! For now this basically just amounts to me posting the following explainer video on my currently dormant social media profiles and seeing if anyone is interested. LMK if you have any feedback on the video or the concept for the instance
Adam Neely’s new video with sax player/bandleader Patrick Bartley is such a perfect synopsis of the very `music/composition nerd` place my love for Nakata’s music and Japanese music in general comes from https://youtu.be/gFXcwv9XISc
Happy mayday from Minneapolis! https://hobt.org/mayday/
Just linked my keybase.io to this account... very nifty that it works but I'm unconvinced keybase is the best way to solve the problems it's trying to solve. Social graph construction/identity are extremely unsolved problem in the fediverse. Dunno know how this gets solved in an elegant way without centralization. Tough to compete with a world where your @ on insta is the end-all-be-all for a digital point of contact. How/when could a fediverse account be given verbally to a new acquaintance?
Staying up for the Perfume Coachella livestream was 110% worth it https://twitter.com/rizzle_d/status/1120234054870155266
Tinyfed has been updated to mastodon v2.8.0 🎉 https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/04/mastodon-2.8/
Been loving Eric Mayson's mini song series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0l0lHFyn3xA
I love technology and music. Mostly splitting my time between Minnesota and Seoul at the moment.
I also run this instance https://tinyfed.com
