Do you wish the Fediverse had its own alternative to Twitch?

There's one called @owncast . It already works as a self-hosted alternative, and is currently testing Fediverse support:


The Fediverse support is only on test accounts at the moment, such as @wesley . You can already follow these test accounts from Mastodon etc and you will see posts in your feed when their streams are live.

Fediverse support will hopefully be on the release version of OwnCast soon 🤞

I don't care how much you want the money. How much you say you need it. If you don't want me freeloading, put a paywall; I might not pay, but I don't object to being denied a webpage. I object to ads.

There are no acceptable or ethical ads. Ads are distractions, annoyances, disruptions. They interfere with people's work, fun, mental health.

Hey turns out I forgot one step in the Twitter Outsider dance:

- After reloading the page, you get the banner again. You can then close that one.

Yes, it’s actually even sillier than above. 🤦‍♀️

Just learned about two packages that can help with :

- potools: easy internationalisation of R packages (michaelchirico.github.io/potoo)
- preferably: accessible template for pkgdown (preferably.amirmasoudabdol.nam)

I just signed DORA. If you think the creation, sharing and use of in could be greatly improved, you can sign too:


A lot of the points resonate with what I believe can help make better, but it also introduced me to new principles that make absolute sense, e.g.:

One of my favorite things is seeing Tesla drivers from outside California where weather exists encounter problems the designers didn't account for. Like how rainwater on your trunk door just flows directly into the opening trunk instead of being channelled away like in every other car.
