One thing I really love about being on the fedi is that it's showing in realtime that the main problem with fighting and minimizing the harm violent and hateful bigots commit in online spaces is often enabled by people who choose to do nothing.
Dr. MLK Jr. famously said the biggest impediment to progress is the white moderate.
That thought is crystallized if one observes the sheer amount of nonchalant cowardice in FOSS that protects bigots under the guise of 'fairness'.
death, sui, etika
Etika was found dead today. He went missing on Wednesday. Instead of helping a few months ago when he had a public meltdown, the cops broke in his door, pushed him to the ground, and then released him from a psych ward n about a day. There were plenty of opportunities to get a sick man the help he needed. His fans made fun of him and memed on him. The police treated him just like theyd treat someone they were pursuing as a criminal. He was pushed away. Everyone failed him.
Did I already share this?

(website seems to be own at the moment?)
A JSON-based format for open-source music. Something like MIDI files, but human-readable (so good for generating data tooo), easily editable online, and they contain links to the sounds (think soundfonts) they use.

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
