A friend of mine lives in NZ and saw this poster, I mean teens can be picky but this is probably going a bit far

One of the reasons this server (mastodon.me.uk) is so great is that technology ethicist @CatherineFlick is one of our mods. She's incredibly clever and thoughtful, and we're so lucky to have her on board.

Here's her TEDx talk on bad tech and how to stop it from a few weeks back: https://youtu.be/oYyb5K6wVeE

A few weeks ago I did a TEDx talk, it’s finally been published!

https://youtu.be/oYyb5K6wVeE?si=XMc6ynlBbOgOVAzF

In it I talk about why so much tech is bad for society and what we can do to push back.

Things I came back from #emfcamp with:

  1. Many stickers
  2. A printed mastodon magnet
  3. Some old fairy lights
  4. An awesome badge
  5. COVID-19

Might be worth testing if you were there.

Our local councillor is a Tory and has been posting those signs around that have the Tory candidate on them. Does anyone know where I can get some signs that say “vote tactically, stop the Tories” or something

CatherineFlick,

I don’t want to support any party in particular, I’m cranky with all of them, but I don’t want it to look like we’re all Tory supporters here

If you are the person who abandoned a tent full of crap at EMF: We are going to find you.

You have enraged a group of people who enjoy puzzles and suddenly have a lot of free time.

Run.

I made a Downpour game about building the arcade, you can play it here: https://downpour.games/~liedra/let-s-build-the-emf-arcade?p=zle

@coprolite9000 @v Yeah! He was so lovely. Though at one point whenever I'd go up to him and say "hi" he'd say "what's broken now?" :D

What was the name of the game in the arcade with the lead called Kai on the island visiting their grandad? It was so so good.

They were all good actually, is there a list?

Did you make a downpour game for #emfcamp ? Do you have a bunch of pictures and would like to make a downpour game for #emfcamp? Would you like to play a bunch of games other people made? Go see them all here: https://downpour.games/eventkiosk/emf #emf2024

My post lie-in was spent hacking on (which I bought after enjoying it in EMF's excellent Arcade) and creating a new Bulletin Board to dial into…

(You should definitely play Last Call BBS: https://www.zachtronics.com/last-call-bbs/)

I like immigration. I like not to have serious skills gaps in our services. I like mixing with people who grew up in other countries. I like being enriched by other cultures. I would like the feeling that my country opened its arms to people fleeing terrible situations elsewhere. I don’t understand why other people don’t think like this

CatherineFlick,
@CatherineFlick@mastodon.me.uk avatar

@DrHyde @purplepadma can confirm. The number of times I’ve been told that I’m ok (“one of the good ones”) is honestly surprising

Looking through the hashtags for EMF has been such a delight. This is why we do it. #emfcamp #emf2024

@Riedl that is very impressive!! Sorry you’re ill now though, hope it goes quickly for you.

I had a blast DJ'ing at #emfcamp on Sunday night. Went very well considering it was my first time doing it in person instead of on the internet.

@jtruk caught this absolutely incredible slow motion footage during it, which might be my favourite EMF shot of all time. Charles, Rob, and Dimitri really nailed the effect timings. phenomenal.

CatherineFlick,
@CatherineFlick@mastodon.me.uk avatar

@gsuberland @jtruk that is a truly epic shot

Got confirmation that 3 people completed JTM and all received medals! (sent 3 but wasn't sure anyone’d bother at an event with so much to do) https://bsky.app/profile/liedra.net/post/3ku2zx7t3qk27

@mattround I was pinged on bsky but far prefer here! And yes, turns out the arcade was quite a winner late at night :)

My only regrets from #emfcamp are:

  1. Not realising that when people warned me Null Sector is "loud" that they meant FUCKING LOUD. Loud in a good way, unless you're attempting to sleep at 1AM … I thought our tent was far enough away… no… it was not. Also nobody warned me Stage B would also be... Rather Loud. 😂

So next time we shall know better, and set up camp… on the moon.

  1. Not possessing a time machine so I can go do it all again a few times to catch all the things I missed and didn't do.
CatherineFlick,
@CatherineFlick@mastodon.me.uk avatar

@yvan so glad you had a good time. It was lovely to see you both ❤️
