I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

looking to apply to grants to write about kawaii old web aesthetics (im only half-joking)

quick example of equipping items on the player model *-* still needs a bit of tweaking but viola~!!

was gonna call it a night at the last post (i swear):x menu is now toggable, items (temporarily) not stackable but now they can be spawned in scene when removed from inventory. also paused camera rotation while menu's open to prevent motion sickness lmao ^-^~

a few hours later.. >_> there is now a separate equipment inventory w/ equippable items. items are also swappable & some non-stackable & u can delete items. !!!

welp, its finished.

i will set up the game jam sometime today or tomorrow!
if u have questions about using it, you know how to contact me :)

okay one last vent: My boss would complain to me that her diamond ring wasnt as shiny as another dealer’s diamond ring, meanwhile constantly dangling my shit health insurance in the air (“why are we paying so much for this?”), I couldn’t afford to see a dentist to fix my rotting teeth, and working at a place that sold pieces of paper for half a million dollars

Not to get into it but everything from wage theft, being involved in sexual harassment & my boss wanting to brush it under the rug to having personal insults thrown at me about my family and SOO much more

i just felt the need to share my not anonymous anymore response to the labor survey because its been months and i dont think im fully ~recovered~ from the years of bullshit that was my last job. Unless youre already wealthy, art workers are incredibly exploited and have no protection because the art world is so small and incredibly unregulated. How many times ive been told “i used to mop the floors too” by bosses as justification for unjust & illegal working conditions

Re: labor exploitation (content warning for unaliving/drug abuse) 

I was at that job for so long because I started to believe my worth was so little and wouldn’t find another job with my skills, plus the pressure of having a job vs. the stigma of being unemployed.

Re: labor exploitation (content warning for unaliving/drug abuse) 

I was working a full time job, plus a part time job, PLUS freelance and I still couldn’t afford rent in my city. The cherry on top: after I put in my two weeks my job struggled to find a replacement because the pay was so low - they ended up hiring the intern at the time and paid her 5K more than what I was making. (I started at 30K, and after 3 years was at 35K, then my replacement was making 40K).

Re: labor exploitation (content warning for unaliving/drug abuse) 

I quit my very toxic job earlier this year and wish I’d only quit much sooner - the very low pay and mental toll it had on me made me incredibly burnt out and as a result I started to have suicidal ideation, constant panic attacks, a drinking/drug problem (I would show up to work high or incredibly hungover), it negatively impacted my personal life and relationships, and I started therapy because of it.

I just put together a survey about labor and jobs! If you're working or were previously working, I humbly ask for your participation!

FINALLY!! IT IS DONE! I finished the Fuwa Cakes Cans, I made a blog post about my process, if you guys wanna check it (got some typos tho' but I think its an interesting read):
