Hi, I have avoided for the longest time. Mainly because I dislike having to sum myself up in a bio. I learnt in the other place that if you do so, it will just be used against you so I left it blank to infuriate those who would.

But this is a nicer place.

I'm a father of 1x lovely 4 year old with ADHD and autism who never stops. Husband of @Tarale who is trying to get diagnosed and help for autism, and me who doesn't see the point at my age of bothering and probably is neurodivergent... but I ain't gonna spend anymore time on it.

I enjoy spirited debate and through the years am both at once someone who can negotiate and probably doesn't know when to quit.

I care deeply about fairness, transparency and privacy - My latest project is twitter.com/OpenWelfare - coordinating freedom of information requests for the greater good.

read more from @asherwolf here about it:

I plan on integrating mastodon into it :)

I also have many other projects, probably too many of them.

I dabble with music, love VR gaming, old things, listening to vinyl, and want to see flourish because I believe it is the future of the "town square" - but it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

Twitter is just software. Written by a company hostile to their own users, who could ban nazi's in a snap, but don't. I'm here because most are. Let's change - On the Internet, you can be in two places at once. The least that could happen is Twitter improves.

What should we name our new megafauna mascot friend?

So far..... Dippy, Doug/Dougie, Skwodge.

@poddi @shlee doesn't matter, crop fixes it perfectly. Also found out that wombat skeletons also have pretty damn big front teeth

@poddi @shlee done - final as far as i can tell. yes, the toe numbers don't match but i don't care because clearly @poddi didn't :)

@poddi @shlee here it is in what i think is the correct cropped format for the corner:

@poddi @shlee this features @Tarale's plane that i traced from the cover art as well because @poddi didn't draw one!

Good morning Fediverse!
I finally got around to finishing tracing of mk2 of @poddi's mascot this morning.

I like that this integrates the cuteness of a wombat with the nomenclature defining feature of a diprotodon

Ping @shlee :)

“Big City Greens” is one of the most wholesome kids series on Disney plus and I highly reccomend it. Something both kids and parents can enjoy.

To all the crypto folks who used to get drinks with me and brag about how progressive you were, but right now are remaining silent as to not harm your web3/NFT sales funnel... I see you.

@bananamangodog @Posty good to meet you, ended up leaving ED after glandular fever and ongoing fatigue, turns out I was burnt out and in desperate need of a change. Look forward to hearing more from you too.

@Posty I love the weird looking gigantic marsupial. IMO if you’re looking for ‘cute’ you don’t appreciate what marsupials have to offer

This poll is divided more than I thought. Since this was commissioned @poddi has done a new, cuter version that looks much more like a wombat, head on over to see it - I still need to trace it!

So, it's been a day since we have a new mascot. we've received some feedback on it of mixed opinions - some love it, some not so much.

The words "cave beaver" was used once 😆. It's new so let's see how we feel about it for a week

I can't post an image in polls:
