Chain Story Rules
1. Originator starts story with a CW title and an opening premise as a NEW toot (not a reply) with hashtag #chainstory
2. People add 1 toot-length bit at a time. Improv norms apply: rule of agreement.
3. Continue longest chain
4. Two toots by same person must have at least 2 toots by others in between.
5. Story ends in 20 toots or 48 hours, whichever comes first. Start look for ways to land the story gracefully near then.
6. Story is CC-BY-SA 3.0
😈AUTHORITAH ANNOUNCEMENT 😈 Show more
I'd like to... encourage... a norm of non-lurking here, so we will be imposing authoritah in the future and kicking out people who haven't tooted at all and have no meaningful details in their profile... (a non-default avatar image, maybe a link, maybe a couple of interest hashtags...)
You don't have to be realnym, or reveal your true self here, but you do have to have a non-elephant-in-the-room persona here *some* self, even if entirely fictional :)

[ by Charles Cameron -- have you time to spare for a little beauty? ] . Prof Emily Steiner of the University of Pennsylvania posted this image, which she described as of the "Stunning mosaics in the apse of S. Maria in Trastevere, attributed to Pietro Cavallini (c.1240-1330)": Dr Steiner attributed the photo to "the […]
Hi. I’m not much for introductions, but you can read my feed on Twitter @meadbadger for the real scoop.
I’m a lawyer. Roman Catholic. Father of three (so far; cf, Roman Catholic). I love rockets and Dungeons & Dragons and decentralized forms of technology. I’m a believer in cryptocurrency but don’t own much. I work in-house at an investment bank; you’d recognize the name. I’d like to build a cathedral on Ceres one day.

Under the sign of "Neural ink refills", there was nothing but a void space.
I couldn't quite make out the depth of this space, though it was about 6 feet wide apart defined by the two adjacent torn down factories.
Since I had the urge to refill something in neurally way all today, and the drinks wasn't quite doing it. I decided to seek that refill.
Walking while hearing my own footsteps before they land.

Officially employed as a high school teacher, unofficially internet-based self-experimenter, tinkerer, avid reader, rationality dabbler, monotheistic practitioner.
Been following ribbonfarm since ... just after The GervIs Principle I think, though only lurking. I used to Telegram my more socially awkward readings in a tiny group, guess I found another outlet.
Hello Refactor Camp Mastodon!
I do IT & security for a US non-profit, but before that I worked as what could be best described as a "data hygienist", and before that I tried my hand at being a photographer, and before that I studied operations research. To be honest, I haven't really figured out what I "do" yet. 🙂
I've been following Ribbonfarm since I don't remember when, and wanted to try out this instance to get my head around Mastodon with an interesting crowd of folks.
What's the best EPUB to PDF renderer out there? Have been using Calibre, but the occasional formatting bugs are annoying.
Toolchain idea: the fediverse is so naturally diverse, it’s a pity not to exploit the potential for large scale experimentation. Release manager rigging for instances to selectively try experimental “labs” features that haven’t been (and may never be) added to core. Like gmail labs.
Main project can be conservative in adding features while being liberal in what can be released as opt-in labs features.
I think our instance, being small and with many programmers would likely ride the dev edge
What’s the case for having accounts on multiple mastodon instances?
Either I’m getting an unusual sample or the fediverse is 40% precious snowflakes. Twitter is only 5%. Facebook is around 15%
Rule of agreement in improv is hard once people have introduced around 7±2 artifacts/ideas into the story.
Greetings fellow ribbonfarm regulars. Looking forward to learning with you all...

I have to think about it for a moment.
"Yes," I say, For a while the woman says nothing, her eyes focused on her drink. I have time to look at her more closely. She looks familiar, but I don't recognize her.
I pick up my lager and take a long sip, turning back to the woman. She's out of her chair, walking toward the entrance. I turn back to the football game I had been watching. My team was still behind.
"Seriously, get me off this rock," I say to myself.
Nobody is continuing my story 😔

I’m at a bar, drinking an Old Fashioned, getting madder and madder at the news playing on TV.
Finally I mutter, “I don’t want to live on this planet anymore!”
Strange-looking old woman next to me looks up. Can’t quite put my finger on what’s strange about her.
“Do you mean that?” she asks. I can tell it is a serious question.
