so about time i dropped an at this new home of mine :)

i'm a brazilian artist & writer and i share my cc-licensed art on my website (oliviamaia.net/en). i believe in free art and libre culture and i do my best to live by that. i also do art streams, sometimes, and drawing time-lapse videos.

i'm a non-binary, cat-lover and linux nerd sort of person, and also probably a communist (i try). i toot a lot of nonsense and sometimes i complain about anxiety.

hello :blob_cat_peek:

covid 

i'm putting the covid deaths after the first three months on the death-count of capitalism.

just so you know.

SLOWLY getting back to a decent pace. get up, do shit i like doing, share it with nice people.

well at least i finished editing the last timelapse video from inktober.

being kinda lazy about editing videos. or doing anything at all. head still a bit confused.

mh ~ 

kinda anxious today. slightly inert. my brain is a bit confused about suddenly not feeling depressed.

streaming (writing) 

Okay, here we go, Monday maths writing book stream: twitch.tv/jordigh

Having a streaming schedule for book-writing is making me *look forward* to writing more. I've been anticipating all the *fun* I'm going to have writing.

It's just been two weeks, though. I hope I can keep up this enthusiasm. I am enjoying the writing process.

I'll be starting in a few minutes.

i like how the skin color of the body parts' emojis i use is called "moderate skin".

"what color is your skin?"
"oh, it's moderate."

also yes, i'm scanning drawings to make them available on my website.

TODAY.

xsane isn't giving me a progress bar when scanning and that makes me terribly nervous.

Still believe that Bitcoin is the future of financial transactions?

I'm sorry, but no, that's laughable.

Bitcoin and the blockchain are amazing technologies, but they don't scale for what we are currently using them for.

Yes, there are enough clueless people in the market so that you can still make a quick buck (with a bit of luck anyway), but it's just one big bubble waiting to burst - by design.

Does that mean all crypto currencies suck? No, we're working on better alternatives.

Show thread

Apparently some more clarification is needed here. I don't even mean to bash on Bitcoin. As I've said in this thread and many times before: it's an amazing and successful technology. By all means, go ahead and use it for whatever you like! It's great.

But please, just don't pretend and keep pushing it as the revolution that will be replacing our entire finance system. It just won't.
