hello! my name is Paul, I've been around the fediverse for a while now but only just joined rage.love.
I mostly post about computers, languages, and leftist stuff, though I do make the occasional terrible dad-joke. I have kids (that I don't really post pictures of) and cats (that I post a lot of pictures of)
I'm pretty laid-back and will always accept CW requests if I post anything untoward. my account is locked but feel free to send me a follow request
listening to @powderpaint 's new EP and as the kids say these days, it "fucking slaps so hard"
it'll hurt you, it'll heal you, go listen to it now: https://powderpaint.bandcamp.com/album/powderpaint
with all the simulation talk, guess it's time to post one of my favorite short stories https://qntm.org/responsibility
Today was my first day on the wards! Here’s how it went.
I got to the hospital at 6:30. (From here on out, I’ll be getting to the hospital a bit earlier than this to check on whichever patients I’ve been assigned.) I met the members of my surgical team that I’ll be a part of for the next 4 weeks, and we went on rounds. Rounds consists of visiting all the patients on our roster, checking their wounds, changing dressings, etc.
instance block recommendation
boseburo.ddns.net is a Pleroma instance that "stands for Freedom of Speech" (sic) and "against politically correctness and censorship", along with a small pile of dogwhistles rejecting accountability ("against character assassination" etc.). admin has thrown xenophobia at me for criticising German trans laws (above).
I appreciate sighted fediverse users concern about image descriptions and ways to be "screenreader friendly." Mostly I agree with you, maybe with quibbles but they're not worth trying to nitpick and I'm aware I'm not the sole authority, just one visually impaired person.
But sometimes you all end up talking to each other and I worry that some of the advice that makes me wince is getting solidified into prescriptivism. Please make sure visually impaired people are part of these conversations.
PSA: I know image descriptions aren't possible for everyone and I respect that access-needs clash (all disabled people are familiar with this phenomenon). But I also know a lot more people can describe their images than are currently doing so.
If you can, you should describe
* jokes and memes; it's no good telling me I'm not missing anything
* gifs and videos
* your art! I see so much art I can't boost
* cute animal pics; I'm always sad when I can't boost the cute dogs
* audio clips too!
