Time for new a #introduction??
Hi! I'm micah. I'm a 31 year old enby #software engineer in #boston who's sometimes a cat satyr and sometimes a big ol' dog! I'm the admin of meemu.org and scream.today. I like to doodle, watch #starTrek, make horrible mastodon themes, and pet cats. My interests include public transit, #food, and being a big gay.
I use they/them pronouns!
You can find my blog over here @catgoat for longer posts.

Covid-19, long term expectations
Listen, we're looking at a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks of extreme measures, this round, and in North America, round 2 hits October to November for another 6 to 8 weeks minimum.
I don't know how else to communicate how fundamentally this is going to change society.
covid-19, commercial ventilator being open-sourced
"Medical device company Medtronic released designs for one of their ventilators to open source for use in the COVID-19 pandemic."
"The design details released today are for their PB560 model, which was originally launched in 2010 by a company called Covidien, before it merged with Medtronic, so we’re already starting with a device design that’s a decade old. But it’s also a design that has proven itself through widespread use, and this data dump gives us a great look at what actually goes into one of these machines."
The article notes the information isn't yet complete; my guess is it's still in the process of being collated.

"good praxis" - I'll be honest this one is empty, I made the folder and I don't remember what I was going to put there and I think it's funny that it's empty. But I think gardening stuff was going there?
"capitalism bad" - online shopping stuff
"*lonely howling*" - some volunteering resource stuff for during pandemic lockdown
It's #transdayofvisibility although every day is that here on meemu!!
