I'm looking to add a few more moderators to this instance to keep on top of the new user account requests - anybody interested in helping out?

Kith.Kitchen meta, emojis 

Hey all, Kith.Kitchen now has custom emojis, including: :garlic: :knitting: :valid: :big_mood: :bee2: :plantifa: and blobcats.

Just click on the emoji icon and depending on what web interface or app you are using, they will just come up or be listed under 'Custom'.

If you see an emoji on another instance you like that we don't have, let me know & I'll try to add it.

'The Myth of Metaphor'

> The idea that good user interface design is based on metaphors is one of the most insidious of the many myths that permeate the software community.

> Metaphors offer a tiny boost in learnability to first time users at tremendous cost.

“If It’s Inaccessible To The Poor It’s Neither Radical Nor Revolutionary.”

This is honestly my biggest problem with silicone valley and start-ups in general.

Cutting edge tech is cool and exciting but it's not a revolution until everyone can get at it.

Laura has had a fever, we don't think it's covid but either way I'll be housebound for the next two weeks now.
