Big news! I have an account on a Diaspora service called Sysad.
And an XMPP account which you can message me at the account or on lemmy.ml to get. I don't expect to chat much but maybe. I would be interested to hear from others who've done this in the past. Maybe even doing an interview by email or chat with lessons learned, tips for a newb.
If you came from my post on Lemmy, then hi. I could still use help obtaining an email address so that I can participate in open source coding.
At this point, I find myself like a voyager who has arrived, but it's like the natives are hiding, and I forgot all the heady visions I had on the trip here. It's probably a sign that I'm tired and should rest before getting to the real work.
