Holding yourself to the expectation that stuff you make needs to be Good to be worthwhile is the biggest impediment for trying new things. Especially if your standard of "good" is literal professionals.


And if you want to learn how I make any of the things that I do, I would love to teach :)

@DialMforMara mostly light up glowy things but I multiclass into some other crafts.

I really need to get a showcase website up.

give me a sec and I can link some stuff

@DialMforMara Project before that, and what I'm currently writing up product documentation for a short run of: Rainbow Sign

@DialMforMara I also recently did a video essay about the newly released space exploration game Outer Wilds:

"The World is Always Ending: Outer Wilds (video essay, spoilers)" [15:05]

@DialMforMara Not quite that high skill! This is LEDs and side-glow fiber optics :)

@DialMforMara This is Version 2. Version 1 used El Wire and was way less good.

@starkatt Also very cool. (I asked if it was glass bc @Canageek is studying glassblowing)


unless your medium is software

(big /s there. *so* much hate out there for software that Doesn't Do Things Right that it really bugs me)

@starkatt This seems like a timely message for me. Thanks for posting it.
