Here's an intro. I'm Jessie (she/her), 25 I think. I rediscovered art through embroidery during university where I studied ecology.

I currently stitch characters and creatures experiencing nature and love.

I also garden and all my art money goes to food + food plants. I hope to acquire degraded farm land soon with the help of friends and restore it into a food-producing, carbon-storing forest ecosystem, and share the abundance with both humans and wild animals.

Thanks for looking ♥

The Matra Terminal by Minitel from 1984. This was used to access Videotex, which before the web, was probably one of the most online services. Actually, even after the web, there were still millions of Minitel network connections as of 2009 (according to Wikipedia)

Help, fediverse - a little while back I saw a post about a self-hosted Twitch-like streaming platform, and now I can't find it again (might've been on the birdsite). It wasn't Open Streaming Platform.What am I thinking of?
