@textfiles now 67 episodes!
Mastodon sometimes sends me along notifies that people are saying the equivalent of "Here is Jason's account on mastodon but he almost never posts, he posts on twitter but twitter badddddd" across the month. Sorry about that, I go where the mass audience is.
If you're exclusively here, let me suggest my podcast, "Jason Scott Talks His Way Out of It" https://patreon.com/textfiles - monetary support is encouraged but not required. I'm at 61 episodes and growing weekly.
The next 170+ Ted Nelson scans are up at https://archive.org/details/tednelsonjunkmail?sort=-publicdate (and the previous 5,000+ also up there).
So, while I'm banned over at Twitter (ban lifts sooner rather than later), I did want to say that while people want me at Mastodon full-time, I don't feel it's QUITE ready for that, and I'm still up in the air about the character and quality of what I want to do fitting in here. I chose a digipres Mastodon and I'm worried I'll be wearing people out. Maybe I just need to make my own instance.
@textfiles p.s. this is a spam account that instructed me to follow Kim Kardashian on Instagram
I think I need to start documenting the Quicktime format of Grandia's strange nonstandard .MOV files. Might help me figure out what the heck it is.
I could use eyes from anyone familiar with MPEG and similar codecs, too; I have a feeling eyeballing the video bitstream is going to be necessary to figure out what it is.

Thanks for the comments so far. This mostly stems from a tweet that @beet_keeper made on Twitter with details for http://ndsa.org/meetings/ and the "In/visible Work" theme kind of interested me - maybe my work in being public facing would have use to people who didn't go up through radio/tv/film like I did, and how I work to bring attention that way. I generally swear off archive conferences now but the thought occurred to me.
