After 15+ years of using Twitter, I am moving to a self-hosted, federated ActivityPub-based microblog. Too many buzzwords? They all mean something and something concrete. From now on, Twitter will be secondary, and the primary post will be on @firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are on Mastadon or any other ActivityPub compatible server, search for @email@example.com and follow me. I intend to follow everyone back in the initial period.

Sanchaya had organized an event around the release of Karnata F Kittel Font. I got to attend it. Some of his grand-grand kids were at the event. The amount of love I saw for Kittel amazed me. Kittel has a special place in every Kannadigas heart and mind.
It looks like I have injured myself. It seems like an RSI. Nothing to worry about; I met the doctor, who advised me of the remedies. The good thing is we found out early; it’s minor and complete recovery is possible.
It’s Kannada Rajyotsava week. I have been unable to work on Nithya Kannada for a long time. I hope to contribute in other ways; how about a bot that sends a Kannada word daily? It could be helpful to even Kannada native speakers. Let me know.
It’s Deepavali week. Happy Deepavali to everyone. May the light shine enough to get rid of the darkness in our hearts and minds.
My friends are moving to the US for a while. I miss them already. At this point, I have more friends outside India than in India. This is probably true for others too. I think this is the second wave. The first wave was around 2010, almost ten years back.
