I'm a software developer living in a haunted mansion in Chicago. I'm originally from Silicon Valley, a fact that I am both proud and ashamed of.
My pronouns are he/him/his; my website is evanhahn.com; my musical taste is embarrassing.

Just followed a Pixelfed (@pixelfed) account from Mastodon. I am now sure I love the fediverse
If #Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C. https://sluggerotoole.com/2018/10/12/bitcoin-must-die/

@Slackwise What is your preferred setup for ClojureScript development? Just curious as someone who loves Clojure(Script) but doesn't know the tooling well.

"Whether you followed along with a news outlet’s livestream or liveblog, watched the event on cable news, or relied on Twitter to curate a highlight reel, your experience was mediated and shaped by the filter bubbles that dictate whose opinions you see when you read things on the web. Where some see sober, science-backed credibility, other see a circus."

@alex I noticed that the link to jawns.club is messed up in the bigshoulders.city description in this paragraph:
"Boundless credit to our sister instances in Portland and Philadelphia for inspiration."
It links to "https://bigshoulders.city/:https://jawns.club%22", which seems wrong. I assume there's an HTML mistake somewhere.

@cocoron sorry to @ you out of the blue, but I have a question.
If you had thousands of dollars to donate to climate change causes, how would you spend it? I'm pretty ignorant about what methods are effective and wondered if you might know more.

Does anyone have a good setup for ctags? I've tried a bunch of stuff and I've failed every time. Part of it is due to a lack of understanding, frankly, but part of it seems to be poor plugin support.

bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future.1 Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.”2
Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas (like at the mastodon exhibit at the Field!), pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
