Introductions Show more
Hey folks, as I've struck out into the fediverse, it strikes me that I haven't redone #introductions
So, I'm Paul. The Cookie Brigade calls me Mom. I'm a java dev for my day job. In my spare time, I stream in the mornings at https://www.twitch.tv/cookiemom , I work on board game ideas, and I chase down whatever interests me at the time. Currently I'm trying to make a mead that resembles a chocolate chip cookie. We'll see how that goes.
Caucus, resolutions Show more
The first line of the caucus said stuff had to be specific for city or school board, so... holding all that stuff until 2020.
It appears the tenth Minnesota State High School All Hockey Hair team will be the final one. It's been a fun ride folks.
Civ VI Show more
Finished a game of Civ VI with the new expansion loaded, "diplomatic" victory by 1891, powered by my army of giant death robots. I like how the new expansion added science past the typical threshhold, but it seems a lot more muted in it's benefits, same with the civics. The natural disasters were a very interesting add, but didn't appear to have a significant effect on the gameplay, just providing random events for my Civ to react to, though ice cap melting never got a chance to get going

MSP pol, advisory board, rabble rousing Show more
If you can't make the meeting, reach out to your local representative and bring it up to them.
A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.
An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.
MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.
We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
