I've just renamed it the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Community Calendar. Are there any Ypsi folks who would like to help keep it up-to-date? @samfirke @dzombak

This photo of Dr Bouman deserves to be one of the classic images in physics. Amazing to capture the first glimpse. Such a genuine response
Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press.

Amazing work. And here’s to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) 💥🔥☄️

A few us, including @samfirke and @dzombak, maintain it. If you are interested in helping keep it up to date, let us know.

The Ann Arbor Townie Calendar is a thing that has a number of important dates on it, including home football games, art fair, the car show, and other things that are useful to know. You can subscribe to it here

The reason Apple added systemwide dark mode to macOS before/instead of iOS is such a mystery to me.

There's huge demand for it, and it should be easier: the fact that apps are (mostly; iPad slightly complicates it) full screen would eliminate the problem of some applications/documents having bright white backgrounds in an overall dark interface. On an iPhone, the screen can be all-or-nothing dark since it's displaying a single app/document.

For those of you who read RSS on macOS (cc @andrew), Reeder 4 Beta is available

I would like to enable Mastodon's full-text search feature, but I doubt this virtual machine has the RAM to handle it 🙁:

The next VM up the list would be $15/month, which is quite a lot. Probably not worth it.
