I made @waxy, @xoxo, @upcomingorg, belong.io, playfic.com, @supercutorg, kindofbloop.com. Helped build @kickstarter. he/him/his
This incredibly vulnerable talk from @thelindsayellis is so important—covering the lack of resources for those targeted by coordinated harassment campaigns, the impact on mental health, and the isolating effect of friends afraid to lend support. https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1185263585129164800
Who are *your* favorite #inktober artists this year? Share them!

In hindsight, we should’ve waited until Halloween to post @TheGoodDeath’s XOXO talk. 💀⚰️ https://twitter.com/thegooddeath/status/1184561041562193920
Ze's on a quest to make a True Facts episode about EVERYTHING in the universe, and needs your help.
So @zefrank left BuzzFeed at the end of March, but he's still making True Facts videos. Here's the latest, about the Sand Bubbler Crab. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP8BUWr4AT4
I'm so grateful that @SlaylerJ shared her story at XOXO, this is one of my favorite talks ever. She's so incredibly charming and thoughtful, and it was really interesting to hear why she decided to leave YouTube to focus on her acting career. https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1184539370864467968
I went to @Powells last night to see Lynda Barry and Chris Ware, who are touring together for their new books, and it was just wonderful. Go if you can—they’re in LA, Brooklyn, Cambridge, Chicago, and Toronto over the next few weeks. https://www.drawnandquarterly.com/event/2019/09/lynda-barrys-making-comics-tour-chris-ware

I guess this is a thing for me. From 2016:
where else would you hear about "Plannerland," a conference for planner hobbyists that just went up in flames https://www.reddit.com/r/HobbyDrama/comments/del90d/planner_a_fyre_festival_for_planners_plannerland/
HobbyDrama is "the most interesting subreddit about things you're not interested in," focused on dramatic blowups in niche communities, from powerlifters and scrapbookers to competitive Nerf modders and Wiggles fandom. https://www.reddit.com/r/HobbyDrama/
very excited that devine and rekka came to xoxo to preview how we'll all be living in the post-waterworld apocalypse https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1182353110745763840

turning 47 is the first time a birthday makes me feel old. I’m very much young at heart, lucky enough to be able and active, but it’s the first time in my life I’ve looked at my age written down and been like DAMN that’s quite a number. I’m ACTUALLY old now.
And your brain tumor would’ve turned 10 this year if you hadn’t ruthlessly murdered it. Happy birthday! #mathowielove
One of the funniest talks we've ever had, the behind-the-scenes of an internet goof that exploded online with a positive and lasting impact. So happy that @Hbomberguy told it at XOXO. https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1181990870125408256
"Learning to organize has been about learning to be an empathetic and cooperative human being again, despite the culture and despite what society raises us to be." https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1181624290111717376
Go and Python are unpatriotic it seems. Maybe sarcasm. I hope.
Sorry you’re dealing with this, but also, “What makes you still alive, with an ugly face?” is pretty hilarious.
"Anxiety is like sexy depression." This talk from @brokeymcpoverty is so raw and funny and vulnerable, truly honored she felt comfortable telling this story at XOXO. 💜 https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1181270582689558530
psst the xoxo 2019 talks are going up now, smash that bell https://twitter.com/xoxo/status/1181270242300817413
Really, really loved @melgillman’s 24 Hour Comic Day comic. https://twitter.com/melgillman/status/1180446901713408001?s=21
@waxpancake odd event organizer copyright photo question. If a speaker provides a headshot to you, do you need to confirm they own the copyright, and how? Might be getting sued by a photographer whose work was given to me by a speaker for her headshot on the website.
Unfortunately, yes. The hassle of clearing photos is why we don’t use them anymore.
"A year ago I got black-out drunk at a charity bar crawl. My best friend commissioned a painting of his favorite photo of me from that night." https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/dduqhl/a_year_ago_i_got_blackout_drunk_at_a_charity_bar/
This @hoodinternet mashup of 50 songs from 1979 is next level great. (via @kottke) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkBgmzocow4
I *think* I identified all but six of the samples, and posted it as a YouTube comment here. Can you find songs by Gang of Four, Joy Division, Sister Sledge, The Specials, Talking Heads, or Wire in the mashup? I'm stumped. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkBgmzocow4&lc=Ugz7t_sL0Qfgw5duhGR4AaABAg
I'm going to have Rainbow's "Since You've Been Gone" stuck in my head for the rest of the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1P17ct4e5OE
We're selling a limited number of @xoxo shirts for the first time, printed on @cottonbureau's excellent tri-blend premium Blank tees in sizes from XS to 5XL. $10 each! https://buyolympia.com/Artist/XOXO
What The Golf? is hilariously weird and good, a pastiche of dozens of different videogames and genres. (Pretty much everything except actual golf games.) Highly recommended, out now for PC/Mac/iOS. https://twitter.com/tribandtweets/status/1179055583565094913
i have so many questions
Thanks to @torrez for pointing out this delightful ten-year-old Twitter magic trick: a tweet that links to itself. https://twitter.com/spoonhenge/status/2878871344
