@MG All the best.
As a bi dude, there is generally a distinction I make between feeling uncomfortable in gay male spaces and in straight male spaces. In the former, I worry that I'll be dismissed or accused of faking it. In the later, I worry someone might kill me. #bisexualmenspeak
This makes me feel a little bit sick.
Our disaster recovery requires more disks.
The Hackers.town fundraising hoodie is back.
A few quick answers...
CustomInk earned our business last year... They fixed a couple of international issues, and because of that... we are going with them again.
The silver will be metallic... one color of ink on the whole thing.
The Barcode shown on the back right shoulder will actually be on the left side of the Hood... it simply points to https://hackers.town
Any money raised above the minimum required will be donated to the EFF.
The terrain used to be sacred.
Your house, the hill, the woods, the town. The distant tower or the mountain was the axis mundi. Over there, across the water or down the road was outside.
We've stripped away the sanctity from the land. Every place looks like every other place. Carefully antiseptically contrived and branded and marketed to be comfortably familiar non-places.
We worship abstract unrealities now. Untethered in time or tradition or ideology. adrift and amorphous and isolated and neurotic.
All the better to sell us single non-transferable use sacrements in disposable plastic packaging.
The only responsible reaction is to rebel against purity. Find meaning in ambiguity and individuality. Bind your days and seasons and hours in rituals and wards against the amnesia of capital.

"I dissuade party members from putting down people who do not understand. Even people who are unenlightened and seemingly bourgeois should be answered in a polite way. Things should be explained to them as fully as possible. I was turned off by a person who did not want to talk to me because I was not important enough. After the Black Panther Party was formed, I nearly fell into this error. I could not understand why people were blind to what I saw so clearly. Then I realised that their understanding had to be developed.” - Huey Newton
