I'm checking out of talking about about how bad things are ...
(I've been telling this to my friends IRL too.)

But... when action is brought up im in. 100%

also I like the song hype by 21 pilots right now, its calming me :P

god songs hidden inside bad songs.

Paul McCartney - Band on the Run.
Roxy Music - If there is something

Like when I'm on my bike and a huge truck is griefing me ... zip zip ... pedal pedal pedal ...

Show thread

Speaking of the war on cars...
I'm imagining a small modern cordless drill with a big honking bit would be good at disabling truck tires quickly and quietly.

thoughts ?

Is a Nikon D3500 good?
Do I need to buy it?
$750 new with regular and tele lens.
I like taking pictures.
I'm terrible at organzing them.
I'm good at writing code to do stuff like organizing things.

Think globally act locally means, I got a flipfone, and im disconnecting.

If I can't do anything about it, then what is it?
Ukraine ... what's that?

I feel less anxious already.

I can still volunteer for local progressive politick stuff.



We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!


Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.



Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!



Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

Lots of highly populated areas of the US are having water problems and/or fire problems and/or heat problems.

I don't see how people will organically start making there way to Maine, NH, and Vermont.

We don't have jobs, but we have water and land, and a relatively safe climate.

Paolo Bacigalupi's books Windup Girl and Water Knife are sci fi books that deal with the capitalist/climate/social/poor issues we are seeing with climate change.

They are dark, but maybe entertaining, and maybe can give ideas how to fight back.


Bernie at the Labornotes thing.

Progressives and labor voices joining.

They do their thing "in" the system, others work "outside" the system. It's all people power.


I'm betting this will be funny.

Shut Up, You Fucking Baby! is still super funny to me.

...there is a way you can get irrefutable proof that these actions are real. Go do one of your own. Everyone with the urge to paint, to burn, to cut, to jam: now is the time. Go forth and manifest the things you wish to see. #JanesRevenge


What's a good chat setup for my non tech friends ?

I'm leaning towards xmpp, with lightwitch accounts, using conversations on android.

The word "freedom" has become useless. You have to explain what you mean by it so much when you use it that it's lost its utility as a word.

It's fine, I don't lament it.

I'm taking the Organizing For Power online course. O4P. It's pretty cool. The main zoom sessions have like 1000 people more? worldwide. After a main presentation they split down into regional groups for exercises.

Jane McAlevay answers questions in the chat :) And she presents too.
All of the presenters are really good.
