Hello new followers. This account seems to be becoming my account for incoming Twitter transfers. But I'm also available at @6gain if you want to complete the set.
I should really focus more on #solarpunk style network infrastructure that runs off renewables and is happy/resilient when servers are down.
I have some initial thoughts, but can anyone recommend good projects, resources, people to follow, or forums?
I'll start getting a list together.
Getting near the end of the Vorrh trilogy by B Catling, and strongly recommend it. Rich language holding together dark, mysterious ideas about the conflict between man and nature. Gormenghast meets #solarpunk.
Rambling Paean To The Fediverse
Discovering the Fediverse has restored a great deal of the initial wonder and promise of the internet for me. That sense of active exploration and participation; of the possibilities for creation and connection. Quitting corporate social media was a necessary first step, granting liberation from the passive "lean back" culture of spoon-fed content consumption. But the #DIY ethos of Fedi is the most beautifully punk thing I've encountered in quite some time. Kudos.
If #capitalism in its current form is the engine driving #ClimateChange and environmental collapse then deconstructing, reforming, and replacing it must be seen as nothing less than an existential issue: a fight for survival. As awareness grows, the battle lines will be drawn through society, politics and culture; between us and the people we know; through the pulsing emotional cores of our own all-too-human hearts. 1/2
