Crypto is about more than number-go-up, and the real conversations are only beginning.

Just out in the @washingtonpost: coverage of @VitalikButerin's almost-out book that I edited, Proof of Stake. washingtonpost.com/business/20

"Uno de los problemas más persistentes de los antiautoritarismos en general y de los anarquismos en particular es la incapacidad de descifrar que la marca comercial "poder" traduce el paradigma (sistema) de violencia/dominación bajo el cual estamos sometidos.

Mientras no hagamos una canción bien melódica que diga "poder es violencia y dominación" seguiremos lxs antiautoritarixs tan poco estratégico, hablando de un "poder bueno, o de los pueblos, o popular".

El mayor acierto de los poderistas ha sido convencer que la violencia es algo distinto al poder y que el poder es una cosa neutra, domesticable."

It's official- the studio I work for is shuttering in a month.

If you need or know someone who needs either:

- A Unity/C# Generalist

- A programmer with a background in music / audio technology

- An Art Hacker with gallery / museum experience

for paid work, I would deeply appreciate the connection

Boosts much appreciated.

I actually do enjoy doing stand-up, especially now because, you know, life is so busy and it is so hectic, and with stand-up, I can just go out, and relax and enjoy the silence. STEVE MARTIN

A day in cusco.

Visited Saqsaywaman. It used to be the biggest temple around, 500 years ago. The Inca building style didn't use any mortar. Just cut the blocks of granite into jigsaw shapes so they hold together without. Strong and earthquake proof.

Then the Catholics took it apart to use the blocks in their cathedrals. Which were also impressively ornate. But which fell over in the next earthquake.

While i was there the front area was full of school kids practicing their dance and ceremony for solstice. Was quite impressive.

Also a church in town. Much of the town is built on Inca foundations. That mortice free interlocking blocks. Then modern styles in top.

The museum of precolombian art has lots of very old art. This fox jug is thousands of years old.

📰 Ecofascistas a la vuelta de la esquina 📰

Entrevista con el politólogo Carlos Taibo.

Por Andrés Lomeña

Profesor, doctor en sociología y colaborador de Common Action Forum

Antes de leer Ecofascismo: una introducción (Catarata, 2022) de Carlos Taibo, hubiera dicho que el término ecofascista es un sarcasmo de la derecha para denigrar a ciertos ecologistas por su supuesto fanatismo climático. Taibo, en cambio, mantiene que el ecofascismo es más bien una aberración ideológica embrionaria que nace no tanto de los negacionistas climáticos como de las elites, que habrían perdido toda esperanza o interés por permitir que otros se libren del desastre. Asimismo, el autor conecta la pandemia de COVID con el cambio climático porque durante el confinamiento se ensayaron estados de excepción y hasta una suerte de gerontofobia (por la cual sobraría la población más anciana), dos vetas posibles del desarrollo ecofascista. Esta entrevista es una aproximación especulativa a los escenarios distópicos que se avecinan.

Los privilegiados han entrado en sus cápsulas de escape.

Por Douglas Rushkoff

La tecnología nos ha dado el sueño de un futuro capullo. Ahora lo estamos viviendo.

Nota del editor: Este artículo es una secuela de "Supervivencia de los ricos" (climaterra.org/post/la-supervi) un informe sobre cómo los ricos conspiran para dejarnos atrás después de un evento apocalíptico.

A very good conversation on Half Past Capitalism about Mondragon's foreign subsidiaries (and other topics). :TwinPines:

At Karrot we love the idea to minimize the time people spend in the software.

One click to sign into an activity can correspond to hours of doing useful stuff out there in/with community.

In contrast to that are social media platforms where many hours of clicking, might correspond to degraded mental health, and no doing stuff out there...

We don't tend to focus on metrics/productivity/etc, but this is high efficiency to my mind!

Scott McCloud didn't do the second comic. That's done by Leah Elliott and pokes a bit of fun at Scott, too.

It's a good read.

I very much enjoyed McCloud's "Understanding Comics" book years ago. It is still good.

I don't agree with many of his other opinions and positions, though. He's probably still very pro-Google (though that's a guess on my part).

@Tutanota Absolutely great and easily digestable summary! Thanks!
One important thing about #Firefox:
its development team receives money from Alphabet (Google) since a moment and in return, has decided to remove the button in the URL field where you could easily choose your #searchengine. #Google is now the default and compared to older FF versions it is still possible but cumbersome to change to another search engine, e.g., #duckduckgo. Millions of users will by that decide to use Google. 🤔

Sometimes the internet is really funny - or scary.

The Chrome browser is one example.

While you believe you are browsing the web, Google is browsing you instead.

Queen Elizabeth achieved a remarkable thing in convincing the world that the monarchy's raw power and wealth is actually a duty and a burden.

If you've never read "Debt, the First 5,000 Years" by #Graeber, and maybe never want to, but still want a kind of spark notes version of it, this interview covers a few foundational subjects raised by the book:
