We've had a Wii for a fortnight now: every day I play it, the game gets incorporated into my dreams.
Last night: The rhythm heaven game became a 'clock' for the running of society - if I didn't hit the second hand at the exact time a bit of the world exploded - I realised the futility of top-down clock keeping and shared the responsibilities. After that was decentralised I had to cut down - like in Zelda - all the centralists that wanted to run the clock themselves fearing others incapable.
Went to an interesting event last night about solidarity with the Kurdish cooperative movement in and around Rojava. Is there anything on this happening in North America, or anywhere else for that matter?
Hiya @priryo 😺
I wrote about the process here: http://emo.world/2018/05/01/on-creating-a-taxonomy-of-all-human-knowledge-for-haha-academy/
I'm still working away at it nearly every day, and all the recent updates can be viewed on the wiki: https://wiki.haha.academy/Special:RecentChanges
+complete the review of how other educational websites tag their resources (especially from a learner rather than teacher perspective)! phew!
Parasocial relationships are strong emotional bonds with people you’ve never met and who do not relate back to you—or can’t, if they are fictional characters - If you’re good at making friendships in the real world you’re also good at experiencing parasocial relationships.
Like our social relationships in real life, parasocial relationships vary in type and depth. Relationships can be profound and develop over decades, while others are more like casual acquaintances.
My rant against the OECD (amongst others) and their perpetuation of a single model of emotional competency valid across all cultural contexts. Solution? Decentralise social and emotional education baby! http://emo.world/2018/06/19/creating-a-roadmap-of-social-and-emotional-skills-for-haha-academy-a-case-study-of-decentralised-knowledge-creation/
The obvious answer to why cats sometimes stare for no reason is they probably saw a bug or shadow
But I like to think they're actually seeing the faint traces of distorted spacetime as trans-dimensional visitors pop into and out of our universe

I dread the day that silicon valley 'discovers' the fediverse and it starts getting popular in a Big way.
the day that happens is the day that VC money starts pouring into startups that will try to 'develop' (ie systematically colonize, commercialize, and exploit) the fediverse, which is, as of today, one of the few non-capitalist (as in non-commercialized) spaces left on the internet.
how do we prevent this from happening? how do we make it impossible for this to happen in the first place?
