Temporal autonomy is a very important freedom and I would even say human right that's worth fighting for! It has so many unexpected positive side effects.
Such as watching a video at 4:20am on a Wednesday where Terence McKenna blows our minds talking about how "biological systems [like humans] are amplifiers of quantum mechanical indeterminancy".
What is the role of emotion in the classroom, and how do teachers talk to students about emotion? Is it treated as ‘noise’? Okay in small amounts? A barrier to learning? And do emotions happen to you, or do you create emotions yourself?
I created this infographic for teachers about my latest research that included 750 teachers from Greece, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Please forward it to any teachers in your life! 😺
The eight-hour day is an anachronism when at current levels of productivity most people should be working only three. It was an achievement more than a hundred years ago when Uruguay made it the law in 1915, but it's not a great thing to not make any progress in a hundred years.
The show must move on. #MayDay
The HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) #Kanye West wants to build cities now.
Before Trump won all the white nationalists were talking about was an opt-out option. Would that be the future of lib-municipalism?Alt-righters in one city, anarcho-primitivists in another, ancoms in one place, liberals begging us to stay put?
When I started the quixotic journey to create a taxonomy of all human knowledge the most common (and well meaning) questions people asked me were: Why? What’s the point (you know Wikipedia exists right)? And the more obvious: Are you bonkers?
But I started because a taxonomy of knowledge primarily designed as a teaching resource ceased to exist. So, yeah.
On this #MayDay, I wish for myself and all others who so wish to fully liberate ourselves from wage labour (including freelancing and 'gig economy' work).
So happy to be dedicating the majority of my time to solidarity, cooperative, libre, commons, and pro-bono work 😀 😌 🙃
Self-directed cooperation FTW!

Here’s the equation for an awesome compliment according to Marshall Rosenberg:
- Think of something someone has done to make your life wonderful (Do not use names like, you're smart, brilliant, or great, instead explain what they did to make your life so great)
- Think about how that specific action makes you feel
- And finally what need of yours it fulfilled (eg, honesty, peace, connection, meaning, play etc)
So: another’s action+your feels+need it met+actually saying it= amazing compliment.
Okay. Deleted Facebook, deleted Instagram. Feels good so far!

The Asch #conformity #experiments or the Asch Paradigm refers to a series of studies directed by Solomon Asch studying if and how individuals yielded to or defied a majority group and the effect of such influences on beliefs and opinions:
Only 5 percent of participants were always swayed by the crowd. 25 percent of the sample consistently defied majority opinion, with the rest conforming on some trials.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asch_conformity_experiments
Both dog and cat currently at vet getting their gonads removed. There was a lot of pressure to do it - esp from other dog owners - but I had read up a lot of counter-arguments, mostly from Scandinavian countries (in Norway it's illegal to neuter dogs). This was why I sat on the fence about it for 5 years.
But since the dog's aggression towards other dogs was getting worse, and since we had already arranged to get his kitten bro's balls removed, better at the same time... https://social.coop/media/-JGeSaWW2xTUTatanM4
Hey @Antanicus :) @mayel and I have begun planning how to collect resources for HAHA Academy! Wanted to know your thoughts about the range of questions we've come up with so far! The doc's available here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1F_9z1N2AqEwoZO-4HZzGwMa3mpZMfw64FTYwgb3xncM/edit?usp=sharing
The last question is a first stab in the dark as to how to gather info to create dependencies between the topics. I've seen it done well within textbooks (like in the image below), but want to create more of a cross-category dependency system 🍎 🤓 https://social.coop/media/ZP6qO_4eAVakHm2FbW4
