It’s 3:30 AM and I need to go to sleep, but I’m excited that I just discovered this app called Digikam, that’s totally open source, it’s a KDE package. For managing photo collections. Its exactly what I needed and seems quite stable. I have been dreading organizing my photos cause I got sick of proprietary apps fucking with my organization.

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day.
*Vor 74 Jahren befreite die Rote Armee Auschwitz.
Etwas wie "Wiedergutmachung" ist vielleicht niemals möglich. Ein bewusster Umgang mit Schuldgefühlen und der friedliche Einsatz gegen Faschismus hoffentlich schon!
*
74 years ago the Red Army liberated the Auschwitz extermination camp.
Something like "redemption" may never be possible. A conscious contact with feelings of guilt and the peaceful work against fascism hopefully is!

@ND3JR @Manuela hi! I am working with and for self-management since several years and what I like about that article, is it’s critical reflection. I am still pro self-management, but it needs to get along with accountability! I’m for mindful leadership within cooperative structures, not for charismatic top down leaders. That’s important to add.

Peer-to-peer networks, platforms, decentralisation, worker empowerment and other forms of worker-led democracy allover. Why, then, do we need managers? aeon.co/essays/no-boss-no-than Why self-management without someone being responsible never works!

@emi Same here! Join me in the Alps! Or let's meet half way! The Himalayas?

@alatitude77 @Manuela sounds interesting, and very technical to me. It makes me curious. Where is this knowledge applied? What practical needs does it serve?
