Excited to start our new care circle process for GEO, just a simple periodic member to member check-in. (Got the idea from the HUM course on decentralized organizing.)

@aral We're in a bad place with browsers. I mostly use Mozilla derived browsers even though Mozilla is really a Google subsidiary and in its raw form spies on the user via telemetry which is difficult to turn off.

Browsers need to be simplified so that their maintenance does not require a corporation with 1000 staff.

1.4 billion phones are sold globally each year, and only 20% are properly recycled. What if we could turn Black Friday GREEN? Help us reach our goal of recycling 20,000 phones in 2020 by sending us your old phones. ♻️

I see a lot of promising software and organizing around economic networks that will show you and all the people and organizations involved all of their economic connections, and in some cases, also their social connections.

I'll skip the stuff that we are working on now and cite the movements happening around Solawis in Europe: write.as/economic-networks/a-f or around collabathon.openclimate.earth/


Upgraded to 20.04.1, smoothly it seems. I think I started back at version 8? Back then, every upgrade was hair-raising for me, so many problems would crop up. I would have to feel my way around on the command line like driving a bumper car in the dark. 懐かしい

Just sent the last Unit of @luisrazeto's How to Create a Solidarity Enterprise to our GEO websteward @GuerillaOntologist

In the final Unit the solidarity group determines how to remunerate labor, capital, and the C Factor and distribute surplus. The emphasis is on proportionality, which Razeto calls the second “great force for efficiency that makes the solidarity enterprise grow and develop.”

Very grateful to @luisrazeto for this piece of his life's work. Also @emi & @LeoSammallahti

We've been functioning as one for sometime, but we just voted and payed the lawyer for Veloz Courier to officially incorporate as a worker co-op :)))

Just created my account at meet.coop and did some testing.

I was expecting a clunky 'open source zoom' alternative. Instead, I was met with a service that's above and beyond what zoom offers. Even things like annotations which don't work properly with zoom on linux, worked flawlessly. I also love their implementation of slides with no need to use screen share. Watching youtube videos works really well too. So impressed :)

Is that jar of frozen stuff from last year cranberry sauce or borscht?

@johnkuti On Loomio you mentioned getting BBB via Moodle -- is the price you mentioned the cost for an individual account/membership?


Finished Peter Salmon's biography of Jacques . Writing the biography of a philosopher is a huge task, if you really get into the philosophy itself. (Azurmendi's intellectual biography of does this.) The other way is to write what is basically a well-informed, expanded Wikipedia entry that describes the philosophy but leaves it out, like music in the biography of a musician. (Robin Kelley's bio of is better in this regard.) Upshot: good but superficial book.

For me, 2020 has been, among other things, the year for getting poems from people that tell me how I show up in my work. Reminds me of a line from a poem whose author I can't recall, "Is it the you in me I love, or the me in you?" Definitely the us in us.
