summary of social.coop strategy summits 

Is this super confusing? I just threw our notes from the strategy summits into a visual mind map... but it's not as helpful as i thought it would be...

part of it is the software and not being able to make it look pretty... if that's the only issue i can give it another go with other software but... maybe it's just not meant to be visually laid out like this? Maybe it'd be better as a prezi?

facebook monopoly money 

Forget the official name, I heard a better one:

Panopticoin.

It's so apt and succint.

Brief reminder that capitalism thrives on the backs of the expectation of women doing unpaid labor

pronouns! 

I boarded the bus today and passed somebody teaching another person about how personal pronouns are used.

They seemed to be in a very productive and positive discussion.

teaching musings, mh, (+), pt. II 

Also, a couple students stayed after class while I packed up, and we spent like 20 minutes discussing hackerspaces, guerilla public art with throwies, grappling with realizing that enjoying science and pursuing it is OK (as a woman), and how cool and empowering anarchist philosophies can be.

Yes. This is MSCI 101. We are engaging with the world, even after hours, and catalyzed by cool science, no less.

I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."

I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)

I've got three weeks to find a job before I lose my backup plan to foreclosure, and another month past that before I lose my home. I need gas money to get to job interviews. I'm eating the shipping on these bracelets to try and cover that. If you don't wear #jewelry or these aren't your style, please boost. They're anodized aluminum, brass, bronze, and stainless steel, all 7 inches, and all $15 to paypal.me/tarlimanjoppos or cash.app/$tarlimanjoppos #maille #art #mastoart #chainmail

I want a law that makes it illegal not to disclose that you have a digital assistant recording everything

Airport restrooms (+) 

Hey there, lovely #enby and #trans travelers.

I am writing to let you know that I have flown into Paine Field (PAE) for the first time, and am excited to report that every single #restroom there is single-occupancy gender-inclusive (with many accessible / family rooms).

And they also happen to be very very nice / clean.

Travel stresses me, but how amazing to have this little piece of stress lifted!

duct tape levels are currently severe

i'm doing nothing and suddenly i'm about a #solarpunk reality show, that instead of having forced petty drama and people being eliminated or whatever, is just a bunch of people living in this self-sufficient house, and they give each other life tips, share resources and skills, and help each other be better

i can imagine like, a person who sews a lot teaching others how to pattern so as not to waste a lot of fabric later, people with a green thumb giving tips to not let your plants die, someone helping others learn how to fix broken stuff, things like that

and they would be teaching themselves, but also the public?? and now I want this in my life#

what in heck someone made a typeface out of the national park signs

i love it

PNW weather (snow), selfie (no ec) 

Shoveled more today than I have in a decade or more! Brings back east coast memories. Time for a rare selfie.

Seriously, though. folks not used to the weather are hunkered down; schools in the area have been cancelled for days.

Located a few hours away, my mother sent me a picture of my sister at the nearest main road, a steep hill. She is standing in skiing gear, road unplowed. What does it mean? Nobody leaves Magnolia today? Indeed.

Job loss inventory clearance: I have two of these left in stock, $25 including USA shipping. Mixed anodized aluminum and neoprene, one size fits most. #lgbtqa #pride #rainbow #chainmail #maille #art #mastoart
