take me down to the sunbeam city
where the grass is green
and the.. people live in harmony with their local ecosystems instead of destroying the planet for short-term gains

Damn.

I'm not much of a "joiner", but if the philosophy described here by @garbados had a name, I might etch it into my sword:

"They say that crowns are reserved for kings. That jewels are the realm for those who deserve them.
And in the blink of an eye,
in the changing of the wind, fortunes change.

Through every shipwreck comes the chance to begin again. To rebuild anew atop the mistakes of the past. Out of death comes life.

We come to you, with the soul of a proud knight, and the trash filled mind of a laser bathed socialite.

Let us begin the story now."

This is a living room concept by Alex Harris. I love these types of isometric views. There's an old-school computer on the desk and that's especially endearing

@tindall @enkiv2 If we are to change that we must understand that this isn’t a technology/technique problem but a socioeconomic one. Unless we create alternatives to this business model, we are not going to affect meaningful change. As long as all investment (VC, etc.) goes into Surveillance Capitalism, we are going to get yet more of it. So let’s (a) acknowledge the actual problem (b) regulate the abusers (c) fund & create ethical alternatives from/for the commons.

@tindall @enkiv2 It is quite mindblowing to me to see a criticism of the Web that entirely ignores the socioeconomic reasons for its being the way it is. The Web isn’t broken “because JavaScript”, mainstream technology, including the Web is broken because Surveillance Capitalism doesn’t build tools for people, it builds tools to farm people. All that bloat is the farming mechanisms: tracking you, profiling you, addicting you and placating you.

Retoot this if you are #solarpunk so we can all follow each other. :3

Went to a themed event in my 'hood today. A lot of people excited about reducing waste and whatnot. It was quite inspiring.

Still it seems almost no one had a clue as to the actual causes of the problems we face in terms of waste and environmental destruction today. I haven't heard anyone talk about possibility for systemic change regarding production chains, or even sustainability for that matter.

Basically mostly "let's vote with our wallet" kinda thing.
