Oakland teachers strike
As a teacher in a major US city who lived with my wife and kids in a 7x9 foot coffin-studio, and then in the trunk of a Mazda Tribute for years, eating peanut butter out of a jar because my salary barely covered that studio, I think we need this to go national. Many of these teachers are also living in cars or literal closets.
Humans deserve not just 'employment' but dignity.
Deny neofeudal slavemasters your labor.
The solidbase app now got some style and an introductory text what it is all about:
There are a lot of related concepts that not everyone in the fediverse space is very familiar with, eg CAP theorem (AP is very AP, in that sense).
I am thinking of doing little writeup explainers for the uninitiated alongside the demos of some of these ideas, even when there are no demos to show for them. Is this something people would find valuable?
Terrific interview with @firstname.lastname@example.org by @email@example.com examining declining incomes for writers and how we should start taking the interests of authors seriously. Great work @firstname.lastname@example.org https://authorsinterest.org/2019/02/21/cory-doctorow-on-declining-writer-incomes-breaking-amazons-dominance-and-getting-a-bigger-share-for-authors/
@emi is quoted in this piece about cooperatives and other forms of sharing economy.
Blockchain: decentralisation centralised on my coin.
Hint: the core of decentralisation isn’t about having a billion copies of the same database. It’s about a billion people each having their own, unique database.
PS. In a truly decentralised system, no one makes a billion dollars. *watches all the right libertarians make for the door*
PPS. A venture capitalist would never invest in a truly decentralised system. Why? See PS, above.
♲ @LibertyPaulM@linuxrocks.online: itch.io needs more love from gamers. Including, it pains me to say, the linux gaming community.
itch.io does everything linux gamers want. A quality open source client, treats devs and players with respect and generally acts as a moral company should. Still it gets ignored.
Also, this thread shows they have the right business attitude. No need to go all out with "we're gonna compete with Steam and be a big boy killer". That way makes failure inevitable
In other words, if this happened and we put it in the ActivityStreams core context, nobody could surprise you by rebinding "Note" to something else. I'm not saying we should do this, but it's something to consider and discuss for the future.
I'm working on the code for this in the canonical json-ld implementation (the js one) and it's turned out to be barely any lines of code at all: https://github.com/digitalbazaar/jsonld.js/compare/sealed-contexts
This is a growing movement, with children from over thirty towns across the #UK participating and the union of headteachers supporting it. Every day we hear more reports about climate and ecology -related disasters, the origins of which are man-made, the consequences of criminal responsibility on the part of countless so-called ‘grown-ups’. Young people are standing up and saying enough is #enough.
@baldur if Google’s business model wasn’t about selling ads then Chrome would have integrated an ad blocker into Chrome a long time ago, for security reasons.

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
