As you might have noticed, PeerTube has a plugin for chatting during livestreams (screenshot below). It's really nice!

If you do livestreaming on PeerTube, ask your server admin if the plugin can be added, it makes livestreams a lot more fun. There is more info about the plugin at github.com/JohnXLivingston/pee

The creator of the plugin is @John_Livingston and they have a roadmap of more features they want to add to the plugin. You can help make this happen by donating to Livingston's LiberaPay account at liberapay.com/JohnLivingston

Finally getting back to my Tympan software installation.

If have time and patience for more questions, I would be grateful.

If not, I will stumble through...

First question: github.com/Tympan/Docs/wiki/Ge

They suggest " where the Arduino IDE looks for libraries. For example C:\Users\HGeithner\Documents\Arduino\libraries\Tympan_Library"

I have no C:\Users - looks like a Windows thing.

Does it matter? Where do you put them? (I'm running Ubuntu...)

Thank goodness we elected this guy 

Good to know that the Dem administration is on the same page as all those Repub judges. Truly, we live in the best of all possible worlds.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

opression, pay gaps, creative accounting? 

Reporting on pay gaps while excluding your lowest paid workers from the calculation on a technicality seems disingenuous at best and downright fraudulent at worst.

Gods above and below, yes please, this.

I can't count the number of times a popup has intercepted what I was in the middle of typing, which took my keystrokes as pressing buttons I never got to look at, resulting in some action that I don't even know and causing something to happen which caused me to lose what I was typing.

António Guterres, to new uni graduates: “You hold the cards. Your talent is in demand from multinational companies and big financial institutions. You will have plenty of opportunities to choose from. My message to you is simple: don’t work for climate wreckers. Use your talents to drive us towards a renewable future.”

It’s patently absurd to expect independent developers who develop free software on free/open platforms to undertake the time and expense of supporting proprietary platforms they do not themselves use.

I propose the following strategy: if you’re on Linux, say, support Linux in your apps and be open to Win/macOS folks forking the app if they wish.

But also release it under a license like AGPL so they can’t just profit off of your work without giving back (e.g., by selling it on those platforms).

If you're wondering about the status of the project, it hasn't gone anywhere!

Friends, an easy step toward democratization of the economy is moving your money to a credit union. So let's say July 14th is Fediverse Move your Money Day!

In Japan this has been an important part of the fossil fuels divestment campaign by 350.org. When you choose a credit union, ask them about their investments (you'll probably be the first one to ask).

Please boost

Much of DisCO's approach to Community Rhythms, Conflict Resolution, Decision-Making and Mutual Support was inspired and adapted from this wonderful course by our friends at The Hum (and our folks at @guerrillamediacollective can confirm!). We sincerely recommend it! 💜✨

we can only imagine information as a disjointed sea of platforms where the rule is having every shred of information weaponized against us in some way. I don't think we should treat scientific communication as a separate problem from "misinformation," info monopolies, etc.

App-based ride service in the US 

Scheduled a ride to the airport with Lyft. Got a message 20 minutes before the 10-minute pickup window that the ride had been accepted. No more feedback until 5 minutes into the window the scheduled ride just disappeared from the app with no notification at all, or even any evidence that a ride had ever been scheduled except for the fact that Lyft is now spamming me with ads for their rental car service. My wife ended up giving me a ride.

I've been hearing lots of similar stories about last minute (and after the last minute) cancellations from Uber as well. I guess app-based ride services just aren't a thing anymore. I guess I'll just hail a cab to get home.

“.01% of bitcoin holders hold 27% of all bitcoin! That’s 100x the wealth concentration of the regular economy.”

Next time someone tells you cryptocurrencies and blockchain are about decentralisation, laugh in their faces. Loudly. While pointing at them.

So we ended up with chickpea miso with some soy sauce and egg drops and fresh ginger and foraged ramps, pheasant back mushrooms, and nettles. It was delicious!
