This is a high bar for how to run an open service. I like it!

"""

I believe that if we enable contributions to services rather than just the software, we reap the advantages of true open source. That means enabling users to make a change to a running service and experience that change themselves.

You still with me?

Yes, that means opening a pull request against a running service and experiencing that change before it's merged.
[ . . . ] Rapid deployment of changes to services is a powerful capability that's highly sought after. For example, GitHub deploys changes before they're merged. [ . . . ]

Combining SaaS and not just #UserOps but #UserDevOps? Can it be done? It's a very cool idea with important effects.

Greetings, everyone! 🌱
OpenSourceSeeds is committed to re-establishing seed as a common good for all. We do this by providing new varieties with an open-source licence. This is an easy way to legally protect seed from patents and other forms of privatization.

We'd love to get in contact with anyone interested in open source, commons, seeds, organic agriculture and agrobiodiversity. See you soon! 🥦

"Forest fires raging in South Africa’s Table Mountain National Park have reached the University of Cape Town (UCT), and gutted the reading room of its main library, which houses irreplaceable documents and records from the country’s past."

"The library complex houses UCT’s Special Collections, which hold irreplaceable artefacts, including annotated watercolours of plants and animals dated from 1881, painted by Indigenous inhabitants of the Cape."

@resist1984 @clacke @dachary

Of all code forges #gitea is most likely to be the first that implements native #forgefed support. The team members are excited about it.

See on Gitea where @cj elaborated the work that is needed: github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issu

And this mention on #codeberg where @6543 is a Gitea team member: codeberg.org/Codeberg/Communit

@polychrome @feld For all its apparent faults and broken leadership, that's exactly the mind set that the GNU project and the FSF set out to fight all these years ago. And here we are, back in the same old mess. In the company that owns Red Hat, no less.

@feld the employment contract also stipulates that they own anything and everything you design or think up away from the office in your personal time.

Towards a foraging ethic 

This is the first of a little experiment to grow ramps from seeds placed in a wine cap mushroom mycellium bomb. The point of this is to say that taking wild ramps is wildly unethical. They take 7 years to go from being a seed to making seeds. I think the future of foraging is rewilding and stewardship. Cultivating wild/native species in your garden, on your lawn, etc. Not ripping them from their habitat and selling at the farmers market.

@marie_joseph @be KHTML is arguably the thing which broke Microsoft's toxic attempt to control the Web. Ironic that they've now given up on their own rendering engine (Trident - as I suggested they do around 2009), and adopted a KHTML derivative, too.

KHTML, and the community behind it, is a largely unsung hero... and one of the greatest (most influential) FOSS projects ever.

Police abolition, personal opinion 

Real talk though

Yes there will have to be an anti-terrorism armed unit, yes there will be people to manage traffic, yes there will be a organisation to investigate murders and organised crime.

But the question is, under whose control are they? Whose interests do they server? How are they structured?

The current structures of the Police however cannot be reformed to a satisfactory position. They are already under the direct control of the people they serve and it ain't us.

They have always been the private army of the ruling class. They are not under the control of the people. They are not accountable to the people in any meaningful way. They are structurally racist and violent.

Any public safety bodies in the future much look radically different.
