I havent seen too many gliders (basically small planes without engines) in solarpunk stuff (although its very possible i just missed it)
On good days when the conditions are right you can travel 100km+. You just need to get into the air to start either by tow or winch. And the rest of the journey is riding thermals and mountain winds, all of which is ultimately solar powered.
I just think theyre cool

This summer, I'm gonna be re-releasing a 4-part radio documentary series on anarchism via The Rebel Beat podcast feed, "Freedom on the Air". Originally produced for CKUT 90.3FM in Montreal back in 2004, this in-depth audio documentary on anarchist history, theory and practice has been unavailable for years... until now! Hope you enjoy Part 1: Anarchy 101. Part 2 coming next week. https://anchor.fm/rebelbeatradio/episodes/Freedom-on-the-Air--Part-1-Anarchy-101-e156va9
Hey who knows stuff about advertising?
If I want to start a business and get a product in front of a relevant (IT-people centric) audience, do I have to give money to Google and Facebook?
So far, most of the places I'd think to advertise outsource ad placement to google/doubleclick. DuckDuckGo does their ads through Microsoft.
I swear, someone really needs to write a guide or short e-book on "how to do ethical and effective advertising online which respects your customers"
I mean, as a consumer there's a lot you can do to prevent tracking, invasive advertising etc, but what does doing it the "right" way look like for a small business or microbusiness?
Does nobody believe in productive businesses anymore, just endless funnel marketing of online courses
Well, there are three #buzzwords from my three unofficial enemy images in the title, so I almost have to share it. No, seriously, what bothers me about #Apple, #Telegram and #Chrome is their #marketing as a secure and apparently best solution. It's almost presumptuous, and this example in particular shows that they, like everyone else, only boil water. Apart from that, #security is always a multi-layered #system and not a single #product.

We are running our own server, using #Matrix, #Nextcloud and #Peertube with @milan's help.
The server is gone. We have organized a replacement-server and @milan is currently setting it up. You can donate and help us with the costs:

8 years ago, my digital life was almost entirely stored in Google data centers.
Today, I self-host a handful of services on a Raspberry Pi on my LAN and use privacy-friendly services. Small tech feels good.
I wrote a few words about the moving process 👀
cc @aral: I'm a big fan of your work. I donated to the Small Tech foundation recently, and you + Laura are an inspiration in this space. Keep up the great work!
Things I like about Object Oriented Programming:
* you can point at an unknown chunk of data someone gave you and find out what kind of thing it is, because it carries its type/class signature with it
* you can be reasonably sure that a thing of type/class Foo really is a Foo and obeys some definition of Foo-ness, because nobody can make or alter a Foo except Foo's code
* you get places to put things, and those places have names, which is a much bigger part of programming than it seems
