Anybody know any wiki software that can federate besides FedWiki?
(which is brilliant but bewilders many people. I'm asking about something that offers topic and sub-topic navigation like a typical wiki, but where an instance created by one community can federate with instances created by other communities.
Related to my last boost, this page could be a good place to start for people wanting to help Oregon wildfire victims:
Last boost for reference:
Hey, folks... this is a link to a document containing the lowest funded GoFundMe requests from Southern Oregon fire victims who’ve lost everything.
Doing ASICs one grows patience. Test chips blogged on earlier have arrived.
Former Facebook data scientist Sophie Zhang on the massive amount of "inauthentic activity" used for political purposes on the platform.
"No one is forced to use Facebook"
There's obviously useful functionality there, but we need to separate and implement those useful functions somewhere else that isn't built on surveillance tech. Somewhere else that doesn't let distant (or nearby) creeps and bozos have instant access to all of us at any time.
"No one is forced to use Facebook"
I hear that often, but I know of many people who had to create accounts and start to use Facebook for things like classes, community participation, and family communication. It's assumed you have it, and we don't make affordances for those who don't.
Perhaps we're not forced with violence or laws, but we are strongly coercing each other to use it. I never created an account for various reasons, and I have lost touch with people as a result.
A very nice post by Ken Shirriff on the first FPGA.
"The FPGA was invented by Ross Freeman who co-founded Xilinx in 1984 and introduced the first FPGA, the XC2064. [...] I reverse-engineered Xilinx's XC2064, and in this blog post I explain its internal circuitry (above) and how a "bitstream" programs it.""
Things are shit.
Also, there might be life on Venus.
i'm retiring an older collaborative project that never quite got off the ground... BUT in doing so we're releasing the tiles we drew for it into the creative commons. 281 free, hand-drawn isometric tiles, to use in your projects:
I don't mean to bash on any of these FOSS efforts. It's amazing what I can take for granted on a desktop these days. Onwards and upwards etc.!
It's a little weird that my web browser has a better UI/UX for playing downloaded videos than the default video player application of my desktop...
Oh... well, this explains part of it:
(Maybe that one could've stayed in my "screaming-into-the-void.org" file.)
TFW (griping and uspol)
TFW you start your pot of coffee that you prepared the night before only to return a few minutes later to a fresh pot of hot water (I seemed to have forgotten something), the air quality in your home is unhealthy due to wildfires, your president, with the aid of his party, Fox News, and social media, is actively attempting to undermine the, admittedly already corrupt, democratic process in your country, and there is a pandemic.
WIAT THIS MEME HAD A FULL STORY?????????????
