What the fuck, a single bitcoin transaction uses like a 2 megawatt-hours? You could run an entire high speed train for like 100km with that amount of energy.

Please read and - if you wish - sign.

@dcht00 Hi! Thanks for the feedback we'll work to fix it. Meanwhile you can read it here: disco.coop/manifesto/

Hey @disco_coop I wanted to read your manifesto but your website doesn't work in my Kobo Reader experimental browser. That probably means it's not very accessible in general.

I've found another reason, besides the global recession, why I feel discouraged to find a new 'career.'

I've noticed this trend of people becoming their work. Where every part of your life, your online and offline identity revolves around your job. You no longer just work - you're 'living a passion', and 'growing a brand'. It feels like the human being behind the job disappears. As if, in order to be successful, you need to commodify every aspect of your life.

Idk is this relatable in any way?

@Gina Of course - this is Marx's alienation in late capitalism. Chin up and keep struggling → en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marx%27s

Who's on IRC/Freenode or Matrix? Interested in - coliving hackerspaces? →→ If there is a confinemenet, would you prefer to be stuck with a bunch of hackers in a hackerspace? →→ Come discuss this in on Freenode.

Long shot, but, if you piked up some tiny bug/nymph at your place, put it under a microscope and took photos of it, then wanted an ID of it, how would you do it?

📄 Kalí Tal, The Unbearable Whiteness of Being: African American Critical Theory and Cyberculture, 1996 gseweb.gse.buffalo.edu/fas/bro

“In cyberspace, it is finally possible to completely and utterly disappear people of color. I have long suspected that the much vaunted ‘freedom’ to shed the ‘limiting’ markers of race and gender on the Internet is illusory, and that in fact it masks a more disturbing phenomenon—the whitinizing of cyberspace. The invisibility of people of color on the Net has allowed white-controlled and white-read publications like WIRED to simply elide questions of race.

The irony of this invisibility is that African American critical theory provides very sophisticated tools for the analysis of cyberculture, since African American critics have been discussing the problem of multiple identities, fragmented personae, and liminality for over a hundred years.”
