Our #oceans broke heat records in 2018 and the consequences are catastrophic

The last five years were the five hottest on record. The numbers are huge: in 2018 the extra ocean heat compared to a 1981-2010 baseline amounted to 196,700,000,000,000,000,000,000 joules. The current rate of #oceanWarming is equivalent to five Hiroshima-size atomic bombs exploding every second.

@Ashpex @dansup I don't actually have an Instagram, so, I'd never have seen this if I were actually looking for it.

I like the idea that the Fediverse can engage in political discussions while avoiding the rage inducing current affairs side of politics that fuels the birbsite

I’ll try to hunt down the Graeber piece and post some Quotes

I generally don’t get excited about voting.

But this episode about Ireland’s electoral system was genuinely interesting.

It reminded me of a Graeber essay on the joy of politics.

For the past several months, I've been sending american-flag-belt-coworker almost-weekly network messages through an app he logs into that I have full admin on. The message pops up in the bottom corner of your desktop, and gives no appearance of having anything to do with the app it's coming from.

For the first few months, he only received this message, over and over:

This is just bloody awesome, and I love the physical seed library they have made: connectedseeds.org/visit

“The Connected Seeds Library lives at Spitalfields City Farm in east London. A seed library works a bit like a regular book lending library. In order to borrow seeds from the library you will need to become a member. Members can take seeds home to grow, and are encouraged to return some of the seeds to the library at the end of the season, in order to maintain the stock of available seeds.”

Contracting/Freelancing/Working from home is not a sustainable cultural and societal model. We need nationalized transportation with well regulated disabled accessibility and worker owned spaces of production, socialization and creativity. Transforming us into nameless faceless dehumanized tools of corporate production in unaffordable tiny boxes will not end well.

I went ahead and also added a page with details about Mastodon's #ActivityPub implementation:

Let me know what you think.

Does your school give the data of your children to a random cloud provider in another country? Or does it what the capital of Switzerland does for its 35.000 students, keeping their data safe and secure in their own #nextcloud?

I wrote up the API I'm thinking about for my #ActivityPub #PHP library! If you're interested in building federated PHP applications, I'd really appreciate if you check it out:

github.com/pterotype-project/a

I opened an issue where people can give feedback and discuss the API so that we can make sure it will meet the needs of Fediverse developers. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please contribute to the discussion:

I wish that images were scaled down from remote resources on the #fediverse. Sending the whole actual image isn't friendly on clients. Being able to report a max size or max dimension for a resource / type could be cool.

social.coop

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
