ISSUE 01: Fertile Grounds has arrived! Our first issue contains eight creative pieces and a series of kaoani inspired animated GIFs. You can read it on the World Wide Web here >> one.compost.digital/

Bookmarked: COMPOST one.compost.digital/ Even as existing digital infrastructure fails to embolden truth or bring people together, we are hopeful. In Fertile Grounds we explore how our decaying web can help new networks flourish.

This debut issue of COMPOST magazine features writing and art about technologies, protocols, and communities that enable authentic and trustful connections.

So libgen.is is on IPFS, but is it on FileCoin? I know IPFS sits on top of FileCoin, but how would one go about answering this question with an example?

Somewhere between December and February this TokenizedTweets (puts tweets on the blockchain?) added a take-down request form:

tokenizedtweets.com/takedown-r

I'm kind of a newb when it comes to the block chain data structure, but isn't removing ledger entries impossible?

This also begs the question of how one would even look at any of these tweets that have been "tokenized".

@sam_hames @betsybookworm not sure if communicating here about twarc2 will work -- but maybe for short updates?

I just pushed up some changes so that all of the client functionality is available via a twarc2 command, e.g.

twarc2 search-recent auspol > tweets.jsonl

Run twarc2 for the help :-)

what's your favorite song about the depressing inevitability of mankind's destruction via climate change? mine is Dear Miami by Róisín Murphy youtube.com/watch?v=5inPre_Eqx

work, isolation 

I've been struggling a bit at work for the past few months feeling like my contributions as a technologist are no longer needed/wanted, & even that what I do as a professional is a source of problems. I'm not sure what to do with this other than write it down, slow down, and try to find understanding.

I'm upping my monthly social.coop contribution a bit to help support the new meet.coop (BigBlueButton) collaboration.

I kinda wish parts of pinboard were open source so people could help out here and there, kinda like how @duckduckgo make pieces available. I sent Maciej an email asking and he sent back a thoughtful message about why he hasn't been focused on it. Basically he is already using significant pieces of open source tech, and there are also anti-spam / anti-abuse measures in the code that he would rather not have public.

I opted-in to paying pinboard.in $22/year instead of $0/year even though I didn't need to as an old-timer. It's good to support the services you use regularly, and I use pinboard every day. Plus, Maciej has a pretty good sense of humor.
