I have to say, the Nautilus file manager (part of GNOME desktop for us Linux heads) has become so good that I actually now often use it instead of the command line. Batch file rename, instant search across subdirectories, etc. It's pretty damn slick.

@aral You can't venture-capital your way out of a problem you venture-capitalled your way into in the first place.

Just finished "Flying Too Close to the Sun" (quick read since it's an art book) -- traces threads of classical (Greco-Roman) myths in art. It's a lovely coffee table book, though I can't wait for publishers like Phaidon to expand their definition of "art" a bit more. Full review:

Beautiful (short) article about the connection between linen and microbiology, based on an exhibit on the subject in Northern Ireland.

Part of the process of making linen typically involves employing the action of microorganisms, which humans have done for thousands of years -- as with microbiology products like beer and cheese.

I love the use of art to show & celebrate the connections between the visible and the invisible.

Latest review: "The Doomsday Machine: Confessions of a Nuclear War Planner" by Daniel Ellsberg.

A powerful book that shows how humanity has slipped into accepting the continued existence of a machine for global annihilation -- this absolute evil created by ordinary people -- why we must dismantle that machine, and how we can do it. Full review:

Hi folks! My employer, the Freedom of the Press Foundation, looking for an Associate Site Reliability Engineer, which is a fancy-ish way to say "keep websites running and automate all the things" :)

Great role if you're looking to start a career in infrastructure work with mission focus. Questions? DM! :)

The Nelson Mandela Foundation has uploaded one of his written diaries to Wikimedia Commons! 87 pages of handwritten notes :) #wikimania2018

Loading common web pages without ad/tracking blocking (including browser-level tracking protection) and watching the network tab is honestly a surreal experience. Like observing a malignant force that wants to consume you, the consumer.

Just finished John Restakis' "Humanizing the Economy" (2010), an introduction to co-operative economics with examples from around the world.

Beyond the oft-cited examples of Emilia Romagna's co-ops and Mondragon in Spain, it also looks at sex worker collectives in India, the recovered factory movement in Argentina, the Japanese consumer co-ops, and more.

A great wayfinder; would have benefited from more systematic presentation of the data.

Confused about how to use the Fediverse. Viewing someone's post on a different server I see:

> You can follow them or interact with them if you have an account anywhere in the fediverse

But there's no reply options or actions to take. I'm not seeing any way to interact even though I *do* have an account here.

If I search for the post here, I can interact, but there's no way to interact starting from viewing the other domain?

New review: The Folio Anthology (2016), the last book edited by the late Brian W. Aldiss.

As with all Folio books, a lovely and expensive physical object; among the (mostly ~golden age) stories are some gems of the genre. 3.5 of 5 stars, rounded up to 4 for the physical quality. Full review:

Erik Moeller boosted is looking for volunteers for its admin ops team:

I think it will be an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other co-op members as well as learn how platform cooperatives work at a very practical level. See you there?

Hello everyone, I just made my account.
I'm a 29yo queer guy from France. I am a digital artist and an electronic music composer. I love video games, especially Metroid series and metroidvanias in general. I like to learn languages and I'm struggling hard with Esperanto xD
Also, I write things sometimes. Oh and I have big social anxiety. But I'm fixing it
