MeansTV has just been killing it lately.

If you haven't heard of them, they're a worker co-op trying to start a leftist media platform. I believe it was started by the team behind some of Bernie's 2016 campaign marketing as well as AOC's campaign.

Great team of people doing some great work!

Anybody know a FOSS, non-evil alternative to Google's captcha service?

Ideally one that also doesn't force users into a brief life of indentured AI servitude to produce free labor for some third party...

Watching Jonah Hill's "mid90s"; there is something so satisfying about seeing the mythos of your childhood so eloquently captured on screen.

It's probably just a glimpse of my slow descent into old age, boomer-style, though 😟

Still, I look forward to whatever else Jonah Hill has to offer.

Anybody have any recommendations for accessible (specifically fully-captioned) training resources for becoming a linux sysadmin?

A coworker who is deaf is interested in learning more, and we're having trouble finding professional, comprehensive resources for him.

Other things I enjoy: philosophy, electronic music, functional programming, biking.

How can I, a public university employee at the bottom of the totem pole, start working today to try and end the University's dependence (read: wholly ensnared state) on proprietary, corporate owned/backed software?

Anybody know of any orgs that work on this, or have any experience fighting this kind of thing?

It makes for a very depressing state of affairs, being so reliant on these capitalist structures.

Fun fact: despite existing almost as long as the web, cookies are not a requirement to view article based sites.

"McCartney" is a masterpiece. Paul writing and performing the entire thing, and just killing it throughout!

Imo solidifies him as being on a level of his own.

As a lifelong Beatles fan(atic) who has mostly ignored their subsequent solo careers until recently, lemme just say: Damn, have I been missing out.

"This was a group of so-called alt-right protesters who decided that a socialist bookshop, which stocks radical literature and working-class history titles and provides stalls for national trade union conferences, was a legitimate target for violence."

If this kind of shit doesn't wake up people, then nothing will. Fascists attacking books is the last step before fascists attacking people.
