Snagged a pi 4 2GB. Going to migrate my home hosting efforts to the pi4. If this works out like I'm expecting it to, this will be a long term solution.

"Layers of smoke in the atmosphere
Have made the earth too hot to bear
The Earth might be a desert soon
America has left the Moon"

In the past weeks, I ordered quite a few things online. Almost all shops asked for my telephone number, for most of them, entering a number was mandatory.

I used a fake number for all of them. Guess what? I still got all of my items. And if there were any problems (“sorry, there was an error in the data, so we can only send you one shirt, not the two shirts you ordered“), I got notified via email.

Anyone of you in online retail? Then, please don't ask for my number if you don't need it. :)

The Matrix is unrealistic because it's a movie where a black man and a woman tell a straight white man that everything he knows is wrong, and he just accepts that.

'Genius' is very hard to define, but certainly reached it several times in his life.

We must de-grow now

The data shows there is no way to stay below even 2° (see sources in second part).
We have been missing every target catastrophically. And physical reality limits what we can do now.

But there is one obvious way to avoid catastrophe, drastically de-grow.

We are being sold false hope to keep the profits flowing.

Globally we must use significantly LESS total energy 2030 even as China's & India's economies of then ~3 billion are set to almost double.

This will not happen. Our current system cannot avoiding climate catastrophe.

It gets worse.

Just in regards to power-generation, the area we are doing "best" at:
By 2030 we must double our current solar and wind power and we must have more exponential growth from there.

Instead renewable growth is stalling (bit.ly/Stallout)

Today is the 200th anniversary of the #Peterloo massacre. On 16th August 1819, 60,000 people gathered peacefully in St. Peter's Field, Manchester to advocate for parliamentary reform when cavalry charged into the crowd, killing 18 people and injuring 400-700. It is one of the defining events in British radical history.

I'm curious: to me it seems the lessons of Jo Freeman's Tyranny of Structurelessness are extremely slow in propagating out into the world. Orgs keep tryna ditch structure and are shocked when it doesn't produce equity.

Do you agree that it is slow? How do you explain this?

it royally pisses me off that automated metro systems actually make sense and have been successfully implemented in small cities and subsections of larger cities while america pisses money down the impossible pipe dream of self driving cars
