"So, when we ask what can be learned from the recent struggles in Sudan, we are brought full circle to a host of durable and effective strategies that make up the nucleus of movement-building, most of which are present more than ever in the uprisings across the US. This includes an emphasis on the provision of services to the people, the importance of building and sustaining truly broad based coalitions, with participation from every sector of society."

Ann Marie Utratel presented DisCO as part of the Radical Practice module at the Royal College of Art.

"DisCO is the result of many years working in a small translation collective and hacking our way through a new way to make visible the invisible, and also to share information freely and to understand the value of all of the work that we do, including the work that is not normally recognized." 💜 👇 ✨

I've released version 2.0.0 of my RSS to ActivityPub converter! This now provides functionality I'd hacked in to rss.friend.camp - it requires OAuth 2.0 authorization for someone to create a new AP account for an RSS feed.

I used to run this service "in the open" but was overwhelmed by spammers. Now the admin of a Mastodon (or Pleroma or any federated server that is an OAuth 2 provider) can provide this converter as a service solely to members of their instance.
