I wrote a long post about the 'return to normal' and why I think acts of mourning and processing might counter a second wave: queeranarchism.tumblr.com/post

Does anyone know where I can find free audio book versions of Black radical thinkers and writers?

One of my friends, although reading doesn't come easy for him, listens to a lot of podcasts.

Please boost.

I'm a reasonable leftist. I don't think anyone has to get guillotined -- they can just choose to give up their ownership of the means of production and housing instead! :blobowo: :black_bloc_blob:

The most ecological technology is one you use for a long time. This is especially true of computing technology, where the embodied energy is several magnitudes higher than the energy cost of using it.

> My most successful open source projects have adopted the policy that 1 accepted patch gives you commit rights to the main repository. I've found that the most unlikely people often become key contributors. Much better than designating people as members of a "core team". Instead to breath life into an opensource project you need patches.

That's the insight and the model of the C4 and the ZeroMQ application of it. Merge eagerly, merge optimistically. Fix any subjective issues in a new merge rather than getting bogged down in bikeshedding. Contributions more than welcome, and patches speak louder than words. A project lives and dies by the influx of contributions and contributors.

Annotated version of the C4:

More than 10,000 arrested in the US nationwide for rebelling against police by state and local governments. And federal government putting extreme resources into going after more. Remember this as people scream that we need the police to protect us from murderers— that's not where police put their effort anyhow. How to deal with this repression?

First of all you're supposed to be *gifted* these items, and secondly the demand for these is so high that poachers are damaging sacred sites and uprooting entire plants to feed consumption. If you buy sage or Palo Santo from a shop, it was probably illegally taken from tribal land

Free accessibility tips from my wife, a professional UX designer who does a lot of accessibility work:

1. Keep your image descriptions short, simple, and descriptive. Try to limit it to a single tweet-length.

2. Don’t do both alt-text AND a visible image description. This will result in screenreaders reading your caption twice.

3. Use camel case in your hashtags.
