Today's highlight is my mum calling me after reading the first few chapters of Chomsky's "Who Rules the World" (my gift to her last Christmas) and telling me "you know what, I am beginning to understand those radicalized muslims".

Welcome to the real world mum :)

So the right wing coalition won the elections and among them, the xenophobic and anti-european Lega got the biggest share of votes. Turns out 30 years of school funding cuts are finally paying off...

The internet was not created so a Facebook, google, amazon, or centralized capitalist monopoly could dominate it. This is the antithesis of its formation. Even the Pareto principle of 20% of the users controlling 80% of the means of information dissemination would be better than our current situation 0.*1% control. Self host, regain control, reclaim the means

Geek question: website/server monitor 

I like to have an *external* service that simply checks if my websites are online.

I found Uptime Robot (uptimerobot.com/), but it looks overkill and smells commercial. Does someone know a nice sympathetic similar service, without the commercial smell?

Installed patchwork today to get onto - "a decent(ralised) secure gossip platform" - and it's looking very decent.

(built on electronjs, hmmm I have to check that out too!)
