Is #SucculentSunday a thing? Because I saw these lovelies while we were on holiday in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago
I’m reading Half-Earth Socialism at the moment. An eco-socialist take that goes hard in on rewilding, veganism, renewables, and, intriguingly, global central planning. ("GosplanT" :D)
It’s good stuff.
Plus I think all Verso books should come bundled with a playable online simulation game like this one does…
EU folks, the latest @EU_Commission proposal for scanning private communications and undermining end-to-end encryption is an extreme threat to privacy.
It threatens the right to meaningful encryption and would force your communications to be subject to scanning and classification by AI outside of your control. Truly dystopian shit.
This won't become law without the EU parliament's assent, so please follow this closely and speak up. See EDRI's analysis here:
Nice sunset on the osprey cam right now
Hello toot friends, I bring #antiLawn memes.
I'm hoping to radicalise you all against the boring monoculture lawn and turn you into biodiversity defenders.
The Wobblies film has been given a new release for Mayday.

Unfortunately these breakages will become more common when the Fediverse evolves the way it does now i.e. with ad-hoc interoperability (everyone extends on the standards in their own way) and post-facto interoperability (dominant/popular apps make changes and the rest must follow).
There should be more focus on 'substrate formation', the people, collab and processes that create common ground. A topic that has my interest as part of #SocialCoding Foundations.
🥳 lumbung.space is online 🥳
We've been working with ruangrupa & friends for a while now and we're super proud to see the project launched!
Here's an excerpt from the public post:
The aim of lumbung.space is to create a digital infrastructure that is maintained by the lumbung network without being dependent upon exploitative digital infrastructures. The pandemic and the ensuing digitization of many aspects of creative practice, offered an extra reason to focus on networked media practices. lumbung.space, therefore, is an urgent experiment that tries out what an artist-run digital space could be like.
lumbung.space was conceptualized and developed together with @rra an artist and doctoral candidate in Interaction Design at Malmö University and with @autonomic. Their work for lumbung.space is part of the @coopcloud initiative, which allows other collectives to set up similar infrastructures.
Nitter and Miniflux combo on YunoHost still going well for [[reading tweets without being on Twitter]].
I use it to keep up with what’s going on with organisations local to me, who are still on legacy social media platforms.
Could still do with something that works well for RSSifying Facebook pages/groups.
