Some agroecology claims:

* Agroecology helps humanity relink itself with nature
* Agroecology rebuts the predatory logic of nature’s use as a commodity and production resource
* Agroecology is not just alternative to green capitalism, but an alternative to capitalism itself
* Agroecology is what allows movements of struggle for land to exist
* Any serious struggle movement must have agroecology as its mode of production

Season 2 of [[node club]] has begun!

This week I took a little look at [[Agroecology]]. Some notes from [[Jayu]] on it helped me to form an initial gut feeling that [[I like agroecology]].

@bob is an experiment in distributed wikis, pulling together individual wikis in to a shared view.

Similar to FedWiki in the 'chorus of voices' approach, rather than decentralised editing of a canonical page.

@lollonero @mike_hales @nicksellen I haven't heard the name before, but found this article and definitely looks worth exploring. . Thanks!

I've not read a lot of Bookchin but I do remember something of the persistent calls to rationality as niggling at me.

@flancian Good shout!

I guess I'm currently not sure what I gain from inline transclusion.

Comes from a position of having not tried it though - not from a position of 'I have and didn't like it'.

e.g. - why pull a link inline rather than clicking to visit? Is it purely a preference of a top-to-bottom document structure versus forward/back navigation?

I should give it a go and get some feels for it

@flancian Ah got you, yeah I did start a list of the patterns in FFA (under each of those sections)

@flancian Like a filter on backlinks to a node maybe? Backlinks by user?

I did start doing that - linking to specific sections of the book. But I fizzled out at some point and just linked to the top-level [[Free, Fair and Alive]] - not sure which is better - wdyt?

@cyberneticpond Welcome! Viable systems and liberation theology, very interesting topics. Interested to learn more on those.

wordle, aw yeah

@vera Precisely! That's a massive value of the agora to me, an easy to find bunch of opinionated writing on a topic by people you already know.

TIL about , one of the world's most popular chess servers, run entirely on free software by a nonprofit, ad-free, supported by donations with a budget of ~$420K/year according to

They've been around since 2010.

As awesome as this is to see, imagine how many free/open nonprofit alternatives to Big Tech platforms would exist if, down to the municipal level, we decided to support them with funding & infrastructure.

Hmm I might rephrase - 'when I'm first deciding whether to learn about X'...

When I’m first learning about some new thing, X, I get a lot more value in someone I know saying "I like X" or "I dislike X" or "I’m interested in X" or "I something X" than a detailed objective description of what X is.

@therealraccoon Thanks! Is this book an example of agroecology to your mind? It's a newish term to me so am building up a mental model.

Anyone got any thoughts/opinions/hottakes on [[agroecology]]?

masto sysadmin q, please boost 

does anyone out there have some prior shareable work setting up a nice prometheus/grafana installation for their server? ideally via docker-compose but that's not the hard part.
