Britpol 

In the 2017 election in Hartlepool Labour got over 50% of the vote, when Corbyn was leader. Yesterday only 28%.

Obviously many other factors here. Including the government likely pulling two stunts they know would appeal to voters (sending gunboats to sea, and cutting foreign aid).

People need a story to be part of, and the myth of a brave, valiant, independent Britain taking care of it's own kind is something people can hold onto.

Anti-capitalism needs a much more compelling story.

Social.Coop server maintenance / downtime this weekend 

Social.coop and wiki.social.coop will be down for an overdue system upgrade this Saturday evening. Downtime will start around 9pm EDT. if all goes well, it will last no more than 30-40 minutes.

If you have any questions or want updates if something goes wrong and it takes longer to restore service, this is as good a time as any to remind folks about our Element chatroom at app.element.io/#/room/#SocialC

Oh, I just realised NewPipe isn't just for YouTube, also has SoundCloud, media.ccc.de, framatube (peertube?), And Bandcamp. Nice!

I somehow feel like I should have known that...

Land purchases relating to slavery derived wealth. 

TIL that at least 1/3 of the land in the West Highlands and Islands 'was sold into the hands of people directly or indirectly enriched by slavery.'

This was during the period 1726 and 1939, though predominantly 1790 to 1855, the main period of the Highland Clearances according to Prof Eric Richards.

A lot of really interesting information in this report [PDF].

I'm trying to make sense of what my model of personal economy is. Which needs I want to fulfil, material and non-material, and the sources they come from. Acknowledging different modes of value exchange (gift, commons, market, state), and also privileges I have.

I wonder if anybody else here has done this or thought about it and has some ideas for how to model it or represent it visually?

I'm starting by sketching some ideas...

Anyone has experience of using a citizen participation platform in their municipality / organization? (e.g. Decidim, Consul, Your Priorities etc)

What's the good and the bad?

My local hammock/swimming spot.

Despite all the talk about enjoying the wellbeing benefits of nature, wild swimming, and cold water, hardly anybody participating, even though it's just right there! (plenty of people walking past that spot, it's not secret/hidden).

can you guys recommend me blogs and podcasts on neurodivergence, preferably by neurodivergent people? specially on autism and adhd :) i need more fuel to feed my little current obsession :blob_spin:

Social.Coop sysadmin note 

Just to err on the side of caution and privacy, social.coop now sets a header opting out of Google's new FLoC tracking.

For more information on FLoC, see here: eff.org/deeplinks/2021/03/goog

Not that this is an official statement of any kind but i also recommend not using Chrome/Chromium browsers if you have any choice in the matter.

I drew some flowers! 🌷🌻🌹

As I wander around the city, I particularly like looking at the little flowers that grow in the toughest places, like poking out a small crack in a stone wall. Resilient and beautiful!

I allowed creative freedom whilst drawing though, any likeness to real flowers is co-incidental...

Everyone who works with computers intently are really confused as to why other people want to put computers in everything

"Broad coalitions are problematic in that groups are brought together in the name of noble ideals, but shared values and relationships between them are not concrete enough to flesh out the coalition's goals" said scott crow, sounds wise, I thought.

(From Black Flags and Windmills)

In this "culture war" regarding FSF/RMS most of the commentary I see about the bad things done/said.

I wonder about borrowing a model from the relationship context: the cycle of harmony -> disharmony -> repair.

The most important bit isn't the disharmony, that is inevitable at some point, but the repair.

And this is where I think FSF/RMS really went wrong.

When people bring up a huge range of issues over a long period of time it deserves some serious reflection, healing, and change.

My little babies! Mostly broad beans. And 2 from the neighbour which apparently are courgettes, but they don't look like courgettes to me, hmm.

I present you: mosey culture (as opposed to hustle culture)

Our goals are out there and we work toward them, but we take our time.

"Someday I want to achieve my goal, but for now check out this pretty flower I have 🌻 . I'm gonna stop and enjoy it before I mosey on to my next task."

@freakazoid That's why I think we need a new term. I'm using "cooperative technology": cooperativetechnology.codeberg
