I set up a streaming radio thing!

I put a subset of my music on a server, and set it up to stream a playlist. Right now some chilled music I like to code to. May drastically change at other times.

You can listen to it at stream.abovethebeat.com/ (browsers seem to know how to handle it, or use a media play that handles streams, e.g. vlc).

I don't know how many people it can support listening.. too many people and it might crash my little server.

#fluter just published an article [DE] about #kanthaus, the project house I helped set up and live at.


Title reads "Diese WG teilt sich alles – von den Betten bis zur UnterwΓ€sche" (This shared flat shares everything β€” from bedsheets to underwear) Which isn't untrue πŸ˜†

They write: β€žDas Wohnprojekt erinnert auf den ersten Blick an eine Hippiekommune, agiert aber fast wie ein Start-upβ€œ 😹 (Seems like a hippie commune, acts like a start up)

Glad to be here at social.coop with my first Mastodon account!

I'm an activist and community organizer based in Gothenburg, Sweden, and I want to connect with people who are somehow active and interested in the following topics:


so much for my ... Get in touch!

@matslats one of the top points was the lack of cases outside China. That's clearly not true any more. It was worth being concerned about then. I can't take him seriously, or you when you report it so uncritically. Not worth a deep analysis in my view, or a debate.

I probably should have just ignored/muted/blocked/reported but I felt annoyed and wanted to express it.

bandcamp is waiving its revenue share this friday, March 20

if you want to support artists/labels, they will get the full amount of any and all sales on that day

The main benefit on running on free software with self-hosted services: these are not overwhelmed by the amount of people using them.

Yesterday various service providers had large outages. Hosting things yourself means two things:
- you are less affected by other people's behavior
- you decide what's top priority when something breaks

Using free software means:
- you have a community that helps
- you can search error messages in the source code

NEW on coronavirus: many western countries may soon face Italy’s situation

Case numbers since outbreaks began in several countries have tracked a ~33% daily rise. This is as true for UK, France, Germany as Italy; the latter is simply further down the path ft.com/content/a26fbf7e-48f8-1

The Coronavirus pandemic will give us a glimpse of the devastation to come if we don’t radically decarbonise the planet. Capitalists will hoard the necessities for survival during shortages and expect you to pay for them. We can decide whether we pay or we take it from them.

@CheshireEmber @distel and I also notice I had my cycling shoes strapped to the top. I remember now, whilst it doesn't look super deep, it was deep enough that I was wary of cycling through (loads of heavy gear on the bike), so I walked it through...

One of them was to help connect with people more spontaneously when people are nearby that's let's you indicate your availability or something.

I really don't want an app for that, I want a kitchen with a window I can hang out at preparing food and chatting with friends passing by (... maybe on their way to the lake having been collecting apples earlier ...)

I want to indicate my availability physically by moving to a place with a socialable architecture (or a dark cosy corner when not).

Still on my long train journey and listened to Jim Rutt interviewing Tristan Harris about Humane Tech and had a similar feeling to the last one.

Lots of nice insight into the problem (massive power asymmetry with tech companies and business models that incentive all sorts of shitty stuff).

But unbelievably uninspiring "solutions". Basically a list of apps that sound super privacy invading themselves.

@distel I love that trailer, I got my one in 2010 or so, the large one. I've been using the small one lately (looking after the ecotopia bike tour one)

@douginamug just book a 10 hour train journey, they'll seem short by comparison πŸ˜‰

What I wonder is where he appears in his own model? From listening to him he appears as a God-like figure that can see the truth, I get no sense of his awareness of his own limitated perspective.

Both him and the host want to avoid "the swamp" of post modernist subjectivity, but you can't just pull yourself out of the swamp because you don't like it.

I feel more compelled to tost accept (or even embrace) the uncertainty of the swamp AND get on with doing stuff....
