After spending an hour trying to help my mother install some software from across the country, I feel a fresh sense of appreciation for malware hackers.

Just saw my first Blackwater vet biker gang.

On this 9th anniversary of , with obsession over the presidency at a fever pitch, I'm especially grateful for its insistence that politics must come from us, not the false options of candidates.

Just signed up for my free real-life copy of Exit to Community!

(I'm trying to start a couple cooperative platforms; might be easier to focus just on getting a viable platform business with a clear plan to later exit to community. More practically, i know some progressive small businesses and people organizing their workplaces where this might be relevant to both and i can lend out.)

Maybe the thing that will save us from civil war is our decadence.

Looking forward to this week's ! In my Disruptive Entrepreneurship class we're disrupting the syllabus to focus on legacies of Black refusal.

I think we covered child labor, online governance, and what else?

@Matt_Noyes a friend just moved to manitou springs and is looking for a good credit union. Recommendations?

Congratulations to @ampl3d for its first 200 artist members! The site is looking beautiful--a beautiful version of the look I used for my co-op house's website in college. But dang. Great work!
