@blakehaswell especially when our basic needs and those of our families are met and we're not full of anxiety about what will happen if someone gets sick.

@uranther @h also be sure to check out the listings at coops.tech (UK) and techworker.coop (North America).

Ooh ooh @loriemerson raspberry pis as COBOL running mainframes! Mainframe on the Macbook - medium.com/@bellmar/mainframe-

sightings at Heathrow: a flashy ad about what Microsoft is doing for the (consumer owned) Co-op grocery stores, and some kids doing a web search for (worker owned) John Lewis Partnership. Probly more I didn't notice.

* xfce/xubuntu
* basic theme: Plano
* window theme: Uranus Unity
* Icon theme: Paper
* font: Open Sans 11

But now KDE Plasma is sounding kinda cool...

@mayel @h Oooh great—which piece of Bookchin's is this from?

@Matt_Noyes of course! I've heard of him, but would love to connect.
