Then design accordingly.

This tree is named Hyperion. Standing at a height of 115.61 metres, it is Earth's tallest known living tree.

Hyperion is a coast redwood (sequoia sempervirens) and it lives somewhere in Redwood National Park in California. The exact location is remote, and is being kept secret to avoid any potential ecological damage or vandalism which too many visitors might bring.

"The Cybercouncil says only active, fitted augmentations qualify."
"What does that mean?"
"You're no cyborg."
"I wear glasses!"
"Sorry. Hearing aid, jointed prosthetic, pacemaker-"
"So I'm just a normal human?"
"Hardly anyone is normal. You'll be different some way."
"I hope so."

The emergency maintenance is complete, Social.coop is now running 2.6.4.

Social.coop will be offline for emergency maintenance briefly while we update to 2.6.4. This is to fix the queueing issue in 2.6.2 that has been causing long delays in the feeds.

The social network #ScuttleButt is unusual:

-You can view and post messages while offline. It updates when a connection is next available.

-It optionally supports #MeshNetworks, so you can connect to others without the internet.

It's still quite tricky to use, but a new app called #ManyVerse is trying to make it easier:

manyver.se/

Currently on Android (on Play and soon F-Droid), with iOS and desktop Win/Mac/Linux on the way.

Coop education resources and "learning paths" in English, Spanish, and French.

"The Cooperative Educators Network (CENet) is a hub for educational resources and materials for teaching and learning about cooperative enterprises. Here you will find several curated learning paths designed to help someone self-teach to increase their awareness, knowledge or skills OR for someone in an educator role to gather materials to use in the teaching of others."

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
