"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.

I love the tiny, expanding Gopher network. People hosting small public access shell servers, sometimes with only 128MB RAM, sometimes more, access via a restricted shell, sometimes with git, sometimes with a weird publishing system, all of them with Gopher hosting. 😍

The big problem with this "get off gmail" plan is i'm not going to make it out of the "pick a fun domain for personal mail" phase without buying like 8 new domains that i can't use for anything except jokes

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."
