One thing the fediverse really needs is the ability to authenticate as the same user over multiple services and post as the same user. Eg. if I could use @sam on a Lemmy and PeerTube instance and have it all be the same user that would be great.
Just got email setup on the co-op code forge a few of us are starting! For some reason this is exciting; it feels real now. #coop
EO Wilson has died. I was just listening to an interview with him on Vox Conversations yesterday ("EO Wilson's Plan to Save the World"), and can't recommend his books enough.
No, it is a coaster.
My representative, David Scott (GA-13) just introduced the MAKERS Act, HR6137 that provides funding for creating maker spaces! Check it out and please consider asking your representatives to support it! https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/6137
What is an NFT? It stands for "Nice, free treasures!" and it's a celebration of post-scarcity in the online realm. Once a work of digital art has been created (and the artist duly compensated for their labor), it can be reproduced infinitely at negligible cost.
⚠️ Beware of scams: some people are attempting to charge money for NFTs but they are FREE treasures ⚠️
@be I forget if I ever reached out, but you might be interested in a cooperative Gitea instance a few of us are starting. We wanted something U.S. based that could be an alternative to Codeberg (they're great of course, but having a diversity of options in various jurisdictions/currencies is good). Discussion is happening on https://groups.io/g/codeforge and we're mostly ready to deploy. Nno pressure, just thought you might be interested. More info at the OpenCollective too: https://opencollective.com/codepage
And while we're at it, consider asking them to support S.1736, the Capital for Cooperatives Act on the senate side of things.
US folks, please call your representatives and ask them to support H.R.4728, the Thirty-Two Hour Workweek Act. In fact, ask them to cosponsor it.
Cooperator , Atlantan, probably wants to be out backpacking ⛺🥾, climbing 🧗, or mountain biking 🚵.
