There's a group (https://www.parentsforfuture.org.uk/) formed to support kids in their #ClimateStrike, I think I was waiting for this. Saw (but can't re-find) a rumour there will be a call from students for solidarity action on May 3rd.
This video is clearly doing the "think of the children!" thing but, given that it's true and I've spent a lot of time trying to visualise this recently, I'll let them off. Watch it.
Would like to carry on a conversation about this; plz boost to help me find fellow parents / tired relics of failed campaigns hoping for one last shot at redemption. (Is that the plot of The Expendables?)

Someone asked me about this very recently so I felt it was worth writing out my thoughts in more detail. This isn’t a manifesto, or a declaration, its just an essay putting some structure on my thoughts.
This is clever*. I love Venn diagrams.

For a uni project, my class needs native speakers of English who spent at least their childhood (ages 4 to 13) in the UK to do a quick survey!

We're actually going to be doing some cool science with the results we get, which I'm happy to talk about here once it's done.
I have found technical clarity over it only recently, after a year. However, the business plan to compete with a monopoly still isn't clear.
I am now resigned to believe that creating a walled garden is the only way to survive in today's market but it is no easy task, especially for an ethical cash starved worker coop.
#Introduction Hi folks! Great to be here! Had been looking to join social.coop for quite a while now. I'm very interested in the appropriate application of technology to the cooperative space.
John Harris' "Anywhere but Westminster" series is a refreshing (if depressing) chance to hear the viewpoints of some of those powerless people whose lives will be affected by Brexit, rather than the self-entitled windbags currently fighting over the rudder.
Yay! The great folks at ODI Leeds have a petition progress tracker: https://odileeds.org/projects/petitions/241584

Okay, this artist is amazing. Their name is Jerobeam Fenderson, and they make music that, when fed into an oscilloscope, draws its own imagery
You’ve really got to see it—further description on the video. Use caution if you’re wearing headphones 😅

Depressed and Then Diagnosed With Autism, Greta Thunberg Explains Why Hope Cannot Save Planet But Bold Climate Action Still Can
"We do need hope—of course, we do. But the one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere."
Imagine you're living in a common house without rent or other living costs.
You're expected to work for the common good of the house and world outside out of gratitude.
Now imagine you still want a _bit_ of money, because the rest of the world still runs on money and sometime you like going outside.
Can you think of an equitable, low-bureaucracy way to recommend how much people should donate from their income to the house?
What's the difference between a pelican? One leg is both the same.
