Happy #EarthDay !
This is what’s needed to stay below 1,5°C of warming.

Note that this doesn’t include the aspect of equity, feedback loops or additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution.

Sorry to bother but it’s time to act.

The Original Sin of Free Software

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!

If this is you, please consider helping us out: tinyurl.com/DialectSurvey2019 People love talking about how differently they talk from how other people talk, so I hope you have fun with it!

If it's not you, feel free to boost it.

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.

My #coop started to create a local first #federated #foss #ethical alternative to #uber or #ola.

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.

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.

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 😅

Warm hello to another cooperatively governed fediverse instance 😃

That makes four that I know about

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?

Actual issue at Kanthaus. @nicksellen @kawaiipunk @bthall
