Godflesh in #Edinburgh next month:
Never mind the parrots. What about the pelicans?
Help the social.coop CoC development call not be all dudez! Show more
As the CoC will be a vital piece of infrastructure that operationalizes our community values, it's super important to have diverse voices contributing to its creation! So, share your availability here: https://www.loomio.org/p/6IOZ0C3U/next-code-of-conduct-development-call-scheduling
@kdsch Here's a shot at 5 hypotheses:
1. #capitalismkills - is in its death throes, wants to take most of us and human societies with it. Could be followed by something much better or much worse or some of each. We prefer better, but will take a lot of work.
2. People have thought about better-economic-system-than-capitalism for a long time. Previous attempts have failed, totally or partially. Will take some experiments to figure out how to do it better. Practice beats theory.
Remember that time when folks were asking about "Federated Instagram"?
Well... does this count?
"Fontina is intended to be an ActivityPub-compliant, federated, photo-sharing-based social network."
"Plants for a Future" is an amazing site/project that maintains a detailed database on #permaculture / #foodforest plants suitable for Temperate regions. And, they need money to keep going! I just signed up for €1 monthly. If you can spare it, they're doing good work! :) https://pfaf.org/user/cmspage.aspx?pageid=313
“Google Has Most of My Email Because It Has All of Yours”: the story of how a person with their own mail server still ends up having Google able to read half their mail https://mako.cc/copyrighteous/google-has-most-of-my-email-because-it-has-all-of-yours #Email #Privacy
Somehow #Google can tell me how busy my local bar is on any hour or day of the week...
(Something I hadn't noticed before, since I avoid using Google Search.)
My phone also spontaneously prompts me to "post a review" when I go into certain public places....
Might be time to revisit that unofficial build of #LineageOS.
Damn near impossible. Even rooted or with Titanium Backup... they just pop right back. I tried all sorts, unlinking from the market, etc. Nope.
And I noticed this HTC system app called "smith". "Hey", I thought, "isn't that the baddie in The Matrix?"
Well... not to be paranoid but, it says here that Smith, AKA HTC.Loggers is spyware... & uninstallable.
There is also a planned group chat, weigh in on what time is best for you: https://www.loomio.org/p/0k8ROFnX
If you are not a member but would be interested in joining a co-op tech team, consider getting involved! Please boost for visibility~
(My main communication app is Signal.org BTW, but it isn't currently supported by Rambox.)
On this #MayDay, I wish for myself and all others who so wish to fully liberate ourselves from wage labour (including freelancing and 'gig economy' work).
So happy to be dedicating the majority of my time to solidarity, cooperative, libre, commons, and pro-bono work 😀 😌 🙃
Self-directed cooperation FTW!
