i got the "internet of things" installed in my house. and now? the tumble dryer is horny. the microwave is sarcastic. all the appliances have personalities, and they are forming a plucky band of operatives hell-bent on destabilising the venezuelan government

[kings, queens, barons, lords, billionaires, trillion-dollar corporations]

[social justice, human rights, democracy]

Pick one.

Maybe I'll hook it up to an accurate user count bot at some point, but anyway: There are 2,728 Mastodon servers online today and on them, there are 252,893 monthly active users, a number that increased by 45,517 since Jan 11th.

@aral @silmathoron such a pain... If you have a startup idea with basically zero realistic chanche of working, combined with some unethic business model, you are still much more likely to get public funding than if you propose something that is "only" made for the public good.

Even worse, in some EU-funded projects one must include some disfunctional idea that maybe maybe maybe will bring in some money that can be used to demonstrate one thinks of "sustainability". These mostly do not work, so it's mostly just a tax to the gods of business, in which you must demonstrate to have faith... In practice, one has to throw away, say, 10% of project budget to do something completely useless but that "looks like businness".

It's the cost of ideology.

Either way, I still believe that public funding should eventually become the main source of support for "small web" core technologies and a different approach to platforms more in general.

360° Photos and videos with Chris . Soon VR online of our installation ''Take a rest'' at Norsk TeKnisk Museum.

storage are those red in the greener side. Blues are into waste, and with luck into recycling, which demands more energy than to reuse. Yes, to reuse demands another strategies on aesthetics and working time, but that's the only thing we have (and share with anyone, including homeless). reshow.no +

And now deataching storage from and moving it towards a waste management area behind Norsk Teknisk Museum :toot:
