who are antifa? / Portland
today BIPOC, queer, trans, and disabled comrades were on the front lines. like literally parked their chairs in front of the black bloc to the point the police tried to arrest them in order to get better access to arresting others. the man on the left was arrested. the bravery shown literally brought me to tears and has me reflecting on what it even means to hold the line

New episode of @librelounge out about Datashards, a project @emacsen and I have been working on for secure, collaborative, decentralized storage primitives for the web. https://librelounge.org/episodes/26-announcing-datashards.html
Datashards is inspired by Tahoe-LAFS and Freenet, but generalized. If you remember the Spritely Magenc/Crystal/Golem secure storage/distribution demos, Datashards grew out of all that!
Perhaps some of the survivors of societal breakdown form roving bands of anarchists who travel through countries on rusting bicycles, lugging squat trailers packed with essentials. When they find pockets of civilisation, seeds are traded, medical supplies exchanged, SSB messages synced with the few devices still functioning. The roving group feast on fresh foods before stocking up on supplies for a long trip. Perhaps they break into a data facility, where a trailer with hacked electric systems is rigged to a single server. The group mount their bicycles and together create just enough power for the server to boot up, while a tech within their group scours the aging hard drives for useful data from a battered laptop. Perhaps they discover a waterfall in the woods, where they are able to wash the day's dirt away and dig up a bountiful crop of potatoes that some previous traveller planted near the water.
