Any hackers in #Toronto interested in networking and mesh networks? Toronto Mesh (tomesh.net) set up our first supernode yesterday!

Boosts welcome.

Elon Musk said "The left is losing the middle", and I think hes right, but no one is brave enough to say it, since when you leave the left or the right, they both attack you viciously.

I would even say that the right is losing the middle, there is a new group in the middle that is fed up with bi-partisan bull shit. Perhaps a third party will finally emerge again in America?

@sir C++ is what you get when you start designing a language and you realise you're digging too much deep, and you decide to climb out of the hole by digging through the earth.

Don't get me wrong, computers can absolutely help us regain our environmental efficiency. They just *aren't*.

Not as long as we're:
* constantly syncing everything to the cloud,
* expecting same-hour delivery,
* funding our clickbait via surveillance advertising,
* buying a new phone every year,
* using AIs because they're cool rather than useful,
* running bloated software & webpages,
* buying into "big data"
* etc

Computing is environmentally cheap, but it rapidly adds up!

I finished reading World Wide Waste by Gerry McGovern. I'd consider it essential reading for anyone working with computers!


It's well cited (though I still need to check those citations) & uses maths effectively to make it's point.

That computers + (surveillance) capitalism is actually worse for the environment than the predigital era. That we can and must move slow and fix things, and fund that vital work directly.

Saw some article with James Clapper as a source of information...did we all just forget he lied through his fucking teeth to the American public and the world? How the fuck is American media even listening to this guy?

It seems we've just forgotten about Snowden and what he unearthed.
