WITCHES OF THE WORLD: THEIR BIOMES AND TECHNOLOGIES
Everyone knows the bog witches and their damp cauldrons, positioned over smokey peat fires, potions that go down thick with a mossy tickle in the back of the throat.
But what of the desert witches, with their cauldrons that resemble sandboxes, big enough to recline in, or bury one's self to hide from the unblinking sun? A stray peaked hat on the ground could indicate a submerged witch, awaiting nightfall.
Or ponder the arctic witches with their... snow... and stuff. Okay, we couldn't be bothered to visit them, it's too cold. That chapter's really short.
possibly part of the problem is that there even is an 'in charge of everything' position
also the 'destroy everything' machines, maybe we could turn those off?

THREE ESSENTIAL OILS YOUR BODY NEEDS THIS SEASON
The Oil of Nabgaranth - Drawn from the depths beneath the Lost City of Xxn, this oil coats your skin in a silky layer of luxuriance. As a kicky extra, it'll also give you the perfect beach body once the tentacles finish growing in and stop aching! Surf's up!
Product 18 - We signed a non-disclosure agreement so we can't say much, but our lawyers have informed us that we must say, in this public forum, that this oil is essential.
S-oil - We mean "soil." For agriculture. Just wanted to end the list with a fun little joke. But seriously, if we lose our topsoil, we've lost everything. You can't eat sand.

I dreamed that I read in a cybre/solarpunk zine about someone hand-making 6" LCD displays. I went to go visit them, down a dirt road in the forest. In front of a cottage there were odd plants with hanging flowers.
As I waited outside the house, a woman with short, dark hair came out, and told me that they were growing the displays on those plants. Unfortunately, they were currently only CGA, and she displayed some of the better images she had made for them.

In "How We Become The Social Safety Net: Human Fractals and Decentralized Alternatives to a UBI" Max Borders discusses the idea of a Distributed Income Support Cooperatives (DISC) as a voluntary, permissionless, decentralized way of coordinating mutual aid.
As for other new discoveries, I'd been wanting to find a coffeetree (Gymnocladus dioicus) for YEARS and managed to stumble upon this seedpod on a trail I've walked many times before- funny how that works. I was taken aback by the fact that these pods are hard as a ROCK compared to honeylocust pods, not at all what I was expecting.

in the future-present we have digitized everything but mostly to prevent you from owning things. personal data is freely bought, sold, and lost; nobody is ever held accountable. firms spin breaches to increase sales.
the public web hosts an ongoing international conflict that nobody wants to talk about, especially not the people conducting the conflict. hostile actors have weaponized clickbait as a form of psyop.
random strangers are often politically-motivated robots.
