Interesting piece on the tensions between the underlying philosophies of creativecommons and . creativecommons.org/2021/05/04

"the person minting the NFT abides by the terms of the license (..offers proper attribution and complies with anything that would be triggered by the SA clause), they are operating in line with what the license enables, both legally and in spirit. To extend the “limited edition prints” analogy ... bit like pressing a limited run of vinyl records using CC-licensed audio."

Interesting cs. Great piece on designing for low latency routing (with physically flying nodes), fault tolerance, memory addressing resilience to stray high energy particles and more. stackoverflow.blog/2021/05/11/ Which took my curiosity to people.eecs.berkeley.edu/~sylv

Some of us, living in less connected regions, have been extremely grateful for It's an easy target to dump on when you already live in a fiberous hub. Personally grateful for it.

Daily Mail's defence that it's headline was an obvious lie, dismissed.

Daily Mail prints racist lies that cause harm to those it targets. Please don't buy it or share it's content.

As we near the end of 2021, year of giddy , it is a good time to think about our current situation in the world where has taken on absolutely insane proportions, especially with the pandemic and all.

Just let's all reflect for ourselves what we can we do in 2022 to improve this situation.

@humanetech @JohnJClimateMarcher @muppeth So your point about a trade-free service/good relying on trade to be produced, is in most cases, if not all, true. But I explained above, it is like with FOSS. It was built with proprietary software and it is still is. That's doesn't make it non-foss.

We can't have a perfect chain of trade-free production and distribution. At least not as of yet. But we have to start somewhere. Wikipedia, FOSS, doctors without borders, the many million of volunteers and projects out there, are extraordinarily important and necessary. The more, the better. They are not perfect and they still rely on the foundation of this trade-system. But the more we have, the less reliance on trade to acquire the abundance of stuff we have today.

Introducing the Small Web mailing list: lists.flounder.online/smallweb

For discussion of projects, people and ideas related to the small / independent / non-commercial web.

This mailing list (which is pull-based rather than push-based) runs crabmail, a new mailing list archive that I built: crabmail.flounder.online/ -- the software is new and evolving, and I welcome any feedback.

Happy holidays!

did you know that #mastodon web UI has OCR built in? so when you are posting screenshots of text, a transcription of the text to put into a description of the image is literally one click away. when uploading image into a toot, just klik 'Edit' and then 'detect text from picture'. that's it.

please help sighted people. it's costing you two extra clicks.

Do you already have a #WeekendProject?

If not, why not try to fix that publishing a release draft does not create the activity, see codeberg.org/Codeberg/Communit and github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issu ?

Thank you 🙃
