Nachdem sich die Koalition zu #219a geeinigt hat, wird das staatsstreichartig durchs Parlament gepeitscht:

1. Lesung Freitag
Anhörung Montag
Ausschüsse Dienstag
Verabschiedung OHNE Debatte Mittwoch

Es soll nicht mal darüber geredet werden.
Ohne Grund, außer: unangenehm.

Playing a bunch of Stardew Valley again the last few evenings. It's obviously #solarpunk, but it occurred to me the degree to which its conception of farming relies on advanced automation, too. Raw ingredients, which practically self-harvest, are processed into "artisanal" goods using craft stations that take hours but no further effort from the operator. Far from being a "back to basics" anprim setting, it's an advanced technology eutopia of local farmers using robots to fight capitalism.

bike politics, berlin (-) 

#mastobikes in 2015 a journalist made a video in which she said that berlin uses less than half of its budget for bicycle infrastructure, the rest of the money just does not get spent.

ast month, the "berliner zeitung" writes that this was also the case in 2017.

not only money for new projects, also the money that was budgeted for repairing bike lanes was not spent. and berlin bike lanes are often in a terrible state of disrepair.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you
