Arrived back to find the boat still in place, no leaks found so far. Very dusty at the back were the air vent is. Big issue is the main (expensive battery bank is at 5.5v and the dodgy controller (which i got a replacement for but did not fit over winter) has a dim red light only. Getting dark so no lights tonight, lets find more issues tommorw.
On the way to the boat #boatingeurope
From London to the Black Sea
Living in London for 4 years on a refurbished lifeboat we set-off across the English Channel and arrived at the Black Sea over 5000km and 3 years later. Now we turn around and head home, circumnavigating European inland waterways.
This is a video of the DIY Boater Gathering at the filterbeds, a slide talk, outlining the voyage, with Q&A with Hamish and Ana the crew.

#extinctionRebellion is lovely and fluffy at marble arch. Oxford street has been removed.
I'm listening to #DougRushkoff's interview with #FredTurner on #TeamHuman and its occurs to me that we are presented with a false choice, when it comes to the future of democracy. One the one hand, we're being asked to resuscitate the old, centralized model of the "nation-station", and on the other hand to abandon it in favour of a completely fluid, distributed model of P2P consensus over social networks. A model that we've seen lend itself to massive tyrannies of structurelessness. (1/2)

Congrats to the 14 land defenders on Gidimt'en territory who got their charges dropped on April 15!
Unfortunately, the police have only increased their harassment of the indigenous that live in the region that CGL is claiming as their "workzone" going as far as bulldozing homes, setting up checkpoints (somehow they are allowed), and harassing members of the community.
Here is our first video about how these incidents play out:
Political and tech - On the political side, there is arrogance and ignorance, on the geek side there is naivety and over- complexity
