Today I heard from @handle that the next NLNet grant application deadline is in 4 days -- I also learned that this year they have a new category called "User Operated Internet". I got really excited about this because the last time I applied to the NLNet grant program, there wasn't really a good category for my project to fit under. But "User Operated Internet" is perfect!

I spent today throwing up a rough draft of a home page for my project. In the past I have called it Greenhouse, but I am thinking now I'm going to change the name to Server Garden, because the original thing that was going to be called Server Garden is now on hiatus.

Please take a look and let me know what you think! I know it has tons of issues, but I'm still interested to hear what folks think about it:

the single largest polluter in the world is the us military, which, unlike coal plants in china, provides no useful service to anyone. what am i to conclude are the goals of an 'environmentalism' that concentrates on denying victims of colonialism electricity before denying its perpetrators weapons

🧵 Don't let them tell you that sexual violence comes mainly from "deviants" and "freaks".

Know that it comes mainly from "upright citizens", whom they will protect from accountability by pointing out how "normal" and "proper" they are. 1/8

I heard a theory recently that felt right to me: that Elon Musk's Boring Company isn't actually meant to produce usable mass transit. Instead, it's designed to outbid other public-transit proposals and then intentionally fail, so that trust in public transit proposals will be eroded and people will continue to buy and drive cars.

The audience award of this year's #BigBrotherAwards goes to … #Doctolib for their appointment scheduling portal for medical doctors which leaks personal information to third parties, breaking patient–doctor confidentiality.
Full laudation: bigbrotherawards.de/en/2021/he

It is closely followed by #Google who received the award in the new #WhatMakesMeReallyAngry category for recently exposed large-scale manipulations of the Internet #adtech market, for starving creators and the media, and for dispossessing our digital personalities.

At Disneyland, you're always within 30 feet of a trash can.

This is deliberate. You never see litter on park grounds.

In our actual cities?

Not a trash can in sight. It's a form of hostile architecture. We blame litter on the homeless instead of bad design.

Policy choices.

Just in case you wanted to do one in your neighborhood... Bolt is 2.5"x5/16", nut is 5/16". Use washers on either side of the signs to make it tougher to tear down. Bring a folding chair to get to heights you wouldn't otherwise be able to reach (which will also delay removal). Bring a friend who can look out for the jakes.
