Tinkering with our entire planetary system is not a climate silver bullet.

The hypothetical promise of future #geoengineering is already being used by fossil fuel companies to justify the continued production & use of oil, gas, & coal for decades to come. thehill.com/opinion/energy-env

Pizzaesque creation! Bell peppers, spinach, vegan sausage crumble, olives, sauce, and a looooot of garlic. Fun to make, and it’s pretty tasty.

#ArchInk or #archaeology #inktober ! :trowel:
"each day of October, make something inspired by the prompt and if you like, share it on [social-platforms] with #archink and check out how every one else interprets it too! Draw, ink, paint, crochet... the world is your oyster."

I might join with a sketch... in the meanwhile I spread this interesting project on the web (not twitter-only!) by sharing Dr. Katherine Cook
(twitter @KatherineRCook) bookshelf prompts!

I am sick and tired of constantly reviewing settings in web browsers to see if they have snuck in some new tracking mechanism that I get to disable because "your privacy is important to us".

I am sick and tired of all the black UX that goes into this, like opt out instead of opt in, or at least providing top level choices like, say, Fuck NO I'd NEVER EVER Like You To Track ANYTHING Now And In Every Perceivable Future. Like sync'ing every setting in your profile except tracking related settings, because hey that way you might by mistake opt out of tracking on another installation where you really wanted to be tracked. The list goes on and on.

Browsers are critical infrastructure and clearly an open source stamp on them fails in itself to provide any meaningful shield towards capitalist subversion.

I'd like a browser with a license that explicitly rules out *any* kind of commercial entity or interest contributing or directing development.

Just now this was brought to my attention: A to support the whistleblower who decided to make her identity public.
