Bookmarked: Why Trust A Corporation to Do a Library’s Job? youtube.com/watch?v=V0M_p0sv-n A conversation with "Lurking" author Joanne McNeil and artist/technologist Darius Kazemi. Presented by Library Futures and the Internet Archive, this discussion invites you to explore whether we've traded convenience for the protections that libraries have always offered: privacy, preservation, and equitable access to knowledge.

It's interesting that just three decades after Pripyat was abandoned because of the Chernobyl disaster, the forest has already reclaimed the city.

Don't let anyone convince you that reforestation is difficult. It'll happen all by itself, if people allow it to.

> From Saskatchewan's doctors:
With original covid, only 20% of hospitalizations needed ICU treatment, now it's 40%. (4-to-1 to 1.5-to-1) current patients are younger and healthier, often without previous health issues, but are still having severe outcomes from the disease.

Just a quick reminder! I have a spiffy new #PeerTube instance up and running at https://spectra.video that has a lot of cheap storage space, and I'm looking for video creators that want to put their stuff out onto the fediverse!

Registration is manual, it's actively moderated and has a ToS; if you're interested, please reach out and let's talk about moving you to it!

I'm making progress on panbash, my new static site generator. It's taking longer than expected. once I'm done, I can tweak the libreboot site to work on it.

I'm making panbash support multiple pandoc-markdown sites. The idea is: it could manage hundreds of markdown sites

Food for thought

Could someone start a #peertube instance that only allows for User Creation, without uploads, and follows no other instances for the purpose of allowing people to simply hold a list of Subscriptions to the creators they wish to follow?

Essentially, there would be no local content, no federated content, only Subscriptions.

This would solve the "shit-show" problem of current large instances including moderation since users would curate their own experience.

Oh well, managed to get through to customer service. Now they are saying that an Islandwide issue is being fixed, and that is why they sent the false message to "close the issue"! Could have saved our time and the load on their network if they told us the truth!

Broadband connection is down. Had to wait for about 20 minutes to reach SLT customer service. Got a text in about 10 minutes saying that the service has been restored while it actually wasn't. Now trying to call them for the third time. Second attempt was aborted because the help desk person could not hear what I was saying.
