@vepar le prix est un poil moins cher en ligne, car je crois me souvenir que sur borne depuis la gare Part-Dieu, c'est 16,90 €. Le Rhônexpress est dorénavant la "seule" ligne officielle mis à part les taxis, tous les bus ou navettes concurrentes ont été gentiment priées de disparaître. C'est un petit scandale local.

Universal Basic Income is Silicon Valley’s latest scam...
The plan is no gift to the masses, but a tool for our further enslavement.
UBI is not the patch we need. A weekly handout doesn’t promote economic equality — much less empowerment. The only meaningful change we can make to the economic operating system is to distribute ownership, control, and governance of the real world to the people who live in it.
@clairezed on t'a déjà recommandé "l'entraide" de Servigne & co ?
@vepar 30mn et pas loin de 20€ de Rhône Express par tête !
@nolwenn super poétique et drôle, merci <3
#Bitcoin must die
If Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear. This is roughly equivalent to the output of ten coal-fired power plants, emitting 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C.
pour ceux qui s'intéressent aux ratés de la techologie et à l'envers de ses promesses, je recommande le magazine "Logic", avec par exemple un très bon article qui revient sur la promesse de faire disparaitre les jobs (https://logicmag.io/05-the-automation-charade/) ou sur les limites de l'IA (https://logicmag.io/01-interview-with-an-anonymous-data-scientist/) https://logicmag.io/
@mcpaccard and finally, I muted group conversations with 2+friends : those are usually not important. The only notifications remaining are one-to-one chats with close ones (and even with this limited case, I find myself checking my phone more than I should...).
@mcpaccard I realized that nothing was as urgent as what I'm living in the instant, and I feel like I'm not less reliable than before : I still check my phone several times an hour so I can just call back usually
@MaximeVende thanks for the tip! Hadn’t considered it.
It’s important that I pause and analyse my feelings towards the tools I use and how they impact my life. I’ve tried to notice when I was feeling stressed because of notifications or social media pressure and how I could soothe this stress down with a few tweaks.
The only remaining sound notifications are: phone, Whatsapp and Signal. Mail is silent but still shows the number of undread ones, even if I’m thinking about disabling that soon. All other apps are silent / not showing anything.

A quiet Saturday morning = perfect time to rearrange my homescreen. Got rid of Twitter and Instagram, they are now hidden in a folder on page 2. May delete them someday soon. I noticed that I‘ve not used them much lately, Twitter is an endless pit of anxiety and bad news anyway, and Instagram is just ads now. Amaroq stays, Headspace is back. The only app to still show notifications is Mail. I got rid of my Gmail account on here too.
The free libre open source analytics software Matomo (formerly known as Piwik) is now on the fediverse:
They also have a website:
The software costs nothing if you self-host, and they also offer a paid hosted option for people who prefer it.
Unlike Google Analytics, Matomo's data stays entirely on the site that uses it. No one else has access to it, so there's no way for it to be aggregated across many sites.
@notabene si seulement on expliquait clairement et pragmatiquement aux gens là bas ce que ça implique comme conséquences sur leur quotidien, histoire qu’ils n’acceptent pas les fuites comme une normalité :/
