Lots of people weren't around for when the fediverse was at its first peak at around 2010-2011. Google Plus swept in and plenty of people quit the fediverse saying "Google will do a better job keeping this running than independent sites can." For this and some other reasons, for some time the fediverse was a ghost town.

Let's not forget that next time.

Hey folks (signal boost appreciated): I'm working on a series of urban fantasy novels that will prominently feature solidarity economics (first one due to the publisher in September). Does anyone know of any co-ops open to giving access to their day to day operations for the sake of accurate storytelling? I really want to get the democratic practices and the mundane everyday stuff absolutely right. I think it is very important.

Closing out 2018 with a major new release of Beautiful Soup. (crummy.com/software/BeautifulS)

In 4.7.0, CSS selector support goes from 'haphazard' to 'nearly complete' with the inclusion of Isaac Muse's SoupSieve (facelessuser.github.io/soupsie).

Please use it to make things better!

So a question: how much tabletop crossover do we have here? How many of us are TTRPG people, how many are board game people, how many are card game people, etc.?

I obviously love TTRPGs and I like to play board games when I can get enough friends together to do so. Not much of a card player, though.

My potted view on adding extra ethical clauses to open source licenses: you should totallytry it out! But (and this is something that the GPL's aikido hides), the point of FLOSS licenses is to bypass the problems that ideas of intellectual property insert into the free flow of digital information. So, you get to add your clauses, but you will also end up with the friction and unintuitive consequences of IP law.

This has, historically, Not Gone Well. But who knows what the future holds?
