The Internet lost a hero today. EFF is mourning the loss of our visionary co-founder, John Perry Barlow. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/02/john-perry-barlow-internet-pioneer-1947-2018
I had an epiphany recently when an activist on a ventilator pointed out that it wasn’t their revolution if they died because you couldn’t keep the hospitals running.
Criticising “capitalism” only gets so far: you have to slide the better version underneath it while it’s running. You have to save everybody.
Otherwise you’ll need to remind me - and then - why you thought you’d be better.
This is why I like to watch “capitalism” closely (and lift everything that works).
Hi vis! I am sharing a personal project I’ve worked on that was really heartfelt: https://medium.com/@giorgialupi/bruises-the-data-we-dont-see-1fdec00d0036
I called it The Data We Don’t See. You can read all about it at the link. I am not sharing it for publicity, I am really interested in what you guys think about experimentations like this, be candid. :)
If we were to have any group of comical evil underlings with yellow bodies and blue overalls become popular, why did it have to be Minions and not Servbots?
Some aspects to keep in mind when dealing with the database in Django:
inspired: either inspireless or inswired, I haven't quite figured out this joke format. send help

I keep thinking about whether or not to dive into Monster Hunter: World. The core loop―hunt creatures, gather materials, upgrade items―seems appealing right now for some reason.
But then: Shouldn't I just play Breath of the Wild as Monster Hunter? Turn on the Sheikah Sensor+ for monsters and get materials to upgrade my gear?
Update about videos working in toot previews in Discord: Talked to Discord devs about it, they won't do anything until they add video proxying to their media proxy. So currently only whitelisted domains show videos inline. Weh
i have concluded that MediaWiki markup actively resists memorisation. It is a free concept, unbindable by human minds.
Come on down to Mastodon, we've got slimes, witches, kobolds, communists, animes, catgirls, catboys, all the genders, a lobster
It's so neat to see the influx of users from vis.social.
It's also neat that having topic- and community-driven instances enables this kind of phenomenon. It reminds me of stumbling on newsgroups, mailing lists, IRC channels, and forums for various topics.
Hey friends, please can someone give me some constructive criticism of this mini-project I'm setting up?
It's to help disabled people get the support they need in their lives (for free).
There are two forms you can fill in, one for support you need and one for support you can offer. there's also a spreadsheet that has all the info of who needs what help and who can offer what help etc. etc.
The idea is that I'll connect people who have similar support needs/"capabilities".
The departing of Ms. Le Guin also reminded me of a project creating musical albums inspired by, or as soundtracks to, science fiction works: "Sine Fiction". it was a sublabel of canadian No-Type.
No-Type was one of the first netlabels if not the first one that (seemingly) didn't spring out of the demoscene/trackergroups. Since 1998.
