Έχει και ο Σαββόπουλος ένα τραγούδι για τη ζωή στην πυκνοκατοικημένη πόλη, την , και φυσικά το μπαλκόνι, που όλοι ξοδέψαμε πολύ χρόνο πάνω του.


Σας αφήνω! Next time 90's με ό,τι κι αυτό αν σημαίνει ;-)

Bye for now, next time, the ninenties, whatever that means ;-)


A favorite song-maker has written a song about the , life so close to strangers, and the balconies we all spent so much time on, watching the others on their own balconies across the street.


He talks about the girl that comes out to smoke, the swallows that made their home under the ledge, the party on the apartment across the street and the bedsheets, hanging to dry.

Lyrics in the description, gtranslate does an okay job if you want to know what it says

Even in 2011 and after the first ever population decline, Greece has 3 entries in the most densely populated areas in the world. 1 neighborhood in Thessaloniki (18th) and two in Athens (28th and 29th).

In 1980, in a world with 4.5b people these areas were probably in the top 10.

The despite its limited height can gather many many people together.

Ακόμα και το 2011 και μετά την πρώτη μείωση του πληθυσμού των 00's, η Ελλάδα έχει τρεις γειτονιές της στη λίστα με τις 43 πιο πυκνοκατοικημένες περιοχές του πλανήτη. (Η Νεάπολη Θεσσαλονίκης είναι στη 18η θέση και ακολουθούν η Καλλιθέα και η Νέα Σμύρνη στην 28η και 29η).

Το 1980, σε έναν κόσμο με το μισό πληθυσμό οι περιοχές αυτές μάλλον ήταν στην πρώτη δεκάδα.

Η πολυκατοικία, παρά το περιορισμένο της ύψος μπορεί να συγκεντρώσει πάρα πολύ κόσμο πολύ πολύ κοντά.

Athens reaches a population plateau right about 1981. In the whole decade it is going to grow by a mere 50k people (inner city) and 100k people (prefecture) leading to a city of 3 and 3.5 million respectively.

The building of the picture was (according to the plaque on the entrance) in 1980 but it looks like the building permit was issued before 1973 (notice the bay windows/erker). The materials used though reveal it's age (aluminium/plastic)

Η Αθήνα το 81 έχει φθάσει πια στο peak του πληθυσμού. Η πόλη θα αυξηθεί μόλις κατά 50 χιλιάδες κατοίκους και το υπόλοιπο της Αττικής κατά 100 μέσα στη δεκαετία αγγίζοντας τα 3 και 3.5 εκατομμύρια κατοίκους αντίστοιχα.

Η πολυκατοικία της εικόνας αποπερατώθηκε το 1980 σύμφωνα με την επιγραφή στην είσοδο, αλλά φαίνεται να ακολουθεί άδεια εκδοθείσα προ του 73 (παρατηρήστε τα έρκερ). Τα υλικά όμως είναι ξεκάθαρα του 80 (πλαστικό/αλουμίνιο)

For anybody that would like to immerse in another time and place, here are 360° photos of the apartment. Taken with google cardboard camera.


Για όποιον θέλει να χαθεί για λίγο μέσα στο σπίτι του 80, εδώ φωτό 360 μοιρών από όλα τα δωμάτια. Συμβατές με google cardboard camera. c.d-e.gr/s/ncjB2NvrF5CoFx9

I'd like to be able to have interior photos for this journey. I thought of trying to sneak into multiresidences pretending to be handing out flyers but it's too much of emotional effort to deal with suspicious residents.

However, due to the awesome work of the people of Athens Technopolis and the GR80's exhibition I have photos from a mock apartment as it was in the 80's. The apartment itself is (supposed to be) older. They even had actors dressed in 80's clothes!

Θα ήθελα να μπορούσα να έχω φωτογραφικό υλικό και από το εσωτερικό των πολυκατοικιών. Σκέφτηκα να το παίξω διανομέας διαφημιστικών αλλά αποφάσισα ότι δεν αξίζει τον κόπο.

Συγκεκριμένα για τη δεκαετία όμως που μιλάμε, χάρη στην εξαιρετική προσπάθεια των ανθρώπων της τεχνόπολης έχω ένα χαρακτηριστικό δείγμα διαμερίσματος. Είναι ένα διαμέρισμα όπως θα ήταν στα μέσα της δεκαετίας, όμως το ίδιο το διαμέρισμα (θεωρητικά) είναι παλαιότερο. Δυστυχώς οι φωτό είναι κακές.

Hi again! The break between our tootstorms here has been getting longer and longer but since I'm doing this just for fun, work and general tiredness doesn't leave enough energy to research every day.

We where back at the 1980's. The kids of the 80's in Athens were in a great majority first generation Athenians. A very usual question during introductions in class was "Where are you from?" meaning, where did your parents come from.

Γειά σας και πάλι. Δυστυχώς έχουν μεγαλώσει τα διαλείμματα μεταξύ των επεισοδίων αλλά με τη δουλειά δεν είναι τόσο εύκολο να αφιερώσω το χρόνο που απαιτεί η , και καθώς το ψάχνω απλά επειδή με ενδιαφέρει συνήθως η κούραση της ημέρας δεν αφήνει αρκετή όρεξη για updates. Είχαμε μείνει στη δεκαετία του 80. Τα παιδιά της Αθήνας τη δεκαετία του 80 είναι κατά πολύ μεγάλη πλειοψηφία πρώτης γενιάς Αθηναίοι.

Hello Mastodon !
I've just seen on fediverse.party that Mastodon has almost 2M active users ! Yeah ! 🤘
What about a big celebration when it will reach 2M ?
All creative people out there could do something about that, may it be music, drawing, pastry, code, photography, whatever. That could be fun, right ? 🙂

You are high priest of a small religion of around 10000 followers, all on a small island in the Pacific. It turns out that you were right all along and your gods just returned from their 300000 year vacation.

I've just released Mastodon De-Mob, an anti-harassment tool that lets users to block everyone who favorited or boosted a toot calling for harassment. mastodon-de-mob.codesections.c

Please feel free to test it out with the example URL I provided; that will only block a test account I set up for this purpose. Hopefully, you won't ever need it for real.

It also reports the harassing toot, which I hope will prevent the tool's abuse for non-harassing toots.

@Qwxlea Which is why we don’t have an ethical software license (although there are many variations out there). Licenses may not be the best way to ensure ethical technology. Education, social pressure, regulation, and leading by example are probably all areas that we can focus our efforts on.

A problem I see here, is that MIT and gpl both are legally explainable. Ethical, on the other hand, is a vague term. One man's ethics is the other man's nonsense.

I'm not in favor of drones, but writing a license that is both free software *and* avoiding killer drones using it, seems impossible.

This thread started off great, but then kept getting better and better. Congrats all!

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
