We're having 2 open hack days in Mexico City (Oct 2-3) everyone is welcome to join. There will also be a relay operator meetup Oct 2 @ 6:30pm.
You can learn more about Tor, hack on something with us, or just meet folks who are also interested in free and open source software, online privacy, and free expression.
Most sessions will be conducted in English, but some will be in Spanish. There will be speakers of multiple languages attending.
They offer three month internships with free and open source projects — #FOSS. Interns are paid a 5,500 USD stipend and have access to a 500 USD travel allowance.
I can't recommend this program enough. It's such a rich and welcoming experience, in addition to being a great way to start working in tech.
Start your application today!
It will be impossible to get ahead of problems like conservation and waste using market forces and enticements because there's literally no demand that needs to be filled until scarcity occurs, and after scarcity occurs, how much remains that can be conserved? Best case is that demand can be projected and estimated, but that's tomorrow, and we've got problems to solve today

The whole patent situation isn't super clear to a layman like myself, but I've started to build a list that links to archived links of DrugBank, PubChem, and Wikipedia for each medicine listed on 20th edition of the WHO list: https://gitlab.com/thejf/essentialmedicines
Far from done at the moment though.
Are there any open-source or public domain #pharmaceuticals online? I'm looking at the WHO list of essential #medicines ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WHO_Model_List_of_Essential_Medicines [Wiki] or http://apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/handle/10665/273826/EML-20-eng.pdf [PDF]) and wondering how many of the medicines on the list, if any, have anything from formulation to manufacturing process, etc. online. Not that I know anything about #pharma, but it seems like the kind of thing humanity should have access to. #health
Hello dear #Fediverse, I'm calling for your help in the development of another implementation of #ActivityPub to federate with everyone. There is a nice place #Juick.com which started more than 10 years ago as a microblogging service via Jabber/XMPP. Over the years the support of posting/commenting via Telegram and by email were added. And now it's time to move further - implement ActivityPub and federate!
Current developer @firstname.lastname@example.org has already done great job in learning specs and implementing the protocol. But he is facing some issues which he can't solve himself.
This is a post (in Russian) about where he is stuck: https://juick.com/vt/2919780
And there is my translation below.
Please, contact him if you beleive you can help. Thanks a lot!
So I completely understood specs, implemented those in Juick and can consult others. 8) It's just not federating with other existing instances:
1) #Mastodon - public servers show profiles from Juick, number of followers and number of messages. But they don't show messages themselves. It's not clear how to diagnose. They don't reply to my bug reports ( https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/8625 ). I also can't run it locally: out of 1Gb of ruby-scripts 500Mb of ruby-scripts with native extentions don't compile successfully on a Mac (how did they manage to use such extentions which are not working on a favourite OS of Ruby developers?). On Linux it also fails most likely due to lack of 1Gb RAM in the virtual machine.
2) #Pleroma - starts perfectly but it shows only avatars from Juick, the rest - not. And it constantly floods logs with database constraint errors (after searching a user it records this in its db, and then second search doesn't work as it assumes the user already exists!)
3) #Misskey - that either Japanese or Chinese product, looks weird itself... and I couldn't find user search there.
What else can I do? I'm ready to drop this and just leave email for users... :)
The future is here today : you can't play Bach on Facebook because Sony says they own his compositions
James Rhodes, a pianist, performed a Bach composition for his Facebook account, but it didn’t go up — Facebook’s copyright filtering system pulled it down and accused him of copyright infringement because Sony Music Global had claimed that they owned 47 seconds’ worth of his personal performance of a song whose composer has (...)
Crossposting makes me feel like wherever you're dumping content is the top of the hill, and wherever it ends is what you think the ditch is.
Some good news: when I hit that part of the art sinewave where things don't look good, I've trained myself to go "oh, well then this is something I want to practice!" instead of getting super down on myself.
I made my second batch of hummus last night. Even better than the first. On the first I really made way too much, and I also added a lot of lemon juice, which made it really sweet, which was fine... At first. Got tired of it pretty quick, though. This time I also added just a little pepper.
I soaked the chickpeas for nearly a day, and I guess the reason you should stop after 16 hours is that they started sprouting xD so I guess I'm going to plant this one and see what happens
When you’re evil, but you also gotta stop to smell the flowers.
really bad cat
