For now, my #2 RSS/Feedly client is gonna have to do. Hello Leaf. Maybe you’re going to become my #1?

My favorite RSS/Feedly client, ReadKit, doesn’t play nice on Catalina and I’m bummed because the company that makes it is not responsive and their social media presence is barely existent. (Last @ReadKit post on Twitter is from Nov 2018.) I sent a bug report, but I’m not holding my breath. Sigh.

For a little while I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a cheap(er) laptop to run Ubuntu or Elementary OS. I’m thinking it would have to be decent enough though so that it doesn’t feel like a downgrade from my MacBook Pro and gives a chance to shine. Any hardware suggestions?

The Guardian is putting a lot of emphasis on the climate crisis in their coverage and they are vocal about the urgency of the moment. More like this please. CBC, I'm looking at you, ahem.

There must be 2500 people at least now in Traf Square.
All breaking the law, according to the police here.

Over 7,5 million people in over 180 countries joined the #climatestrike !We told world leaders to unite behind the science and take action now.
They didn’t listen.
So we go on, every Friday. The next global climate strike is Nov 29, and we need everyone to join!

Greg Jericho, on 30 years of political inaction:

“[I]f your anger is directed at those protesting rather than at parliamentarians then I suspect you have consigned yourself to expecting nothing to change.

That’s fine, but own it. Realise if you are annoyed by them it’s because you have become more annoyed by protest than a lack of action.”

This #IndigenousPeoplesDay, we remember that indigenous people and their territories are at the frontline of some of the worst environmental and climate disasters.

I'm surprised they don't have an emoji for Native Americans (the Continent as a whole).

@hyperspacedev After the 1.0 update on macOS Catalina, Hyperspace launches without any window. The menu bar is active but none of the commands does anything (about, preferences, new window, new post, etc). I tried clearing everything from ~/Library that contains hyperspace in the name, still no go. Any ideas?

This bit of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez's speech at C40 is a clinic on how not to waste any words.

Please listen to the words of @NakabuyeHildaF , a founder of Fridays For Future in Uganda.

Good to see The Guardian's editorial on Friday that made clear they are siding against polluters in the ongoing discussions around the climate crisis. They call it "days of reckoning" and I love this kind of tone. It's coming up more and more lately. I'm also thinking of Greta Thunberg's "Right here, right now is where we draw the line."

@tootapp Why does the scroll bar not go all the way to the top? I keep getting tripped up thinking there are more messages left to read than there really are.

The huge, proposed new fossil gas terminal in Göteborg has been denied its final permit and will not be built because of the climate crisis.
