The four eras of digital computing:
① Mainframe (centralised)
② Personal Computing (PC 1.0; decentralised)
③ Web/Cloud (Mainframe 2.0; centralised)
④ Peer Computing (PC 2.0; decentralised)
The PC 2.0 era is what some of us are working to usher in.
A proposed convention for engaging with write.as posts on the fediverse:
Hey, do you use @write_as ?
Do you want a comment box for your blog?
Good thing I wrote a tutorial on how to embed one, eh?
You can read it here:
found a legit incredible blog about obscure electronic games. beautifully observed write-ups of tons of games i've never encountered, such as this 1988 game by an afro-caribbean woman about subvertng and overthrowing a slave plantation:
Freedom: Rebels in the Darkness
or a 2500+ level puzzle game that is almost literally impossible to complete:
Literal deaths attributable to US government shutdown Show more
This is so sad and and these deaths could very well have been prevented if these parks were staffed and those young kids could have been turned away from restricted / dangerous regions by staff
This is why we fund natl parks and experienced staff who ensure safety / maintenance.
[The deaths follow a decision by Trump administration officials to leave the scenic — but sometimes deadly — parks open] (despite shutdown)
I get so much satisfaction from designing, managing servers and developing tools for my project.
Everyday, I feel like I get a bit closer to this wonderful solution where we completely control our media end to end.
It's hard as fuck and sometimes I get really frustrated, but it has been the most worthwhile project I've ever taken.
I've never been so sure about a particular project. I love working on this shit every day.
And it even federates! seriously https://write.as is beautiful and you should check it out if you've been looking for a simple and elegant publishing platform. So appreciate the ethos and model of it
Thanks @nutomic for the inspiration with your beautiful post about the Zapatistas
A few days ago I visited the Zapatista region in Mexico. The Zapatistas are anarchists who revolted against the government in 1994, and still control a large area. I finally managed to write a blog post about my visit, and it includes some nice art from their town.
There are a lot of pictures, so maybe don't open it on a mobile connection.
Hell. Yes. Check out these rad students from Portland Public School system fighting increased police presence and diversion of critical funds at their schools!
[“The millions of dollars in question could be used towards repairing our schools, as many are still lead and asbestos contaminated,” the group said. “The money could go toward trauma-informed school counselors, and training staff in restorative justice.”]
Government shutdown, venting... Show more
1) only good thing so far: ICE / CBP gestapo aren't getting paid. E-verify is down. w00t!
2) everything else is not at all good and ppl are suffering
3) fuck the democratic party... but their position is right here and they need to hold firm. We need to pressure them to do so
4) no stupid, fascistic, racist ass border wall. Not now. Not ever. This is not negotiable. Period
5) Trump is shutting down the govt. Plain and simple
Oh I do love reading a good book by a proper fire.
Cedar is a gorgeous fire starter
Oh hi there access to news feed that doesn't suck or involve a bunch of tracking or bookmarks or web browser shenanigans.
Thanks so much to The Intercept for including the entire article in your feeds!
Do folks on here have any favorite feeds? (especially ones that include at least a good excerpt and not just a link to website which sorta defeats a lot of the purpose)
Community organizer, computer programmer, unix nerd, anarcho-socialist (#nobot plz)
OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
