Politics is not just for the mid-terms! If you have been energised/radicalised and are looking for some way to continue helping, ProgCode (join.progco.de) are a group of progressive coders and non-coders, working on tech for political change.

You don't need to be a coder to join, there's lots of ways for people of any background to help out, just fill out the registration form and get involved!

My own project, Wobbly (21st century worker's power), has been massively helped by ProgCode

What has Western anti-imperialism achieved in the past twenty years?

scum levels are 58% and falling

Weird that we call them the before-times, because it's only now that I look like the before picture

I'm currently living a revelation that I had 7 years ago in a tearoom toilet on an LSD-analogue, about the fractal nature of emotions

It was a lot more fun the first time round.

Today I have to force myself to go for a walk.

Back then, there was a rainbow spiral graph made of the arc from my piss

Would anyone be interested in some paid work on the Sculttlebutt clients Patchwork and Oasis?

UX and front end focussed. Occasional interaction with stuff further down the stack.

#scuttlebutt #p2p

we're seeing air horn levels at about 100%

Just remembered the time I saw someone being converted to Christianity in the free weights area of the gym, gives new meaning to the words "Jesus, give me strength"

This happens a lot, the innovations in political and social organising happen on the radical left, and then a few years later they're picked up by the radical right.

Structurally, QAnon is the same as Occupy from ten years ago. Because the technology that enabled Occupy has now after ten years become easy enough to use, by people who don't care as much about their beliefs matching reality

Being back at the office but by myself is not that different from working from home.

It's not back to normal, because there's nothing to look forward to.

Did you see the news? Scientists believe they've found evidence of life in Cardiff

Trying to win the presidency/prime ministership is chasing waterfalls. Wasting energy that you could use actually winning in a real domain.

Or, is the real domain pointless without the central position being taken?

I have a volunteer opportunity!

A friend of a friend is the program manager for www.lincolnfamilies.org
. It's a really good cause: helping underprivileged kids in the Oakland area not fall further behind due to missing school during COVID.

they're looking for someone to do some (pro bono) app development.

(I wish I could do this myself, but app development isn't one of my skills and I'm busy with other volunteering)

Contact me for details if interested.
Boosts appreciated!

Non-POSIX file systems 

https://weinholt.se/articles/non-posix-filesystems/

Operating systems and file systems have traditionally been developed hand in hand. They impose mutual constraints on each other. Today we have two major leaders in file system semantics: Windows and POSIX. They are very close to each other when compared to the full set of possibilities. Interesting things happened before POSIX monopolized file system semantics.

My life at the moment, while obviously not the same as jail, has jail-like qualities

Boost if you want a cooperative that builds open source means-of-production tech for mutual aid.

Fave if you want to join mine (in PDX).

Comment if you think it'd be a good idea but want more details.

"The singularity occurred in 1985" ok great I've got the headline, now to think of some way to justify the idea

Behold! Spider-Dog-Worm Theory! Thanks to my comrade and colleague @NormalPopsicle for assistance making it, and the original idea in the first place.
