Have you seen this? An actual public appeal from a magician to get others to join in his magic to influence world events. This rebrand is extremely timely

Topic list here:
"The Green Anti-Capitalist Front is an alliance of groups and individuals united by a belief that capitalism is one of the core causes of the environmental crisis threatening us all, and that if we do not act soon the costs of that crisis will fall on the poor and powerless."
"We are calling for a broad anti-capitalist environmental movement based around the following points of unity:
1. An existential threat
2. Capitalism is the crisis
3. International class solidarity
4. Building collective power
5. Diversity of tactics
6. Horizontal, bottom-up structures
7. We need a new system"
"We do not have faith that capitalists – or their parliamentarian representatives – will act in time to limit climate change in a meaningful way."

Join Zoom Meeting
I'm starting a monthly video call, discussing tech, politics, the commons, enclosure, progress, regress, etc.
It's called Phantasms of Decentralisation, after a panel I was on in Berlin earlier this month.
The first one will be Saturday the 23rd March at 7pm UK time, 2pm EST for an hour.
Let me know if you'd like to attend, either to talk or just listen
What does it mean to say that thoughts are 7-dimensional structures in the brain? (as I've seen in headlines of new scientist articles that I am too cheap to pay for)
I'm familiar with 3 spacial dimensions, and a 4th time one. Time crystals are 4-dimensional structures in that they repeat like animated gifs. So viewed in 4 dimensions they're static.
What are the next 3 dimensions in this model? Are they things like magnetic intensity, rate of repeating etc?
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
(Manual retoot from @firstname.lastname@example.org ) "what are your favorite platforms for decentralized decision-making? #loomio has cool voting features, but it seems like you can't organise threads into categories. discourse might be better for discussion but with limited polling features. what do you use and why?"
This is for my project https://wobbly.app , we're looking for a medium speed communication service (i.e. slower than discord, faster than github)
Cooperative technologist, Code-Operative.co.uk, Wobbly.app
Mastodon instance for attendees of Refactor Camp, and members of various online/offline groups that have grown out of it. Related local groups with varying levels of activity exist in the Bay Area, New York, Chicago, and Austin.
