2 strange dreams.

One with a poltergeist. So lifelike that I was convinced ghosts actually existed when I woke up. Secretly asking the ghost to make a sound if it really existed. Almost shat my pants when a sound came back.

Next dream was me endlessly wandering around a co-working space looking for my cubicle.

This is what Capitalism addressing the climate crisis looks like. A cynical pantomime of drafting performative measures with words like "Renewable" and "Green" in the title, whilst hoping nobody notices that it doesn't actually give a shit about climate science or ecology or.. ya know.. any form of life.

🇬🇧 Yesterday, the regulation on #chatcontrol was adopted by the EU Parliament: a sad day for all those who rely on free and confidential communications and advice, including abuse victims and press sources. This is how the Parliament’s groups voted:

In today’s vote, 537 Members of the European Parliament approved Chatcontrol, with 133 voting against and 20 abstentions. According to police data, in the vast majority of cases, innocent citizens come under suspicion of having committed an offence due to unreliable processes. In a recent representative poll, 72% of EU citizens opposed general monitoring of their messages.

Nice "democracy" you've got going on there EU

I finally set up an inprnt shop and have put up a few illustrated haiku prints, conventiently they're doing a 20% discount this weekend!! CW for illustrations: eye contact, food, mild gore/grossness 

Note: These are formatted differently to the prints i've previously sold myself. I'll still sell those prints, but this works out very conveniently for online sales :)

I think the most uncomfortable thing about dealing with Gamers™ and all the crap people are making for them, is how it's just the antithesis to hacker culture

People who define their entire identities by consumption, pride themselves on who can spend the most, consume the most, like kids on a playground waving their shiny toys about

All while worshipping and vigorously defending every whim of the corporations whose underpaid workers produced it, and fight holy wars in the name of brand loyalty

Just as I'm opposed to political fascism, I'm opposed to economic fascism. I think that until major institutions of society are under the popular control of participants and communities, it's pointless to talk about democracy.

Solar Protocol

A fun (art?) project that is building a network of solar-powered servers that work together to host a web site. Wherever currently has the most sun takes over the hosting.

Dunno how much of these things translate from art/fun to practical use, but good for raising questions and awareness about how we power our sites.

Would be interesting to combine Solar Protocol with distributed content on something like Hyperdrive or IPFS.

Joe Biden’s new anti-terrorism initiative classifies “anarchist violent extremists” that “oppose all forms of capitalism, corporate globalization, and governing institutions, which are perceived as harmful to society” as “domestic violent extremists.”

At their very simplest, anarchist beliefs turn on to two elementary assumptions. The first is that human beings are, under ordinary circumstances, about as reasonable and decent as they are allowed to be, and can organize themselves and their communities without needing to be told how. The second is that power corrupts.
-- David Graeber
