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

Got my vaccine invitation from the state... I don't vote, but somehow I need the state to provide me this vaccine so I can fuck off out of this country. Oh the dissonance.

> In practice,however, wealth—and therefore capital income—in Germany is extremely concentrated. On average, Germans are richer than almost anyone else in Europe. The average German is about 50 percent richer than the average Italian and twice as wealthy as the average Spaniard. The distribution of wealth is so unequal in Germany, however, that the median German household is far poorer than the median Spanish household and only about as wealthy as the median Greek or Polish household. According to a comprehensive survey by the European Central Bank, Germans on lower incomes have less net wealth, in absolute terms, than low-income Estonians and Hungarians. Many Germans either have no assets at all or owe debts greater than the assets they do own.
