I made my first firefox extension!
It adds a handy button to your toolbar for surfing sites on the #merveilles webring.
You can install it from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/merveilles-webring-surfer/
and you can read the source here: https://github.com/aadilayub/webring-extension
On identity, mental health, and biological essentialism:
"There is no essential self that lies pure as a vein of gold under the chaos of experience and chemistry. Anything can be changed, and we must understand the human organism as a sequence of selves that succumb to or choose one another."
from "The Noonday Demon" by Andrew Solomon
Climate protection contains two very important aspects:
What is missing and only climate justice contains is:
#ClimateChangeRemidiation: taking responsibility for and trying to undo some of the damage you have already done.
* Take measures to heal nature and #BioDiversity, like through #ReForestation.
* Take in #Refugees that have to flee from #Droughts and #Famine.
* Punish #Ecocide not activism.
* Pay #Reparations to countries that suffer the most from the #ClimateCatastrophe.
If you think that makes me an #Extremist so be it. I'll keep fighting for a better world for you and your kids and grandkids anyway.
What's your definition of climate justice?
What would you like to know about the #ClimateJusticeMovement?
I'd like to make it an inside look into the movement with lots of very personal accounts. I'll interview people I know irl, but also anyone here can participate if they want to.
What I'd like to know from you guys right now is what you'd like to read in the book. Obviously I already have some ideas, but I'm sure you can tell me some things I didn't think about. You can tell me suggestions for interview questions, facts that should be included, matters I shouldn't leave out or even ideas for whole chapters.
I'll first write it in German and I'll probably release the whole thing on #WriteFreely under a #CreativeCommons license. An Enlish version will follow and help with the translation will be appreciated. Because of the license anyone can translate it into other languages too.
Thanks for every answer and #boost.
Just a casual reminder of the solar punk manifesto: http://www.re-des.org/a-solarpunk-manifesto/
I guessed 44, the answer was 86 🤯
"Even though the World Wide Web has made hypertext commonplace, indeed ubiquitous, research continues to show that people who read linear text comprehend more, remember more, and learn more than those who read text peppered with links."

Don't know how to feel about this quote

You know what? A lot of folks don't want to do the work on themselves. That's it. They think they can just slap some labels on and think that's work enough. Maybe show up to a protest or two, or more.
You're Gonna Have To Make Yourself Uncomfortable. I'm sorry. That's it. That's literally it.
A couple of months ago I tooted looking for a vector grid-based editor. Nothing came up so we (Manufactura Independente) set out to make one.
It still has a set of kinks, but it's usable to the point that we've been using it to make a few designs.
We plan to release it in Feb/Mar under a free software copyleft license (AGPL). It runs on the browser with no server-side logic and no tracking.
If you'd like to try the beta and tell us about your experience, that'd be fab! Just reply to this toot and we'll get in touch.
Trying to implement dark mode in my bookshelf hyperdrive 🌓
"In college and in my early twenties, music forums and blogs run by individual critics proliferated. [..] it was through them that I heard new music, formed my tastes, and learned how to listen [..] the blogs [..] were surrounded by an even larger network of mp3 blogs, sites that simply made albums available for download, so that I could listen to everything I was reading about.
When people talk about the lost promise of the internet, I think about this little music blogger ecosystem. "

Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
