Twitter is down globally now, and this is exactly why I think everyone should at least learn the *basics* of HTML and have their own website.

I know I'm preaching to the choir given the vibes of this town, but still.

- People should have their own websites
- Everything would be better if we focused urban planning around bike and public transport infrastructure

Software Doldrums
by Rek and Devine of Hundred Rabbits.

This talk, which was featured as a keynote at LibrePlanet 2022, is about the dangers and shortcomings of relying on always-online proprietary platforms. Hundred Rabbits will share how they reimagined their software to encourage the reuse, repair and maintenance of existing hardware.

Impressive what people can achieve with just 2 weeks and fundamentals. Again, +30 people learned an introduction to Python and made their way through a hackathon, making really good projects.

What I'm always thiking about with this experience is... how it constantly feels like it's a moral obligation for me to find a way to share the little things I know, generally speaking. Knowledge can never end.

And just like that, in 2 weeks we taught +30 people an introduction to programming with Python. And after three days of a hackathon, two groups of participants received a little bit of funding to work on their ideas. I can't really explain how proud I'm feeling right now.

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))
