Community-coined money! Radical money sharing transparency! Walkaway-inspired fiction! Rust in Javascript?? Pub operator advisories! Grassroots Work proposals! Returning friends! The Scuttlebutt community has got it all

Spending my morning writing a lil Python CLI tool.

I haven't written any Python code in > 1 year. It feels like going for a walk with an old friend: effortless, relaxed and comforting. This is nice.

@kensanata Remember a little while back when you were interested in the idea of smolnet propaganda? I found a short blog post by Bruce Sterling ( which ends with the line "My internet is substantially quieter than yours, and teaches me new things every day". I absolutely love this line! "My internet is substantially quieter than yours" is a wonderful catchphrase by itself, perfect for fans of Gopher, Gemini and pubnixes.

First automated documentation deployment with Git Hooks...feeling like a wizard 🧙

Jung Gi livestream. He's currently drawing Karl Kopinski (who is in the chat).

Karl recently had a bad cycling accident.

Global priority areas for ecosystem restoration - Strassburg et al. (2020)

"combining the retention of remaining natural ecosystems with the restoration of 30% of converted lands in priority areas would mitigate 71±4% of current extinction debt while sequestering 465±59 gigatonnes of CO2 — equivalent to 49% of all of the CO2 increase in the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution"

"restoration targets: results highlight the importance of including several biomes"

Bonus flush of Pleurotus ostreatus mushrooms from the buckets I started many months ago.

I moved these buckets outside after two flushes & removed the lids to allow the late-winter rains to rehydrate the substrate.

It's hard to tell from this photo but the attachment points of these clusters are between the bucket & the substrate (below the top surface).

Mushrooms often form at the interface between zones. In this case, a moist area at the edge of the substrate & close to open-air.

It takes me a long time to walk through this stretch at the many gorgeous flowers to stop and look at.
