Selenized is underappreciated color scheme. It's basically Solarized with reasonable contrast (and white and black variants as a bonus)

There are tutorials showing projects like the new NODE Mini Server, 3D print long range wifi antennas, how to chat via packet radio, and how to Libreboot the Thinkpad X200.

How To Be An Ethical Consumer:

- Don't buy from Amazon
- Spend half an hour researching where else you can buy the thing you want
- Order it from a small business
- The small business orders it from Amazon and just has it shipped to you
- Oh no
- There's no ethical consumption in a system with these fucked up power dynamics

If you’re looking for an ethical or open source or privacy-preserving alternative to just about any online service, here is a surprisingly comprehensive list: ethical.net/resources/

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

I spend a bunch of time enjoying work on youtube and wish it was a service that cared about people rather than profit

A bunch of folks are trying to create a post-capitalist alternative and I think that's rad.
