Henlo frens, please share your favorite guides / overviews over the fedi-protocols (ActivityPub, ActivityStream, RDF, OWL, ...?),.
I've been looking at SemApps (https://semapps.org/docs/guides/activitypub) and just chasing things down from there, but there is a lot that is still just unclear buzzwords for me. Thank you!

Finally put this up publicly on twitter so I'll post it again here.
Here's my new experiment in distributing writing: If you've written anything about DIY, small games, or anti-capitalist tech and transform it into a .pdf booklet, I'll print it and distribute it at cost for you through Plaintext Distro at online zine fairs https://plaintextdistro.neocities.org/
This is not (currently) a profit-making endeavor, to be clear. I don't want people putting themselves out too much to make new work. It's very old-school zine economics in that it's about the satisfaction of your work being out there in a different format and maybe breaking even.
If that's fine with you, especially if you already have work you distribute for free digitally and want to try something different with, then let me know!! I will do my best to be able to offer any submissions I get thru mid-March at the Glasgow Zine Festival in April.
Happy birthday, Wikipedia 🎉
Wikipedia turned 20 years old on January 15, 2021!
Wikipedia has contributed to free and widely available knowledge like probably no other platform. Showing the world the true power of collaboration on the open internet and what a great cooperating community is capable of. ❤️
"Civilization has never, not once in its history, allowed room for those who aren’t civilized to flourish. It’s to the degree that you might think this a defining characteristic of civilization: civilization is so afraid of being wrong that it simply cannot abide by others who live in other fashions."
Anarchists and abolitionists should not be be pushing for arrests. It does not matter that they are our enemies. We cannot be against cops, prisons, and state violence only when it is convenient.
Consistency aside, expanding the powers of the police state is only going to cause increased violence towards black people, indigenous people, non-white people, and the unhoused in the long run. They will increasingly target antifascist protesters and anarchists as well.

Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
