#introduction: Hi! I spend a lot of time thinking about alternative (modern; legal; hybrid; non-hierarchical; cooperative; empowered; equitable; sustainable; collaborative; impermanent; impactful) organizational structures through which folks can make the world a better place.
I also make music, write on my blog, play with video art, and play games with friends.
Nice to meet you! 👋
I would post what I’m working on here like everyone else but it’s not really that interesting for other people. It’s stuff like: “Digging into the IRS grant making regulations. Wow, what BS!” … “Ah, breakthrough! Grants are just reimbursements but in reverse!” …or maybe “Damn, my working boards as cooperative governance idea won’t work. I just learned about the 49% rule that limits the number of interested directors :(“ #theWorkshop
“Rather than letting our negativity get the better of us, we could acknowledge that right now we feel like a piece of shit and not be squeamish about taking a good look. We could smell that shit. We could feel it; what is it’s texture, color, and shape?
We can explore the nature of that piece of shit. We can know the nature of dislike, shame, and embarrassment and not believe there’s something wrong with that. We can drop the fundamental hope that there is a better “me” who one day will emerge

I setup a little image swapping feature (no js) so that low res images can load by default, but if you really want to see higher res, and have the bandwidth, you can click the little dot on the top left.
So far I'm just testing on the homepage, but I intend to use it throughout.
The no-js method was borrowed from how our webring hide/shows rss links.
Abolition calls not for just a “negative” justice, but the germination of something new. The movement goes beyond destruction, to construction; beyond dismantlement, to cultivation; beyond justice, to liberation, and transformation toward a future where all can thrive.

there's a new grid thing on the market which heavily promotes monome compatibility: in effect, freely tapping into our huge pool of resources and culture by implementing a simple protocol we open-sourced from the start.
something is deeply broken with peoples' perception of open-source. it's not an infinite commons. it's not an externality.
it's a community and an ethos. if you're exploiting someone elses' work for profit, you're helping destroy an optimistic vision of humanity.
