@peregrine a little rowing dinghy that can raise a small sail would be a ton of fun!

@rezmason !! Will read it tomorrow and will let you know some feedback.

@ritualdust It's starting to look like one of these marble gravity puzzles thingies. It's coming along nicely.

@dualhammers yeah, especially when you live in a tiny box.. you need to move 10 things to get to another thing. You know how it is with the vanlife anyways..

Today, 9front has deleted Python, making the OS eighty megabytes smaller in one commit.

Thanks, Ori!

Going back in the water tomorrow morning, the boat is a MESS.

"Where's the wood glue?!"
"It's next to the olives and the bike locks, in the bathroom"

@Erjaeger Oh my, that's horrible :/ Good luck with this challenge.

I say this because having a digital zettelkasten system with good mobile support would be nice but letting some random VC company hold it hostage sounds like a very very bad idea

@l03s @calcifer @rra @solderpunk @viznut I read the paper this morning and it's great, it was enlightening, it helped me create a mental distinction between perma tech, collapse tech and adaptation tech.

Looking forward to tomorrow! Good luck.

Tomorrow and Tuesday, the Computing within LIMITS workshop takes place.

I'm presenting a paper based on a discussion on Mastodon, started by @calcifer about terms related to sustainability and computing. I'm starting with a discussion of 3 historical terms from the 70s, rooted in anarchism, anti-technocratic critique and human-scale technologies, after which I dive into LIMITS related and grass roots terms, ideas and their associated practices.

Link to paper: computingwithinlimits.org/2021

Lurk instance is well represented, @rra is there, in paper session #3, with a discussion on degrowth and ICT, focusing on Low Tech Magazine's design choices and most importantly, why it sometimes goes offline:

Many thanks to @solderpunk @neauoire @viznut and @calcifer for their kind contributions!

14 - 15 June, from 16.00 - 20.30 CEST


Spent all morning reading the papers, my head is whirling.

"I'll make a sound that's so alone that no one can miss it, that whoever hears it will weep in their souls, and hearths will seem warmer, and being inside will seem better to all who hear it in the distant towns.

I'll make me a sound and an apparatus and they'll call it a Fog Horn and whoever bears it will know the sadness of eternity and the briefness of life."
