#FaustianFriday
The legend of Pan Twardowski, this Polish folklore tale shares parallels to the story of Faust.
Pan, a sorcerer makes a deal with the Devil, sells his soul for unique powers akin to necromancy which leads Pan to a tragic finish.

The Low Tech Webring has been updated for Autumn and we have some cool new sites: emreed.net/LowTech_Directory.h

This is the first update using Onionring, which is a webring tool that should hopefully make my job easier in the future. If you were in an earlier round and have a static HTML banner it should still work unless I get in touch with you about a URL change. garlic.garden/onionring/

If you're an existing member and want to try using the onionring code, just let me know and I'll send it to you :)

new addition - integrated my time tracker, Scalzi, into a website. porting it from PHP prototype was painful!

#introductions
Hi, I'm a newbie, Phd candidate (University of Warsaw, Poland), interested in various aspects of the anthropology of technology. I wanna find out whether it is possible to organise the internet differently, so I study alternative and independent sm platforms, cyberculture, utopian projects as well as public policies and digital agendas.

pushed the new site. no too much on it, but it finally gives me room to expand

working on a simple static site generator, now featuring directory and two row navigation!

only picked up python yesterday, so there's still much to improve

an important report has just been published by my friend emmi: The Decentralized Web of Hate

"Fascists (and other bad actors) are [...] hosting manifestos resiliently, raising money anonymously, communicating securely to organize attacks, sharing weapons plans, and networking to build out their numbers."

"We cannot abandon p2p technology but we also can't ignore the risks. The only way out is through."

unexpected rabbit hole found during G-Drive cleaning:

some person's incredibly detailed dream log, along with sleep data, interpretations, commentaries, proper tagging and experiments with lucidity!

i can't recall how i got a copy, but i'm pretty sure it was publicly shared (given the prompt for comments)

met a very nice japanese owner of a manga cafe, he was very surprised polish people play mahjong, hah

seeing another dev i really like, Ed Key (of Proteus fame) mostly posting videos from Cumbrian wilderness nowadays makes me think that pivoting from games to nature is a natural progression

Michel Ancel stepping away from game development is a sad news as his works were huge part of my childhood

He's involved in wildlife sanctuary project now though, so it's kind of a step up, right?
