Resources for the Town of Merveilles.
We chose to align ourselves with that of the solarpunk movement.
A demand for technology and society to re-center around sustainability, longevity, and balance with an emphasis on renewable energy.
A focus on decentralization, community activism, social justice, and civic empowerment.
A recognition that economic, social, and ecological injustices are all deeply interconnected.
We want to keep the instance small. The aim of the Town is to facilitate a discussion on the various projects created by members of the Merveilles community. To cover for hosting and maintenance, we suggest becoming a patron on our Patreon to allow for Somnius to dedicate time to keeping the instance working. Any surplus will be used to improve the platform and give back to the underlying projects.
This is a list of common hashtags and their meanings in the town:
#theWorkshop- Personal Projects
#theStudio- Currently Listening…
#theObservatory- Visual Inspiration
#theLudarium- Games and Interactive art
#theFurnace- Programming, closer to the metal
#theFoundry- Raspberry Pi, Arduino, IoT
#theVent- To express own frustrations
