@nilix from honk to shonk, launching this sharkey instance to provide a platform for earnest conversation and digital cross-sectional community building. We will see where it goes. Invite only while we work out the kinks, probably registrations with approvals down the line.

For those i follow, expect a follow/request soon as i start using the instance :3

Look at this cutting edge web UI. This is what we are missing out on, with all your fancy frontend frameworks. Actual useful information!

Screen shot of a website that is just a big table with two collumns. In the left collumn are dates, and times, of shows that are happening. In the right collums are  blue underlines links that read "Book Now"

That is all there is. No other bloat.

Anyone got a spare rpi or similar they would be willing to part with (for reasonable payment ofc)? Gotta rebuild my #homeserver and prefer not to buy new hardware where possible.

Once libraries are nonexistent any modern fascist movement wouldn't even have to burn books, but flick one switch and they'd be remotely deleted from your Amazon Kindle or similar digital “library”.

Capitalists are already building the infrastructure to do this through DRM, so stop believing tech is apolitical - the defunding of libraries and paywalling of information are all part of this.

a deep concern that I have with software development is how alienated it is from the communities in which engineers live. they work on central platforms that are hosted "in the cloud", the work is unplaced and detached from material surroundings. an alternative world would involve a much stronger emphasis on infranets, community-owned and hosted infrastructure, "platforms" limited in scale and targeted towards the specific needs of a specific place that they are in relationship with

@aral this is why FLOSS advocates & hackers should work with doctors, schools, real estate agents, activists… and teach them about privacy & decentralization - while learning from them about real-world use cases for “our” ethics & principles

Distributed Press is at Fediforum this week!

Distributed Press is at Fediforum this week!

Distributed Press is at Fediforum this week!

We're thrilled to be at Fediforum this week to present our latest tools! For the past year, we've been working on bringing distributed hosting to the Fediverse, to create better, more customizable social interactions built atop ActivityPub.

Come check out our talk on Wednesday March 20 in the morning, around 8:30am PT / 11:30am ET (the overall schedule is here).

Here's a sneak peek of our presentation:

  • No-code publishing to the distributed web: Sutty CMS is a graphical, user-friendly interface for static Jekyll-based websites. With a click on a toggle, you can publish your websites to IPFS, Hypercore, and of course, HTTP.

  • Social Inbox: Publish a profile and post your website's contents directly to the Fediverse. Other accounts can follow your websites, and replies to your Fedi posts can be moderated and published on your for sites through a back-end moderation panel on the Sutty CMS. It also allows instance-level allow lists and block lists. We've automated announcements so others can easily subscribe and follow your website posts on the Fediverse.

  • Social Reader: A new ActivityPub client that supports natively loading published data over p2p protocols, skipping the need for always-online HTTP servers for accessing content. It also gives you more precise controls over the content that you interact with.

We'd love to connect with you!

Especially if you're building or strategizing around:

  • Payments and sustainable funding on the Fediverse

  • Peer-to-peer and distributed publishing

  • Fediverse adoption by medium to large organizations

Hope to meet some of you there!

Anyway, if you are interested in supporting a sustainable, long-term project that plants regionally owned and operated data cooperatives with an emphasis on economic interdependence, mutual aid, and mutual benefit consider contributing to our community #OpenCollective https://opencollective.com/zinc-community#category-CONTRIBUTE

Sure, we ain't a microblogging platform (because omg the cost to benefit ratio is whack on those) but we do offer high-benefit/low-cost systems that help communities break free from extractive tech.

The GC is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Xe maketh me to lie down in free pages;
Xe leadeth me beside the tagged pointers.
Xe restoreth my memory;
Xe leadeth me in the paths of finalization for Xyr name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of malloc(),
I will fear no memory leaks; for Thou art with me;
Thy mark and thy sweep they comfort me.

The idea that employees are so mentally fragile that "feeling overwhelmed" is a reason to be absent is bonkers. Everyone feels "overwhelmed" every now and then. That's not an adequate reason not to show up for work!

lmao uh oh. dhh, buddy…

This article completely misses the possibility that “feeling overwhelmed” can stem from life outside of work. Here in Finland (and likely other EU countries), you are entirely within your rights to take sick time off for mental health reasons (https://yle.fi/a/74-20070305).

Not every day is going to be magical at work. Some days you really do just have to power through. And if you can't, then use some paid time off to recover. Taking it out of the same allowance that someone else would spend on a holiday.

Yeah, no. Sick days and vacation days are entirely different. You go on vacation to take a break from work, not to recover from an illness.

Sure, this wannabe-Gilead stuff sounds goofy AF, but *fortune favors the prepared mind*. These troglodytes have an existing network. They have capital. They have a more or less clear sense of what they want to do, and the order they want to do it in. And you better believe they will have a sufficiency of people willing to do the foot-soldiering. We mock them at our peril. https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/inside-a-secret-society-of-prominent-right-wing-christian-men-prepping-for-a-national-divorce

It's a simple problem:

Either capitalism, particularly extractivist fossil fuel capitalism, goes, or a planet that can support 8 billion + people does. There is no third option, and yes, the rich people, including the political class they have bought and own, have already picked capitalism.

Fight, or die. Revolution, or extinction. Maybe you can win without violence, but don't pretend the other team has any qualms about force, fascism, and murder to keep their power. They tell you so every day

so I somehow deleted the WHERE clause in the subquery that populates the Plan node... so it took 3 hours because it was populating for every plan in the system...

should have diffd with the original again after refactoring, I might have caught it way earlier :')

Well it doesn't run out of memory after 12 minutes anymore but I don't think this qualifies as an improvement...
