actually, though, i am looking for any suggestions or ideas that might help make the fediverse pleasant or otherwise easier to navigate
i'm working on a new project, basically an activitypub server that is mastodon compatible but quite a bit more lightweight by design (though probably not having things like a media server built-in).
i've completed large projects several times in the past, so this isn't a pie-in-the-sky project.
however, i do need info so what i'm making is actually Good
GenSpace: An open access community lab in New York. Previous classes have included:
- Genome Editing
- Plant Adaptation to Climate Change and much more. Check it out: https://www.genspace.org
I think that https://hackthebox.eu it's very useful to all those haxor n00bs like me that wants to test their initial abilities. Anyway It's useful for experts too.
#HackTheBox is an online platform allowing you to test your penetration testing skills and exchange ideas and methodologies with other members of similar interests.
HTB Network Lab currently has 92 vulnerable machines that You can hack.
The more the technology advances and becomes interconnected and complex, the less the non-technical public understands about the changes, its repercussions and the policies that come along with them.
Most people end up relying on stories present in the popular culture to understand the tech world around them: the well-polished product ads hidden in their favourite films, the lone genius-inventor legends, cyberpunk visions of a world with no privacy, but how much convenience.
Hey if anyone likes community radio stations
I'm building a little app for listening to them in the browser. Kind of like a car radio dial but for the world.
or on dat
nothing fancy but there's 500ish radio stations there most of them work
PRs to this file if you want to add stations
or edit your local dat version directly
This should probably go without saying, but "never talk to the police" and "never talk to management" operate on the same logic and you can't have one without the other
If you don't believe anyone should be imprisoned or executed, regardless of what they did, and that cops have no right to that power - you should also believe that no one should be tossed to the curb and left homeless, and that management has no right to their power either
(Doesn't apply to threats to your safety at work)
Here is opensource science stuff specifically geared toward soil testing
fuck the US government but here
for safety it seems like it's currently best to get results verified by a university lab if funds allow (no idea how expensive, some local govs also do these tests)

It's World Soil Day! To get things started, here's a page on how to create your own compost bin - https://extension2.missouri.edu/g6957 - There's many different ways to build composting areas, so feel free to keep googling the topic if none of the things described here work for you or your situation! #soil #compost #diy
What's the scoop on ambitious community garden projects? I've been thinking about how one could establish a community garden without dedicated land in a neighborhood by crowdfunding small gardens for everyone that have to donate part of the food produced to the community at large, homeless folks etc. "we'll set up a garden for you, but you have to give 50% of the produce to the project" tenants and people with limited space could put pots on the edges of pavement space, etc

@bedap this definitely something I've been thinking about. And something I think we need to be working on. If we're going to have a revolution and not just end up where we started we need to supercede capitalism in ever way. The lights need to stay on, the water needs to keep running, ems services need to be active, food distribution needs to happen, hospitals need to stay open, we need to figure out what society without prisons and police looks like
@bedap imo, infrastructure is the highest form of resistance. Sustainable infrastructure gives communities the ability to function outside of state and corporate control. If they control the electricity, the water, ect, they control lives. It directly gives people a way out of the system into autonomous control. Solarpunks need to talk a lot more about infrastructure.
