Open-sourced blueprints for civilization

Using wikis and digital fabrication tools, TED Fellow Marcin Jakubowski is open-sourcing the blueprints for 50 farm machines, allowing anyone to build their own tractor or harvester from scratch. And that's only the first step in a project to write an instruction set for an entire self-sustaining village (starting cost: $10,000).

Hey everyone! starts in 2 weeks, so I just wanted to go over something before people get too far into planning their actions

Remember that is an and movement. If you support sustainability, but you don't recognize that an end to consumerism, exploitation, and hierarchy is necessary for that to happen, you're not solarpunk, you're just green

We won't be accepting submissions that involve campaigning for any political candidate or making an excessively consumerist purchase (i.e. buying a Tesla wouldn't be accepted, buying a bike and selling your car would; buying a portable solar panel for hiking trips wouldn't, but buying a small solar panel setup to get your apartment off-grid would). Use your common sense and we'll use ours

Once again, we're available to answer any questions you have, either about these rules or just helping with your action! Happy planning :greensun:

0_O I've also got a philosophy MOOC starting....

If I get caught up on everything by next week I'm going to do some digital citizen science volunteering.

My Teach Yourself Esperanto book arrives tomorrow and I have a Japanese class scheduled for the 23rd. Then there's several livestreams scheduled, macroeconomics homework, tending the greenhouse etc. Busy week coming up.

Dudleya cymosa. Also known as a "live forever" this is a very pretty succulent which grows in California and the southern parts of Oregon. Some sub-species are considered locally threatened.

Sadly, because they're such strikingly attractive plants, they're also targeted by poachers who abduct them from their native environments. Sadly, replanting them in the wild is difficult work.

Beekeeping isn't the only way to - solitary are just as important. Building a bee hotel can offer shelter for wild bees, and as a bonus they'll pollinate your garden for you style


Livestream party is starting very soon if anyone wants to join. We'll be playing FarCry New Dawncand hopefully talking about dystopia.


You have to defeat capitalismโ€™s final boss:

Half a million upper middleclass white people who earnestly believe theyโ€™ll be billionaires one day

Saw a photo of a plant copyright that said basically that it was illegal to reproduce the plant from clippings etc. and I laughed. I also suddenly had the urge to buy plants, grow extra from clippings and give them away. Thankfully my lack of money and transportation stopped me from doing something I'll never regret. *Still laughing*

doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive! In honor of the patron saint of beekeepers, here's a plan for a top-bar you can build out of a 55gal barrel and some pallet wood, plus a guide for trapping your own from nature! Happy Valentine's Day ๐Ÿ


๐Ÿ˜Œ I have so much to do before the lunarpunk livestream party tomorrow. ...
- gotta get through a boatload of macroeconomics homework
- finish up notes for livestream
- Set everything up
- accept the fact that I will screw up at least three times live because I am human
- accept that no one may show up and that's ok. A party of one can still be a party.

Remember. St valentine was the patron Saint of beekeeping. Celebrate valentines day the way it was meant to be celebrated by planting bee friendly wildflowers
