SBC meta, Quick poll re letter about datamining
SBC was recently one of the instances datamined by researchers at the Univ. of Milan. Some people from Scholar.Social, & others, are sending an open letter from Masto community to Univ of Milan, & are asking who wants to co-sign. They are sending the letter on Monday. The letter & current signatories is here: https://www.sunclipse.org/wp-content/downloads/2020/01/open-letter.html.
Are you happy for the SBC admins/mods to sign this on behalf of SBC?
Please reply Yes or No

UKPol, Police Surveilance, Counter Terromism, Leftist groups
Oh shit like half the leftist groups I am involved with are on here:
The state is so paranoid. They literally think we are terrorists.
Little do they know I am mostly into gardening and making out with my friends.
I see mods suspending racist sexist dipshits all the time, but I hardly ever see racist sexist dipshits in my tl. I often confirm the racist-sexist-dipshittedness of these people for myself when a mod announces a suspense, and indeed, they are *always* racist sexist dipshits.
So thank you, mods, for so vigilantly suspending the racist sexist dipshits, that I barely realize they exist on here.
I really like the politics of the Climate Strike group I went to. They are anticapitalist and intersectional.
We're doing a rolling picket action on Oxford Street this Saturday, meeting at 1pm at the Oxford Circus tube station. There'll be actions in front of several business that profit from and encourage eco chaos in the UK and in exploited countries.
I started learning sewing to craft some #bikepacking bags.
My frame bag is starting to take shape as a cotton prototype.
Now I have to find some proper waterproof fabric. DIY bag-builders are often using Xpac, it seems fragile but the weight would be a big plus
However, proper weatherpoof seams are still a mistery, should I seal them with silicon?
For the closing system, a zipper would be straightforward, especially if I use Xpac but I'd love to try a rolltop bag someday
Next sewing project for the bike will be a handlebar bag, I'm wondering if I should design a basic one or start with a triathlon bar setup (the tri-bars help a lot when doing long distances and multi-days sooo...). Also tri-bar setups looks cool and give more space on the cockpit to hang gear from ;p
metalhead, anarchist, vegan. i fucking love space.
