reading: Preindustrial workers worked fewer hours than today's Show more
"The tempo of life was slow, even leisurely; the pace of work relaxed. Our ancestors may not have been rich, but they had an abundance of leisure. When capitalism raised their incomes, it also took away their time." — https://groups.csail.mit.edu/mac/users/rauch/worktime/hours_workweek.html
what's most striking about this is that all workers worked much much less in winters
If anyone has any ideas as to best keep the player updated with new content, I am all ears.
The player boasts 79-80 hours of use, which is perfect for me, as I almost am never not listening to something.
I just bought an mp3 player like it's 2005. It makes sense for me. My phone and my headphone batteries drain too fast, I don't use streaming services much, and I like having headphone jacks. Podcasts are going to be the real trick. Managing them without an internet connection is going to be interesting. The player has an sd card slot so I think I'll use a script to download podcasts to that and just manually update every once in a while.
Jose's whole thesis-
So since I've been hearing the DHHS has been shutting off their fax machines, I say we mail them shit. So here's some political postcards for you. Feedback would be appreciated, let me know if the messaging is good.

We're going to send a million fucking postcards and drown the #HHS in mail and they'll back the fuck off in the face of the postal onslaught.
Here's a PDF of a 4x6 postcard https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/lucan/Postcard4x6.pdf
And here's A6 for people who use metric https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/lucan/PostcardA6.pdf
A letter is better, but a postcard is good. Get all your lazy allies to put their names down! We're going to win.
Just had to make a thing to distract myself so why not that?
I need sleep. I just made fake pamphlets/handouts made by a fictional group called "The Bone Suspicion Committee". Why? For what purpose?
Technological progress is defined by an increasing openness of systems whether it be knowledge, tools or services. Anything that does not increase openness is not technological progress, it is technological confinement.

Starting to see some stuff going around in different cities, and I’m going to put a list together, as well as phone, email, and geographical resources for reaching out to the DHHS OCR.
If you’re planning an action, please let me know— a lot of people have asked me about actions in other cities, and I’m not an organizer or with an organization, just a mad as hell person who wants to protect her friends at all costs, so fill me in!
Also a few snake "don't tread on me" flags about. Trying to figure out how to get rid of those. I want some kind of direct action that will mark them for who they are in a creative way that shames them.
There's a house near me that def is MAGA. They have the hat on one of their car's dashboard. They also have stickers on the back of said cars that are blue US flags that say something along the lines of "free because of the brave" or something stupid. My plan: recreate these stickers, but have the text changed. "I voted for him and I don't care who he hurts" or something harsher. The idea is that it will be a more overt signal that but it looks enough like the originals to pass notice.
Hey friends, I need some txt files that are in line with "baby's first union" kind of things. My idea is to load these onto a wifi enabled board, which then will "hand out" the info to whoever is looking. Thoughts?
I also realized that this system could just serve up txt files of literature, keeping it small. With the esp32 being so cheap, you're essentially designing an electronic "pamphlet handler", that can serve up union literature without identifying the users.
Also since I'm not fluent with Arduino, I'm happy to see the ESP32 can now run micropython and circuitpython. It will make the baseline for this idea easier than setting up whole environments (raspi) or using something I'm not as familiar with (Arduino)
