9/11, US imperialism 

9/11 is coming up, which means i'm legally obligated to point out 9/11 here in chile is a different tragedy & also important

the 11th of september is when the chilean right wing (funded by the US gov.) bombed our gov. building, killed our democratically elected socialist president, gutted the welfare state & enacted martial law

followed by 17 years of a violent fascist dictatorship in which at least 3k people died, 40k were victimized and half of the country was traumatized

thinking about self driving cars, but the cars are longer, with capacity for about 90 people per car. and maybe we could simplify the decision-making of the AI by providing a set path and schedule that they would adhere to. perhaps a physical mechanism on which the self-driving car could always be on, something like a rail to minimize them going off path and being a danger to cyclists or pedestrians. anyone in Silicon Valley want to fund this? we could even chain the cars together to maximize efficiency.

Fascinating article about Soviet research that allowed them to cultivate citrus fruit in very cold (and sometimes too hot) climates. All of it without using greenhouses or any other kind of "active" processes to keep the trees warm.

Tim Jenkin: "[Mutual credit] creates a completely different spirit. We’re not just chasing this exchange medium, which is scarce, and fighting and competing with each other for small amounts of it. There’s no way of stealing the exchange medium, because it’s just numbers in an account, and there’s no need to fight, because it isn’t scarce." lowimpact.org/alternative-mone

In Sachen und Raubbau an unseren globalen Lebensgrundlagen gibt es meist nur Lippenbekenntnisse. Man dĂŒrfe halt nicht die Wirtschaft und die Menschen ĂŒberlasten.

Beim (der eine ganz ganz böse) geht es plötzlich um jeden Einzelnen und wir stoppen mal eben die gesamte Wirtschaft und alle Menschen.

Aber nukleare sind jetzt nicht so problematisch:

Are wood stoves equipped with thermoelectric generators more sustainable, more reliable, and less costly than power from solar PV panels?

"How does the newspaper know what it knows?"

Swiss Policy Research (2016):
The Propaganda Multiplier
swprs.org/the-propaganda-multi

Conclusion then:
"In this case study, the geopolitical coverage in nine leading European newspapers was examined for diversity and journalistic performance using the example of the Syrian war."

"The results confirm the high dependence on the global news agencies (63 to 90%, excluding commentaries and interviews) and the lack of own investigative research, as well as the rather biased commenting on events in favor of the US/NATO side (82% positive; 2% negative), whose stories were not checked by the newspapers for any propaganda."

2020: Hopefully, their journalistic performance is somewhat better today? :shrug:

@wxcafe so glad to see that "hacker" now means "install docker and run 1000 microservices to make a todo app" instead of, you know, using tech to topple power structures

And so the saga in Munich continues... zdnet.com/article/linux-not-wi - great to see that German gov'ts are conscious of the clear threats to their digital sovereignty posed by US multinationals and their proprietary tech... and their unethical practices: invidio.us/watch?v=duaYLW7LQvg
