The other day I wanted to share a video.

YouTube wanted me to login, give them my real name, provide an email address (wouldn't take a throwaway for an answer) and a phone number to text me (I don't have a phone).

I went to a #Peertube instance instead. They accepted my throwaway email address and my video. Didn't ask for personal information. And the upload and video playback worked great.

True story.

So, thank you @Chocobozzz and everyone else who worked on Peertube.

Capitalism kills true inspiration and creativity. Capitalism kills real community development. Capitalism kills people. Anything and everything people have made under the capitalistic regime has been either out of strife or due to privilege, and is tainted by the structure it was created in.
No point, just had feelings.

Visiting Merida, Yucatan and visiting Chichen Itza un Sort of compulsory.

Besides the famious pyramid there is a huge cenote for which a photo doesn't do justice. (See the size of the tree besides me and the shadow they cast on the water some 30 meters below)

honestly though, mastodon instances are run and moderated by real people who care about the network, to the point of often paying their own money out-of-pocket to run their instances.

the *one* time i've had to report a post, my instance admin messaged me directly to let me know the action taken about it.

don't be shy to report. it works here. the rules aren't there just to keep things advertiser-friendly.

welcome to mastodon. don't be a dick. hug your local mods/admins.

Today, Waymo launched the first public self-driving taxi service:

It won't take long for them to start reducing the people employed as professional drivers (including public transit and cargo).

Being a professional driver is one of the main job sources in the American continent, this is monumental. There are two paths forwards: Socialism or Barbarism.

An anarchist collective calafou.org in Catalonia houses a DIY Bio #gynaecology group #GynePunk:

They are working on open hardware gynaecological tools and emergency kits, trying to decolonize a medical field which wasn't created _for_ women.

Their blog: gynepunk.tumblr.com/

There's a scientific paper about them: tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108

The start of the Calor Mutuo Cooperative in Mexico City with an introductory course to cooperativism and a "barter" (trueque, one cloth for one cloth) activity.

In summary:
- Exxon Mobile knew since at least the 70s about the potential harm caused by global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.

- In the 80s, they concluded that global warming would actually be good for profits; the polar ice caps would melt, making it easier to get at Arctic oil reserves.

- They started to collaborate with other fossil fuel companies to knowingly lie about CO2 emissions and its effects, in order to stop any global coordinated efforts to to prevent climate change.

Is there a good, no-university-login, non-google alternative to scholar.google.com?

I use it on the regular, but would love to move away from google if possible.

"Exxon spent millions of dollars researching [climate change]. It outfitted an oil tanker, the Esso Atlantic, with CO2 detectors to measure how fast the oceans could absorb excess carbon, and hired mathematicians to build sophisticated climate models... In a private corporate primer, they wrote that heading off global warming and “potentially catastrophic events” would “require major reductions in fossil fuel combustion.”

This beautiful garden monster will be next-summer's Mother Mullein. It's so majestic, I'm going to let it do its thing at the end of the raised garden bed instead of pulling it.
