"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

-- Emma Lazarus

I don't have much to say yet other than...

Fuck the fucking Nazis and those who enable them.

Today is the 35th anniversary of the MOVE bombing in Philadelphia, where the City dropped a bomb on a black liberation group and blew up 60 homes.

Here's an excellent twitter thread on it with tons of links to resources.

I saw Janet doing the rounds on the internets in the past 24 hours.

I came across it several weeks ago, and it looks interesting, especially with the ability to embed it easily (a la Lua).

But for personal projects, I like that there's the Joy web framework and bindings to SQLite available. I've had the idea of running a dead-simple minimal wiki for my personal knowledge-base, and the idea of building my own with something like Janet sounds fun.

This shouldn't be possible.

AR-Cutpaste "copies" objects from around you in reality, using your phone camera, and "pastes" them on your graphic design.

Sometimes, every now and then software really feels like magic. Really clever.

Watch the video.

Does anyone have any advice for running an online #mutualaid group? It's one thing to start one; it's another thing to make it sustainable and as helpful as possible to those who really need it. "Start a Facebook group!" advice overlooks security and logistics issues with the site. A public mutual aid group I joined was quickly overwhelmed by too many posts and was predated upon by a bad actor. Really REALLY want to avoid similar issues if I end up organizing.

I watched the first part of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou,
@solderpunk posted about it:
tilde.zone/@solderpunk/1039985

it's pretty vibe-y and indeed very chill. I think some things about animation did not let me dive into it completely but I appreciate it as it is. I think we don't have enough of such things.

The Edmund Hillary fellowship in New Zealand seems to have good ties with their local indigenous community. Does anyone have any experience with it or similar programs?

I'm very interested in how to respectfully engage with indigenous communities to overcome global warming and other societal issues.

I've just managed to write my own document on why I'm creating Rhapsode: git.adrian.geek.nz/rhapsode.gi

It's a bit strongly worded! But I might build an (unstyled) website around it, Rhapsode seems ready for one.

Thoughts?
