A Firefox and chrome extension that notifies you if a book you're looking at on amazon, goodreads, audible, etc. is available at a nearby public library, and gives you a link to reserve it

I dunno who needs to hear it today besides me, but recovery doesn't mean returning to your old self. There might be elements of it present but you're a new person now. If you need to mourn or grieve or be angry, you should allow yourself time to do that.

Honor your past but don't hold onto it too tightly. They did their job, now it's time to do ours and heal.

Hello everyone! I’ve been thinking of ways to contribute to the community and I came up with a Solarpunk Idea Generator, it generates solarpunk things you can do. I only have a couple suggestions so far, but I’d love it if people sent me their suggestions! I’d also like to add links to resources in the suggestion. Check it out and let me know what you think: alternativestrategies.github.i

You live in a small cozy apartment. Your neighbor to the left is a brain surgeon, the neighbor to your right is a fry cook.

Across the hall, the daycare center looks after the kids, it’s usually full of retirees, they get a lot of joy from the children.

You go to work. Your boss, yourself, and the janitor all make the same pay. You work to do a good job. This seems sensible.

After work, you take the train out of town, there are collectives there with fresh veggies and milk. You bring them some canning supplies, and hang out for a bit. You admire their agrarian lifestyle, but you love the city. You leave with a big bag of apples, you try to pay, but they won’t let you, money seems cheap. Next time you’ll bring your fiddle, you promise.

You miss the train, but there are plenty of busses. You get on one and find a seat. The person to your left is a plumber, the person to your right designs satellites, a singer stands, and begins to sing.

That seems right

#Glimpse (:gimp: #GIMP's fork) is I think a step in the right direction and a cool project.
This new name isn't yet carved in stone (until GIMP 3.0) so I recommend you all to vote on this public shared document, even if in favor of Glimpse (but please at least give it some thought and look at the other ideas too):

Feel free to ask me about the spreadsheet (I made it)

1. We are, unbeknownst to basically everyone and ignored almost entirely by the left, in the middle of the largest wave of revolutions, general strikes, riots, and mass protests since 2013, a wave which seems to be both moving and intensifying.

Moreover, ICE must be destroyed

I would like gay spaces without alcohol please. Gay libraries would be nice

Is it a great idea to strengthen communities and learn permaculture and healing plants and generating your own green energy and DIY internet? YES. These are all useful to prepare for the future.

But we should probably also learn how to do all these things in secret in the context of totalitarianism to feed and heal an underground resistance. If fascism wins or maintains a foothold anywhere - as it seems to be on track to achieve -, anything we can’t hide or defend will not be ours for long.

the kind of software you use isn't activism. the kind of media you consume isn't activism.

activism is activism and there's not a shortcut around it.

I am a big supporter of Small Tech: three line shell scripts, gopher holes, when websites render properly on a VIC-20, building your new PC tower out of the 10 year old PCs your neighbours recently discarded, solving your own problems without worrying about scale.
