This is why whenever I write code, instead of a normal license like GPL I say "LOOK AT THE INSECTS, LOOK AT THE FUNGI" in all caps. Maybe someone will listen.
The more biology I read the more I think all anarchists need to study it obsessively. Humanity + technology + politics + economics should I think be viewed as a living system just as a forest is for trees or a biofilm is for bacteria. Our current industrial/economic system is like a colony of e-coli that's been replicating for like an hour and where the last 2000 years is basically the last 20 minutes....
Making a single beeswax wrap to see how well they work.
I converted a friend to anarchism "very quickly" with a video series and a book. Spread the word!
The series is great and accessible, the book is long, but also serves a great FAQ for common questions.
* This applies to any less-privileged group generalizing about a more-privileged group. "Not all white people", "not all straight people", "not all cis people", etc. - this applies to you too.
When women make a broad generalization about men*, stop before you reply "but not all men".
There are two options:
1) Make the broad generalization. Some men will have to stop and self-examine to see if they actually perform the behavior being criticized. Self-examination is good.
2) Specify "some men". This gives men who DO perform the behavior the excuse to say "well they don't mean ME". Enabling failure to self-examine is bad.
This is a beautiful statement.
#Bitcoin is made from ashes, and if ashes were legal tender, humanity would burn everything in sight and call it progress.
#Bitcoin must die
If Bitcoin were to cease trading tomorrow, 0.5% of the world’s electricity demand would simply disappear. This is roughly equivalent to the output of ten coal-fired power plants, emitting 50 million tonnes of CO2 per year – which would cover one year’s worth of the carbon emission cuts required to limit temperature rises this century to 2C.
This morning’s sketch. I just wanted to draw something kind. I’ll be finishing this one somehow, i just don’t know yet if I want to keep it digital or move it over to a traditional medium.
Open-source hardware - with its practical straight lines and flat surfaces, clearly designed to be 3D printed and CNC milled and taken apart and messed with/repaired by the end user - looks 5x as cool as curvy-ass generic corporate proprietary shit don't @ me

Remember, hierarchy breeds patriarchy, patriarchy breeds abuse, violence, and silencing.
This is as true for the left as it is for the right.
Don’t join organizations on the left organized undemocratically and hierarchically. It is impossible to maintain without abuse.
