Hey if anyone likes community radio stations
I'm building a little app for listening to them in the browser. Kind of like a car radio dial but for the world.
or on dat
nothing fancy but there's 500ish radio stations there most of them work
PRs to this file if you want to add stations
or edit your local dat version directly
The intro post I've never made:
Hi I'm Tulsi, a queer trans woman, currently living on land stolen from the massacred Susquehannock people.
I recently quit my job making mapping software for electric/gas/water utilities.
I'm figuring out how to support myself while doing work that supports resilient networks of autonomous communities arising from mutual aid and trust.
I have a deep faith that there is a future for humanity that's worth fighting for.
Here for conversations with comrades
you know, if #peertube had listened to the POC who were telling them MONTHS AGO that they needed to prioritize moderation tools more highly, maybe there would be more PT instances that aren't complete cesspools
just a thought
Personal, Getting passive aggressively shut down, does this happen to yall?
Has anyone ever told you to "just turn it off" or asked "why do you always have to do this?" when like, youre out doing something thats supposed to be fun, but then you get news, or have been following something globally and something devastating happens?
I keep having white people I consider friends tell me to "relax" and just "not think about it", whenever I bring up in discussion something that i care about immensely that also happens to upset me, and thats often their response. Its as if I then become a burden to them simply for caring. Its cool to know they are capable of "turning it off" and tuning out, because its not possible for me.
I feel like this isnt just me, and it happens to people a lot.
#OpenStreetMap is an inherently political project. We're trying to change the way the world collects, and shares map data.
The fallacy of techno-solutionism
This presentation was fantastic. It's great to hear someone talking about the things I've complained about until I'm blue in the face...and no one seems to care about.
This is the talk I live-tooted about two weeks ago, it's finally online as of a few days ago.
Nanjala Nyabola - Where Do Broken Rights Go?
Tech is creating human rights challenges, and making it more expensive to be poor. Fight back, damn it!
Being a police/prison abolitionist isn't just a trendy cool thing and its certainly not a "I'm More Radical Than You" position to hold just for the hell of it
You have to be dedicated to harm reduction and taking on the responsibility of being a neutralizing force in the face of conflict, and knowing that calling security/cops can actually increase harm, trauma, etc
There's a misconception that you can "store things on the blockchain", let alone perminantly so. No: blockchains just gets everyone to agree on the same order of events, the same "merkle-tree".
To store data peer-to-peer you need a Distributed HashTable. And to store data perminantly, just save it to your harddrive! Seriously we don't have better solution, and I've heard it argued nor should we.
This morning I will describe how DHTs work.
