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
dat://e23a16781465a4a8f3607c82a7ee60f0866aec108f4f0ded21978c2753a1efb1

nothing fancy but there's 500ish radio stations there most of them work

Pinned toot

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

The revolution is providing

food (fresh and local)
housing (warm and personal)
healthcare (holistic and kind)
energy (clean and reliable)
communication (open and private)
transportation (global and efficient)
safety (personal and community)
and more besides

for everyone, for free, for ever

It's the anniversary of Pulse and it's awfully quiet.

As it always is.

The victims of Pulse were Black/Latinx and often at the intersection of both, including MANY Puerto Ricans. My auntie had to help a friend from her church prepare for a funeral of one of the victims.

Stop use the word tribalism, kthx

And here's a twitter thread that explains what you actually mean if you're saying tribe anyway

and as it says, Natives can say tribe. this is for all the rest of y'all and the weird ways you say that word and related terms. It's really... gross honestly.

Me prepping: "how to make poptarts at home"

Here's another eye spy. Where are the butterflies in the garden?

Update on this situation: the Free Store crew has announced they'll be seeking a new location. If you've already sent mail, don't worry, it'll definitely find its way to them. But otherwise, please wait until the new address is picked out. Needless to say they'll be needing monetary donations now more than ever

I'll keep you guys updated as this develops. Please spread the word and help keep this wonderful project alive!

Hey guys, super shitty news. You may remember me talking about the Birmingham Free Store, an awesome radical space that provides in my hometown by collecting and giving away various things donated by folks in Bham

The landlord for the building has been working on the roof lately, and didn't properly secure the tarp before rain came last night. The store is now flooded, with much of what was inside - including the entire library section - destroyed beyond repair

They really need help right now, however you can. For cash donations, their patreon and venmo are both @bhamfreestore, and if you want to mail books or anything else their address is 3114 27th St N, Birmingham, AL 35207

Please boost this, and copy to other media if you'd like. This is an incredible space and it deserves our help!

@reclus I looked at the EULA ( wikiroutes.info/manual/en/agre ), and it's bad. The company (#Wikiroutes) owns all data you submit, they can change the EULA/licence at any time, they (and only they) can use it commerically. The only way to get the data is to contact them to ask about prices.

#OpenStreetMap on the other hand, is an actual community project. If they used #OSM's copyleft licence (ODbL), they wouldn't be able to do most of that.

I smell just another company looking for sharecroppers

Most free (libre) software is also gratis, but not all! Some free software costs money, but with it comes all of the freedoms to share with your neighbor and make modifications! Buying free software ensures that our traditions can continue, and donating to gratis projects does the same.
