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
Capitalism can only justify labor which profits. Structures or institutions that cannot sufficiently monetize their operations whither and die except on a volunteer basis. Scarcity-immune goods and services, such as digital media, can then only be justified with the introduction of scarcity. A great deal of labor goes into introducing and maintaining scarcity where there is none, which can only exist by taking its own share of the wealth it extracts, cementing this gatekeeping as a shared interest between the owning class and this segment of the working class. Thus ads become a form of rent, the flicker of your eyeballs a form of payment for materials which have no per-use cost, and every plea to disable your ad-blocker comes from a hostage. Because capitalism charges us for survival, we find ourselves obliged to maintain the institutions that keep us employed, for in them we see the only means of living.
If you want a usable web, you want to end capitalism.
distributing software, rust
the install story for js apps felt radical: just provide a URL. the details and pitfalls of this are many, but it’s still a powerful syndication model for post-scarcity apps and tools.
the install story for rust apps is looking about as neat: just hand someone the binary. i can package and distribute server apps as a single file with virtually no deps, without asking for weird permissions, etc. coming from python and js, this is pretty cool.
How to Cry Biomechanically
Get used to your stomach expanding and contracting as you breath, in through your nose, and out through your mouth (and your chest stays stationary), you are getting used to diaphramatic breath. This is useful for when you need to calm down (we breath from our chest when we're anxious and from our stomach when we're relaxed / sleeping)
How to Cry Biomechanically
How to Cry Biomechanically:
First you have to figure out breathing with your diaphragm (not breathing from your chest - the top of your lungs, but from your stomach - the base of your lungs).
To do this, sit up straight, with your feet resting flat on the floor, then place one hand on your chest, and one on your stomach, below your rib cage. Then breath in slowly into your nose allowing it so your stomach goes out but your chest doesn't move.
There is open revolt in Iran and for some reason, no one seems to be talking about it.
Between white people appropriating like crazy, and CA wildfires killing the plants and their entire ecosystems, it's time this plant ceased being everyone's go-to for magickal work.
"... Due to the illegal over-harvesting of Saliva apiana in recent years in combination with increased, devastating wild fires on White Sage lands in Southern California, concern for the commercialized harvesting and distribution of White Sage grows as the wild populations of this species shrink in size.
Many Native American communities are requesting at this time that non-native peoples stop harvesting this plant from the wild altogether. As Native Americans have been the caretakers of this plant and the lands it grows on for countless generations, it is important that everyone respect and honor their request."

Any audio engineers/musicians out there in the fediverse??? 🎼
Any tips on recording vocals? This is a pretty general question on purpose but I'm interested if anyone has an interested tricks to recording good vocals in the home studio.
I'm not new to this and I have some good gear already. I'm just curious as to what fun stuff you have tried.
