Hi! I found Mastodon through a New Yorker article ("What it Takes to Put Your Phone Away").
I have a degree that uniquely qualifies me for precisely nothing. So, I am teaching myself to program for a chance at a real career (also for fun!).
Mastodon fits nicely into my desire for a world that will move away from systems optimizing for profit and toward systems that optimize for wellbeing. I think our economy and its metrics need updating.
I like art, tech, and science.
New to Mastodon!
Just watched both John Wick 1 and 2 again. I am probably not the first one to say this, but I am sure that John Wick (and by extension Keanu Reeves) is this generation's Chuck Norris. We should start making "John Wick Facts" memes the same way that we had, and still have Chuck Norris facts. Stuff like "If #JohnWick has one bullet and you have 10 bullets, John Wick has more bullets than you."😀
The story behind this is that the Ecuadorean government tried to sell Amazon lands to oil companies for drilling. The Waorani, who live on those lands, took them to court over it, and they won.
The ruling "has created a significant precedent for the Amazon," said Lina Maria Espinosa, attorney for the plaintiffs, outside court.
"It has been demonstrated that there was no consultation and that the state violated the rights of this people, and therefore of other peoples."
An estimated 50 million tons of E-waste are produced each year. The USA alone discards 30 million computers each year. Linux can help reduce this problem by giving a second life to laptops and PC's. It takes volunteers like many of us here to help people to install Linux and provide them with a fully capable second hand PC.
