Looking for recommendations from the Fediverse. I'm wanting to learn more about Cryptocurrency stuff and there is a glut for resources. Anyone have recommendations on good sources for learning? #Crypto

So I saw someone saying they were anti-anti-fascist. Bruh that just means you're a fucking fascist.
The "right" has decided that anyone who is against them is automatically Antifa, which allows them to ignore their real concerns. It's easier to apply a label that doesn't fit than it is to hear why they are protesting.
We're happy to share a few pictures of a #Pinecil prototype!
The Pinecil is our upcoming ~$25 RISC-V based soldering iron, powered via USB-C or the barrel plug.
You can learn more about it in the latest community update: https://www.pine64.org/2020/08/15/august-update-getting-into-a-rhythm-and-not-slowing-down/
Are there open source printers?
I try to be paperless as much as I can, however, it would seem that my partner wants a printer for her work.
Doing some research, it seems that many printer makers, HP, Canon, Epson, etc. build in obsolescence.
This, so much this. I really think this is why languages like Python have taken off in the educational space. There is a community that makes accessible documentation that makes it easy for nontechnical people to dip their toes in. I feel like there are better languages for learning but their documentation is written for those with a large tech knowledge base. Then they wonder what they have to do to get people to use their language...I'm looking at you #racket.
Do we have a directory of Fediverse podcasters? Maybe we should start one? If there is not, add yourself here:
