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?

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 prototype!

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.

How infuriating. Any #fediverse and #FOSS people know about open source hardware printers?

Well today was the day I finally unsubscribed from FLOSS Weekly. The final straw ended up being Simon Phipps asking a completely legitimate question about the guests feelings on corrupting influences in open source, and Doc Searls and the guest just laugh at him.

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 .


We've gotta send kids back to school so one day they can be doctors and scientists, and everyone else can ignore them too.

I can think of no better evidence of the current capitalist-cyberpunk hellscape that we live in than this...

I am subjected to watching advertisements on the gas pump screen, because god forbid I have 3 minutes of not being marketed to.

These HDMI capture devices are selling all over the web for less than $20. Picked this one up for $14 and have another coming for $11.

They work great.

Hey fellow podcasters! @cwebber @klaatu @thelovebug @ken_fallon @monsterjavaguns @Honkeymagoo I thought I would draw you attention to this link that is collecting Fediverse active podcasts. May be a good way to do a little promotion. communitywiki.org/wiki/Fediver

Do we have a directory of Fediverse podcasters? Maybe we should start one? If there is not, add yourself here:

Holy crap! I really need to get my .emacs file into something that looks a lot less like spaghetti thrown about the room. .

As an educator, I feel this πŸ’―. This stupid administration will have more blood on their hands if more schools are being held hostage to open in a pandemic.
