We need to bring back floppy disks as a metric of how big a web page is. I just visited AdAge, and their pages are 15 MB in size ... or about the same size as Windows 3.11.

To see one article (with ads), you are downloading the equivalent of an entire operating system. ;)

I also wish the environmental movement would celebrate its victories instead of being all-negative all the time.

Like, this: "Deforestation declined a whopping 70% from 2004 to 2012. It has risen modestly since then but remains at one-quarter its 2004 peak."

That's an amazing achievement! Why have I never heard about it? Why aren't we all talking more about what strategies worked so well from 2004-2012 and how to replicate them elsewhere?

Tips for Bicycle Workshops wanted.

Our large co-op housing projekt (250 pers.) is working on a(n almost) car free mobility concept.

An important part of this is the Bicycle Workshop. I'd be glad to hear of your experiences of what did and didn't work with your community workshop.

The lack of revolutionary potential in most existing co-ops is one of the many reasons why cooperative/collective economic projects should already incorporate an inherently anarchist approach at the founding level, and options for long-term horizontal scalability via federation with politically & structurally compatible projects shouldn't be an afterthought.
Worker co-ops shouldn't be isolated. Instead, they should have the clear potential to be integral parts of a bottom-up needs-based economy.

The Mastodon GitHub repo currently has 3 open issues that could help moderators moderate better:

- Add a moderation API: let third-party devs build better tools for moderation, much like the various mobile clients.
- Add Locked account state: let mods to temporarily lock accounts (like a forum ban) without kicking the user out.
- Add public info about number of mods/instance: let people find instances with more mods/user.

I read a sentence like this: cooperative is governance, collective is management.

What is the difference between management and governance? They translate to the same words in Turkish.

I'm planning to install a instance on a . I mostly did development work and used SSD vps which is expensive for low disk space. Is there any reliable for hdd with higher disk space, like 100GB for $5 for example?

Yesterday the Italian minister of foreign affairs Matteo Salvini (who's also the leader of the xenophobic Lega Nord party) shared a short, but significant tweet: "Tanti nemici, tanto onore" (EN: "The more enemies, the more honor"). To witness a minister of the Republic tweeting a fascist slogan on the anniversary of Mussolini's birth marks a new low in the recent history of Italy: it means the neo-fascists feel powerful enough to drop their masks and roam the streets in broad daylight.
