"Cette privatisation déguisée est projetée sans tirer le bilan de l’ouverture à la concurrence pour la fourniture d’électricité aux entreprises, en 1999, puis aux particuliers, en 2007 (3). La baisse des prix promise dans les deux cas n’a pas eu lieu. Bien au contraire : les tarifs ont augmenté de 60 % entre 2006 et 2020 pour les particuliers, quand l’inflation restait inférieure à 20 % durant la même période (4)"

Decided to add Esperanto to Metatext’s target languages on CrowdIn, if someone actually does translate it I’ll add a switch to set the app to it

Type theorists have written MILLIONS OF GREEK LETTERS and yet inexplicably have not produced a SINGLE VALID GREEK WORD

So, apparently #RMS is coming back to FSF and there's an open letter against that.

I've read the thing and they make perfectly valid points – but the thing I absolutely can't agree on is this implicit assumption that we as a community *need* "leaders".

We don't. And in fact it is this very assumption that enables these fucked up personal cults to emerge in the first place.

What I really like about the Southeast Asian Anarchist Library is that it became a platform for original translations. There wasn't a website for anarchist texts in Vietnamese before, now there is!

L'idéal pour les piétons serait de concentrer tous les drives au même endroit, en centre-ville par exemple.
On pourrait appeler ça "place du marché" ...

@unsuspicious two admins (users of ACP) are active but one is not listed. There are also two other mods that don't use ACP anymore but take care of meditation tasks. We should edit the list. Still, more help would be needed for an instance of that size. Anyway, it is under control, and as you can see, Emma is answering.

Deux polémiques à la con ce week-end : Trappes dont on découvre progressivement que le prof de philo a quelque peu exagéré sa situation, qu’il vient de démissionner de l’éducation nationale et que le maire de la ville Ali Rabeh, lui, est vraiment menacé de mort. Puis l’affaire dite « Molière » parce qu’il parait qu’on n’aurait plus le droit de toucher aux grands classiques sans provoquer une chute de civilisation. Comme si le texte était d’origine ... comme si personne n’y avait jamais touché

Wild how everyone forgot about the extremely suspicious circumstances of the Nashville bombing--and the contents of the packages he sent to acquaintances, where he supposedly outlined his views (regardless of their outlandish contents) has still not been released

What’s needed, then, is a leap of faith: from feeling gratitude towards corporations for funding open-source projects to questioning why we allow these corporations to amass the wealth that enables them to do so in the first place. What’s needed is a movement to resist the commodification of information in all its forms—[...]—and diminishing the power of these corporate giants in the process.

Heads up Synapse 1.26 final was released on Wednesday!! This is a massive release which should significantly improve state resolution perf, and adds support for Social Login (coming soon to a Matrix client near you), and other perf fixes. matrix.org/blog/2021/01/28/syn has the details

@hakan_geijer Agreed - the book is a part of our local medic community, not the other way around.

(Dunno if you know but there's a book-binder working near where I live that made a bunch of bound copies of your book, so around here it's not an uncommon item on the right folks' bookshelves :D) @kropot

Hey there! We get a ton of requests: for books to add to the audio library, to expand to platforms beyond SoundCloud, to read for us, etc. We welcome requests & feedback & are so happy people find Listen Left beneficial. If you listen to Listen Left & are a in a position to do so, we’d really appreciate support if anyone is able to subscribe, share, etc.
We need about 30 more patrons to cover the project’s operating costs -the subscriptions that enable the library & its creation & accessibility

Of course the fact that the hackers used American made browsers executing on American designed CPUs apparently doesn't make any of these companies complicit.

I used to stay silent on bs like this as I know appearing to defend anything Russian/Chinese apparently means you endorse everything each country ever did, (funny how that doesn't apply to the US tho).

I'll now start calling out bs like this more regularly. It needs to be called out for the xenophobic bs that it is.
