BULLSHIT JOBS: A THEORY by David Graeber is now #1 most downloaded text on The Anarchist Library in the past 30 days. Likely this has something to do with the Great Resignation. Let's go!

@rysiek Agree. Unfortunately however, a lot of emphasis is put on self-hosting rather than community hosting these days and "run your own stuff, it's not that difficult" is am advice much more common than "support a hosting community". Consequently, there's a lack of structure and culture of building and fostering communities, at least from what I see. Not even talking about communities doing more than "just" running software.

#OtD 30 Dec 1973 negotiations took place in space's "first strike". Skylab 4 astronauts turned off radio contact with mission control after complaining of overwork, micromanaging and no time to cultivate scientific curiosity. NASA denies this was a strike. libcom.org/history/1973-skylab

This guy has a ton of fascinating videos on permaculture. I need to see if I can find some more in depth analysis on the costs and returns, though.

UK judge green-lights #Assange's extradition to the US, granting appeal to the US on first instance decision to not extradite.

Just when you thought the Empire couldn't sink further down....

@striker i love how their text implies that the "vitality of the web" is at risk if people use normal blockers instead of their stuff

"Calm technology" seems right up the alley of a lot of folks here:

Technology should require the smallest possible amount of attention
Technology should inform and create calm
Technology can communicate, but doesn’t need to speak
Technology should work even when it fails
The right amount of technology is the minimum needed to solve the problem
Technology should respect social norms

What's wrong with (modern) computing?

- Computers spy on us all the time
- Computers are insecure, while pretending not to to be.
- Computers enable new modes of rent seeking, further exasperated by shitty patents and worse laws
- Computers/the modern internet encourage behaviors which are bad for our mental health as individuals.
- Computers and the modern internet, in concert with modern capitalism have built a world essentially without public spaces.

You know, all that bullshit.
