I've been building a Facebook Events style event organizing system for the Fediverse. It's based on the simple, open source, privacy-respecting event organizing tool gath.io

The attached video is a work-in-progress preview and shows compatibility with Mastodon. My hope is to get it working with lots of software, including stuff like Friendica that supports events and calendars.

Revolution of our time!

Self care is radical action 

From birth, we are expected to produce, produce, produce for the hope we can enjoy small and fleeting moments of peace and, maybe, fulfillment.

It is a powerful moment of empowerment to resist this narrative and take personal control of your own destiny to *ensure* your happiness, stability and well being.

In terms of healthy community, there are few things more important than consistent self care.

B/c you fucking matter. Not your ability to produce. You, a person.

Since mid-August in #Argentina's Chubut Province, teachers & other govt workers have been blocking highways used for oil transportation in the cities of Comodoro Rivadavia & Sarmiento to demand that the #Chubut govt pay wages owed since Feb & halt austerity measures more broadly.

Yeah English left you do need a Lenin... and they need to rise once Scotland and Northern Ireland end the UK...

Capitalist irony of claiming economic growth 

32.3% of the US economy is concentrated in just 31 counties, approximately the top 1% of counties in the country.

Elf on the Shelf is a fun and festive way to teach your child to submit to the surveillance state 

This Christmas, give the little ones a gift that keeps on giving – the fear that someone, somewhere is always watching them

Violent direct action is a good thing. Direct action that paralyzes or destroys infrastructure is a good thing. Making it so that capitalist institutions can not function is a good thing.
