Why cows don't talk (except on mastodon and also they do talk, moos have a lot of meanings).

Just found out that yesterday was Earth Overshoot Day. This means that humanity has now used up all biological resources that Earth regenerates during the entire year. For the rest of the year, we are living on the reserves of Eath.

Generally, these books recoup and make a little money besides, but not nearly so much as I'd make if I sold through Audible. My agent tells me that if I'd been willing to set aside my ethics and allow Audible to slap DRM on my books, I'd have made enough money to pay off my mortgage and save enough to pay for my kid's entire college education.

That's a price I'm willing to pay. In the years since the Amazon acquisition, Audible has become the 800-pound gorilla of audiobooks.

When someone claims to have built a computer-powered "appliance" - say, a smart speaker or (God help us all) a smart toaster - that can only run certain programs, what they mean is that they've designed a computer that *can* run every program, but which will *refuse* to run programs unless the manufacturer approves them.

Another cool one is Earthstar : earthstar-project.org

This one is very early but have some working prototypes apps of various kind: a message board forum, a blog, etc. This project aims more at syncing files automatically, like Google Drive or Dropbox, but without a server. You own your data, no middle men, no tracking. I tried it: it works fine across the Internet but had problems to sync between computers on the same network. Hopefully things will improve soon!

Note: I'm not associated with any of these projects. I just think they are cool! If you also think they are cool, re-toot! 😄

Hypercore: hypercore-protocol.org : Hypercore is a protocol and framework to build p2p applications. Keet is actually based on that, not sure about Cabal. More interesting for developers than end users. They have libraries to holepunch easily, swarm, etc.

Beaker browser: beakerbrowser.com : A p2p browser. You can make your own website in minutes, and host it on your computer in the browser itself. No server required. Can be used to send large file. Not as reliable as the previous 2: I had difficulty to connect between computers.

Keet: keet.io : a newcomer released this week, but very promising: At the moment it's kinda like Zoom, Teams or Google Meet, with video/audio calls and text chat. Completely , totally p2p. The video and audio quality is top notch! Easier to setup than Zoom or Google Meet. No accounts required. Support sending big files. Free and (soon) open source. Payment features are on the roadmap.

I recently fell into a hole of absolutely cool decentralized and p2p (peer-to-peer) projects! Interestingly, they are NOT actually using the , but they reach similar goals. I'm sure it will interest some of you!

Cabal: cabal.chat : Server-less decentralized chat, with rooms and groups like Discord. Quite early in development. Linux, Mac, Windows and CLI. Has a very unique and novel approach to moderation in a decentralized context!

Je connais pas grand chose à la musique Métal, mais ça m'apparait comme une musique parfaite pour exprimer la rage. En ce moment, devant la crise climatique et la monté de l'extrême droite, ce serait le bon moment d'exprimer de la rage.

Ça existe des groupes de métal qui parlent de la crise climatique?

Hello, I am the project coordinator for the Network Music Festival which ran as an extremely large all-online event that in 2020. We worked on a teeny budget and, as much as possible, used non-capitalist tools.

Part of our goal in doing this was to be able to help other online events organise without the use of corporate tool chains.

If you are planning a non-profit or low-budget event and would like some advice about using less silicon valley spyware I am super happy to talk to you about the advantages and disadvantages of the free tools we used. I can also try to do introductions to folks who might host you at free or low cost and can also provide some training at no charge. (Ideally I would meet with somebody in your org who would go on to train others. I would be especially pleased if some blog posts and the like were also generated.)

We're all at different places and getting away from capitalist tools is a process. A journey even! Which takes more than one step. Wherever you are on that journey, do get in touch if you think a chat might be valuable.

Above all else, RPG in a Box needs visibility. People often say "How haven't I heard of this before?" or "You need to get this out there more." I'm doing everything I can, but I can only reach so far on my own. Please help bring it to others so everyone can have fun making games!
