for those wondering how to establish trade relations with crows:
- feed crows food A regularly
- when crows decide to bring you gifts, feed them food B
- when crows bring you different categories of gifts, feed them a food-per-category, ex: food C for jewelry, food D for paper money, etc
- crows will recognize these exchange patterns and opt to bring you things in order to acquire desired treats
good luck! 🐦
No one needs to starve. No one needs to freeze. No one needs to die. There is enough for everyone. More empty homes than all the people without them, more food than grocers can even sell. The labor and the materials to end scarcity exist now. It is not a far-off dream. We can end scarcity in this life.

I'm still struggling to find work that can pay my bills and is good enough that I can work there sustainably for a good while. If you'd like to help otu:

... but for whatever reason you can't risk making yourself a target of state violence. It's kinda hard to undermine the state without exposing yourself to political violence, right?!
Sabotaging the state's instruments of violence is half the picture: The other half is building alternatives to oppressive systems. A lot of that work is super safe and accessible to a lot more people.
Ideas in the thread.
Happy #baturday!!!! Did you know bats are one of the most important pollinators next to bees and butterflies? Another reason to love and protect these cuties.

So things are going to be really tight. We got 6 days to find 650€ to pay rent, before the check is pushed again by the agency we go through.
I've already tried saving up on my own, but I am far from having enough to pay it and mother won't be paid until next month.
If you can help I'l be extremely thankful.
You can send one-time help:
Or a weekly amount:

God, I'm really sorry to do this AGAIN, but um
i guess surprise costs + the remainder of my repair bill just kind of were more than i could afford.
anyway. i just got a $25 ticket and um, yeah, I don't have that much to my name. goddammit.
i really don't know what to say. i'm sure i could have budgeted better. i should have just paid at the meter instead of being all "aw haha it's just so i can grab something from my apartment, i should totally take that fucking gamble, knowing full well i have no money."
You've all helped me so much, but I'm just uh, not sure how to get through these last goddamn 9 days before my paycheck.
I guess if you have some extra money or something, um, it would really help this dumb asshole out if you dropped a small bit?
Friends I've done it. Mastodex is now up! If you don't know what it is, Mastodex is a public listing of Mastodon users in which they are tied to a specific Pokémon of their choosing.
It's in early stages, I'm happy for others to play with it and for people to contribute if they want. It's licensed under the zlib license.

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.
