hello my name is diana and i make bad software 👋 #introductions
i like to work with p2p tech like dat and ipfs and stellar, and distributed databases like couchdb. i really like mesh networks but i haven't had the chance to work on one -- yet!
i believe there is enough for everyone. scarcity is a fiction and poverty is inflicted. we can be a better world for each other. we can be the change ✊ ❤
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.

social scientist does social experiement undermining white imperialism, and the older white anthropologists' feelings were hurt :(
@shel When the camps got shut down in November a lot of people recommended switching to mobile warfare with swarming attacks and rapid dispersal on bankers, CEOs, billionaires &c. Probably would've worked. Occupying foreclosed homes was very effective where it was tried, but didn't catch on.
Weird question. But can ya'll recommend me "space opera" feeling games? Because like my partner really misses Mass Effect and that's what she loved about that series.
LB: you can do it
the great thing about mastodon isn't that people don't try to make witty remarks about popular toots, it's that the popular toots are all "snoozlen't: hhnnngddy the cruncy dirgus" and there just Is No Witty Response To That

the funny part is that damar is also replaceable, as once he rebels the dominion just recruits a different, more compliant collaborator to execute their will. he only becomes truly irreplaceable once he takes up arms against the dominion.

erg, I messed up post visibility on a lot of those follow up toots.
Oh well, short version:
The mayor cracks down on houseless camps everyday here that directly benefit those in need. In doing so, he seperates children from their parents all the time.
These occupations are not tolerated however.
I don't think the narrative of the media or the mayors office should be a metric for effectiveness.

Update on making RSS better for long-form work like webcomics and serial stories! (See this thread for background.)
Based on nice feedback from a WordPress core contributor, I think I understand how to add RFC5005 support as a WordPress plugin.
Does anybody want to build that plugin with me? It should be mostly straightforward but I haven't programmed in PHP for about two decades and I'm intimidated.
equal parts horrifying and ridiculous
I need about $400 to crack even so I can get my bills paid in July while I search for jobs. That's the minimum, not even counting the money I need to buy my antidepressants and not go on withdrawal.
I am available for employment if you need a remote graphic artist.
You can also hire me to work on commission. https://commiss.io/rhyspass (if there's something you want that's not listed, I'll come up with a rate for you)

The next time someone decides to tell me that the reason things are the way they are is because of "The Free Market" I'm going to politely ask them if anyone paid them for this opinion.
And if the answer is "no" then I'm going to say "then why are you giving it to me for free, or is that precisely what it's worth: nothing".
