Am runing some experments with advertising a bit of cash and all the free credit they through at me to see what diffrences not comunication makes. Will do a blog post in a month or so with results.

Q: what would a from the do? What are these things? what s the ? i never heard of those.

A: click on the words and figure it out for yourself.

Was on the phone for 4 hours, pushed it up 4 levels to a hardcore persion who offered half the amount the lower levels had offerd, but never implemented, and threatened us with a long arbitration process if we did not agree

Been on the phone for the last month to about being double billed for broadband. Each time its resolved they say they will call back, they don't. Then the process starts agen, am now on hold for 2 hours talking to 3 different people.

Pissing on is not activism, its feeding the that are core to the control of our world and failing environment.

Get on the streets, organize, will sell our future to the some constructive pressure this is less likely.

Musk says Tesla will be out of money in 10 months without ‘hardcore’ changes - The Verge

All the is a part of the its simple to understand this.

This battery is cheap and is the only one I can find that works with solar, will charge off USB and 12v solar panal. You could do this cheaper with a LED projecter from china but its toss a coin that the projecter will work in a good way, and the specks are half lies. If you are interested in a portable screening projector, this is a full cost 1000 lumens LED solution. I have been useing the older 500 lumens version of this projector for a few years it works well and most importantly you can run it off an external laptop battery

#ExtinctionRebellion isn't perfect, but it's got the UK government to declare a climate emergency in a few short weeks.

Get involved, challenge peoples ideas, think of actions people of colour and other groups vulnerable to police can join. Tangential nonviolent actions are always good! We have our last chance to stop the worst of climate disaster right now. Every other injustice will be worse because of climate breakdown.

If not you, who?

From London to the Black Sea

Living in London for 4 years on a refurbished lifeboat we set-off across the English Channel and arrived at the Black Sea over 5000km and 3 years later. Now we turn around and head home, circumnavigating European inland waterways.

This is a video of the DIY Boater Gathering at the filterbeds, a slide talk, outlining the voyage, with Q&A with Hamish and Ana the crew.

I would say its more a choice between nasty viscous or just plan nasty :)

Founded on #4opens and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its a safe space for Campaigning and NGO groups to access their members via #openweb projects.

"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.

We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.

This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.

Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.

We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.

A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
