Pinned toot

Reminder: "Annoying troublemaker with fast autofocus and terapixel resolution."

If you come to me with criticism, you're very welcome, because I love constructive criticism and interference.

But please, ensure before hitting "TOOT!" that your criticism actually applies to my arguments, and avoid trying to essentialize my position or attack my integrity.

Thank you.

@CharredStencil Yes, here "permissive" means "submissive to market appropriation". Choosing a so-called permissive license is allowing corporations to restrict further cooperation : granting people the right to restrict your freedom is not permissive, it's masochistic.

On the other hand so-called "restrictive" licenses only restrict other people from restricting your freedom.

We should revolt against the inversion of meaning so prominent in contemporary propaganda. Orwell warned us.

I got a flat tire in the middle of nowhere. Of course I did not have a replacement nor any tools, why should I, it only happens to other people, right?

I'm a lucky bastard. One very kind person soon stopped and helped fix the bike on the spot. And he gave us directions.

Sometimes getting out of main roads help us find resources in humanity that our urban mass media online world seems to tell us has disappeared.

My eyes bleed. Maybe if you would use yours as well, mine would stop bleeding.

@how If we’re going to flatten the power structures that means we have to forgo power when offered and design the sorts of systems where power is distributed as equally as possible.

L’ère numérique est l’abandon des corps : enfin, nous avons tout fait, notre maîtrise de la matière est presqu’achevée. Mais c’est ce presque qui nous retient toujours malgré l’optimisme de notre fuite en avant vers un absolu inatteignable.

Thank you to everyone who supported the project and spread the word.

Sacred trees of the Djap Wurrung who have been around 800 years, longer then Notre Dame, are threatened to be teared down for building a road.
No milliards needed, to preserve them, only respect and soul.
The birth tree has seen the delivery of an estimated 10,000 Djap Wurrung babies.
