I am moving my Masto account from octodon to firstname.lastname@example.org . If you wish to keep following me please do so :)
For people who are new to Mastodon; you can have have multiple accounts on different servers. These servers are like your local neighborhood on Masto, with interests like gaming, linux, writing, activism and more. You can even find instances that ARE in your local neighborhood IRL.
If you want to move your account from one instance to another read this:

Details about the Sunbeam.city co-op and other services we do Show more
Just in case you didn't know, SBC is a democratically run cooperative! You can read about our mission & goals on our wiki (wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php), but the short of it is that we're solarpunks looking to do radical solarpunk shit. And you don't have to have an account on our Mastodon to join the co-op!
We also run a Plume instance (cafe.sunbeam.city) for longform blogging, open to anyone and have a sister Pleroma instance (habitat.lunarpunk.space). For instances looking to convert to a co-op or other democratic form, we offer to host a Loomio page for polls and discussion.
If you're interested in any of our platforms on the fediverse, they're open to everyone! And if you're interested in becoming a co-op member, let me know 😊
Whining about sore muscles, sports Show more
I had decided to pick up some of my sporty stuff, try out some very light running I couldn't do for the last years, also some firness yoga.
My muscles ache so much now. Ouououuuch!
Also: Why isn't there a cute term for "Muskelkater" which literally means "muscle hangover" and also "muscle tomcat" in English!?
Organized a small study circle on surveillance capitalism and anti-capitalist tech today.
We discussed the dangers of organising on Facebook, state surveillance in Pakistan, and embracing p2p alternatives.
Used @aral's Rai interview and Shoshanna Zuboff's "The Age of Surveillance Capitalism" as primary resources.
Managed to rope a fellow comrade onto the fediverse as well 😁 (say hi to @Zainulabdin!)
Maybe in the future I can lead a study circle on #solarpunk

Any tips for talking to friends who believe that socialism is predicated on state violence? I feel like I get this one a lot from my Libertarian friends, and while I don't want to go down a theory hole, I feel like "the USSR wasn't socialist" isn't enough of an argument. 🤷
Some solarpunk (SP) discourse that I saw on tumblr ages ago which inspired my involvement. Show more
SP -must- be accessible. In order for it to truly be hopeful while not being utopic, it must allow for a range of interpretations that look vastly different across a wide geographic area. To enforce uniformity is not solarpunk. Which is why SP isn't just about solar, or even other alternative, energy sources. It's about inspecting the natural systems that are already benefitting the world, and basing our tech, social, and economic systems on that. SP has a huge aesthetic range, too. It can't just be floaty light colored flower dresses. It's worn, patched, thrifted jean overalls and a 10 year old t-shirt you bought from a friend. Solarpunk encourages us to say "yes, and what if we did better than that?" Solarpunk allows us to use what's here to create something better. Not going backward like anprims want, and not dying in a bloody revolution like tankies want. It's about happiness and growth.
People wrote to us asking for a guide on how to form new groups and go about organizing in their local area. This is a guide to moving from being an isolated individual to being part of an active crew. https://itsgoingdown.org/get-up-and-get-going-how-to-form-a-group/
Fellow scholars, I'm looking for a way/journal/portal to publish methodological details and results from a structured literature search (not a fully qualified literature review) - open access is a must, open peer review would be nice. Topic is biomedical / medical /health informatics with a focus on laboratory systems. Any ideas or recommendations? #question #academia
Pets, babies Show more
Ever since we moved to part owned housing (rather than private renting) Sunny has been allowed out of her crate at night and she'd usually sleep in the bedroom doorway, guarding us while we sleep
Since we've had the babby she has instead started sleeping right at the foot of the babby's bed instead.
Anarchists in mainstream media: AAAAAA FUCK LAWS MAKE BOMBS BURN DOWN EVERY BUILDING, EVERYONE DIES YOU EITHER KILL YOURSELF OR GET KILLED, 5EDGY3ME
Anarchists IRL: I just want to be able to spend 20 hours a week baking bread for my commune and spend the rest of the time tending my garden and hanging out with my cats
