I like beetroot. It contains a lot of red. Sometimes I forget and when I look into the toilet bowl the next day it scares the living daylights out of me for a second or two. This toot brought to you from the bathroom.
Constructing houses from tree is considered a good way to store carbon for long term. I've been thinking about in what extent the same arguments hold for books.
How much carbon does one book hold up, and how big percentage of the original tree ends up in paper? How long on average are books stored before they're discarded (and either burned or left to rotten in landfill)?
So in sum: are paper books more like storage than consumption?

I recently installed #deltachat. Great concept!
- Use your own email address
- You can reach anybody having an email address
- End-to-end encryption
- Serverless (for the app itself, not taking into account the ones used for the emails)
- Good design (similar to #Signal)
And they are on Mastodon: @delta
So many toots I start writing and then I abandon them because I remember this or that incident, people complaining about mansplaining, or unwanted advice, or they just wanted to vent and I didn't see the signs… this is how old people must feel. None of the enthusiasm left but memories of all the failures still burning with shame. Thus begins the retreat into the inner self.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
