I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

These fully working iPads should be going to families in need, but they will be scrapped instead because they are Activation Locked and @Apple won’t help. #righttorepair #wwdc

I'm binging through the archives of the Spacetrawler webcomic. As in, I've lost multiple hours of sleep doing this, in the past week. It is SO damn good.

I've finally caught up to the place where I left it, about 8 years ago. Only to find out I'm not even half way to the end, and it's still going...

I'm going to see more late nights...

It's a funny, heartfelt, inventive, surprising and beautiful space opera. If that sounds interesting, start here:

Someone asked (at least a little tongue in cheek) what the buying power of some of these old Roman coins would have been.

It's hard to say with any accuracy, but I found this article which gets in to some of the details: web.archive.org/web/2013021007

I'm mostly looking at coins from circa 300.

"they are punishing him primarily to scare everybody else, to make sure you don’t want to launch #Wikileaks and disclose all these secrets. The message is: “If ever you have evidence of atrocious crimes, don’t disclose it, because this is what will happen to you”."

Nils Melzer, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture

Looks like Melzer's book (published today) is a very important piece...

Back in my art school days I used to ride the 710 COPSA line from Parque Del Plata to Montevideo almost everyday.
I did a ton of drawing while riding buses since my round trip commute was around 3-4 hours.
This is the Marcopolo Viaggio G4 Mercedes Benz model from the late 80s, one of the older bus models that was running on the line.
