I'm thinking about living travelling around the world, starting on 1 or 2 years when I could make plans for it.

Are there queer radical leftists and artists from Berlin on here that I could follow to start getting connected?

Boosts ok!

I liked this tiny story about the Japanese man who sent weekly letters to a hotel in the Netherlands for years – despite the fact that he had never visited the country at all.

I won't spoil the reason why to you πŸ˜‡

Toxic masculinity. Does that mean all masculinity is bad? No! Not at all.

This comic explains it fairly well. The term Toxic Masculinity is from Social Sciences, to help explain certain problems in the current image of Masculinity, which hurts both men and women.

I'm thinking of taking some traditional art comissions (charcoal, maybe pastel if I could work the technique) to help with living and surgery expenses.

Would someone be interested on portraits of them, their animals, or person+animal portraits?

@andrew Oh no :( I hope big yeen didn't get a cold from being outside for so long... And that the pizza arrived warm and was tasty!

@andrew If I could order Doner Kebab at 4, you bet I would've done it uncountable times by now. 🀀

Enjoy your pizza!

A third mail delivery from another fediverse artist arrived today!

It's... more stickers! πŸŽ‰
These are Flan emoji stickers (and a lovely hand drawn flower with a note 🧑) from @pamela! Thank you!

Blockchain: decentralisation centralised on my coin.

Hint: the core of decentralisation isn’t about having a billion copies of the same database. It’s about a billion people each having their own, unique database.

PS. In a truly decentralised system, no one makes a billion dollars. *watches all the right libertarians make for the door*

PPS. A venture capitalist would never invest in a truly decentralised system. Why? See PS, above.

Google does a lot of things for "security" that coincidentally makes it harder for users/developers. It usually has a real security benefit, it just may be a smaller benefit than they indicate. Sometimes it could be done a different way that wouldn't inconvenience users/developers but is mysteriously not done another way.

This security benefit is excellent cover for them. When I point out these issues, I invariably have someone ask "You think security is bad?"
