Does anyone know if there is any solid data that tracks the number of people who emigrate from the US every year?

Been looking but can't seem to find anything but lagging estimates

I've put in some work, started my own instance(s), followed, unfollowed, moderated, failed and kept going.

no space or person or project is perfect, but I'm grateful to each and everyone who left kind words of appreciation, who made an effort to respond, helped, criticised with civility, sent hugs, to me or anyone in the world!

all we need is love (and intelligence. and revolution, and some fun).

peace, and happy birthday, fediverse.

I am conscious that the conversation about alternative or open source technology can be missed by a broader audience, including many artists and arts organisations that I know. So I wrote an article about the ethical, social and environmental reasons to use these technologies. It has been published in the national newspaper VAN ("Visual Artists News sheet") run by Visual Artists Ireland

Influenced by #AMRO @servus and @michal among others.

Online version coming soon

In the Feminist Hack Meeting #1 @mara introduced us to mailing lists migration with Mailman. The migration of feminist lists hosted by the systerserver project was realised successfully and we went through the 'pain' all together! Here are some photos/screenshots from that day.

Thanks to all the participants who joined!

Received my first printed copy of 'A Nourishing Network' today, and had a chance to read it this evening.

This is a wonderful object and a brilliant project. I'm still trying to decide who to send my spare copy to.

Kris De Decker (of Low Tech Magazine) presents the possibilities of low-energy, low-tech wireless networks. He always writes well and this one is particularly good.

“What do a feminist server, an art space located in a public park in North London, a ‘pirate’ library of high cultural value yet dubious legal status, and an art school that emphasizes collectivity have in common?
