Mental illness talk, mostly positive 

@hafnia This is a beautiful thread to read. Thank you!

@wendy I have just spent *two hours* trying to help a friend open an important form she needs from a government website. I've seen this site before. They proudly announce how secure it is to use their online services, but not only are the procedures hopelessly arcane, also *nothing* works.
As we both got frustrated together, I kept thinking about this worksession.

To all the anarchists who have recently arrived. In case anyone wasn't sure, the stuff you post on the fediverse is not private, it is available to all to see, the state included. That means the nodes where activists congregate are also patrolled. This is not a place where you should organize actions. Use other, encrypted tools for that.

Between 7 and 12 December 2020, organises the Bureaucracksy in Brussels.

This work-session investigates the governance of techno-social systems through the prism of . The execution of rules is an essential element of computation, of digital infrastructures, and of the societies that they operate with.

More more more (ask me or)

@sole You can also follow people from other instances.
If you want to hear about producing and distributing music using free software and non-commercial platforms, for example, you should follow @luka

@sole Welcome to the fediverse.
You can choose what you want to see. You should be able to find icons to display the local timeline (everyone on your instance, whether you follow them or not) or the federated timeline (all public posts), or you can just read posts from accounts that you follow.
I had a link to a good introduction, but I can't find it right now. I'll keep looking for it later.

@yourfavouritecomrade I have no idea what that means, but since I'm 62, I am intrigued now.

@fadimat That's what I was doing this afternoon, but then I was caught by surprise when a wave of homesickness suddenly washed over me.
And I know you all know that's how it works, because I have translated texts from all of you - Katrin, Sam, Gitti, Androsch, you ...
But hearing Christopher and Nancy's voices in both English and German got me too.

What's a word like "heteronormative" but for outdated binary gender roles instead of heterosexuality?

@celesteh At some point I decided to try Duoling too, in between attempting to have real conversations with the people I live with.
On Sunday I managed to explain a project I initiated in marginally comprehensible Spanish, but later I found a stupidly reproachful email from Duolingo telling me I had not practiced Spanish all day.
I tell myself it's a good thing that this app/web site has no idea what I am doing offline.

PSA: If you are using Nextcloud Deck, you should *not* update to the just published version 1.9.1 but wait for the next release 1.9.2.

v1.9.1 will break things:

If you're wondering if a tiny group of people can put together an enormous festival in just 3 months, the answer is *technically* yes, but we are still taking today as an extra needed day of rest.
While we enjoy sitting on our local parks, you may enjoy our still-running exhibition:

Or share some love with our artists:
