@Stoori My son pointed that out to me when he was three.
I was exasperated and sternly told him to please behave. A few minutes later he said, "Look, Mama, I'm being have now."
I am aware enough of language that I felt very foolish for saying something so meaningless to my child.

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

@servus It sounds wonderful. I wish I could be there.

Send me your notes and thoughts on 'waiting'. What are you waiting for, is that waiting hopeful, or anxious, or incurious?

Back to geeky stuff; I wrote a little backups howto with restic for containers. Includes a bash script for cron jobs.

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.

specific harms of NPD stigma, abuse discussion 

@ljwrites This is a really good thread. Thank you!

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

re: race & racism in the Broken Earth trilogy 

@Stoori @IngaLovinde @ljwrites I agree, thanks!
I'm not sure it exactly fits in this list, but I would also add "The City in the Middle of the Night" by Charlie Jane Anders. Inhabitants of that world are regarded by the humans as dangerous animals, but they turn out to be a different species of beings resisting colonization and genocide. I also really like the way Charlie Jane Anders writes different kinds of relationships.

@celesteh When someone here used lynx to look at our website, we found some mysterious links that are not visible in any other browser.
Thanks for reminding me again of why I wanted to go back to using lynx more often again now.
