Another successful frog hunt tonight. I located this wee chap on the veranda.

But while out in the yard, I also found some luminous fungi growing on a stump. It's the first time I've come across glowing mushrooms before.

A Suggestion On How To Move Forward: Surveying 

Surveying is a collective and cooperative reading method. If interest is made manifest (through responses to this post), I propose we organize a preliminary meeting in December 2021, and begin surveying texts of interest in 2022.

In short: we choose a text that is a priori complex and we share it among the participants. Everyone reads their part, then we meet to discuss it collectively, share, criticize, open the reading to our own experiences.

The key point is that each participant reads a different section of the text, so that the meeting (ideally) ends with each person present having an individual and collective sense of the whole text.

Stemming from French working-class culture at the end of the 19th century, land surveying was put into practice by resistance fighters during the Second World War, then disseminated more widely by various popular education movements until today. The survey is not just a summary or an analysis; it also makes the link between theory and practice, between reading and experience.

It therefore stimulates cooperation but also the highlighting of differences in interpretation, and encourages participants to reflect on a subject beyond merely reading out of interest in the subject itself. Beyond its analytical interest, surveying is also a dynamic and proactive working method, far from the analyzes of classic texts and their preconceived criteria.

Always a good start 🤪

So you can imagine the sort of total transformation of the world as we know it that would be required for net 0.

"If we can accomplish one thing, let ours be the last generation to have to start so nearly from scratch. Let us, mutually, create enduring spaces where collective experiences and cultures of struggle can be passed on and adapted to changing circumstances." - Peter Gelderloos

great interview with @penpot CEO Pablo Ruiz-Múzquiz by @clayton

Designers to developers at Kaleidos:

> Look we are not first-class citizens in open source. We are happy with Inkscape. We are happy with GIMP. We are happy with some tools, but you developers have everything to choose from. You can choose the best of the best. You live in this paradise world where you don't know how privileged you are.

> We agree with you. We are all about open source absolutely but you have to understand that we are frustrated with the professional quality of some tools. We want to achieve parity with you developers.
