Registration is now open for the Battlemesh v12! It will happen from 8 July to 14 July near Paris.

All information is on

Don't forget to propose a talk or workshop on your favourite project of the moment :)

I gave a little talk at work today that tries to explain what ActivityPub is; I also turned that talk into a blog post! I blogged!!!

I wrote a thing about why I believe the best and most useful decentralized applications are going to be the ones that utilize multiple protocols. I imagine a world where ActivityPub, Dat, and Secure ScuttleButt are all seen as tools in a toolbox rather than as ecosystems, and what kind of amazing software we could build with them outside of the central/corporate paradigm.

The program of the Libre Graphics Meeting is out. #LGM 19

On the upcoming education strike in NL (15/03):

"So what’s wrong with Dutch education? The answer can be found in the policy mix pursued by successive Dutch governments, contriving to simulate an austerity-driven market mechanism in the public sector. Universities and schools are encouraged to compete against each other for students and monies, under emaciated budgets, on the basis of dubious benchmarks and targets. The policy has raised the student/staff ratio in the Netherlands to one among the highest in the OECD – higher than the US, Greece and Italy; the ratio is approaching 20 in the main research universities."

"What idiot designed this?"

It's a new year! Dennis (de Bel) is back, the window is broken and l'intolerant #18 is out. Enough reasons to come together and have a drink.

This Friday, the 11th of January, from 19:30, Varia opens its doors for some special new year's drinks and some fitting music.

Woodstone Kugelblitz will also be presenting the latest issue of L'Intolerant #18: A Really Useful Cookbook.

Almost everyone is welcome and the entrance is free. However, a voluntary donation of 5 euros will help us replace our window and is greatly appreciated!

See you there!

Next step in kimchi making: Spring onions, garlic, ginger, carrots, fish sauce and chilly powder turned into this (the lack of photos of the process is due to the messy red nature of the job). Now is about letting bacterias do their work, wait and taste and wait more. 🌶
