“The Techno-Galactic Guide to Software Observation is the obsessive fantasy of optimization turned on its head and stuck to the ceiling of a self-reflecting elevator. It is the ultimate book, with almost 300 pages of dos and don’ts, of forgotten and un-inevitable , of mindful agile actions and improvisational service architectures, of any and all things that you can and cannot imagine needing in a techno-galaxy.”

I am looking for a digital #artist to commision for three assets for the mastodon client @Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred.

"Lately, a wave of yellow bikes from China has been crashing over the cities of this planet, bringing shitty steel constructions into every corner of the world. But what do these bikes do? Are they here to improve the mobility of urban populations or to track their every move? Will they be used for a long time and regularly repaired, or will they be thrown away once they start crumbling? Do we actually need privatized bike-sharing in our cities?

As reports are starting to pile up, that oBike – one of these bike-sharing startups – is shutting down (and taking millions in deposits paid by their users with them), it is important to think about a new way to use these bikes.

LibreBike is here exactly for this reason – to change the whole thinking behind bike-sharing. What if you wouldn't have to pay for the bikes? What if bikes where simply public goods, to be used by everyone? Turns out, in just five easy steps, every oBike can be made into a LibreBike – a bike for everyone!"

I compose sacred and secular choral music, and put it online under a CC by-SA license so choirs can sing it for free!

Publishers won't touch my work because I won't let them prohibit photocopying, so I need support from people like you.
