If you're in Rotterdam this July (22nd-25th), keep reading!
Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.
This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here -> http://relearn.be/2021/

Web CMS question
What CMSs are you setting up for clients and collaborators lately?
I still really like the flat file and static site approach but I haven't had great success in motivating editors and end users about markdown and file directories etc.
I'm not a PHP fan, I would like to find something in Python Flask as I have found that it strikes the right balance for me. I do know a few people that use Process Wire, is that still a thing? @raphael I think?
Quokka CMS looked very promising to me but is dead in the water. Wagtail and Django look great but feel really huge for the relatively simple and small (portfolio type) websites I usually make with/for people.
I'm close to setting up a Wordpress but can't get exited about it, need to broaden my horizons. What are you peeps using?
Leaving this alone is going to be a challenge. Tamari promises though!

epub / ebook reader
Building up a new reading list so I'm sorting through paperback purchases, epubs and PDFs that I'll slowly acquire: the non proprietary ebook reader question comes up again.
Has anybody had any success with devices such as BQ cervantes (supposed to run on published software?) or The Open Book (https://github.com/joeycastillo/the-open-book)? Are there others out there that I'm unaware of? Ideally, I'd like to manage my lib with Calibre, ok with it being a bit more manual. E-ink is a must.
Ideas / thoughts ? Thanks!

Didn't even need to ask :)
This sounds like an ideal workaround for groups larger than 35 or 40 attendees when #Jitsi starts to struggle.
Now to see if #OBS will recognise Peertube streamkeys...
You were right @focus404 the fresher spores made this all a lot easier! Sugess with 450gr of chickpea tempeh :)
Do you consume oat drink, soy yoghurt, or other #vegan dairy alternatives?
EU parliament is attempting to ban any terms, marketing, or even appearance of vegan products that are associated to milk or dairy. This includes the terms "yoghurt" style, similar packaging in cartons or yoghurt cups, or even the comparison with milk's climate impact.
While this dairy-lobby-driven amendment is already through parliament, there's a petition to stop it in council. https://stopam171.com/
Recently set the display language in Firefox to Gaeilge because why not, and I was reminded rudely just how clueless Firefox are about Privacy when they also changed the outgoing language preferences header on my browser, so that some (nice) websites start displaying Gaeilge to me.
That's actually a gigantic privacy leak Firefox, and you only told me I'd be changing the displayed language in dialogues and menus. Nothing was said about privacy impacts.
Also, spellcheck no longer accepts English..
#Firefox is being a pain in the **** → navigator.permissions.query() prompts are taking ages to pop up, making web-conferencing very tough.
What browser(s) are you using? Is there anything that isn't WebKit based that is worth trying?
