Much of the independent web relies on Patreon to organize financial support.

The good folks at @comradery are building an ethical alternative as a co-op.

One of their rules is "no bosses, no cops". It's not meant for businesses (even nonprofits like the one I work for) but for independent creators, workers, activists, and co-ops.

If that could be a good fit for anything you our your friends are doing, maybe give them a follow here to stay updated as they're building the platform!

Bert Hubert created , a small programme which sonifies the data collected by while we browse online.

So I decided to give it a short test-drive.

when you think of notion of 'podcast' do you expect it to be more or less just talking or could it be also like a dj set or at least a lot of music?

also, do you have an opinion or experience with regards to music copyright in case of music used?

More sanity from my home country: Māori tribal leaders & their advisers call for data sovereignty, to take back control of what is theirs. Cited is "an intergenerational approach to data, as a taonga (treasure)"

Self-hosting is included as a strategy, servers at home & on the marae (meeting house).

This initiative can be seen as a form of infrastructural de-colonisation, reclaiming what has been lost to the digital imperialism of AWS, Microsoft & other 'cloud' giants

The simulation we live in is abandonware.

These little comics are new to me. Quite a few make make it up on my wall. to-zo.com/notbut. Substitute “instrument” for “pen”, and this rings true for me:

OSes 

I've lost count at how many I've used. Consumer, industrial, minicomputer, mainframe, high concept to complete toy. Pre-release, beta, half broken dev builds. I've cut my teeth on so many UNIXes and Linuxes they all look the same.

So, what's the best?

The one you have, and the one that feels like home.

There is no ultimate OS. Prefer to crack code on bog standard Windows? That's cool. MacOS? Sure, if that works for you. I don't care if you're on a mean and lean Arch build, a Haiku Alpha, or some patched monstrosity running in a VM on top of Qubes.

Your home isn't my home, and shouldn't be.

That's what makes it beautiful.

The single, greatest thing a tech conference can do to increase speaker diversity?

Stay. Virtual.

There are many technologists out there that cannot attend a conference because of restrictive laws, bigotry, disability, health, or just plain time and money.

runner's thoughts 

Today I ran and as so often I had a discussion with myself meanwhile. It was about why I run. Here is the gist of it.

I don't run for the stats or numbers. Not to improve myself, become a better me or optimized. Neither to compare or be in competition. For sure not to have fun.

I run because I decided to.

And I deem this reading on agency important enough to share it. So often we do things because somebody or something sold us a story why we should do this or believe that. In a corporate world so much of our intent and agency is geared towards other ends and means then ourselves and our communities.

I run because I decided to.

On my tracks around the neighbourhood somebody planted a tomato-plant in an old tree-trunk. I love that.

Cats are pure quantum uncertainty state generators. Not only are they dead and alive until you look, they also want to go outside and stay inside until you open the door. When was the last time you collapsed a cat in a superposition?
