Why yes, I *am* trying to test "the mighty morphin' power ranger thesis of the fediverse."
The consequences of not maintaining and improving that body of existing applications are beautifully illustrated by a paragraph in another paper in the conference: "Off-the-shelf digital tools as a resource to nurture the commons" by Mela Bettega, Raul Masu, Nicolai Brodersen Hansen and Maurizio Teli. There, the researchers are weighing Conversations (#XMPP) which is the ideal fit in theory, but fails in practice. In the end they end up suggesting Telegram.
Link to that paper:
"The New Rural Agenda Summit is a planetary conference by lumbung member Jatiwangi art Factory. International policy makers, institutions, artists, representatives of villages and other-than-human inhabitants of the Earth are invited to strive for an agenda for a common future."
Looks like the IEA started advocating some #degrowth talking points.
(Hard not to be cynical about it though, when they do it only when Western geopolitical interests are at stake, and not in case of minor things like the future livability of the entire planet)

Someone is sending raw print commands to open network printers on port 9001 which inform people about reddit.com/r/antiwork (via https://twitter.com/4b4c41/status/1465506217778941955)
Reminds me of this crap weev pulled a couple of years back sending nazi propaganda to open printers on universities etc (https://www.vice.com/en/article/gv5ykw/hacker-weev-made-thousands-of-internet-connected-printers-spit-out-racist-flyers)
The medium isn't the message, the message is the message.
Fascinating piece of low-tech history from the low countries:
Around the 17th century, the #dutch started reinforcing their dykes and harbours with sturdy mats the size of football pitches – hand-woven from thousands of twigs grown on nearby coppice plantations. These “fascine mattresses” were weighted with rocks and sunk into canals, estuaries, and rivers.
This technology was employed as late as the 1950s.

lumbung calling: Regeneration
Saturday, October 2 , 2021
2.30 pm (CET), 3.30 pm (IDT), 6.30 pm (KGT), 7.30 pm (WIB).
About the programme:
"The seventh edition of lumbung calling focuses on #Regeneration. Within the framework of documenta fifteen, regeneration is explored as a way of living and organizing oneself and communities in opposition to extractive practices. This approach also includes generating time and space for mutual support and reflection. It centers care—often made invisible—as a vital part of political activism, enabling the incorporation of many viewpoints within a larger ecosystem."

Urban Fish Ponds: Low-tech Sewage Treatment for Towns and Cities
'In the mid 20th century, whole cities’ sewage systems safely and successfully used fish to treat and purify their water. Waste-fed fish ponds are a low-tech, cheap, and sustainable alternative to deal with our own shit — and to obtain high protein food in the process. '
so, a degrowth society is one where everbody gets to eat tilapia multiple times a week?
indoor gardening advice wanted
I'm planning my #gardening on a small south-facing glassed balcony, essentially a greenhouse. It will likely get a dry and arid climate during summer so I'm looking at #lowtech low maintenance irrigation techniques. Anyone have experience with buried clay pots or ollas?
