Two weeks ago, Australian children went for three days of protest. Prime Minister told Parliament "what we want is more in schools and less ."


If you haven't listened to it already:
"You only speak of green eternal economic growth because you are too scared of being unpopular. You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess, even when the only sensible thing to do is pull the emergency brake. You are not mature enough to tell it like it is. Even that burden you leave to us children. [...] You have ignored us in the past, and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses, and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people."

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.

# How gentrification and mass tourism destroyed the former Dutch contemporary arts capital Amsterdam.

This map shows the Dutch art spaces supported by Mondriaan Fonds in 2019, with Amsterdam now down to 3, The Hague having 4, and Rotterdam with 6 (factually 7 including De Player).

Concerning DIY artist-run spaces, the discrepancies are even more pronounced. (In our research at WdKA, we counted 50-100 for Rotterdam depending on one's tighter or looser definitions of "art"; in Amsterdam, there's simply no longer room/affordable space for such a number of initiatives.)

However, the same shrinkage that affected Amsterdam is about to repeat itself in rapidly gentrifying Rotterdam.

To build a site, you only need to learn HTML & CSS, languages that are easy to understand and use. Find a decent host and don't be ashamed to pay for your space. Your business or whatever you do, deserve a decent, ad-free spot online. Don't drop your stuff like uncontrollable garbage on any 'free', 'social', 'sharing' platform. They won't last long.
Only a personal site can survive all the hysterical hypes drowning in the endless streams of social media shit.
