"Recently, when I logged into the Mastodon instance—a “Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance”—I found a photo of someone’s blooming spider plant next to a conversation about the consequences of ethical transparency in hierarchical systems. It struck me as the quintessential early-Internet experience."

I have a few projects I am working on:
* Tilde Center - decentralized/federated tilde server network
* Tildex - decentralized/federated application and services
* Babili - extendable virtual assistant bot core
* abots - The shared library between all those projects (short for "a bunch of tiny scripts")

Power is back in my town, so is running again. We were down long enough that my home IP changed, though. Luckily my cron-job is auto-correcting that. DNS propagates pretty quick these days so we should be restored within the hour.

Hey, this zine that I worked on in out. NODE Vol 01, free digital release and physical preorder,

This first volume is 150 pages long, and, it's packed with features on P2P projects, such as Dat, Beaker, Ricochet IM, Aether. There are tutorials showing projects like the new NODE Mini Server, 3D print long range wifi antennas, how to chat via packet radio, and how to Libreboot the Thinkpad X200. There's also a handy open source directory at the back, and more!

@rick_777 talking about Love, Death and Robots reminded me of #Endocosmia, a short story I found a while ago in #HeavyMetal magazine, which I believe LD&R is taking inspiration from.

I just tracked it down the story and wanted to share it, so here you go:

The author, Alex Ebel, sadly died a few years ago.

I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I've started #writing a new #novel and posting each chapter on my #gopher site at

If you use gopher, you can go directly to the index.


Otherwise, you should use Floodgap's HTTP proxy.

BTW, is this format convenient, or would having everything in one file be easier?

You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

#RSS #BringBackRSS

Friends I've done it. Mastodex is now up! If you don't know what it is, Mastodex is a public listing of Mastodon users in which they are tied to a specific Pokémon of their choosing.

It's in early stages, I'm happy for others to play with it and for people to contribute if they want. It's licensed under the zlib license.

Some features:
- Translations for 4 languages (English, German, Italian, French)
- Clear way to claim your own Pokémon
- Responsive layout
- MissingNo

Some lessons from web 2.0

Dear folks! If You know about any #blind person, who uses #Matrix or is thinking about trying it despite all existing difficulties with #Accessibility, I set up a room now to exchange ideas and help each other around. You can find it at #spreadtheword #Riot

Dimly-related biological, we spite words.

I'm my brain: external, extensive,
timeless in our nothings,
roots visible and free.

Earth of old divides, howling still;
in from strangeness, we question the world.

Wild is dying, skin: external;
genius: the dead.

To understand a language gone
in a culture of mind and shadow,
his trembled concepts the same.
