Featured story: "The conservative campaign to harass the libs out of academia has already sent a chill through #Texas’ world-class public universities, making professors and administrators so fearful of setting off the lunatics in charge at the Capitol that they censor themselves—in scholarship or in their communications with students and the public."

I'd like to announce not one, but TWO new #Discord servers for #Neurodivergent people in the #UpstateNY area! Both have been in the works for a while, but have now actually launched. If they apply to you and you're interested, I would be overjoyed if you joined either or both. If the links have expired by the time you're reading this, feel free to message me.
The first is a general server for #Autistic people with any connections to anywhere in Upstate NY. Open-minded #Allies seeking to listen to autistics and become better allies are also welcome. It's a #SafeSpace for building #Community, making #Friends, chatting, and possibly hanging out together IRL or planning #LocalActivism. This server is pro #Neurodiversity, pro #SelfDX, #Intersectional, and not for parents or service providers (unless you're autistic yourself).
The second is for the Neurodivergent #Solarpunk #Anarchist Community Space. This is a very long-term project for a brick-and-mortar #Cooperative community space in the #FingerLakes area. The hope is that, when the place can actually be built, it will be a site for #MutualAid, #Permaculture, #Education, #Recreation, and all sorts of other projects of, by, and for the community, with the overarching goal of building and supporting neurodivergent solarpunk anarchist community at a local level. This cooperative also embodies the hope of bringing genuine #Joy, #Connection, and #Inspiration to the world as a whole.
The quote from below article stopped me dead in my tracks. Reminds me of way too many bio education initiatives I've been naively involved in (if your long-term outreach/education program does not involve professional teachers, it's time to reassess) https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/gates-foundation-takes-up-question-of-its-own-power/
A neat "book" i came across courtesy of @itsfoss.
"Putting the 'YOU' in CPU" explains how a CPU works, how computers run programs, and the basics of these wonderful devices that have taken over our life, in simple (ish) terms.
For anyone that wants to know HOW computers do what they do, this is a great place to start, and it's free, readable on the website, on GitHub, or as a downloaded PDF.

This addition I coded over the last month is now in the source code - so you can try it out with a daily build already.
The word “invasivore” is a portmanteau combining “invasive Species” with the Latin root “devorare” meaning to swallow (as in "herbivore" or “carnivore”). Thus, #invasivore = one who eats invasive species, those organisms that have been introduced around the world and cause massive environmental and economic damages.
Our website https://www.invasivore.org/ serves a buffet of knowledge about #invasivespecies. At the core of our approach are #recipes featuring invasive ingredients, but we also provide species profiles describing notorious invaders, harvesting tips, exposition and commentary on related topics, summaries of relevant #science and #research, and roundups (#InvasionBites!) of the latest #news and other media about invasive species.
We believe that #education and #awareness can decrease the impacts of invasions by controlling existing populations and preventing new introductions.
Everyone is a winner 🏅
Thanks and well done, everyone!
