I thought I’d kick my feed off with an #introduction 😊

Hi! I’m Isabel, a next-gen #scicommer, #cyberneticist and #podcaster based at the #AustralianNationalUniversity ☀️

My research interests include #science in #popculture (particularly #solarpunk), the #cultural meanings of science, and the relationships between people, the natural #environment, and #technology 👩‍🔬🤖

I also co-host #Sci_Burst, a science in pop culture podcast, which you can learn more about here:

This show in which I worked on conceptual art and worldbuilding, will premiere on October 19.

I am really hoping for this too, a #solarpunk future for all beings, it is what we all have to hope for and what should never stop fighting for!

Between the #solar panels and the battery, I've enough electricity to run the #airfryer for my lunch.

Is this #SolarPunk?

Solar providing 1.27kW and battery providing 0.41kW. No electricity being drawn from the grid.

#solar vagabond. My posts are now outdated the issue you need is a panel with a "real USB-C PD" rather than just normal USB with a C socket and no PD, then you need to find a battery bank with "power pass-through" and 2 USB-C PD sockets - this is the hard part. And yes you can do it with normal 2amp 5v USB, but his will be battery assist more than power. It will work'ish but lead to premature battery wear all round.


This is a comic strip I've been running on Tumblr. I can run it here, if anyone is interested.

I recently watched Strange World, largely because the animation looked interesting. However, I was extremely pleasantly surprised by the optimistic and surprisingly radical #solarpunk and #degrowth themes.

Pop Culture Detective regularly has good video essays, and their essay on this one is no different:

A fantastic video by an incredibly inventive farmer who's built out a bespoke waste timber-to-biochar system, including a push-powered field railway and giant handmade flywheel.

So, @rek and I got super interested in these vacuum tubes that people put on their rooftops.

We've just cooked our first meal with the sun, and are still a bit shocked at how well it worked out. It's pretty cool out today, it was able to cook potatoes thoroughly in an hour.

In the #UK it's not always sunny enough for one of these to be useful, but I've hooked mine up to a #DIY #battery pack—made of #recycled #liions—and while it's basically useless on a cloudy or rainy day, it actually provides a meaningful amount of power on a sunny day.

This would never work as a commercial product because, if these components were all brand new, it wouldn't make any economic sense.

That's the beauty of #solarpunk #diyelectronics and #recycling! It brings a whole new life to these reclaimed panels and cells!

Hello, everyone! As many folks from Tumblr are moving here, I figured I might as well. For the many who don't know me here, here's an introduction post.

For those wondering about the second part of the username, agorism is a left-wing, anticapitalist form of market anarchism similar in style to mutualism that focuses more heavily on using the counter-economy (any voluntary activity the state does not approve of) to demolish the state. Both black/gray markets and mutual aid are part of this.

So while you'll find the regular solarpunk stuff from my blog, you'll also occasionally see me suggesting things like a fully decentralized hydro-powered mutual crypto-credit system.

Though I'm well aware my views are odd compared to the average solarpunk, I'm happy to vibe with a crew of a similar mind! Thanks for having me!

As we agorists say:
Agora! Anarchy! Action!

hi, patch commissions are open! i can do either hand-drawn fabric paint on black, white, or off-white fabric, or i can do embroidery - either normal embroidery, or cross stitch, on various fabrics or colors of aida fabric.

if you have the extra funds, consider getting a patch for yourself or a friend, or at least give this a boost!
