Regarding my last post. "Art isn't dead, you're just stuck watching corporate sh**" (Disney/Marvel/DC/EA Games/Blizzard/ Activision)

I was talking with a friend about it.
90% of what I consume is indie media. Bcz I learned habits that allow me to find cool indie stuff seamlessly.

But it can be hard for ppl who are used to just consume what is trending, to just go off the grid with their media.

Maybe we need something like a "manual to abandon corporate media". It could be a Zine.

#MastoArt
one thing I can recommend is to visit your local art house cinema (if you happen to live in the vicinity of one). Also local film festivals are great, and very often free or cheaper than regular tickets. I work organizing those kinds of events so I have firsthand experience
This resonated: "But it can be hard for ppl who are used to just consume what is trending, to just go off the grid with their media."

I'm seeing this dynamic w/the exodus fr Twitter to Mastodon.

Twitter accommodates a certain type of passive consumer, content to just let Twitter's firehose drown them.

They never need to lift a finger to curate, and never have an impulse to go "off grid." They soak up what the algo sends them w/out any further curiosity or interrogation.

We would like to see more translations of scholarly articles, as the name of our group suggests.

One way to stimulate their production is to bring them inside the scientific reward system. We thus propose to publish translations in scholarly journals and call on editors to publish such translations and make this clear in the instructions for authors.

The call in English: https://blog.translatescience.org/translated-articles-are-research-output/
And in Indonesian: http://dasaptaerwin.net/wp/2022/06/penerjemahan-artikel-adalah-luaran-riset.html

Autofocus glasses!
What with the inexorable march of time etc, I find it harder to change focus from near to far.
These glasses have refocusable lenses (from some horrible cheap dial-eye specs), a couple of little linear servos to drive them, and a couple of endoscope camera modules to track my eyes.
The focus is adjusted based on where my eyes are converging.

On Leaving Big Internet (2)

Important: Most local reporters primarily come up as crime reporters. These are pure access relationships that depend on a cop giving a tip about a burgulalry to one TV station over another. twitter.com/gaywonk/status…

Corporate media — which benefits from a close relationship with police and is threatened by mass movements — is going to spend the next few weeks lecturing a grieving community about how to best respond to the state-sanctioned murder of its people.

Rediscovering the Small Web

"Today's web is mostly commercial. The smaller web of individuals has neither the resources nor the will to compete for visibility and audience the way the commercial web does"

Ohio launched a website where employers can report workers who refuse to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

So this hacker made a script that fills the website with junk data in an attempt to make it useless.

This Mayday is unlike any previous Maydays. There will be no marches in the streets and no public speeches.

We can’t demonstrate, … Continue reading "Mayday Revolt Call Out"

on our lord and saviour


poppy has been warning us of our current covid times

1. in scary mask, poppy talks about wearing her mask, not taking it off, and urges you to NOT TOUCH HER. DO NOT EVEN LOOK AT HER. the man asks you "are you wearing your mask??"

2. in her latest album, released barely after the prc announced to the WHO, poppy has songs:

a.] sit/stay, sick of the sun, don't go outside: PROPERLY promoting physical distancing and staying at home

b.] BLOODMONEY detailing and questioning religious leadership during these times

c.] i disagree, urging us to let all our terrible institutions burn.

d.] concrete if we die, just turn us into something useful ❤

in summary, i am definitely not in a cult lead by poppy.

I liked this video quite a bit. It's definitely something I've constantly battled with - even though things are shitty, I _strongly_[ believe that we should try our all to change things for the better. The issue comes with deciding where to put one's efforts...

Re: Scruff Under-reaction


O ok fine, Scruff has sort of redeemed themselves (like while NYC is COMPLETELY freaking out. note: scruff is based out of NYC)


Grindr did a thing where they made global chat free, so I do kinda like that. Hopefully it means moar eyes are in the epicenters. Still nothing concretely telling people to stay the fuck home

covid half-assed reaction #245934


Only just blasted today, Scruff's reaction is woefully insufficient.


Grindr is even worse. They're showing _more_ profiles than normal, and giving out their "premium features" to free members.

I want to create grindr bots that give variants on the message "assume you've killed someone if you hookup"
