There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.
#2231 "the Time Before And After Land"
According to Google, "the time for Beeland" is apparently whenever you're looking for delicious honey in Spillimacheen, British Columbia or a hexagonal chalet in the Savinja valley in Slovenia.
introducing self: Grafton9, a diy archiving initiative of italian books, zines and journals of autonomous left and grassroots squats, of late '90s (but not only). very low quality, very low profile, a lot of activities on hacking tools and software for digitization and publishing on the web, and collecting rare published materials.

EmacsConf 2019 is tomorrow. Even if a conference about Emacs doesn't seem like your thing, it's worth taking a look at how it's being put on.
It's 100% remote, all talks are live streamed, live transcriptions are posted to IRC. Audience questions are taken from a different IRC channel.
It's the conference version of "everybody dials in." I'd like to see more conferences put on this way.
Kids, if anyone ever questions your "computer art" please point them to what 95 year old #VeraMolnar has to say.

Surveillance capitalism is pollution
Making ethical choices about your use of technology has been referred to as veganism, but the impact to others of one's choice to use surveillance capitalist services is far more direct than one's choice of food. If you eat meat, it doesn't give me heart disease. But if you use Gmail, they see all your correspondence with me. That makes using surveillance capitalism the equivalent of smoking in a crowded room without asking anyone if it's OK.
that feeling when you don't have the file you really need
