From the marbles that traverse and connect across continental distances to the families that share memory-laden recipes, in our second issue, we imagine networks—online and offline—that resist the global internet clock.

It’s here! ISSUE 02: Inoculate, hot off the distributed press. This issue contains eight creative pieces—(non)fiction, interactive media, and stories from the front lines of alternative networks built on care & solidarity.

Tried to explain imperial measurements to the 5-year olds this morning.


short reminder that this chronically precarious queer neurodivergent femme is very grateful for any kind of material support, be it ongoing on patreon [1] or one-off on liberapay [2] or ko-fi [3], or by buying my music on bandcamp [4][5].


I am also available for music theory lessons, although my schedule has only daytime (CEST) appointments open.

Did you know Projekt Red obtained a trademark on "cyberpunk"?

And that they're now pursuing a claim against the designer of a TTRPG, Neon Nights?

'Instagram music isn't available in your region'

asking for money help, boosts needed :boost_ok: 


i need $35 for my phone bill, $60 for groceries, and $80 for medical weed ($175 total)

i've been trying to do freelance video editing and/or find a job as a video editor, i can't work anywhere facing the public because i have asthma and catching covid is a major health risk for me




thank you so much for saving my life multiple times and continuing to keep me alive, fediverse!!! :black_sparkles: :blacker_heart:

re: technology hot take 

@ljwrites Yeah the original fediverse federation protocol was called OStatus, and was just Atom + Salmon (thing to inform servers of new posts / favourites / etc in real time) + Portable Contacts (extra metadata for defining accounts).

It was replaced by ActivityPub to address the following failings:

1. OStatus was an amalgamation of specifications which weren’t necessarily designed with each other in mind. ActivityPub is one specification and easier to implement.

2. Atom is very verbose, which isn’t a problem for things like blog posts, but it’s a little awkward to be sending this huge chunk of data for a post which just says “awoo”.

3. Atom (and OStatus) were only ever designed with public, general‐use internet publishing in mind, and didn’t have mechanisms for designating the intended audience of a post, which is important for social media. ActivityPub has to, cc, and bcc fields, the same as email.

If you don’t make frequent (multiple times an hour) short posts, don’t care about designating a specific audience, and don’t need the real‐time aspects of social media (like favourites), Atom is still a better solution. We’re just in an awkward place where most people publishing to the internet right now expect at least one of those things.

vent, caps 

i totally hate web pages with posts that don't mention the year of the post. there's day and month but NO YEAR!



communism NEVER meant authoritarian - it is just how the patriarchy designed their communism, based on marx/engels/lenin plan to establish communism… Luxemburg never thought so, for example … you know what happened to her anyway, update could be #democraticconfederalism

moving spaces
turning into more black
lace (digital)
network spaces
as we like it

all kinds of stories
shapes and


the manifestations
are on my mind
looking for a crack
in the fog
in the cloud
in the air
in the fire and rain
to exit
to come out
to love life
to love the wound
in a bataillesque way
or artaudesque manner

so on
and so on and on.

as you wait,
we trully 💜​ YOU

ok fediverse,

do you know any transgender musicians/composers? which ones? (if a lot, your fave 3)


if you're genderqueer, nonbinary, or trans person to any degree with a 'movement' from masc to fem:

do you use perfume?

if not, why not,
if yes, why, when and what kind?

(ok to boost)

"A vampire must be welcomed into a space to enter it; always standing at a doorway, on the periphery, on the edge. The human familiar also waits at a border, literally edging, waiting for the promise of penetration. A witch’s familiar is usually an animal, like an owl or a cat. To the vampire, there’s no difference between people and pets. You become a little doggy, tongue out begging at the back door.

For a vampire, blood is a treat, a lubricant, a dressing. Puncturing skin breaches a boundary, sucking a future out from two holes.

one thing i think about is how, in neoliberalism, it is for a given accepted that not only will corporations never do what is morally right, but that the government has no say in it. individuals ourselves have to shoulder this burden, and it's a breeding ground for extremism

"Revenge isn’t really a horror film—it’s a portmanteau of genres with blades in its shoulders and razors in its mouth. In her feature debut, writer/director Coraline Fargeat makes it rain blood with enough energy to turn anger into excitement. It doesn’t totally reinvent the rape-revenge premise, but it rips the male gaze out of the audience’s skull. It’s iconoclastic, bombastic, beautiful, and brutal."

In our case-study published in June 2021 on the use of biometrics in counter-terrorism in Afghanistan we warned about risks of this biometric enrolment and recognition device called HIIDE - Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment.

this dick-swinging by the people on power is disgusting and fascist

is there a semantic html/css tag way to denote monospace/serif/sans typography?

i guess one can write this via span classes but that won't be very semantic?

.monospace { font-family: monospace}
.sans {font-family: sans}
.serif {font-family: serif}

Some normal text, <span class="monospace"> some typewriter text</span>...
