I love that this looks like it's trying to sell you a tankless water heater out of a truck but it's using real research and really good diagrams

Comic artist wanted for cyberpunk venture, boosts welcome 

Anyone interested in a 70/30 venture to make a webcomic? I'd love to make the novel I'm writing into a webcomic and well, why the hell not, let's make a Patreon!

I already have a chapter written, which is more than enough to draw material to keep ppl hooked.

Requirements:

* Knows how to draw tech stuff
* Knows how to draw good characters

Interested folks message me.

Still feels weird coming here.

I spent a year in limbo, dealing with the situation at home, and my old instance is gone for who knows how long.

And I see a lot of ppl here whom I hadn't seen in a year... as if nothing had happened. And everything's changed so much.

So, what you been up to, ppl?

Anyone knows what's going on with lgbt.io? I have my main there πŸ™

The 1968 Tlatelolco massacre 

Today it's 53 years since the 1968 student massacre.

With the excuse of preventing a communist insurrection, secretary of state Luis Echeverria sent the army to corner and attack more than 10 thousand people, students in their majority, who protested against a military invasion of the Universidad Nacional AutΓ³noma de MΓ©xico, a legally declared Autonomous Zone.

Official media reported no more than 20 deaths, but unofficial accounts report hundreds of people killed.

Documents later released confirm that snipers were employed by the government.

To this day, "2 de Octubre no se olvida" (October 2 won't be forgotten) is a common chant in anniversary marches.

As a personal commentary: This is yet another mass casualty of the red scare. If someone ever tells you that capitalism hurts no one, remind them of 2 de Octubre.

nfts, conspicuous consumption 

NFTs give you the added "benefit" of conspicuous consumption. People can find out who "owns" a particular bit of digital goo. You have that built-in ability to show off your digital flair.

It's the same with special costumes in video games. It shows that you're unique because you spent money. It's the digital equivalent of a luxury good.

That's why it's doubly-off-putting to me. It's the bullshit luxury crap with the added environment-fucking added to taste.
