I'm also now thinking about an acid trip where we all decided we had developed computer face, then put this on and geeked out so hard
kill your coworkers by flying lotus is pretty much always running through my head

Hey! If you're on here following a diverse crowd of people who you feel you're learning a lot from, great, awesome, you should DEFINITELY check if they have a donation link or subscription service! It's not something I've always been perfect at remembering either, I get it, try not to spend too much time fretting over it instead of fixing it.
We are learning from them, and that's labor. Pay people for the privilege of your becoming a better person. They deserve it, and we owe it.
There's a new patreon competitor being developed that's gonna be run like a coop, with the creators using the platform having democratic control of its trajectory. Since it'll have no investors and a ton of the overhead will be avoided with the coop structure, fees will be a fraction of what they are on other platforms

I bet it can have the same layers with computer tech if it's integrated into the amateur/repair cafe mov
It is interesting and telling that it is common, when discussing computer use, that we divide the world into, "technical" and "non-technical" people. This binary is used to explain all manner of behavior applied with a lot of stereotypes and results in a polarized debate. Are there any other framings that might lead to a more enlightened discussion around software practice, agency, quality and responsibility?
@neauoire Even if it's more of a collection of utilities with an expanded basic than a full blown OS, I always loved its look. But in general I have a soft spot for low-rez - so I am biased.
Arne (who does bunch of cool re-imaginings of old tech) did a cool ZX spectrum inspired OS mockup in a similar style: http://androidarts.com/Amiga/ZX.htm
I would love to have a raspi distro that look like this.

"Everything has stopped in #Bolivia!
More than 75 highways and roads have been blocked across the country.
Social movements and trade unions stress that their demand is no longer just democratic elections, but also the immediate removal of the entire coup-installed government."
