@TMakarios I want to ask you about Circulex. Have you heard of Trustlines? The concept seems pretty similar to what Trustlines is attempting to do

I'm trying to start a thing where everyone on Fedi puts their country and gender in their profile names, like I have.

I think it helps promote a sense of "closeness" between people here on Fedi, especially since most of us aren't comfortable sharing pictures of ourselves.

and this is why socialism will never work, revolutions always get co-opted by the bureaucratic-managerial class

the only way to have freedom is to claim it for ourselves this moment, not wait for the state to build it for us

Blockchain is not only c****y technology but a bad vision for the future

(I personally don't agree with this man since I'm a blockchain nut, but it is interesting to read different perspectives on an issue)

To anyone interested in the #Pinephone, or even the #Librem5 and #Linux #smartphones in general, we owe a huge debt of gratitude imo to #Megi.

He's not employed to do this, but donates hundreds of his own personal hours helping to get the hardware working, increase battery life (over and over) and generally make a huge amount of the smartphone progress we've seen, happen.

I'm personally extremely grateful and encourage everyone to donate at the bottom of his page here:

tech environmental impact 

This is a big part of why I am so anti e-waste. The tech we enjoy in places like the US is built off of the extraction of minerals like coltan or other minerals that contain lithium. Even the acquisition of silicon is included in this.

So, yes we move some up the impact from fossil fuels to another column in the spreadsheet, but that's not really creating a more just world.
