Repost, from the birdsite:

Sadly, Friday was my last day at the #GNOME Foundation. I'm not going to shock anybody when I say that everyone loves free and open source software, except when it comes to funding work on it.

Gonna be loitering around today. Nice/weird recommendations? Wanna hang out?

Forums feel like meetings. Stays coherent, can get boring.

Masto feels like a party... what was that?

But I forsee that, in times to come, clever intellectuals will mislead the minds of men, turning away from pure philosophy.

Recumbent Lion (2500 BC), the earliest extant example of a sculpture of monumental size that has been preserved almost in its entirety to this day, and the last photograph of a wild Egyptian/Berber lion (1925)...

Having a solution is the smallest step. Turning it into an accepted and widely supported solution - that takes three things. Persistence, Patience and accepting to not be credited. Ideas are bigger than people. Be a catalyst, not a hero.

Anyone know of any resources for facilitating introductions to fediverse/open-source tech to anarchist/mutual-aid groups? I feel like unless a group has a technologist who's already into it, it's difficult to implement. Spent the morning on a call with a mutual aid project who was suffering from a bot attack and couldn't easily/quickly do anything about it because of working on proprietary platforms.

Just noticed the comparison between 'family owned' (I.e. father to son) businesses and hereditary monarchies, and between 'stakeholder electing CEO' companies and elective monarchies πŸ€”

I remember reading recently that hereditary monarchies generally lasted longer than elective. No idea which was better for the peasants πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎ

The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had an elective monarchy for it's entire, rocky, Liberum Veto era.
