is there an 鈥渋nternet block鈥 bot yet in the fediverse that announces when websites are blocked and unblocked around the world? @kotolya just told me Telegram is down in KZ and it made me wonder what else is down.

Trajectories of the Earth System in the #Anthropocene

We explore the risk that selfreinforcing feedbacks could push the #EarthSystem toward a planetary threshold that, if crossed, could prevent stabilization of the #climate at intermediate temperature rises and cause continued #warming on a 鈥#Hothouse #Earth鈥 pathway even as #human #emissions are reduced.

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what.

Slides from a workshop I just gave:

鈾狅笍 鈾ワ笍 鈾o笍 鈾︼笍

I've found the theory useful in several cases, and think it's generally useful for anyone working with social collectives: union organizing, community design, commoning, etc.

If you're working in a participatory organization of more than ~8 people, I highly recommend formar for bigger topics where there is a division of opinion or expertise.

Inner circle: talking
Outer circle: listening
Switch circle: when you want and there's a space

It doesn't put pressure on less involved people to say stuff (like rounds do) and it doesn't go too chaotic like a big discussion. The format is self-moderating too.

Left should support proportional regulation as a natural sibling to progressive taxation.

The increased financial regulation after the 2008 crisis disproportionally burdened small banks. This was counterproductive, as it lead to a worsening "too big to fail" problem, although it sought to tackle it.

Similarly, anti-trust regulations are often used to crush small businesses and the self-employed more than big businesses.

'Effective World Saving' presentation/workshop I co-designed and facilitated today for residents 馃審

(dw, 'world saving' is used ironically, you know what I mean 馃槅)

Be interested to hear feedback on what philosophical and theoretical building blocks keep you going in the face of outrageous challenge?
