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 #Berlin today. Nice/weird recommendations? Wanna hang out?
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 🤔
I remember reading recently that hereditary monarchies generally lasted longer than elective. No idea which was better for the peasants 👨🌾
The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had an elective monarchy for it's entire, rocky, Liberum Veto era.
