@aidalgol @douginamug Yeah, I think we just need to realise that we're anthropromophising corporations to an unhealthy extent. We should treat them like the enemies of the planet that they have proven themselves to be.

If you're at a meeting, and things get chaotic, and you end with a lot of meta-discussion about not-about-what-you-were-meeting-for, then you have lost a Coordination Game!

Thoughts about federation...

Assume 'a federation' is a voluntary collective that helps its members to cooperate.

Countries that speak the same language aren't automatically members of a federation.

Similarly, not all users of are a voluntary collective, as we see with instance blocking.

In fact, federations could only form from instances, never from protocols (although protocol affects instance)

So really, being on Mastodon just makes you 'federatable'...

Is there any way to move the 'expanded toot panel' location from the right end to beside the 'compose panel' on the left?

@eweish its true the only thing that counts for your worth as a decent person is yelling about how woke you are on-line, actually doing things is a sucker's game

'All Equal'

"Here comes the raid
Don't be afraid
Tear gas grenade
can't stop this parade

Down on the streets
Is the sound of the people
Each one is different
but we are all equal"

This is a useful way to see how the different protocols of the #Fediverse and #Federation interact and which software uses which.

What if most effective ways to tackle climate change will require to pass some of the costs to ordinary people, increasing income inequality?

What if we have to choose between tackling climate change and tackling economic inequality?

This is not a provocation, I'm genuinely concerned about this.

Wish I was wrong but I'm concerned that we cant tax big corporate polluters without them passing at least some of the costs to ordinary people.

Who else here lives in ?

I don't necessarily mean a mountain-top ecovillage communeβ€”although those count too! Just any setup where adults who are not romantically engaged live together voluntarily in the same building.

Does anyone know of a nice online calculator/table/calendar for solstices, equinoxes and cross-quarter days?

I've been looking around but only find weather-oriented sites that are up-to-date but that don't have cross-quarters, or pagan-oriented sites that are... crufty πŸ˜…

@CreatureOfTheHill perhaps?
