@GNUxeava It's how comic books are often distributed, it's just a .zip of jpgs/pngs/tifs with a different extension
Yeah it's a bit silly but I don't make the rules
@GNUxeava it's handy for viewing .cbz and such
@fribbledom No joke, this made me finally disconnect from freenode for good; the handful of channels I was still in will hopefully make the move soon.
tell me who is making a living via the internet without:
- owning other people's data
- analytics or trackers
- algorithms for distribution (via youtube, facebook, etc…)
- centralized platforms (medium, tumblr, vimeo, youtube, twitter)
- charging upfront
- superficial/clickbait content
- proprietary code
bonus points for combinations
Cabal, the open-source & p2p group chat I've worked on with friends, is in a quadratic funding pilot experiment run by Open Collective!
What that means for us, as an example: for every 10 USD donated, we get a total of 83 USD
boosts appreciated 🖤
mad props @c3voc, every year, without fail, practically zero hitches and a massive amount of video getting taken care of.
Been thinking a lot about how to produce physical things without destroying the environment.
But maybe "production" is just plain infeasible? Like, maybe the pattern of "let's make TONS of copies of this object for lots of people" is just not a generally feasible pattern.
Perhaps the small-scale building of things is the only real way to go: analyze your local needs, then design and build a thing that meets your needs for your specific circumstances.
Between the upper boundary set by the carrying capacity of the planet, and a lower boundary set by decent levels of wellbeing for all lies a band of sustainable energy use, situated somewhere between energy poverty and energy decadence. [...] However, there is no guarantee that the maximum levels are in fact higher than the minimum levels.
Just learned that John Coltrane rented a harp to work out a composition he was working on. Alice experimented with it for the first time. He heard the sounds she produced and purchased a harp for her that same day. By the time it arrived he passed having never her heard play it.
What should I read on the concept of "circular economy"? It's a potentially useful framework to reduce material throughput, energy consumption; reuse byproducts as feedstock. OTOH, it's often pure corporate PR, eg "we have found a new market for our toxic waste." Suggestions?
@Shitlord FWIW they might be somewhere, I noticed the graphical layout was reversed for RTL-language ads, banners and such. Keyboard designs probably suffer from being constrained by like, the cost of modifying a keyboard-making machine.
@Shitlord The answer is boring, it points the same way :/
