"Brandalism is a revolt against the corporate control of culture and space.

We are an international collective of artists that challenge corporate power, greed and corruption around the world.

Intervening into ad spaces that usually celebrate consumption, Brandalism use ‘subvertising’ as a lens through which we can view the intersectional social & environmental justice issues that capitalism creates."

Ever wondered why we can't have a nice discussion on the internet?

Apparently, r/slatestarcodex had one, and here is an article describing how it ended:

A great article about the Boeing 737 Max issue, and the general tendencies in engineering that lead to it:

"the relative ease—not to mention the lack of tangible cost—of software updates has created a cultural laziness within the software engineering community. Moreover, because more and more of the hardware that we create is monitored and controlled by software, that cultural laziness is now creeping into hardware engineering—like building airliners."

I transcribed a conversation about #microsolidarity from the recent #scuttlebutt camp.

Hot take: Scuttlebutt is the best digital place for juicy conversations about microsolidarity.

If you want to join matrix but do not want to go on matrix.org (and you should go there, it's overcrowded) you can find a list of alternative servers here : hello-matrix.net/public_server

I like feneas.org (nice domain name), chat.weho.st (established non-profit service provider), tedomum.net (french established non-profit service provider)

And of course there is mental.af which has the best domain name of all (that's where I am)

This is a thread about #drawdown (drawdown.org), and a summary of my favourite bits of the very interesting TED talk by Chad Frischmann here: ted.com/talks/chad_frischmann_

It's really helpful for grassroots activism!
