Fuck capitalism, colonialism and green imperialism.

"In Bolivia, the military, police, and right-wing extremists have carried out a coup against the elected government. They intend to remain in power by violently suppressing the country's indigenous and poor."

”What the [Bolivian] military is doing is a classic coup. It’s amazing that U.S. media outlets just explicitly refuse to call it a coup,“ says @ggreenwald@twitter.com. interc.pt/2OahCZ4

"The crux of the plan is for the voice assistant to move from passive to proactive interactions. Rather than wait for and respond to requests, #Alexa will anticipate what the user might want. The idea is to turn Alexa into an omnipresent companion that actively shapes and orchestrates your life. This will require Alexa to get to know you better than ever before."

"I dream of a #Bolivia free of Indigenous satanic rites, the city is not for 'Indians,' they better go to the highlands or El Chaco," Senator @JeanineAnez said on her Twitter account about her country where more than 65% of the population is Indigenous.

There was recently a lot of news about DNS over HTTPS. Some people say it's bad for privacy because it centralizes the DNS requests on Google, Cloudflare and Quad9.

Time to change that and run your own DNS over HTTPS server. I spend some time today in writing, documenting and arranging a small container setup to allow you to do this:

Site.js and Pi

Yesterday, I released Site.js 12.8.0 which brings initial ARM support for Linux.

What that means is that it’s now easier than ever to get a static or dynamic (Node.js) web server up and running on a Raspberry Pi.

Have a Raspberry Pi lying around? Why not dust it off this weekend and have a play and learn how to create your own basic WebSocket-based chat app! ;)

Money is an abstraction to represent value. It's not a good abstraction, but it persists because the global economy is in a local minimum because the disadvantages of sharing information outweigh the advantages. An economy with sufficient incentives for economic agents to communicate their values directly without the abstraction layer would be more efficient, assuming the existence of an agreeable language for that communication

I could tag someone to provide details about valueflows, which is a grammar for that language, but that's probably more information than you want. The important thing to know is that the benefits of collectives aren't just for adversarial situations where we interface with capitalism. We have a basis for building economic networks that are competitive with capitalist business units comparable in size while being just to labor, community, and the environment

The issue is bringing trust-based networks up to scale with multinational corporations. This can happen, but folks are still working on the software support

My interest is in using games to replace discourse an evidence-based approach to economic, social, and political theory
