@jbauer it’s also due to lack of trust. Ppl often default to “This is an attack!”, instead of asking for more precision or of simply assuming the best. Everything is a fight.
In my mind when I see someone posting something that could be problematic, I think “do I rly have to reply to this?” then most times I just... don’t. Most times it just isn’t worth it. I wish people had more restraint sometimes.

Really happy to say that WORLD ENDING GAME is out now (in a digital format- print books to come).

World Ending Game is a tabletop game made to be the last session of a campaign in any system. It emulates the end of a film, wrapping your story in a sequence that stays with you, even as you leave it.

You can find it at; https://everestpipkin.itch.io/world-ending-game

i don’t hate technology, i just think we shouldn’t force it on people who never asked for it

the world, both in the private and public sector and even socially, is becoming very in‌accessible to people without a recent android or apple phone. this MUST be stopped.

maybe not everyone wants to be a cyborg

Très très bonne interview, surtout la fin où la très basée Stiegler explique que le néolibéralisme, ce n'est pas le « laissez-faire » — ça, c'est le libéralisme du 19e siècle. Le néolibéralisme, c'est l'intervention invasive de l'État dans tous les domaines de la vie en société pour forcer les gens à « s'adapter ». S'adapter au but ultime de l'histoire selon eux : ce que le philosophe fondateur Lippmann appelait en 1920 la « grande société », c'est-à-dire le marché capitaliste mondialisé.

With electricity prices rising, I recently made some measurements and discovered that our old freezer would cost £700 per year to run. That was enough to justify a replacement freezer, which arrives tomorrow.

Not everyone knows how to do that calculation, so I've jotted down some thoughts (and, in the process, published my first post on #WriteAs):

It’s kind of sad watching chunks of Fedi having to relearn lessons from the 90’s like “running a community website is hard, and the ‘community’ part is harder than the ‘website’ part”

And “any entitled, demanding users in the community will tend to rapidly push the people donating their time and money to run the site to just pack up and quit”

Maybe don’t be a dick to your instance admins and mods — when it’s not worth it to run a community as a volunteer, corps end up doing it for profit, and we’ve already seen how that pans out
