@Eidolon0 Everyone is smart in their own ways. Don’t judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. Or something. @thegibson @sungo @remotenemesis

@thegibson @sungo yeah we would all just be really supportive of each other’s projects lol.

I work for a non profit made up of committees. It’s tough lol. Luckily I’m an employee which means I’m not ON any committees I just listen and then implement whatever it is they decide on, if they ever do

@thegibson @sungo I’m out of town for work this week but I’d really like to contribute more to the mission.

@sungo @thegibson if you can give me a week or two I’d love to give it a shot.

I think I can keep our vibe while modernizing where it counts.

At least, I would like to try.

Love my new iPhone but it’s too dang slippery. Guess I need to get a rubbery case.

@xo notion is such a great app. Welcome to Mastodon!

Was gonna post a pic of my office view for the day but then I realized you would figure out what building I’m in and what floor.

I'm listening to Heartattack and Vine by Tom Waits and being reminded that that man could do things musically that feel ancient and brand new in the same moment, and that I should make more time to listen to Tom Waits.

Hey everyone! #SolarpunkActionWeek starts in 2 weeks, so I just wanted to go over something before people get too far into planning their actions

Remember that #solarpunk is an #anticapitalist and #antiauthoritarian movement. If you support sustainability, but you don't recognize that an end to consumerism, exploitation, and hierarchy is necessary for that to happen, you're not solarpunk, you're just green

We won't be accepting submissions that involve campaigning for any political candidate or making an excessively consumerist purchase (i.e. buying a Tesla wouldn't be accepted, buying a bike and selling your car would; buying a portable solar panel for hiking trips wouldn't, but buying a small solar panel setup to get your apartment off-grid would). Use your common sense and we'll use ours

Once again, we're available to answer any questions you have, either about these rules or just helping with your action! Happy planning :greensun:

@Ferretsyndicate @Are0h Why are Right Libertarian’s so afraid of a healthy populace?

So there's this absolute scumbag in North Carolina who hates gay people, and also happens to be blind.

In the last few days I've seen a ton of people mock him for not looking at cameras, or 'the weird way he moves his eyes.' It's a textbook example of why focusing criticism on someone's physical traits is never a good idea.

Most folks I've pointed this out to are suitably chagrined, and I appreciate them <3. A few try to defend themselves. He's a scumbag, so there's no holes barred on insulting him, right? No.

When we mock a bad person for being blind, or fat, or trans, we're telling everyone with those traits that we secretly think they're less than wholly human. Maybe we won't admit it so long they remain "good," but we've admitted that it's there under the surface.
