Great article critiquing "white-tech-bro-dominated maker culture" and reimagining a feminist, empassioned, community-centred maker culture, through zines: hybridpedagogy.org/fandom-femi

remember when white men in tech were all "break all the rules" and "disrupt everything"?

weird how when folks started disrupting the racism, sexism, and bigotry that's pervasive in the industry and in society, they switched to "just stick to the status quo, no need for change."

I moved Magenc's writeup to its repository, currently in the README file. gitlab.com/dustyweb/magenc/blo

Also merged two PRs from @clacke (thank you!)

Next question: I guess at this point I should magenc a #Spritely project proper and move it over?

Are you interested in how to bring secure, private, peer-to-peer distributable content to the fediverse that can survive nodes going down? I've finished writing the documentation for the #Spritely Golem demo which explains how to do just that: gitlab.com/spritely/golem/blob

It also includes a running, workable demo which you can try yourself. Please do and let me know your thoughts!

Want to work with the technologies that (I believe) could power the next (peer-to-peer) Web? This is an unmissable opportunity to work with the people leading that movement.

9 years ago this month, Eben Moglen delivered the oration that started it all: "Freedom in the Cloud."

This speech inspired the #FreedomBox project. Part history of the web and part call to action, this speech continues to orient our community today. It's worth revisiting each year.
