If you want a straightforward, practical project to help contribute to leftist, anticapitalist, and anarchist movements, then learn a new language. It is without a doubt one of the most limiting factors in our movements.

What is happened in Iran earlier this year? If I knew farsi I could maybe tell you, but instead I just know what the NYT said happened.

Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that switching.social closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.

question for tech/union fedi:

does anybody know if recent tech unionizing attempts (kickstarter, npm, etc) have worked with existing labor orgs/what orgs those are? i'm curious how much external support these groups had or if they were mostly homegrown organization efforts

it raining, i have coffee, Janelle Monáe is playing

i am having a very good morning so far

vox media is unionized, gizmodo group (which contains splinter, the root, etc) is unionized... as a result, these places tend to produce pro-labor pieces more frequently, and with more insight and nuance, than non-union newsrooms. they’re not perfect, of course, but i’m glad they’ve organized! ✊️

its important for everyone to know that service-dogs-in-training get their own special theater productions, where they practice sitting politely while the actors on stage perform an entire show for them

Its suddenly occurred to me how ive been tripping over backwards for years to try and always call linux by stallman's preferred gnu/linux monicker but he wont use 'they' as someone's preferred pronoun.

That's fucked up when you think about it.
