That was a pretty obvious one to miss, Russia has gold, oil, a skilled population and they just happen be friendly with the world's largest manufacturing nation that is also threatened by the US.
yeah I think this was obvious to anybody who has any understanding of Russia, yet if you said these things a month ago you'd be labelled a Russian troll spreading misinformation.

Who’s REALLY Responsible For Inflation & Food Crisis? (Hint: It’s Us)

The conventional wisdom in the western press is that inflation and the food crisis are caused by Russia, specifically Russia’s blockade of Ukrainian ports. B...

I'm not talking about commune things Wich start as a commune and end as a commune. Am talking about real life cases where scalability and rapid changes is the advantage. And yet co-op and communes still has leaders.

Also there's no justice in the world. And communism doesn't provide any more justice. It's about rules of the game. You can either accept it and do your own things or you can compliant about rules and ban yourself from trying to play.

Right now capitalism is pretty efficient thing. When everyone will have a pice of bread and fresh water regardless their nation only then capitalism will start to degrade in humanity performance. I don't see any more advance system atm.

Only in Western journalism would you get a "# expert" that doesn't speak Chinese and has never been to China. A "# expert" that doesn't speak Russian and has never been to Russia. Etc...


But their titles say "expert" what else do you need?;)

The makers of , the Fediverse photo sharing platform, have just created a slick new guide to the Fediverse at:
It's got a list of Fedi projects, a list of mobile apps for Fedi platforms and an opt-in directory of people to follow.
The directory is particularly interesting as it works very differently to FediFollows or Trunk. You add hashtags to your profile plus a special extra hashtag # Fedi22 , then submit your profile to the site, and it will become searchable for the tags in your profile.
(And, yes, Mastodon is part of the Fediverse, see here for details:… )

This is so slick.
I would have loved to have hit this page when I was first learning about the Fediverse.

New Pepper&Carrot derivation: a short scene animated coming with a fully detailed # krita and # b3d making-of. A project done by Purism's Creative Director .
You can read the full making-of here:…
I really liked the result and all the production tips on the article (the compositing!). A very good resource if you are interested into animation with Free/Libre and Open Source tools.

hi new users! this is a reminder that mastodon's culture is NOT the same as twitter's-- you're entering a community, not a void, and we're reading your posts and want to interact with you
please don't treat this place as "twitter but with a new ui." the influx has been overwhelming for some of us who've been around for a while, we're happy to see new faces but please be considerate of the people around you as you join this space. thank u

Sam Tripoli on Peertube

For any #tinfoilhat fans out there (Sam Tripoli) you'll be happy to know his episodes are mirrored on his very own #peertube instance and thanks to the magic that is #activitypub you can follow the latest releases directly from #mastodon :) The view counts on the videos are truly incredible since they're embedded on his main website. The part that I enjoy the most is the fact that most of his audience has no idea of technology being used

👏 Protocols, not platforms.
👏 Communities, not corporations.

Apparently there is an influx of new people. (I can't tell from where I sit other than people saying there is.) In times like this, I just like to keep my head down. My favored use of social media is slow and deliberate. I like kind, genuine people. The other social media never worked well for me, but the fediverse has generally worked (even before Mastodon came along).
Welcome aboard to any new users. Be patient, be kind, and I hope you find a nice spot here.

A lot of people think is just a file storage system, but it's more like a personal software platform.
There are LOADS of add-on apps available that give it all kinds of online services:
My favourite is the Talk app which lets you run your own instant messaging service 😍
Bear in mind apps are made by different people and may be in different states of readiness, so do read comments and check date of last update.

My partner is looking for time-tracking software.
Anyone here using an Android app that automatically tracks time spent at specific locations using GPS data? She has tried "Smarter Time" but she says it's pretty buggy.
She does not want a manual tracking app, because she doesn't want to start and stop the timer. She wants to be able to activate it at will, and leave it on until her workday is over, and then get a report for invoicing.
Boosts welcome to increase the crowdsource sample size.

Starbucks' flagship roastery in Seattle just unionized. Moral victory

April 19th, 1993. The day the ATF and FBI burned men, women, and children alive under the guise of “protecting them” and getting “dangerous guns” off the street.
These thugs dressed as "law enforcement" portrayed themselves as "good guys" yet they LITERALLY posed with their government guns alongside the dead bodies of still smoldering American children.
These are the people our government wants to have more power over your lives in 2022...

Dear Fediverse, we need your help.
My totally innocuos sister was hacked these days (in Bavaria/Germany). Phone, laptop, social media accounts, banking data, everything. Calumny, and so on. She's truly devastated.
Do you know a guide (in German would be nice, but isn't essential) how to behave and what to do?
How can she delete Facebook, phone number, etc., if these are under control of the attacker? Is overwriting phone and laptop enough, or should she buy new ones? And so on.
Thank you! Das könnte helfen!
