This deferential, toadying open letter from the nonprofit world to the tech giants has me frustrated/fuming and I'm considering writing an open letter from the radical tech communities to the nonprofit world https://nonprofitquarterly.org/2018/07/19/an-open-letter-from-the-nonprofit-world-to-the-tech-giants If these people are trying to change the world why beg to use the tech that so blatantly upholds the current social order? #liberatorytechnology
Activism: ID rich folks from picture Show more
For anyone who enjoys identifying people from photos, these folks kind of deserve to be called out for aligning themselves with one of the most audaciously selfish people alive:
"for about a year i create linux related pictures for fun and upload high-resolution images for free usage. so far i made about 100 images and may be you can find in the archive a new wall poster to decorate your wall or sticker to decorate your laptop."

I'm interested in how to reorganize jurisdictions as cooperatives. Villages, neighborhoods, small towns, townships, water districts, school districts, parishes, even counties. I only really know of one, other than the efforts in Rojava: Marinaleda. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/20/marinaleda-spanish-communist-village-utopia Are there others? Are there guidelines for conversion, and do they work?

Average working hours at Oracle Korea are 80-100 hours per week, yet most workers have seen no wage increase over the last 10 years.

When we speak of Sugar Maple, we say, “Oh that beautiful tree, ki is giving us sap again this spring.” On a crisp October morning we can look up at the geese and say, “Look, kin are flying south for the winter. Come back soon.”

I'm often to the left of Bernie, but I think we both agree that merely allowing corporations to form in the first place is a recipe for human misery. Apparently he's having one of his town halls tonight, in case you care...
For anyone else whose income is based on sitting around doing mindless work, here are some engaging socio-economic podcasts to help you make it through:
"One of the reasons Arendt was so unnerved by liars was that the way they did politics was so close to how she thought politics ought to be done. She wasn’t endorsing lying or embracing liars. She just thought the distinction between the liar and the truth-teller was too easy because opposing oneself to reality - which is what the liar is doing, after all - is part of what it means to act politically." - Corey Robin

It might be good to remember at this moment that Ronald Reagan arranged with the leaders of Iran to prolong the embassy hostage crisis through the 1980 election to hurt Jimmy Carter’s election campaign. The hostages were released the day Reagan was inaugurated.

Tech is "mission-critical" to ICE. These companies must divest from Trump's deportation agenda.
Tech companies have been exposed for their role in furthering ICE's operations. We must get as many people as possible to tell them that their complicity in cruelty is inexcusable and that they must cancel their contract with ICE.
This survey, courtesy of the folks at the Federation of Anarchist subreddits, will determine what pieces of literature will be recorded next by the Audible Anarchist collective.
