Here Itreat sticks as a tool (metaphorically)... a tool to teach about ontology. In that skit with robin williams, he is also treating sticks as a tool (literally), to teach about creativity.

"I know a tool when I see one"

Enforced ontological framing thru propaganda is a tool of social control.

Look at how beavers were once classified fish. Or how corporations are seen as persons.

"for purposes of"

Tools defined by their use, and their purpose. Affordances imbued thru social constructs.

How much is reasonable for a server?

Im hoping to get 300MBit/s in the near future, but the weasel wording only quarantees 11MBit/s.

So I wonder ...

@Framasoft ?

I just realized #Peertube (Federate #Youtube alternative) needs funding in order to hit their 1.0 milestone in October! Please back this project. Boosting this post also helps get the word out. Thanks!

Are you currently looking at a bland desktop? Is your wallpaper uninspiring? Do your eyes crave something other than the default desktop wallpaper?

If you have a computer capable of displaying wallpaper you owe it to your pixels to check out

@davidrevoy has some amazing artwork up there that is just waiting to grace your desktop / background.

Only you can prevent bland desktops.

We really need a #failed project #archive in material science or at least #solar energy materials..
Its sad that all my #effort put into investigating a material goes wasted if it doesn't work.
It would be very nice if people are able to #publish their failed stuff and still get due credit...may be such an initiative also help overcome fear of publishing open access bcoz its a failed project..

We all need a free alternative to YouTube!

PeerTube is a decentralized video hosting network, based on free/libre software.

PeerTube is currently in beta version, that's why @Framasoft needs your help to pave the road to version 1.0!


(Framasoft is a small french non-profit, so do not hesitate to Boost this Toot to non-french user and invite them to help us fund PeerTube v1)

"Don't piss on peoples rants" really needs to go into the Code of Conduct.

I pissed on somebodys rant.

I was resolved not to do that; I know better.

I am now resolved to not do it again.

Because i really do know better.

People need their rants.

@natecull The people who argue behind the scenes at Wikipedia are the sort who think that all problems of pedagogy and epistemology can be resolved by deploying acronyms.

> it's a return to the governance model of the internet of the 90s, which is the "local dictator", with a single admin or a small mod team who are the sole owners and operators of a site

- come visit us at, the cooperatively owned and run corner of the fediverse, and see how things are actually very, very different :)

Is there a big thread of DIY resources for newbies anywhere in the fediverse already? Making clothes, art, doing repairs, repurposing old stuff, etc. I want to start putting my own knowledge into an open format like on Wikibooks or something.
