I have been saying this for decades. James does a great job explaining it.

Big Food is QUIETLY Killing Us

The heady side of me appreciates the thoughtful videos created by Academy of Ideas. Here is the latest. invidious.namazso.eu/watch?v=h

I often read or hear people going on about the evils of social media. Social media is one of our best tools to share and discuss ideas. Before we had it, we had mainly a one way flow from news publishers to us without an effective way to publicly question and discuss. I love social media but not the government, AI, and corporate controlled platforms most people are still using. I wish anybody ranting about social media would make this important distinction.

This esim looks like a great solution for people who want their handset regularly connected to cell towers but don't want their every movement tracked and sold. invisv.com/pgpp/ One can transfer phone number to a service like VOIP.ms.

I generally stopped using SIM cards long ago. I have a burner SIM from Mint that I turn on when away from WIFI only when needed. I will stick with this for now since I don't even want to have an anonymous presence on their map.

It is that time of year when our figs are ripening and I go to war with the squirrels who will eat all of them if I don't keep a good watch. After whacking one with a ho today, he jumped at me and left some decent scratches. I live to fight another day.

@sean This good video explains how moderation is superior and anonymous users are not a problem in the fediverse. invidious.esmailelbob.xyz/watc

I assume it would work fine. That model is more designed to be a simple desktop computer, but I think it is just a RPI 4 with a special case that includes a keyboard.

I almost never watch TV, but I am excited to see Westworld season 4 return. It cleverly dances around the world of megatech, data politics, and human slavery that we live in today. The new season is returning closer to Aldous Huxley's Brave New World: one of my favorite books.

Families efficiently travelling like this was a common sight when I was in SE Asia. Contrast that with roads filled with single occupancy SUV's where I live now. Sad thing is that these people will be the ones to suffer sinking cities and wet bulb temperatures caused by the people who live in the north.

45lb plates can cost $100, but these logs are free. I love free and open source weightlifting.

Corporate media continues to frame tech issues in false dichotomies.
-Mac or Windows
-IOS or Google Play..
The latest is whether corporations or the government should control social media platforms.nytimes.com/2022/05/08/opinion
The answer we know is NEITHER. People and communities should control social media. I take every opportunity I can to make people aware of the Fediverse as well as the other alternatives such as Linux and AOSP.

A couple weeks ago, I had to keep watch over this little family all afternoon. Limpy, our crow, ate one of them😞 before I shepherded them across the road. ravergram.club/nextcloud/s/qte

Today my love spotted them and six of them are doing well. ravergram.club/nextcloud/s/yLo
