At the end of the day Google is becoming so dominant on the web that they practically *are* the web, so you either use Google products or you avoid touching a computer. I can't quit Google entirely (Chrome DevTools, GMaps, YouTube are the big ones for me).

How do you deal with something that builds amazing products but also does it in kind of a sleazy way? And maybe is becoming way too powerful? I suppose you become a tech vegan sneaking occasional bites of cheese pizza. nolanlawson.com/2019/05/31/tec

Words matter. The news media's insistence on the term "migrant" instead of "refugee" and "immigrant", even when the UNHCR is involved, is destructive, propagandistic, and must be resisted.

IT DOESN’T NEED AMP. It’s entirely static, is as fast as or faster than AMP sites, and is served from a fast global CDN with aggressive caching.

I launched a new blog this week. It's stupidly fast, uses zero external JS or CSS resources, is responsive, and supports modern features many sites don’t like dark style support. But Google just emailed me saying they might deprioritize it on Google because it doesn’t use AMP.

Indigenous people!

Please share this and reply and be my friend! Let's create a community on here where we know we have someone who gets it!

I'll start, I'm Ojibwe. Raised away from the tribe, but am a full member now as an adult.

(If not indigenous, please still share, I wanna reach others)

Transition, age, why now 

Sometimes you have to go back to your musical roots. Sitting here (in Limbo…) listening to "The Harder They Come" and feeling like I know where I come from.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world that hierarchy is the opposite of chaos.

Tonight, I drank vodka, and ate kholodnik, pkhali, pelmeni, sprat buterbrodi, chicken bazhe, a bright Russian salad, and something we improvised that was very like mushroom samsa. All this shared with good friends. I cannot ask for more. This is the world I want to build, this is what we take Sabbath to envision, and then redouble our efforts to make real.

List of kiwi farm instances 

Random observations: before cars, street intersections were places you were likely to have social interactions with your neighbors.

so, yesterday, i put together a list of nazi instances i had blocked. that post has been boosted over 60 times. that's cool, i'm glad i did something useful.

but i can't do that kind of thing if i can't eat. my post about needing money for food has been boosted ten times.

if you appreciate and value the work i put into notifying everyone about where the fash are and you have some money to spare, please pay me.

if you can't give, please always boost.

You unlock this door with a little white pill. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of stress. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Predni Zone.
