My friends have just launched a #solarpunk game about sustainable technology on Kickstarter - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/radicalzz/noongk-game
Check it out!
I just remembered Ebocloud, a wonderful book I read a few years ago: a #postcyberpunk / #solarpunk vision of community-oriented transhumanism, a social network created to give people the sense of belonging and create healthy communities.
I can really recommend it.
Idea: in order to be considered a full-fledged vision of the future #solarpunk needs to encompass several subcultures. It needs to allow for conflicts inside, people with very different visions. How could a Solarpunk #transhumanism look like and how would it work with, how would it clash with local de-growth movements? What about globalisation vs localisation of education? Those things will not vanish overnight.
@rysiek you need to blog in general :P
@powersource it's similar, but with much improved, with more examples and more coherent thesis
My #solarpunk #cyberpunk #popculture talk from this year's #hopeconf is available at https://livestream.com/internetsociety3/hope2020/videos/209149752 :)
My talk "Solarpunk, Cyberpunk, Popculture: technological narratives tl;dr" will premiere on HOPE2020 this Monday 27th of July 15:00 CEST / 11 EST!
@michcio It will be on YouTube a week later :P
I'm slowly planning to start a blog focusing on #solarpunkReporting. Telling real stories, especially from the Global South in a #solarpunk way, seeing hope and patterns we can learn in the West in them.
I'm thinking going with a stand-alone blog and a medium.com mirror for bigger reach.
Do you have any recommendations, anything I should look into?
Have you heard about The Story Engine by Peter Chiykowski? http://www.storyenginedeck.com/
Together we made a free app to generate your own story prompts deck: https://cardcreator.storyenginedeck.com/

CryptPad v3.15.0 has been released and deployed to https://cryptpad.fr. In addition to improving our server's scalability we've fixed a lot of bugs and added a few cool new features. See the release notes on GitHub:
A very over-intellectualized, but extremely important text on how we're losing plots and #narratives during a plague - and how it's a good moment to reinvent them.
Great chance for #solarpunk communities.
A lot of countries are talking about sustainability, sick leave and social infrastructure. We can build on that!
I'm reading articles like https://medium.com/@joschabach/flattening-the-curve-is-a-deadly-delusion-eea324fe9727 and I'm thinking: in Europe the virus might be bad, but in the US it may decimate tens of millions of people. Scar the whole society, a few generation, scar the whole culture, induce a societal PTSD.
Am I right to be terrified of that?
What would happen if the world reacted to climate change like it’s reacting to the coronavirus?
Konsultowałem z tłumaczami (stąd Martyna w creditsach), którzy zaopiniowali, że jest to jeden z aktywnych sporów w języku polskim.
Mnie samemu lepiej brzmi -a, więc tak zostawiłem.
Możecie przetłumaczyć któryś z innych Solarpunkowych tekstów i będziemy się prześcigać na ilość źródeł, jak dobrzy wikipedyści :D
Programmer, hacker, educator, activist and a wannabe writer fascinated by how technology is portrayed in culture - and how that affects human lives.
