I can recommend Loomio as a forum and Matrix / Riot as a chat app. The French govt is using the latter, its user friendly and secure
Finally finished the long-overdue
Solarpunk, cyberpunk, popculture: technological narratives tl;dr
@snype hey! The talk was cancelled as I needed to get hospitalized two days before the talk. I'm polishing a blogpost featuring everything I wanted to say and it'll be public soon :)
Thanks for the interest!

"Elements of our reality correspond to elements of fictional ones, sure. But I’m not saying that we live in a cyberpunk world. Rather, we live in a world that can be productively viewed through a cyberpunk lens. The difference is subtle but important — cyberpunk is the map, not the territory. "
I don't know if I posted about my latest blogpost:
Hackers in popular culture - the curse of being an eternal rebel
> Using "computeromancy" as an aesthetic makes true hacking much more tame and hackers' criticism of our capitalist culture - toothless. They're dangerous because they're skilled criminals / geniuses, not because they see more than us or raise valid points against how we use technology.
The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.
Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.
Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.
One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir_Technologies) and on the board of Facebook.
I do not recommend using Brave.

It's both! :D

I'm looking for creators of https://petapixel.com/2015/01/22/disabled-photographer-petitioning-canon-make-dslr-left-handed-people/ … petition / photographers missing their right hand.
