@squeakypancakes yes, but if you say "copyleft" and "copyfarleft" a lot of people don't know there's anything technological around it, it's just some Creative Commons thing. Adding "open source" extends the meaning.

FLOSS communication is a hard thing to do well :S

@squeakypancakes why would that be? I'm one of the people pushing Solarpunk to acknowledge hackers - and to acknowledge that it's not only capitalism that's the problem, but also who's creating the technology.

Since my blog tagline for some time was a "Solarpunk Hacker", I began playing with some solarpunk and hacking symbols to create a logo. An early draft:

I like that it represents both Open Source, a sun, dynamic arrows and a person silhouette in the middle. Lots of symbollism.

@zatnosk I have no idea, it's not exactly my kind of aesthetics either ;) It reminds me of

I just remembered Ebocloud, a wonderful book I read a few years ago: a / 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 needs to encompass several subcultures. It needs to allow for conflicts inside, people with very different visions. How could a Solarpunk 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.

@powersource it's similar, but with much improved, with more examples and more coherent thesis

My talk "Solarpunk, Cyberpunk, Popculture: technological narratives tl;dr" will premiere on HOPE2020 this Monday 27th of July 15:00 CEST / 11 EST!

My talk "Solarpunk, cyberpunk and popculture: Technological narratives tl;dr" got accepted to HOPE2020 ( )! I'll give it online between July 25 and August 2 this year!

I'm slowly planning to start a blog focusing on . Telling real stories, especially from the Global South in a way, seeing hope and patterns we can learn in the West in them.

I'm thinking going with a stand-alone blog and a mirror for bigger reach.

Do you have any recommendations, anything I should look into?
