More than 20 African countries have joined together to plant a giant wall of trees that will run across the continent to stop the spread of the Sahara Desert. The Great Green Wall of Africa will stretch for 7,000 kilometres, from coast to coast right across the continent.

I'm working on a "professional social network", decentralised & privacy friendly: flockingbird.social .

I'm looking for some feedback.

Do you ever use LinkedIn or another "social network for professionals?"

What do you like most about it? What do you hate most about it?

I wanted to start a "back to basic" series for org-mode and Emacs.

The idea is to make people more aware of what org-mode has "out of the box" without rushing to use various packages and code bits: the productivity philosophy behind the "why", not just the "how."

I ended up repeating a few things I've said before, so if you find that you're interested in more details about something, look under the "orgmode" tag.

Hope you enjoy it!

Another coronavirus outbreak in a mink breeding farm in the Netherlands. Again the animals where gassed. Again the farmer get's reimbursed by the tax payer and starts over. Rinse repeat.

Do we really need mink fur this bad? When will this sort of unconscionable behavior stop? twitter.com/WassenbergFrank/st

The most ecological technology is one you use for a long time. This is especially true of computing technology, where the embodied energy is several magnitudes higher than the energy cost of using it.

The Dutch ministry of justice paid for a #privacy test of Office 365, finding a series of issues. Just one of these: 6 different companies receive user data including file names, without even a privacy policy.

tech, TVs 

Y’all, my newest housemate brought their 11-year-old TV to the house and you would not *believe* some of the features it has:
- literal 1-*second* boot up time. Unheard of
- UI responds instantly to input
- UI Design & UX is clear, consistent and well-suited to the input method (remote)
- doesn’t know what wifi or Ethernet is so it isn’t in a botnet or mining bitcoin
- isn’t sending private tracking data to who-knows-how-many companies’ servers, because see above
- doesn’t demand software updates or brick itself
- has things called “HDMI ports” for if you want to augment its functionality

How about we make 2021 the year of the return of non-smart TVs
