"Aunque acá en Argentina algunos defensores del progresismo fósil sigan hablando de “ambientalismo bobo” o “falopa”, y sean indiferentes a la estrecha asociación que hay entre extractivismo y violencia, entre extractivismo y ausencia de democracia, los datos son incontestables. América Latina es la región del mundo donde se asesinan más activistas ambientales."

reading some documents from NIH Director Harold Varmus' 1999 push for PubMed Central and what became PLoS, and it has such good energy, but you can tell how the naiveté of scientists thinking about what's good for science gets us crushed by corporations working to preserve profit

I'm reading some #japanese and this sentence is a bit puzzling:

動けば動いた分だけ疲れる。

I could understand 動けば疲れる, but I don't understand how 動いた分だけ affects the meaning of the sentence.

Help? :)

#SummerSchool 2022 

Hey friends,

For the last 2 years, we've hosted an interdisciplinary inter-time-zone all-online all-free conference for the Fediverse

So I'm gauging interest for #SummerSchool 2022

If you want to be one of the co-organizers (one of the people who makes sure that presenters have moderators and fills out the schedule, etc—we're not recruiting moderators or presenters yet), please reply to this message as a DM before 2022-06-04 and I'll schedule a meeting!

Friends, an easy step toward democratization of the economy is moving your money to a credit union. So let's say July 14th is Fediverse Move your Money Day!

In Japan this has been an important part of the fossil fuels divestment campaign by 350.org. When you choose a credit union, ask them about their investments (you'll probably be the first one to ask).

Please boost
