Hope more people will toot about #OEGlobal22. If not, we’ll summarize afterwards, for all the #OpenEducation practitioners and advocates, here.

From MARCcold on birbsite:

"I do not want a smart home, I want a HOME OF FOOLS.

There's no point in my refrigerator getting ideas above its station.

Your job, refrigerator, is literally to chill. You are not a hopeful laptop waiting for its big break."

Does anyone know what's happened to the Tiny Spark podcast and host Amy Costello?

It is (or was) a production of Nonprofit Quarterly, and was IMO hugely useful for a candid view inside the nonprofit / NGO / charitable world.

Both have been silent since December 2021.

NPQ aren't responding to multiple email requests.

Boosts welcomed.

@JohnJClimateMarcher @ericireland @TonyStark not only do you pay for Fox even if you don't watch it, you likely pay more for it than other 24/7 news stations

So, are there any services in the US that carry most of the usual channels without paying the Murdoch tax?

I just checked Sling and now *both* Orange and Blue list Faux Spews

"Groups that operate under the guise of inclusion are serving the greater goal of crypto that keeps the whole thing afloat: finding ever more fools to buy in so that the early investors can take their profits."

"[Black Americans] are, however, almost twice as likely to describe cryptocurrencies as a safe investment. Fully 30% of black investors believe crypto is regulated by the government (14% of white investors thought the same)."

“.01% of bitcoin holders hold 27% of all bitcoin! That’s 100x the wealth concentration of the regular economy.”

Next time someone tells you cryptocurrencies and blockchain are about decentralisation, laugh in their faces. Loudly. While pointing at them.

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

Please boost: People who are at high-risk for COVID-19 complications:

1. What could conferences better do to support you?

2. What policies or resources would help you decide whether to attend an in-person conference?

Just looking into the Eco fascism scholarly work a little bit more since the #BuffaloMassacre highlights how the right wingnuts will use that against us in their efforts to block climate action by discrediting us.

👿 The Biggest #DataBreach

Real-Time Bidding

On average, a person in the U.S. has their online activity and location exposed 747 times every day

4,698 companies are allowed by #Google to receive RTB data about people in the U.S.

Europeans and U.S. Internet users’ private data is sent to firms across the globe, including to Russia and China, without any means of controlling what is then done with the data

I also loved picking up this resource, The Ad Hoc Accessibility Beyond Compliance Playbook at the Accessibility Beyond Compliance session.

Also, a great opportunity to get pointers on in public meetings during the Q&A! (TLDR: budget, advanced planning).

Cheering on the in-person NC Campaign Finance panel presentation from afar!

Code for America Summit recordings coming soon to their channel!

Yesterday's second Summit was virtual attendance at Code for America's hybrid event.

I was disappointed about the cancellation of "Equity pauses: Small, practical methods of baking bias reduction and equity into the research process" with Risha Parikh of JustFix . These seemed like useful ideas for a current project.

However, that freed me up to check out the session about Code for Asheville's court reminder project. Nice to have options!
