According to leaked docs, it’s actually 30%. apple.news/AFR8E_VrnQRKroeWeMd

I'm a long-time emacs user, but I just got around to testing exwm, the emacs window manager. Kind of crazy. You use regular emacs commands to split panes, and run X programs in them. It even supports workspaces. Running programs are regular emacs buffers.

It’s here! ISSUE 02: Inoculate, hot off the distributed press. This issue contains eight creative pieces—(non)fiction, interactive media, and stories from the front lines of alternative networks built on care & solidarity.

Power is out for no apparent reason. Heating water for coffee on my camping stove.

You want people to trust science? Remove the profit motive. Decouple science from capitalism. Do away with patents. Do away with closed silos. Ensure 100% transparency and openness. Create and share in the open for the common good.

Happy to have completed this piece for Svendsolar - an upcoming Scuttlebutt gathering (crabmeet) in Svendborg, Denmark.

8 years ago, my digital life was almost entirely stored in Google data centers.

Today, I self-host a handful of services on a Raspberry Pi on my LAN and use privacy-friendly services. Small tech feels good.

I wrote a few words about the moving process 👀

cc @aral: I'm a big fan of your work. I donated to the Small Tech foundation recently, and you + Laura are an inspiration in this space. Keep up the great work!

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

In short, we need to dramatically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.

Y'all nerds might appreciate this. The photograph shows a cell phone and a folding Bluetooth keyboard, both plugged into a battery pack that was charged off of yesterday's sunlight. The phone displays three applications: a web browser displaying the reference sheet for a programming language, a text editor, and the command line for the programming language.

Very exciting: got the first photo of the first assembled version of the NXP LS1028A module for MNT Reform, open hardware designed by RBZ Embedded Logics. The processor has 2x Cortex-A72 and Vivante GC7000UL GPU, while the memory will be 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR4.
