ME: nice to meet you! but before we exchange contact info, please give me a list of all the people you are directly linked to.
YOU: what? what business of yours is that?
ME [patiently]: My professional network is a spanning tree. I need to make sure that I'm not forming any loops that would result in packet storms. Surely you understand.

#UNICEF wants to invest in #FreeSoftware "The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, #OpenSource technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children and young people", further "UNICEF requires that all code, content or hardware developed and tested be open source and be publicly available."...

@bhtooefr @feonixrift I was just wishing for such a thing earlier today. Chrome's bookmarks are primitive; Firefox's are buggy; the commercial bookmarking and link-sharing sites are increasingly either dead or unappealing for various reasons. A federated alternative seems like a reasonable possibility. There are a few projects that look to be reddit-like which might be adapted to a more del.icio.us-like format.
A fascinating interview on anarchism's relationship to Jewish culture, religious practice, and Zionism; its erasure within Jewish scholarship; and why it’s so often dismissed as a political tendency. https://jewishcurrents.org/conversation/the-lost-world-of-yiddish-anarchists/?fbclid=IwAR26l5GzZ4iJ4-NO-aod9JbNqvQfYB_15DCUaKS2gfOjivDFN5Bk3gQF4Qs

In our cyberpunk *present* where megacorporations ruin lives, create global fascism, and end habitability of Earth past 2030, w/ extinctionary-capitalism, cliche 80's retrofuture is escape from futurelessness. And yet, true *punk* - resistance to overwhelming oppression - seen in works like Neuromancer, The Windup Girl, Sorry to Bother You, & mass-protests at pipelines and Paris streets, is more necessary than ever.
@feonixrift Somewhere I've proposed some sort of automated federated Yahoo/DMOZ clone, where your friends curate things through tagging, providing context, and sharing...
(Which I think would end up presenting del.icio.us/Pinboard-style stuff in the categorized Yahoo/DMOZ-style format?)
@feonixrift We're implementing the primordial Google (how many folks link to a site for a topic) using meat-brains instead of silicon counters.
