Kickstarter: "Classics... but make it gay" art book 

Do you need more gay art books in your house?

"Classics... but make it gay." Now on Kickstarter.

Successfully funded in two hours. It is happening.

"Our goal is to create an art book full of famous works of art you probably recognize, but we're making them gay, trans, and POC inclusive!"

I volunteer as 'IT person' for a museum in its early days, ( - @EICAS).

I would love to connect with other "museum people" and "museum IT people", here and elsewhere.

Any boosts/recommendations welcome!

Another job that could be cool if you like bikes, live in Oakland, and don't want to work more than 15 hours per week


Saw the news that Tesla is now accepting Bitcoin payments for cars, so I looked up some figures and did some math.

According to Tesla's own figures, a Model 3 saves 30 tons of CO2 emissions over its lifetime compared to a traditional car. A Model 3 costs 0.69-1.21 BTC. Mining one BTC results in 257 tons of CO2 emissions.

For the next time someone tells you Elon Musk is saving the planet.

"The wealthiest western nations have wiped their hands clean of any responsibility to slow a pandemic they helped magnify and spread. Rich countries with 14% of the world’s population have secured 53% of the best vaccines. Almost all of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines will go to rich countries. The Moderna vaccine will go to rich countries exclusively; they are not even being offered to the poor. In fact, nine out of 10 people in poor countries may never be vaccinated at all."

It takes elite liberal skills to justify this.

Absolute support for enforcing strict moderation to support and protect marginalized prople. Yes, also if that encompasses defederating from instances that don't enforce their instance rules. Those pose kind of the basic contract for federation in the first place.

Thank you, admins and mods. Thank you for making the fediverse truly a better place than birbsite! 💖 :sparkling_trans_heart: :purple_sparkling_heart:

"It is damage without gain. This means that the US economy could in theory be scaled down by a staggering 65% from its present size while at the same time improving the lives of ordinary Americans, if income was distributed more fairly and invested in public goods."

Hey! #SolGarden is a tiny but growing support community for #ADHD, #actuallyAutistic and other neurodivergent people, self-dx or professional. It is meant to be a supportive, inviting place to discuss issues and get support specifically related to neurodivergence, or anything connected to our lives, health, interests. It centers people of color and our moderation team is composed entirely of BIPOC people.

I've had interesting discussions there on subjects ranging from #ttrpg to disclosure and accommodation in professional environments.

If you’re interested, check out our COC at and toot using #solgardeninvite which the mod team monitors.
