@neauoire In Sweden there is a site called Fruktkartan (=the fruit map), an open database where you can add fruit trees on public land, https://fruktkartan.se/. This is obviously another step, but somewhat similar.
1. #copaganda program for middle schoolers. 👎 2. Teach kids how to use the bus system and ride bikes for transportation. 👍 3. Get donation so they can buy a bus (and I guess give up on bikes and public transportation?). 👎
@humanetech@duncan_lithgow@tblock Ads means: buy this! And we live in a society where everything is going downhill. Just ask the UN. Biodiversity is lost at tremendous rates, people are exploited in masses, inequality is rising, waste is increasing by a lot, degradation of nature overall is increasing, climate change, and so on. And yet, ads are telling us we should keep on consuming endlessly. In 2019 humans spent double the amount of money on ads than they spent on renewable energies.
So I would argue the "tracking" is not the biggest issue with ads at all. It is the "ads" themselves, that are a result of our trade based society. A society that all it values is trading, this for that.
And yeah, on top of this all, ads encourage those who make them to hype anything, lie, deceive....
Families with non-typical (ND?) children who can't do typical average American things must have it rough.
Families with non-typical (ND?) children who can't do different-than-average things (hiking, camping, athletic stuff) when the family is surrounded by people who do those things...well, that's pretty rough too.
This isn't trying to compare the experience, but I can only speak from experience of one group.
I wonder if there's an initiative somewhere to list very common electronic parts that can be found with recycling older devices, or components that are interchangeable due to similar pinouts or function.
Boosts more than welcome and open to ideas ! I also feel like small time manufacturing companies, DIY hobbyists and builders may be interested in this, so I'm not closed to the idea of building such a thing.
Over 4 billion people use the Web. Fewer than 10 million people use the Fediverse.
If you're a developer and wish to make the Fediverse more popular, building Fedi tools for users already in the Fediverse will barely change that number. Building Web services that just happen to have Fediverse integration will make for a massive change.
