Does the west even make "healing stories"? Japan has pretty much made a whole genre of it, but I can't think of any stories from America or Europe where all the characters are respectful of one another and get along, nothing terrible happens to anyone, and the purpose is just to make the viewer/reader feel calm. Western stories are always centered around some sort of conflict, and at least in my public education I was never taught that a story can be written any other way.
De-Amazoning a Kindle Fire
Today I turned my Kindle Fire 7 into a Kobo reader (by installing the Kobo app from PureApk). I just got the latest Murderbot, 'Network Effect' off Kobo. It's drm free! The Silk browser didn't want to download Kobo, so I installed FennicFox from F-droid and that did the trick. I can also read Library books on my Kindle with Overdrive now, too.

i love me some cuttlefish, i think they are very adorable but sadly overlooked so often, and among them the best is THE FLAMBOYANT CUTTLEFISH
10/10 fashion sense AND they do a great job of flashing patterns to stun their prey! you really gotta watch a video to get the full effect but they are GREAT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08p6TZSYw58
Hey fedi! Tell me about your very favorite aquatic creature, oceanic or freshwater! Include a picture if you can, I want to see your cuties and creepies. :)
The fish in is Mola mola, the ocean sunfish! One of the heaviest fishes in the world, ocean sunfish can weigh more than a thousand kilograms and measure almost 3.5m from nose to (pseudo)tail and from fin to fin. They're often found basking at the surface, but can dive as deep as 600m.
an idea of building a search engine that lists only emancipatory sources
online media is taking hudge impact on shaping our perceptions and by that influencing how we act as a society.
(if you like it, happy boosting. I really want to see that exist)
Building a network of trusted peers, that index only emancipatory and/or scientific sources [you can add more of your favorite categories]. Every search instance can choose, with whom they'd like to share a common index. Instance local search is also possible. (kind of similiar as the #fediverse functions in that sense)
...no fash, no terf, no cap, no tanky, no truthers, no....
What is also possible:
fetching the rss feed of a search, and catching every new and defined content into your favorite rss reader. (this is already possible, as #yacy is developed in this moment afaik)
New article on #lowtech magazine is about Soviet cultivation of citrusfruit in cold environments. Without fossil fuels but by using landscaping, crop hardening and and pruning techniques.
