Entsprechend dem #Metonischen Zyklus gab es heute vor 19 Jahren ebenfalls eine #Sonnenfinsternis. Diese war jedoch total und die Kernschattenzone verlief unter anderem über Süddeutschland. Hier meine beste Aufnahme, die mir am Schliersee gelang. Damals noch analog.

Whenever I pay fees as I send money, no matter what service I use, I get angry. Some of the Nordic countries seem to be basically cash free. Not only are all transactino now tracked but every transaction also involves paying fees to one of the financial institutions. It's like a tax you pay to a private company. Sure, cash also incurs costs, but unless the money has to be on a bank account, we can avoid all of that for a while. Not with credit cards and other electronic payment. Gaah.
I am looking for a digital #artist to commision for three assets for the mastodon client @Tusky: A generic "elephant friend", an image for the error view (maybe a sad elephant?) and an image for the empty view (maybe a sleeping elephant?). Must look good on dark and light background and fit well with material design. Artist must be ok with the assets being published under an open source license. Vector assets preferred. Commission will of course be payed.

When you kindly request that the co-working space follow German law regarding opt in email advertising and the person says 'we have a no bullshit policy and if you keep acting so entitled about your rights then I have the right to not let you in'
Factory Berlin is a good example of all that's wrong with tech today. Silicon Valley's permissionless innovation imported in to the German startup scene...
**Requesting feedback from Berliners interested in attending an anti-gentrification open data event happening later this month. Boosts appreciated! This isn't just for techies. For anyone who wants to use data to fight gentrification**
0. Would you be interested to come at all, and is it likely you would come?
1. Would you be more likely to attend on a week night for 2 hours or on a weekend day for a bit longer?
2. Would you be interested in joining a doodle for planning times that most people could come?
3. Would you be interested in a mailing list, chat, or some way of communication, before the first meeting? (Just curious, it's not always needed!)
The latest issue of c't (German computer magazine) has a four page article by yours truly about Mastodon. Thanks to @Gargron, @cwebber, Evan Prodromou, @angristan and everyone else who spoke to me in the last few weeks. We ended up scoping this one pretty tightly around Mastodon from an end user perspective, with a short blurb about the fediverse.
The online version is paywalled, but you can at least see a pretty Mastodon graphic:
