I was wondering what compute modules were. I recently started tinkering with the clusterHAT which is a HAT for adding 4 pi zeros to a raspberry pi 3/4 to learn about cluster computing.


To quote my last boss: “I don’t want to pay for that”. He drives a high-end BMW.






I feel like this is still just lip service to the privacy community. I don’t believe that any tech CEO actually cares about their users’ privacy.



Yeah, I live in the US. I should have mentioned that I don’t actually roll my eyes unless they’re going on and on about how liberals (read leftists) are bad.


What thoughts go through your head when you hear someone refer to left-leaning individuals or policies as "liberal"?

Whenever I hear someone use liberal to describe someone or something that is left leaning I just get the sense that their politics are too US-based and kind of roll my eyes because that’s not really what liberal means. Is this an appropriate reaction or should I get off my high horse?..

A conversation with a friend I just had


Thank you, Coinbase. Very cool!


Books to read besides the Communist Manifesto?

I know that the Communist Manifesto is always mentioned in politics, but what, if any, other literature should I read first if I want to understand Communism? I consider myself a Socialist at the moment, but can’t really get behind the statelessness of Anarchism…

While I don’t approve of this tactic what is happening is what I heard once while listening to NPR. That increasing the percentage of union workers throughout the country will benefit other employees because corporations will increase wages at other locations to try to prevent more unionization.


I know very little about communism, socialism, or anarchism, but is this pretty much the answer to anarchists advocating for a stateless society?


Have you tried non-existence though? I might try it depending on how bad things get here.




My partner has chronic pain and she has to go through a bunch of various treatments to find out what might work instead of just immediately getting something like an MRI to see what’s wrong because insurance won’t pay for the MRI until she proves she “needs” one. Each treatment is like a month apart, so she has to deal with pain for X amount of time until one of the treatments works.

I always felt in the back of my mind that a lot of social media “protesting” is cringey and this kind of explains it. It just seems like people are doing things for views rather than change…
