Here is a list of verified fundraisers to help people impacted by the BC flooding: https://www.gofundme.com/en-ca/c/act/bc-flooding
I have no clear sense of how to pick one so I did so somewhat randomly.
No wonder Jews end up complicit in the Christmasisation of Hanuka, if it's the only way to get the rest of you to notice it exists.
I realise that capitalism will always cater poorly to minorities, but I'm literally just asking for 10cm of shelf for a few boxes of candles next to the many many metres of red tchotchkes.
Of course the Sumas First Nation knew better than to trust settler hubris to keep the lake bed dry, and of course they knew where to build to be safe from what just happened: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/sumas-lake-history-1.6255693
But I am relieved to learn that that they were allowed to. There’s plenty of reservations that were forced onto the most flood and/or landslide prone land around. At least when everything else was taken from this Nation they didn’t get that piled on top. One small consolation.
My dudes @jupitersignal lay the smack down on "Web 3" and even give yours truly a little call out.
Love these guys, made my day.
I used to take a much harder position on free (as in freedom) & open source software. Rigid to the point of fighting uphill most of the time with family, clients and with my own software sometimes.
I am still a passionate and support of FOSS but now remember to breathe and focus on the most important priorities. For the sake of my health and my family's prosperity.
I look forward to a day when I work entirely in FOSS. That's the dream :) I wouldn't have to worry as much about compromise.
The Wet'suwet'en, with the help of Haudenosaunee reinforcements, are now enforcing their trespass laws and forcing Coastal Gas Link crews away from Wedzin Kwa. https://twitter.com/Gidimten/status/1460488812748886018
Although the video ends with a call to come and join them, it's not a good idea for everyone to. You have to be sure you won't be a burden in harsh conditions, and settlers need to know how not to white saviour (I heard some shiiiit from the Dakota Access fight). But anyone can donate: https://unistoten.camp/support-us/donate/
I'm so glad I decided to refactor my #Emacs configuration and give the program another try.
There are so many things about it that I absolutely enjoy and I enjoy them well enough avoid the common software pick.
Emacs is now my task organizer, work time tracker, email client, IDE & git client.
Yes, there are easier choices for all of these things, many of which objectively work better. This setup works just right for me.
