Finally came up with a second chapter for 'Social Contagion'.
Slight mention and use of #left4dead. (But it's more about the current pandemic.)

Looking at one of my first #writing projects because I'm re-writing it. Was definitely struck with pure inspiration when I wrote it. But there also so much I would discard or revise entirely.

Hi !

Maybe it is a mistake of the RTM translation, but currencies with a finite monetary mass are no debt currencies, they are just non-libre currencies.

- they are issued by a small group of humans: miners, founders of the currency, etc. This doesn't respect the spatial symmetry principle.

- as time passes, the currency becomes always less available for users (be it because of owners greed or because of units loss). This is contrary to the time symmetry principle.
Matograine mastodon (AP)
"debt" currencies refer to currencies for which units are issued through credit, such as euros, dollars, etc. They are one type of non-libre currencies.

All non-libre currencies lead to inequalities, and eventually structural crisis of the currency system.

Okay. I see. I was referencing this chapter when I was writing the blog.

The book doesn't yet have a glossary for a quick reference of definitions. So in the example, Bitcoin wouldn't necessarily be a debt currency, in an abstract use of the term. But it would share the characteristics and consequences of temporal and spatial asymmetry with debt-currencies?
Matograine mastodon (AP)
BTC issuance is based on the imaginary model of rare metals : easy to issue in the beginning, more difficult to find with time, and with a fixed quantity.

We know for sure that rare metals currencies lead to crisis, take 1929 for example, while having been extracted and used as currencies since 3000+ years. BTC extraction is reduced to 150 years, no surprise it will go through structural crisis due to issuance model (not even considering the energy consumption).
Matograine mastodon (AP)
To me, debt currency is _better_ than fixed monetary mass like BTC or gold : at least, _some_ humans can decide to create more money when the new generation needs it.

The problem is that only _some_ humans can decide it. They decide what are the main values for this generation. With libre currency, _all_ members create the currency at the same rate and can decide what is value and what is not.

Hi everyone, I have been in another instance on the fediverse for some time but I think that I will be more comfortable here, so I moved in.

I am an engineer with passion for #computers, #programming who is always learning something. I like #freeculture, #freesoftware and #freehardware.

I like to repair and assemble computers, then I install on them #GNULinux and give them away to family and friends.

Glad to be in the fediverse!

Updating the backpage of Mnemosyne's Heretic. It used to have a Monero address for donations, but the new page will have Ğ1 instead. This is how it looks so far. Not sure if I should do more or keep it simple.

I'm setting this as a writing challenge to myself, but y'all are welcome to join in if you like. 27 prompts. Use them for flash fiction, microfiction, or whatever else you feel like. And have fun!

Plain text version of the prompts list is available here:
hashtag 27 days 27 stories – Flash fiction writing challenge. This is a graphic prompt and I'm afraid I don't have enough characters to write out everything here. Details in plain text format are available in the link attached to this post!

Prompts look real fun to participate in, but nothing really comes to mind yet when looking at these.

People are talking about #cryptocurrency, so I guess I'll talk about mine: the wallet has an avatar and pseudonym feature (outside of the blockchain). I also use a vanity address.

With the former you won't have to worry about branding and making a catchy name, but the WOT distance rule only goes so far. I live far from France as well, but I still try to participate on ğchange.

a humanoid creature seemingly composed entirely of brass instruments, with only human hands and feet visible, holding a tuba like a cannon. it menaces with horns of metal

The only good argument against ID voting is that voting is gay, and our leaders should be decided via trial by combat.

What sci-fi prediction are you very confident about in the next 50 years?

That is, if you brought up the idea today, people would say it's sci-fi, but you have high confidence it will become a reality.

Maybe a manned mission to Mars (with the intention of surviving for a few days or weeks).

Perhaps tourism-based space tours. Basically privately owned spacecruises that take you on a trip around the Earth or moon.

As others said, controlling computers entirely with your mind or advanced cybernetics.

tfw. at my school the students' council forced the faculty to use Zoom for teaching, even though there is a jitsi meet instance running on faculty servers...
I understand it 😥 some times the ignorance let this situation happen, maybe the school buy many Zoom proprietary licenses, maybe only for the name, you know "Zoom, the magical video conference platform". and they don't wanted to look stupid for inverting in something that they already have, maybe that's the reason.

I know how it feels, in my school they have a BigBlueButton instance and they are forced to use Cisco Webex, maybe for the same reason 🤔 .

Anyway you know what and why those programs are better o worse; so use this knowledge. some person don't know what is jitsi. be the best that you can be 😊
