  • Yeah, I know they are. My point is, I pay for internet acces each month. I’d like that to include full access to all the internet has to offer. If that were the case I feel that what I’m paying currently would be a fair price. This should be what pays for all these services and and should cover running all the stuff if each and every company wasn’t as greedy.

    Basically if we strip away all the CEOs and shareholders, then each household paying for internet access should be more then enough to run it.

    A concept which aligns nicely with Solarpunk. 🙂

    Deserted Island

    This is the beach our 1st level characters landed on in our Eberron campaign. It's one of the islands in Shargons Teeth.

    http://bubbla.art/ - Downloadable coloring pages and paper craft by my wife!

    My incredibly talented wife is offering a selection of her work for free on her new website https://bubbla.art!

    She always has a focus on making art available to everyone by offering some of it for free. This includes #coloringpages, #papercraft, and more. It has been an absolute privilege to be a part of my wife's process. She has enjoyed tremendous success, focusing mostly on local projects in Iceland, like a card game that encourages young readers to read (http://lestrarflodhestar.is/), beautiful whale products which have been hugely popular (https://bubbla.art/product-category/whales/), and she recently held an art show. The reception of everything she has done these past few years has just been amazing! She has some of her work being sold in places such as Spilavinir, ABC Spilavörur, Whales of Iceland, Elding Adventure at Sea, used by the Reykjavík City Library in their #spilað_og_spjallað initiatives and much much more!

    I'm very happy to contribute to her success where I can. Apart from being a sounding board for some of her fantastic ideas, I have been able to assist in some of the more technically oriented aspects; most recently setting up the bubbla.art website. Initially, I built a site from scratch using #HTML + #JS + #TailwindCSS (https://tailwindcss.com/), running on #nodejs, fronted by a #caddy server (https://caddyserver.com/), all in containers in Amazon Web Services (AWS). This allowed for absolute control over each line of code and every aspect of the site, but when it came to integrating payment providers, the available solutions required a bit too much effort so I decided to rebuild the whole thing using WordPress + NGINX + #Apache + Custom #CSS. This allowed a reasonable level of control with the addition of being able to easily integrate payment providers, SendGrid emails, etc. To track the metrics of the site, I deployed the very fantastic #ackee (https://ackee.electerious.com/), a privacy-focused analytics tool. It's awesome because it gives us the numbers we need without compromising visitor privacy, running behind a Caddy server, in containers in AWS.

    Check out her site https://bubbla.art/; I'm sure you'll like what you see!

    Stumbled onto to this while looking at some art by https://dwdesign.tumblr.com/, specifically the album art https://www.instagram.com/p/CofGC50oaPE/.

    Was not disappointed.

    I don't have a clever meme, I just have some ideas.

    So I've spent a bit of time over the past few years trying to reason my way trough society breaking away from our capitalist overlords.

    Let me try to summarize some of my thinking as simply as possible; you start a second economy, one founded using Blockchain technologies and algocracy, with an utter focus on human welfare and ensuring resistance to tampering and unjust accumulation of power and wealth. You siphon the global population over to this new economy effectively stifling the old economy where the totality of the 1%'s wealth resides and is therefore rendered worthless.

    The above is by no means a complete summary and there are a bunch of other concepts loosely associated with this such as environmental sustainability, transhumanism, degrowth, fostering small communities etc.

    I've written about DACs, one of the components of the above here: https://sturlabragason.github.io/blog/2023/07/04/Decentralized-Autonomous-Communities.html

    Tangzhong - making simple bread better

    oventales.com Tangzhong for Bread Baking - Recipe

    Tangzhing is a roux made with flour and water at certain proportion. It makes breads softer and lasts longer without spoiling. Try making this and adding to your bread and see the difference for yourself. #bread #roux

    Hey!

    Recently while trying to get GPT4 to give me some clever info on how to easily make better buns I learned about Tangzhong. It's just 1/5 flour to water in a small pot and stir until thickened and drop about half a cup into your dough. It does wonders for my very simple buns and also awesome to add to Snúðar (https://vallagrondal.is/snudar-betri-en-ur-bakariinu/) 🙂
