Ich hatte gestern dieses Seminar, in dem ich mit den Studies ein wenig auf unserer eigenen #Mastodon-Instanz herumgedaddelt habe. Hier mal ein erstes Fazit:

Phrases I have no desire to see when setting up a computer for the first time include, but are not limited to "sit back and relax while we work our magic" and "we're still working" and "still setting things up"

(I'm (temporally) setting up Windows 10 before installing my linux distro of choice, in case that wasn't obvious)

"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves. "

I got my own pleroma instance running 😊
But I don't really trust it yet - throws 500 errors under Mastodon FE 🤔

7. When it is time to stop, it is time to stop

Learn when you can't code anymore. Learn when you can't process things anymore. Don't push beyond it, it will just make things worse in the future.

Wow, I just installed YunoHost on a virtual server and tested some "apps" - this is so genius! Selfhosting different services on one machine just via some mouse clicks 😍

Kudos to @yunohost 👍

Ich möchte grade vor Scham im Boden versinken ... 🙈

Habe grade den Account für die Webseite angelegt. Brauchte einen Beispiel-Account zum Erklären des Fediverse und da kam die Idee ... 😁

Playing around with the new image editor (with Emojis!) while I wait for the upgrade to finish 😁

Just cleared over 1GB via journalctl on my Laptop - I wonder why doesn't clear the logs by default 🤔

Whatever, now there's enough space to run the upgrade to Fedora 30...

... which is currently at step [900/5727] 😁

let's talk about #greenwebhosting
#greencomputing #greendatacenter

have you ever transformed or built a sustainable digital infrastructure that runs on #renewableenergy or used energy-efficient hardware? how does it look in detail and how can someone transform to it?

Very nice analysis of the shortcomings of behaviour change at the level of the individual.

Better to focus on systemic failings, rather than guilt-tripping people for making a wrong choice, when it very often isn’t really a choice at all.

Sometimes when it's hard to keep up, it's a better use of your energy to pause instead.
