most towns and cities are basically this. if you removed all the commerce, there would be very few places left to go. this is something i'm keenly aware of given my financial situation. i stay home more than i should because of this. indoor meeting places where no one expects you to pay for anything are pretty rare.

Mastodon needs to get over the fact that the fediverse is bigger than just Mastodon

Last Saturday, I sat in a crowded ballroom at Caesar's Forum in Las Vegas and watched Sickcodes jailbreak a John Deere tractor's control unit live, before an audience of cheering Defcon 30 attendees (and, possibly, a few undercover Deere execs, who often attend Sickcodes's talks).

the Norwegian Minister of Energy expressed frustration at the general public in an interview recently. everyone wants more affordable electricity, he said, but no one wants new hydropower, no one wants wind power on land and no one wants it at sea [and nuclear and coal are completely out of the question, and the country isn't ideal for solar].

i mean, the man has a point. it has to be generated somehow, but how do you do that without disrupting ecosystems? the reason people don't want more hydro or wind is because they disrupt the environment and ruin the scenery (which is a major asset of Norway).

even transporting the power is troublesome. no one wants giant power cables crossing a beautiful fjord. also, even the cruise tourism is a bit of a problem because cruise ships are dirty. i have heard that there are fjords with smog problems because of them.

@ambivalena Bästa! Tog den här bilden för ett par år sedan. Blir glad bara jag tittar på den.

this is the kind of high quality journalism that is sorely lacking from today's news environment

I'm seriously impressed with TV series. Managed to capture that Neil Gaiman feel perfectly.
