Finally launched the kickstarter for a book of my illustrated haiku poems! It's like my passion-project, so any pledges/shares are super appreciated. Also, check out the page if you want to watch a video of my battling being camera-shy/curbing my gesticulation.
Here's the final cover I designed by the way.

Yesterday @hafnia was talking about true facts that seem fake and I think the one I'd most like to share is:
However you are using language is almost certainly fine. You have been made to feel inadequate by powerful people telling you they're right and everyone else is wrong but language is democratic: we all know best what's best for us and we're already using it. The suitability of different kinds of language for different contexts is a big strength, not a weakness.
Pol, elections: Show more
I see I and my party are suddenly being referred to as right-wing pro austerity neoliberals on some bits of social media, which I have to say is a serious burn on my own awful history of personally pushing political campaigns like, uhm

There is an election coming up, it seems. Sigh.

It doesn't make you "more left wing" or better to call for incomplete policy agendas, and it certainly doesn't make you better than people who ask you how your resulting system would deal with X or Y case.
You can of course admit that your idea is aspirational or just borne of "let's pull the system down because it's shit", and that's totally understandable, but at some point, for things to change, someone (or a group of someones) needs to design systems that do the thing you want.
Heya everybody! Just a friendly reminder that the due date for #TalesFromTheFediverse is next week! If you, for whatever reason, can't make the deadline, just tell me, and don't worry, there's always next issue (if and once I announce it). If you need *just* a wee bit more time to finish, also tell me, just know that *at the very latest*, I need it in by the end of the month.
If you're not contributing, the comic'll be out on May 5th!
And as always, boosts are appreciated!
