I was yesterday by the eye doctor and they put some drops in my eyes that made me see blurry, and when I could finally see the stuff on my desk I found this note 💚

And I want to share it with all of you because all of you deserve to read that!

No idea how good/useful it is, but this may be relevant to some people:

So if you are really interested in new sustainable ways of structuring whole societies, you need to read Dark Emu.

A chapter in that is about society and governance- there is good evidence that Aboriginal Australia existed for up to 60,000 years as a peaceful agricultural rules based society. Oh, in warm homes btw. Obviously without money, living communally, in careful management of the environment.

The point is, it's not theory. It worked, for millennia.

Just finished up a collection of small paintings, trying to do something with my feelings about the kind of inherent lack of interface between my painting work and the sociopolitical clusterfuck we're living in while I do said painting work.

Still feeling myself out about these, and whether and how well they get where I was aiming.

I always wanted to make one of those "paperchild" cutout doll things... so I did.

(except a lot of those are kind of creepy and pervy, so let's have a sci-fi paladin doing something cool instead)

silkscreen kit (basically the screen)
ankle weights
a framed print (not great quality, but perfect size for another print I have that is)

have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?

simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!

because OCRbot runs on, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!

check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!

I think the thought I'm internalizing today is, "Given the apparently impending nature of the next election cycle, I need to prioritize fleshing out and living up to how I want to communicate online. all evidence I know says that decentralized federated platforms are going to be even more exploitable than legacy social media, by those who will be seeking to exploit online platforms, and no one in those platforms' communities seems to respect that, and most believe the opposite, eesh."
