- Pretty excited to be reading in Free, Fair and Alive about the links they make between complexity science and the Commons.
- I studied Evolutionary and adaptive systems way back when, and its nice when various themes of my life link together.
- Preston is hiring a Social Value and Partnerships Officer. "The Social Value and Partnerships Officer will be responsible for extending and embedding social value activity and developing an Anchor Network." Looks like you basically work on Community wealth building all day, looks pretty good!
- I've got RSS-Bridge set up to pick up RSS feeds from Facebook pages now. I subscribe to them in Aperture and can read them in my a social reader e.g. Indigenous . That, combined with some Twitter feeds coming from Twitter Atom, is letting me keep up with what's going on locally pretty well so far.
- Hey, it works for Facebook groups, too. Nice!
- As I've mentioned before (Getting a phone), whenever I get a new (second hand) phone, I try to cross-reference repairability with LineageOS support. sustaphones is very handy in that it does just that (for battery replacement, at least).
