- I love koreader and feel like it is a critical piece of software. Ebook platform monopolies like Kindle and Kobo have control of information. koreader lets you liberate your hardware from them. I hope I can soon use something like Open Book and have libre hardware, too.
As a society, we need an open source device for reading. Books are among the most important documents of our culture, yet the most popular and widespread devices we have for reading — the Kobo, the Nook, the Kindle and even the iPad — are closed devices, operating as small moving parts in a set of giant closed platforms whose owners' interests are not always aligned with readers'.
- I think IndieWeb is an example of Nested-I and Ubuntu Rationality as per Free, Fair and Alive.
- Not unrelatedly, Jack Jamieson's dissertation on the IndieWeb is called Independent Together: Building and Maintaining Values in a Distributed Web Infrastructure.

- Listened: Kate Raworth on Why Our Times Demand 'Doughnut Economics'
- This is a lovely interview. Raworth is full of energy and very inspiring. I never finished the book yet (a reflection on me, not the book…) but Doughnut Economics sounds very Commons friendly.
- Listened: The Sunset of the Californian Ideology? w/ Richard Barbrook
- Really excellent interview with Richard Barbrook. He talks about the Californian Ideology and where it stemmed from. It it was to be updated now, he says it would be the Shenzhen Ideology.
- Also really interesting to hear about his work on games and how they can be used for political purposes and training. Talks about Guy Debord and his A Game of War. Makes me think of some of the Tesa Collective games.
