We really need a project in material science or at least energy materials..
Its sad that all my put into investigating a material goes wasted if it doesn't work.
It would be very nice if people are able to their failed stuff and still get due credit...may be such an initiative also help overcome fear of publishing open access bcoz its a failed project..

Helooo,
I am a researcher in solar energy materials ( at present perovskites). Renewables are a necessity..isn't it ?
Other than that I love thinking about random stuff, watching movies, fixing stuff, travelling..etc
I use and advocate GNU/Linux and free software.
I follow socialism, marxism, openscience movements.

«He feels at home when he is not working, and when he is working he does not feel at home. His labor is therefore not voluntary, but coerced; it is forced labor. It is therefore not the satisfaction of a need; it is merely a means to satisfy needs external to it. Its alien character emerges clearly in the fact that as soon as no physical or other compulsion exists, labor is shunned like the plague.» 2/3

«What, then, constitutes the alienation of labor?
First, the fact that labor is external to the worker, i.e., it does not belong to his intrinsic nature; that in his work, therefore, he does not affirm himself but denies himself, does not feel content but unhappy, does not develop freely his physical and mental energy but mortifies his body and ruins his mind. The worker therefore only feels himself outside his work, and in his work feels outside himself.» 1/3

«External labor, labor in which man alienates himself, is a labor of self-sacrifice, of mortification. Lastly, the external character of labor for the worker appears in the fact that it is not his own, but someone else’s, that it does not belong to him, that in it he belongs, not to himself, but to another.» 3/4

The #EuropeanParliament is voting on 20th June on changes to the #CopyrightDirective.

#Article13 would mean automated content filters (like YouTube uses) on all sites. Large corporations would be able to censor and spy on all internet content, because they would be running the filters on behalf of smaller sites:

Call/email your MEP *today* to say no to Article 13, especially if they're on this list of committee members:

You know what? It would be really cool with a federated comic/graphic novel platform that supports various formats so that comic strips, vertcal and horizontal formats can flourish. Now I don't know how to streamline it with that wide support but important part would be to be able follow series and the like. I don't know how to program, but maybe someone else might find it a cool passion project. :mastohi: :mastodon_oops: :mastodon_oops:

so apparently telling musk to that if he really cares about freedom he should turn his business into a workers coop is a violation of twitters rules

There are two possibilities: Either (any supernatural force)

1. Does not exist or
2. Exists

If exists then is either
1. (tested/enjoyed people suffer) or
2. not so (can't help)

nvm, in any of the cases above, I don't prefer an alliance with god. ;)

Has anyone watched the ?
What are your on it ?
