@ward I run and explore a lot, didn't think of editing openstreetmap!
Remember when Facebook and Google waged cruel warfare against their users with their "Real Names" policy that unilaterally declared what a name was (and was not)?
They were carrying on the work of the Global War on Terror. After 9/11, the world saw waves of official name-change requests.
The requesters weren't changing their names: they were preserving them.
This is magic, I'm astonished ...
Wouldn't use it in a daily basis though, at least not over more traditional options like w3m and lynx but still, it's a technical achievement I can't recommend more
@coldwave If you know the editors, I guess MDPI journals can be okay. They do publish quite a bit of rubbish & the publisher does not seem to find it important to fix such problems. http://variable-variability.blogspot.com/2013/10/open-access-journals-meteorology-climatology.html
"a paper in the MDPI journal Life solving the puzzle of the origin and evolution of cellular life in the universe led several editors to resign, but not to its retraction. That such a paper can be published is unbelievable. I do encourage people to read this article, it is enormously funny."
what's with MDPI and their journals for anything, anyway? https://www.mdpi.com/about/journals
Not sure how good the quality control is but I love it actually, just open enough to get some out-there ideas in 'Entropy' occasionally.
US climate survival
We're doing research on what cities we might want to move to as we change jobs. We found this article mapping data on the impact of global warming as it transforms the human climate niche in the United States through 2070.
It also has a sortable table of the compound climate risk to every county in the US along six categories over the next 20-40 years (heat, wet bulb temp limit, farm crop yields, sea level rise, very large fires, economic damage).
@crash I think these are the same lists that appear in the fedilab app - so lots of potential to be found by people who didn't know to look on trunk
Today I was reminded that Trunk exists.
If you're looking for more people on the fediverse with whom you share common interests, this is a good resource. The only names on here are of people who opted in and requested it.
Subtoot, give kids rights
Parents are inherently authoritarian because it's an ageist hierarchical institution
I mean, it's true
I know giving children rights and actually caring about their consent rather than assuming that children should be treated nonconsensually until they turn 18 seems incredibly radical to some people, but like, no for real
Fucking give kids rights, stop treating them like property. Allow them to choose their caregivers
Interesting article on right wing/ far right literature, and the way it is conceived and made popular.
"Zwang als Methode: Microsoft installiert ohne zu fragen Office-Apps"
Aktuell werden wohl ungefragt sog. Progressive Web App-Versionen der Office-Programme über Edge installiert (Windows 10). Microsoft wie man es kennt.
