Introducing Small Technology Foundation, Site.js, and Tincan
@aral exciting! You've got my support.
@djsundog Thank you :)
@aral I wish you (both) all the luck.
@manuelcaeiro Thanks so much :)
@manuelcaeiro Thanks, Manuel :)
@manuelcaeiro Haha, I should check if I’ve already replied to toots before I do :) Well, triple thanks :)
@aral this looks exciting. Here’s to gaining traction against the monoliths!
@paulkruczynski Thanks, Paul – here’s to that :)
@aral hey Aral, congratulations. I’ve noticed that in the sentence ”the latest evolution of Hypha, Indienet” both links lead to localhost.
@celareartem Ah, thank you, will fix asap (still on the plane and running out of bandwidth again and now there’s quite a bit of turbulence) 🤢
@celareartem Hey Artem, thank you (and thank you for reporting the broken link, I appreciate it) – fixed :) https://ar.al/2019/08/26/introducing-small-technology-foundation/
@aral bug report: the og:description tag includes some custom css (for that article at least)
@valerauko Thank you, appreciate the bug report – fixed :) https://ar.al/2019/08/26/introducing-small-technology-foundation/
This is really exciting. Supporting you, in what sounds like climate change movements in the 70s before everyone knew what was happening.
Minor typo on the article:
"After five years of working on this problem, I am more excited that ever with where we are and the progress we are making."
I suppose you meant "more excited _than_ ever".
@karanja Thanks so much. That gives me hope to read. And thank you for reporting the typo – appreciate it – fixed :)
@aral very excited about the idea. But there is small bug on the small-tech webpage. On the bottom of the page, the "fund us" button leads you to the 404 error page. Cheers
@lapor Thanks, Kristijan and thank you for reporting the issue – fixed :)
@aral Nice 👍
@gvenk Thank you :) <3
@aral Besides the links to localhost, the "my family has invested three homes to enable our work"-anchor doesn't exist.
@desikn Thank you, appreciate the heads up – fixed :) https://ar.al/2019/08/26/introducing-small-technology-foundation/
@aral I've been reading about the money in your page and it's really interesting to see how you share about it with no problem.
It's not common to see that.
What makes no sense to me is the price of the rent. It's fucking crazy.
My city (Bilbao) is the same price more or less and it's one of the most expensive cities in Spain. In Spain you can also buy a house for 20k, depending on the place.
@aral Anyway. Thanks for sharing it all.
@ekaitz_zarraga Yeah, tell me about it. It’s our greatest expense by far.
@aral Article 25.1
Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, **housing** and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
@aral that’s wonderful work you’ve been doing! Thank you and all the best for what’s next! 💚
@stragu Thank you so much :)
@Jelv Thank you – should be fixed on all the pages :)
@aral This looks really cool. I'd love to see site.js bundled on something like Freedombox to make it even easier.to roll out to more people
@jamesmullarkey No reason why not :) Although perhaps Tincan would be a better fit in the future. But yeah, part of the fun is seeing what it enables. There will hopefully be things I haven’t even thought of :)
@aral They don't have a web server yet as the standard freedombox so possible gap in the market? I'm looking to put my website on my box and make as small as possible so I can power it with a solar panel. Static site could be a good option. :)
Also good for a DAT site if it's small of course.
