This is happening today – join us :)👆

@aral Did I say how lovely you two are on this picture? 😊

@panais Aww, thank you :) For full disclosure, it’s two pictures, taken separately :) (With us alternating as the photographer) :)

@aral Really good to see @elementary getting some exposure in here, they're more than worth it.

@aral looking forwards to joining this evening. Where I work, I sent around this open letter put forwards by CONSTANT vzw:

constantvzw.org/wefts/distant-

But wasn't able to have many conversations on the subject. I also find that the Digital Solidarity Network's approach has huge value:

@colm Will check them out (first link is 404 for me)

@aral

Sugar, don't know why that 404 might be, alternatively, the early form letter is on p. 89 of this publication:

@aral ... "CIO of the city of Fontaine..."

I believe I read a complaint, somewhere last week, about the CEO of a city in the US. This... seems... like a related concept. Suddenly the 'CEO' of a city or county seems much less US Capitalist Dystopia Disaster and more "something that occurs elsewhere, and may be quite common."

how very... thought provoking and likely something I should put away in the back of my mind for a rainy day when I have no projects. (read: HA yeah not happening)
