I think partly I’ve gotten a little distracted by the stream.
There has been a new wave of Mastodon users and usage thanks to the possibility of [[Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter]].
Which is cool, and meant I’ve been a bit more active there. Feels like the new people brings a new diversity of content. Less niche stuff in a way.
But also I still think stream-y microblogging is not the social media of choice for me. Or maybe just one component of it. Great for networking and connecting, but (for me) a bit too much of a time sink and not good for deep engagement.
Keeping up to date with local activities, but annoyed by how it’s all on Twitter and Facebook. Thinking about some kind of [[Municipalist social media]].
Had a go with the [[telescope]].
I use it to keep up with what’s going on with organisations local to me, who are still on legacy social media platforms.
Could still do with something that works well for RSSifying Facebook pages/groups.
Also reading up on the upcoming [[Changes to councils in Cumbria]].
And finding a few climate-oriented organisations in Cumbria, like [[Cumbria Action for Sustainability]] and various local XRs. Need to look at it in a bit more detail but [[Zero Carbon Cumbria]] seems to have a checklist similar to the one from Climate Action Plan for Councils.
Apple have published their latest environmental progress report – [[Apple 2022 Environmental Progress Report]].
Attended the [[social.coop Spring 2022 Strategy Session]] which was nice.
On the personal side, I’m trying to get in the habit of doing morning pages in a handwritten journal. It’s going well so far – a good mental health practice.
Reading leaflets from local councillors for the [[2022 Westmorland and Furness Council election]].
+ [[The People vs Climate Change]], [[The Insect Crisis]], [[People like wind power]].
+ I’m starting adding notes from day-job related readings to my digital garden. e.g. [[The era of fixing your own phone has nearly arrived]].
+ It’s interesting to see some developments around [[manufacturers and the right to repair]]. Recent announcements from Samsung and Google on spare parts.
+ There is mention of [[repair and reuse in the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report]] part 3. I feel happy that my day-job is in an area that is part of the picture of mitigation of climate breakdown.
+ Despite what I’d read in previous summaries, there is more to the report than just "renewable energy, electric vehicles, low-carbon technology." Reducing consumer demand and changing industry practices is included for example.
+ I liked learning about [[energy storage]]. It seems key to a green future.
+ I liked learning about [[Climate Action Plan for Councils]]. I feel a local, municipal approach holds great promise for effecting change. It obviously needs to join to a national and global effort too.
+ E’s birthday was successfully orchestrated. We had a lovely weekend away in [[Ambleside]].
+ I’m still reading [[Cybernetic Revolutionaries]]. Need to type up some notes – maybe today.
