In the city where I live in China, a girl stands alone for the planet.

This is an amazingly brave thing to do. Emperor Xi's is a dangerous place for protest!

> The storage allows unprecedented properties including 360 TB/disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1,000°C and virtually unlimited lifetime at room temperature (13.8 billion years at 190°C ) opening a new era of eternal data archiving. As a very stable and safe form of portable memory, the technology could be highly useful for organisations with big archives, such as national archives, museums and libraries, to preserve their information and records.

Activists are Terrorists according to Spain's Guardia Civil's letter to #Github

"There is an ongoing investigation being carried out by the National High Court where the movement Tsunami Democratic has been confirmed as a criminal organization driving people to commit terrorist attacks. Tsunami Democratic's main goal is coordinating these riots and terrorist actions by using any possible mean.

Among them, they have developed an app that provides information about those riots and allows their users to communicate between themselves in order to coordinate those actions. This app has been uploaded in GitHub by the user....

Concerning this situation, and in compliance with the Law, we send this e-mail with a national court warrant attached in order to request both withholding the content and data related to the aforementioned investigation."

In #Kaohsiung, the #China-friendly mayor Han Kuo-yu had the #LennonWall supporting the protests in #HongKong removed for questionable reasons. #Taichung more than made up for that with an entire underpass at Splendor turned into a massive cry for #civicrights, #democracy and #freedom - and a serious slap in the face of Zhongnanhai. #StandByHongKong #Taiwan

Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people...

The Open Structures website is back online after a large overhaul! It's looking great :)

Open Structures is an open source modular system that allows you to build anything from shelving to a recumbent bike to a table lamp to stool, using modular, replaceable parts and standard hardware. This means you can repair and redesign any item that fits the standard, and build new parts using designs freely available online.

TIL Purism are a fake-it-until-you-make-it company, the Librem 5 is overpriced and that they are in bad shape

RT @HKNordicHearts: You can clearly see there is NO protest near the mosque. Communist Hong Kong Police Force intended to spread hate and disrespect religion. When asked by the reporter, a Muslim said this is HKPF insulting and assaulting their religion. #Chinazi t.co/NsX4GCdT8f
