“This 11,000-year-old statue unearthed in Siberia may reveal ancient views of taboos and demons”

“For more than a century, the statue was displayed as a curiosity in a Yekaterinburg museum, assumed to be at most a few thousand years old.

This week, a paper published in the journal Antiquity argues that the statue was crafted from a single larchwood log 11,600 years ago, making it one of the world’s oldest examples of monumental art.”

Thing I want: a #nojs FOSS browser with an engine written from scratch with good support for HTML5 semantic elements, CSS3 and SVG.

#FreeCulture and #FreeSoftware advocacy often focuses on remixability and hackability. I think another aspect is important to talk about, due to its universal appeal: permanence.

The tools we develop, the websites we build, the music we share under free&open licenses -- _they will be with us_ as long as we care to maintain and share them.

Free culture, in that sense, is an incredible cooperative enterprise across all humanity. It is unlike nearly any other endeavor. It is a joyful thing! :)

Hey, ich werde zur meine Fotoausrüstung mitbringen und biete euch da an ein oder zwei Terminen an Portraitbilder, z.B. für Perso, Versicherungskarte oder auch einfach so, zu machen.

Das Angebot richtet sich dabei primär an Menschen, die aus Gründen nicht in ein reguläres Fotostudio möchten.

Wer möchte, meldet sich bitte mal kurz bei mir, damit ich nen Überblick habe, wie ich das organisiere.

Artists, what do you use to show your art to the world and connect to people? Internetwise, I mean? I'm hesitant to return to deviantart, and I'm considering setting up a website.

Any recommendations are welcome!

Mastodon admins: if you have trouble with a Pleroma instance and you wish for somebody to help mediate the dispute, I am open to helping with that as well. I understand both "sides" of many disputes and will try to assist with reaching a mutually beneficial outcome.

Open dialogue is the best way to solve problems before they become serious.

We really want to work together to make the fediverse a good space for everyone.

@nickfarr you should definitely do a podcast with your mom. She has such an interesting world view and you two have an adorable... dynamic?

Did you know? There are standards on color contrast accessibility for background:foreground colors (e.g. on websites). If you look at/redesign your website, take the time to drop your background and text colors in this handy tool to see if your color choices are suitable: contrast-ratio.com/#%23DF691A-

Ich trank vorhin Wasser aus einem Glas, aus dem ich am Wochenende noch Bier trank.
Vielleicht verstehe ich #Homöopathie ja auch nur nicht, aber irgendwie bin ich noch unerwartet nüchtern.
