Last episode, we podcasted from a train.

We skipped right past the plane, and now we're podcasting from an automobile...with screenshots embedded into your podcast player! [NF]

As a lot of you know, things in Chile aren't great right now. While my family is on the more privileged side, they're still family and they need support right now. I'm not going to be able to make it to this year as I had hoped.

But do let me know where you'll be so I can make sure the c3post gets you a nice card or sticker.

Get yourself one of those end-of-the-world-and-I-feel-great kind of loves.

I still wake up thinking I'm at Burning Man.

Thanks so much everyone for helping out my Mexican friends get to !

Unfortunately, I won't be able to be there because Burners Without Borders (who helped supply my earthquake rescue brigade) needs me at Burning Man this year.

But you can send me mail!

Very few people achieve success quickly by having consistent convictions.

Tonight's chicken and waffles thing in NYC is still on. I would say DM for location but whatever, y'all here smart enough to figure out I was talking about Veselka at 1:33 AM tonight.

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Humans are relatively simple. It's the command and control systems that are complex. Humans are becoming self-aware and rebelling against their programming, as the lies they were told fail to hold. That's how I explain the mess we're in.

(I am so shit at first dates.)

Ok braising experiment two:

~400g Tokyo Turnips with the greens on.
50ml Olive Oil (Just to season the pan)
200ml Balsamic Vinegar
200ml Maple Syrup
400ml Pot Liquor

(Yes I doubled the maple + balsamic)

Coat the pan with olive oil and add quartered turnips with the greens over medium heat. Don't let the olive oil fry. Add all other liquid, bring to boil, cover and low heat until it's done?

Reduce the liquid and make a sauce out of it.

OMFG the reduction is *amazing*

I think 1:1 Maple Syrup and Balsamic Vinegar is the key.

The greens turn totally stringy, it's like a bowl of spaghetti. I would have never thought to keep the greens on, but that's what inspired this whole trek to begin with.

Tasting notes prior to adding the reduced braising liquid as a sauce: I think this is pretty spot on, the turnips picked up just the right amount of sweetness, the greens are very edible. There was perhaps a bit too much Yerba Anis flavor, maybe I added it too late (after the boil).

“So what you’re saying is that you have dozens of accounts?”
“And servers just randomly shut down?”
“Oh all the freaking time.”
“And it works?”
“Yeah, it’s a lot better than Twitter actually.”

Ok braising experiment one:

~400g Tokyo Turnips with the greens on.
200ml Olive Oil
100ml Balsamic Vinegar
100ml Maple Syrup
400ml Asian Greens Water
50g Mexican Marigold

No low smoke fat
Light Browning with the olive oil for 6 mins
Add all other liquid, bring to boil, cover and low heat until it's done? (I'm at this part now)

Reduce the liquid and make a sauce out of it.

Is anyone interested in me livetooting figuring out how to braise vegetables with only things I harvested, balsamic vinegar and olive oil?
