I went through my books and decided to get rid of about 40% of them. Most of those are German, but some are English – if you want any of them, you can have them for just the shipping costs. The list (you can filter by language) is here: books.rixx.de/giveaway/

pretalx now has a Funding page that explains how you can support the project financially, if you want to, and it's linked whereever the documentation refers to missing features. docs.pretalx.org/funding.html

If you meet a polycule for the first time, please be polite and keep your stereotypes to yourself. Nobody wants to get asked who is the top, the bottom, the up, the down, the charm or the strange in the relationship.

I grouped the books on my book site into lists, so it's easier to find the good stuff: books.rixx.de/lists/

There are broad and boring lists like scifi and fantasy, and then there's the good stuff, like "Space Monks": books.rixx.de/lists/space-monk

Complaining is good, actually: drmaciver.substack.com/p/you-s

David makes some really good points about complaining as a driver for building connections and community trust. Generally, his (weeky) newsletter is super good, and I can recommend reading it.

I've accumulated a long-ish quotes.txt with interesting/relevant/funny quotes, mostly from books I've read. What would be a good way of sharing those? Daily posting twitter bot? A page on books.rixx.de? 🤔

Today we announced that I'm building venueless.org together with @rixx, @rash, and the pretix.eu team. Let me know what you think – and please share the word with anyone you think this might be relevant for!

Plugging time!
A few friends, who are already building pretalx and pretix, and me got together and started building a little something to host online events, complete with chat (text and video), live streams and q&a sessions, with a lot of other fun stuff planned. Of course it integrates with pretix for tickets and pretalx for the agenda already. Read more here: venueless.org/
