Behold fellow dyne! Solstice is upon us! Dynes across the northern galaxy rejoice as darkness returns with a license to geek granted by the murky seasons.

Ok, to be fair, light is nice. It's a balance. Complementary. Enjoy the crescendo, southern galaxy!

πŸ•ΆοΈ Nice weather, sibling!

Radiant blue sky, a fresh breeze. Beautiful bodies moving in the street, smiling. A dream for many dynes in the northern hemisphere, living in places with droughts, floods and landslides. But the hopes shine ever radiant in the heart of the planet; action is taking place. Some dynes are even conspiring to set a better pace to the climate transition. It's over due, but not too late. In this episode, PACESETTERS held a first information day for dynes from the entire galaxy to attend. PACESETTERS acknowledge that Art saves and Culture feeds! Creatives from all casts, working to better the conditions of the near future, succeeding or failing, are invited to take a survey. This with the goal to gather data on what strategies work. Or not. For everyone to take, share and improve.

Is this you, fellow dyne? Then come swim in the OCEAN (Open Call for Emerging, Advanced and Novel Practices)
The next date is Mon, Jul 1st 2024, 3 - 4pm CEST
Info Session: Open Call for Emerging, Advanced and Novel Practices | PACESETTERS

✌🏽 Friends of Europe

It's hard to dismiss the loud chants coming from the tinfoil cats. Songs about the growing influence of Β©orporations over the delicate fabric of democracy. It is observable on planet Earth as a whole. All the bases are belong to them now, and almost everyone tossed the ToS in the loo. One dyne creates a textual punch to all of that and gets published by Friends Of Europe. Planet dyne is a friend of planet Earth. Unconditionally. But it's hard to see where the relationship with planet Β©orporation is going. It seems rather toxic in it's one-way dynamic. Seeing how much influence lobbyists have on parliamentary politics. After all, lobbies aren't restricted by borders as Nation states' legislation is.

But only people can save the universe! That includes you, fellow dyne! Do the right thing and please share this article to your extended network if it resonates with you. A must read either way.

Democracy at risk: media warfare and the role of technology in modern elections - Friends of Europe
The think tank for a more inclusive Europe

It may be hard to see from the lense provided by the Β©orporate machine, but everywhere, resistance is organizing. Getting ready to confront lobbyist in this new frontier that is the World Wild Web. Dynes like you can build space rockets, repair computers, clean up rivers, cook delicious food and create beautiful art. Action is always radical, regardless of the scale. And what ever you do, make sure you look after the weaker peers. They're not slowing us down, they're teaching us perspectives.

πŸ–ŒοΈ Painting a song

One dyne shares an interesting talk from the Libre Graphics Meeting in 2012, by Amir Hassan. In it they present about SoundFumble, a tool for live sound generation with GNUimp. Drone aficionados beware: you will have a hard time keeping away from the dancefloor! The video has overtones of nostalgia. Do you remember the time when dynes would go to a meetup with a running nose? Say whatever about the pandemic, but it did make us wash our hands again and care about each other. No offense, Amir. The dyne writing this wasn't any better πŸ’œ just contemplating the progress.
