"The Internet's Own Boy" [watch Free Online]

Aaron Swartz was a programmer, a hacker, a freedom of information activist — and due to unconscionable federal prosecutorial thuggery - a casualty of suicide...and a personal hero.

Lotte operaie a Sesto San Giovanni, una fanzine realizzata dagli studenti della 5T all'interno di un progetto di educazione civica sviluppato in collaborazione con l'Ecomuseo Urbano del Parco Nord Milano. Qui il link per scaricarla: #storia #memoria #CreativeCommons #ParcoNordMilano

Lotte operaie a Sesto San Giovanni
Un progetto di classe
La classe 5T, del liceo scientifico presso l’istituto d’istruzione Carlo Emilio Gadda di Paderno Dugnano, presenta un piccolo approfondimento a proposito delle lotte operaie avvenute negli anni ‘60 e ‘70, specialmente a Sesto San Giovanni. Questo progetto è nato in collaborazione conl’Ecomuseo urbano del Parco Nord di Milano, a seguito di una visita guidata ai Bunker Breda.
Nella fanzine vengono presentate alcune manifestazioni avvenute nelle grandi industrie di Sesto San Giovanni, in particolare Pirelli e Breda. Vengono anche illustrate immagini e slogan
emblematici delle lotte operaie del tempo.
Buona lettura dalla 5T

Thanks to @ken_fallon for reminding me that I need to figure out this #licensing stuff.

I like #CreativeCommons but there doesn't seem to be an option for allowing commercial use without attribution. I used to use the "Sampling Plus" license for my music, but that has been deprecated, and didn't really work for sample distribution. 1/2

2 weeks ago

I apply #GPLv3 to #FOSS software I build and use #CreativeCommons licenses (either CC-BY-SA or CC-BY-SA-NC) for written material meant to be shared because I like to encourage broad uptake and reuse. I also support derivatives for all non-commercial and some commercial work.

I believe so strongly in this that a think tank I'm currently co-founding is based on CC licensing. Reframing the conversation is more important than monopolizing it. To be an agent of change, one has to empower others!

Last week, I got a visual prototype together of how a drumming robot should wield a stick. FROM THE WRIST! #BatmanMeme Most drumbots just pull the stick down to "deadhit" the skin. There's a lot of work to do on that part of this project, but meanwhile, there's also some basic electronics to prove the concept.

A drumbot needs a motor to flick the stick, then pull the stick quickly, but gently, back to rest and hold it there. It also needs to read MIDI note velocity and map that to the motor's useful powerband. Finally, the motor has to quickly and quietly restore the stick to its ready position.

All this requires complex motor control, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to be exact, and a microcontroller to read the MIDI Note-On data and have each part of drumbot respond appropriately.

Circuitry and basic code are proven. I'll probably end up blowing up 4, VERY expensive MOSFETs in my first attempt, but hey, we're on this earth to make mistakes, and thereby make the future. This is not a cheap project, either, and is third in my project queue, so it will take some time.

Me llama la atención el poco uso que hacen de licencias #CreativeCommons los compositores e intérpretes de #música cristiana ¿Realmente sacan cantidades de dinero relevantes por los derechos de autor? ¿No sería más útil y conforme a su misión difundir su música en creative commons?

Además los portalitos de música cristiana suelen morir de falta de mantenimiento. Sería más efectivo usar Jamendo o montar una instancia de #Funkwhale

Give some grace. When you choose to grant permission to your photos under any open
license available on Flickr, we ask that you give the reuser a 30-day grace period to fix
any possible mistake or misuse with no penalty. Failure to allow a good faith reuser the opportunity to correct errors is against the intent of the license[.]”

Actually, because Creative Commons is very clear that you cannot do this, I think it would be a great idea to get the wannabes to change their licenses. If you are not truly CC, then you can't say CC. When I'm searching for CC materials, I shouldn't have to double check if the materials are really CC.

IIRC, a big "open" textbook site had very similar terms a few years ago, but they seem to have gotten rid of them.

Tied with my dislike of the idea that "#OER" just means "available to educators" is my dislike of people who try to have their #CreativeCommons cake and eat it too.

For example: the math content linked below is supposedly "CC BY-NC", but they add conditions to modification and sharing. Among other things, they require specific PR text on *every* page.

Believe it or not but it's that time of the month again - time for my little German language
#radioShow RADIO IRRTUM! - tonight - 2023-03-18 at 8:00PM (UTC+2) on Alex Berlin, at FM 91MHz or via stream: .

Don't be afraid about that German language aspect - it's a show to raise your attention for new unheard
#music all over the genre spectrum - and exactly this music is what has priority above all other things; so if you don't speak German at all, you will still be sonically pleasured! :)

Usually the first half is more about clubby things (body), while the second half is more about what some wrongly call "difficult" music (for your mind).
Following this path there will be...

- weird
#Japanese #popmusic
- Hiphop
#Beatmaker Beatz
#Bass (#halftime, #140, Trap - that kinda thing)
- soothing and not so soothing but divine
#Music not fitting a clear definition
- (but you need one? Here you go:
#Contemporary Dancehall Jazz Dub)
#Punk for gardening
- Polish
- folkloristic
#songwriter music

A lot of this will be
#CreativeCommons licensed music — not because I am a ideologist (well - I am, but I wouldn't force that on you), but because there is a lot of really really well done stuff coming out from there which deserves so much more attention!

And again some artists being played I've discovered here, at the Fediverse. So greetings to,, and :) !

[↑↑↑ English Version above ↑↑↑]

Es ist wieder soweit - heute Abend (15.04.2023 / 20 Uhr) wird
RADIO IRRTUM! - ausgestrahlt - wie gewohnt auf Alex Berlin (FM 91MHz / Stream
Wie immer werde ich Euch gnadenlos durch das musikalische Spektrum der Neuerscheinungen schubsen:
Wobei es in der ersten Hälfte mehr um Club-taugliche Musik geht (für Euren Body), während es in der zweiten Hälfte eher um Musik geht, die ungerechtfertigter Weise als "sperrig" attribuiert werden könnte (für Euren Geist).
Folgen wir also diesem Weg und passieren dabei:

- verrückten Japanpop
- Hiphop Beatmaker Beatz
- Bass (halftime, 140, Trap, sowas - wisster Bescheid)
- mehr oder weniger beruhigendes Experimentelles (und göttliches!) Geräusch
#Musik, die in keine Schublade passt.
- (aber wenn Ihr eine wollt: Contemporary Dancehall Jazz Dub)
- Punk für Gärtner:Innen (wartet es ab, wird ein gaaaaanz flacher Witz!)
- Polnischer PostDarkWave
- Liedermachermusik mit folkloristischem Spin

Dabei auch ganz viel Creative Commons Lizensiertes - gar nicht mal aus ideologischen Gründen, sondern weil aus dieser Ecke immer wieder richtig gutes Zeug kommt, was definitiv mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdient.
Und es gibt mehrere Künstler:Innen zu hören, die ich hier im Fediverse entdeckt habe (siehe oben). \o/
Viel Spaß und bis denne!
