Ontario Autism Funding in 2019
Did the alleged extra funding do my family any good? No, I got a little money, which is infinitely more than the Zero money I got previously, but it was short-lived and not really significant.
#Ontario #Autism #Funding
So did I mention that no company or government pays me for the work I do?
But you can support my work if you want to live in a world where we have the Small Web as an alternative to the Big Web of Google, Facebook, and other people farmers.

@lightweight Times like this it’s usually a good idea to follow the money so I wanted to find out which corporate entities, if any, fund the EFF but a quick check turned up that the EFF apparently doesn’t disclose its corporate donors. That’s actually quite shocking. Privacy is a human right – it is not a means for organisations and corporations to shirk transparency.

"nothing has opened my uncovered-by-insurance eyes to the sadism and untenability of our for-profit health-care system as much as sharing a home and a life with a man caring for a wife with Alzheimer’s. It is untenable to expect family members of those living with Alzheimer’s to either bear a yearly six-figure burden for memory care, quit their jobs, or get a divorce." https://www.thedailybeast.com/america-to-families-with-alzheimers-youre-on-your-own
Commander #MikeJohnson's (R- #Gilead) #government #funding plan would mean a government #shutdown crisis every two weeks! He wants staggered, individual funding for every department as opposed to a single, unified funding package. This guy is really fucking stupid.

Once it has launched, and hopefully as people start to use it, we’ll review who we might want to partner with to possibly support Small Web places from the commons. (Like the prototyping we carried out with the City of Ghent a few years ago or possibly with EU funding once they see it works and FOMO kicks in… That seems to be a powerful driver in those circles.)
But I won’t be wasting another minute of my time this lifetime filling out another funding application.
After years of delivering digital products, its been eye-opening to be on the other side of the table (funding). A few of my thoughts, 5 months into my new gig: https://afhill.medium.com/ruminations-after-5-months-with-the-digital-investment-office-bdb905c4b33f #digital #funding
Instead of the #WashingtonPost running one more article about #Trump being in the lead (or perhaps in addition to this coverage), go through every #Congressperson's record -- before they run for #speaker -- and give details about their political #positions, sources of #funding, #fascist or #antifascist policies. This way maybe we'll have notice before someone like #MikeJohnson assumes the reigns of power.

On the Internet, public space is not a place like Facebook or Xitter. It is the sum total of the interconnections between individually owned and controlled places.
This is why I’m designing the Small Web to enable everyone to have their own place on the web.
And if you want to help us continue to exist, you can fund our work (because folks like the EU sure as hell aren’t).
@openfuture @glynmoody @paulk (Of course, once it launches, I’m sure we’ll be able to get funding for new features, etc., or just because – especially if people start using it – they’ll be afraid of being seen as irrelevant or missing out. But a bit too late then, no? Where were you when we actually needed you at the beginning?)
Doc Searls and Dan Lynch sat with Aral Balkan of Small Technology Foundation as he argued the venture capital model dooms most startups to unethical business practices in Silicon Valley.
Balkan explained that founders of tech projects essentially "sell the exit" to investors from day one.
With revenue growth being the driving metric, most companies get acquired by tech giants like Facebook and Google.
To build truly ethical tech alternatives, Balkan believes different incentives and success criteria are needed.
He suggested governments fund projects focused on public good rather than profit, allowing them to iterate like startups without pressure to "exit."
Is this possible?
After his return, it was unclear how much had been accomplished. On Thurs night, #Biden addressed the nation, performing the now-familiar balancing act between unwavering support for #Israel & commitment to help the #Palestinians.

Many of the #FarRight #extremist members have been adamantly opposed to the idea, saying it is #unconstitutional (like they’d know) & unprecedented. + some Republicans, including on the right, have opposed the idea bc it will probably get the support of a significant number of Dems.🙄
Hey, @EU_Commission, you listening?
(Basically a summary of what I told the European Parliament a while back*, from my interview with the folks at @TWiT yesterday.)
You can watch the whole episode here:
An alliance of academic labs and venture investors is starting a new research enterprise to speed development of treatments for rare diseases in the U.S. and U.K.
'Estimates suggest that every £1 invested in libraries returns between £5 and £7 – a staggering return of between £5bn and £6bn a year for the UK economy.'
But funding cuts continue.

#HouseRepublicans’ inability to find agreement on even a #stopgap #funding bill that is destined to fail in the #Senate again puts into focus the challenge before #KevinMcCarthy as he tries to unite his party & avoid a #GovernmentShutdown. Though #Republicans largely agree on the need to significantly curb federal spending, divisions mostly over process have given any 5 lawmakers enormous #power in the razor-thin majority.
The prospect of a #GovernmentShutdown escalated significantly Tues as #HouseRepublicans’ intraparty tensions again came to a head in a dramatic floor vote amid negotiations on a nascent plan to keep the government open.

The activists included #FederalistSociety leader #LeonardLeo &his ideological soulmate, a hard-edged activist named #GinniThomas, the wife of #SCOTUS Justice #ClarenceThomas.
“Ginni really wanted to build an organization & be a movement leader. Leonard [Leo] was going to be the conduit of that” said a person familiar….
She also had… #HarlanCrow, the… #billionaire who helped Thomas & her husband in many ways, from #funding #luxury #vacations to picking up #tuition payments for their great-nephew.
Under the #FormerPresidentsAct, the federal #GSA provides #funding for post-presidential offices, including #money to pay #staff. There are reasons — including security — that some ex-presidents choose to shine less light on their offices….
What stands out about this suite is that it has played a little-noticed role in Trump’s affairs….
It has apparently housed #classified material
Wow, this seems a very draconian and impractical stance for #NIH to take for its grants involving foreign partners! 👇
"Beginning October 1, 2023, foreign subaward recipients will be required to provide the U.S. prime grantee “copies of all lab notebooks, all data and all documentation that support the research outcomes…no less than every six months, or more frequently based on risks”"
from the MacArthur Foundation https://www.macfound.org/press/press-releases/press-forward-will-award-more-than-500-million-to-revitalize-local-news
"A coalition of 22 donors today announced Press Forward, a national initiative to strengthen communities and democracy by supporting local news and information with an infusion of more than a half-billion dollars over the next five years.". . .
Big news for #UK science: "The UK is to return to the flagship #HorizonEurope science research programme, Rishi Sunak has confirmed.…From Thursday [today], British scientists can apply once again for grants from the £85bn programme, a move that will be welcomed with jubilation from the science community in the UK which was once one of the leading beneficiaries of the fund."

it's interesting working on projects in #MedicalImaging, there are far fewer resources than I anticipated. For example, web-based viewers for #pathology images? #OpenSeaDragon or #GeoJS. At least that is what I'm seeing...
Books on web #development for pathology images? None.
There are a few cool projects that aren't web-based, for example #QuPath, but still!
