Introduction

Every month, we retire the pinned community meta post from the last month, and create a fresh one with updated news. We summarize the state of the instance, and create a space for public comments and discussions that don’t merit their own meta post.

Software Status

There have been some smaller updates on the Wiki and Movim last month, and we added a new Voyager frontend for mobile use.

For June, it looks like the long awaited Lemmy v0.19.4 will be released with a lot of bugfixes, so there will likely be a short scheduled down-time while we upgrade our instance. There will be another announcement on /c/meta about this once we know more. Edit: Upgrade completed on 2024-06-09.

Community Highlights

With the start of the summer, maybe it's time to start that DIY project you always dreamed off? Or you found the perfect Buy it for Life item to share? But maybe if it isn't quite that durable, you still have a great Fixing story to tell? If anything, Anti-consumption might be your thing.

Alternatively, now is a great time to start with In person Activism, or at least plan a nice Solarpunk Travel this summer? If camping and hiking is your thing, don't forget to share pictures of The Great Outdoors.

Special Welcome to Feddit.de refugees

We regret the technical issues that brought you here, but it's great to have you on board! Willkommen ihr Zuhausies 🥰

We have been following the technical issues that caused this lengthy partial outage of feddit.de for some time now and hopefully they will find a solution or make an alternative German language instance soon.

Slrpnk.net actually had a similar situation in November 2023, which luckily only caused 12h of down-time, but it was pretty stressful for all people involved. Since then we have been testing out different means to let more admins have remote access to our servers, however finding the right balance between security and ease of use isn't easy. Especially means to increase security such as fail2ban and two-factor-authentification tend to lock people out with the worst timing as people make errors in unfamiliar and stressful situations. But I think we found a reasonable compromise now and will soon give it a try.

Open discussion

It’s now your turn to tell us what’s new! Any topic related to this community, our infrastructure, or the Fediverse at large is fair game. If you’ve created a new community, this is a great thread to tell us about it. All comments will get extra visibility up until the beginning of next month. Got questions? Ask’em!

Since 2014, West Jackson has been the home of a remarkable and inspiring project to build a solidarity economy, economic democracy, and Black self-determination called “Cooperation Jackson.” Co-founded and co-directed by the brilliant and charismatic Kali Akuno—who joins us for Utopia 2/13—Cooperation Jackson is a model of an alternative way of life that has already spawned other projects coast to coast, from Cooperation Vermont to Cooperation Humboldt in California.

What makes Cooperation Jackson such an important case study of concrete utopia is that it is so richly three-dimensional—along the axes of history, theory, and practice.

Temperatures are rising as summer kicks off, and psychological scientists are sounding the alarm on what to be aware of in warmer temperatures. It remains to be seen whether summer 2024 breaks the records of last summer: In the United States, heat domes baked the Midwest; El Paso, Texas, saw weeks without a day below 100°F; and Tampa Bay, Florida, issued its first extreme heat advisory. In November 2023, Phoenix reported that at least 569 people had died because of heat-related reasons over the summer.

Extreme heat days are an inevitable consequence of a warming world, and things are not cooling down. Globally, 2023 was the hottest year on record, and the Met Office—the United Kingdom’s national weather service—predicts that 2024 may be worse. It could even be the first year on record to surpass 1.5°C of warming above the preindustrial era.

It was really great to be outside again. Just two days, but we walked a lot, eat hearty dishes and had fun!
