One of Google's historic core competencies, just behind counting lots and lots of links to things, is text analysis.  And they don't bother to make their calendar put more than a token effort into saving us time dealing with dates and times... https://mlncn.withknown.com/2015/google-calendar-is-insultingly-bad-at-saving-us-time

My new project is aimed at exposing media's obsession with the criminalization and victimization of Central American migrants.  Together with other mediamakers, we want to amplify stories that demonstrate migrants' organizing efforts to protect each other, to hold their governments accountable and developing systems for systemic change.  Please help me to shift the narrative.  Join me. Support this campaign. We only have 22 hours to meet our goal.  We are so close to the finish line.  $182 left to raise. Thank you!

This is very close to what my goal with People Who Give a Damn / Visions Unite ("the most power possible for all people over our own lives", which requires mass democratically-moderated communication and fantastic coordination tools), i hope +Garret John LoPorto can pull it off.

Would you give $20 for that feature/fix/documentation you've always wanted in a module/theme/distribution? Would you help build the space where you can have that impact?

The truth matters. Any reasonably alert nine year old paying some attention to international politics can realize that, when it comes to governments, more often than not "both sides are wrong". For the few who refuse to realize this, the truth hurts; for the rest of us, the truth is essential to making the best choices individually and collectively. Thank you to those who care about truth.
Good news! The Syrian babies allegedly killed when power was cut off from a hospital in Hama are actually Egyptian and very likely alive.
