I didn't have the guts to take a picture of this checkpoint when heading Southbound from Mandan/Bismarck, but this is what it looks like when you are heading back Northward from camp. Notice the concrete barriers. Notice the National Guard. What you can't see from this side is the sign that informs you that this is an "information point". (See? Not a military checkpoint at all! It's just an information point! George Orwell is shaking his head in the Otherworld and saying, "I told you so." ) #mniwiconi #standingrock #waterislife #techwarriorcamp

Much too tired to write text for these pictures right now, but I figured I'd share the images with you today at least! Love to you all from the camps at Standing Rock. Standing for Water and standing for Life! #NoDAPL #MniWiconi #WaterIsLife

The Water Protectors at Standing Rock need YOUR SKILLS, especially if you are a medical professional...

This is a fun auto-movie made from pictures and movies of our trip to Florida for the OSIRUS-REx launch. It's too bad that the algorithm didn't notice that some of the images were terribly blurry, and it also picked exactly the wrong moment in the launch video to clip in. You see just sky with no rocket. HA!

Why does Instagram need to know who I'm talking to on the phone? This is a case of gathering too much information. You are either using it for nefarious purposes or don't care that someone else can you use it nefariously . Either way I don't like it .

I'm heading to North Dakota in a few days to support the #NoDAPL protests with my technical and other skills. I will also be bringing some supplies in my van, and once I get there I may be ferrying people and supplies about as needed.

So far I have raised $340 of my $500 goal. If you would like to help out with a few bucks towards this trip here are two ways to do that:

1.Square Cash. You don't have to sign up or have the app to do this. You can go to
https://cash.me/$lishevita
And follow the directions to send however much you'd like to send. Please include in the note that its for "September Trip".

2. Gmail. You can send money through Gmail by creating an email to lishevita@gmail.com and then clicking the $ sign in the lower toolbar on Gmail's email compose window. Please include in your email that its for "September Trip". (See https://support.google.com/mail/answer/3141103 for further instructions)

NO FEES!
Both of these options ensure that money will be transferred to my bank account within minutes with NO FEE on either end. That means that what you send me is what I get as opposed to GoFundMe where there would be 7.9% lost in charges.

ACCOUNTING:
As I get donations, I'll add comments to this post to update on how much has been raised. My goal is $500. Money above what I spend on fuel and food for the week (so I'm not just adding a mouth to feed at the camp) will go towards things needed for the camp and protest. I will post an accounting of what is spent so that you know exactly where your money is going.

WHAT ABOUT GWOB?
Why is this not going though Geeks Without Bounds? Because in this instance I am "taking a week off" and going as a private individual. I'll definitely spend some time doing computery things, but I may also help with a hammer and nails on the kitchen building project or I may get busy preparing herbal tinctures and salves or providing basic first aid for the community living in the camps.

Once I am there I won't completely turn off my GWOB-brain, and if there are things that Geeks Without Bounds can do using our communal expertise in technology for low-resource situations and tools for activists, I'll report back to the GWOB community and we'll coordinate that SEPARATELY.

THANK YOU in advance for your support!
