The most wonderful smart people I've found are those that presuppose everyone else is just as smart, if not smarter, than them and we've all just had access to different information.

Today was ... interesting. If you followed me for the past months over on the shitbird site, you might have seen a bunch of angry German words, lots of graphs, and the occassional news paper, radio, or TV snippet with yours truely. Let me explain.

In Austria, inflation is way above the EU average. There's no end in sight. This is especially true for basic needs like energy and food.

Our government stated in May that they'd build a food price database together with the big grocery chains. But..

Regular reminder: if your site or app doesn’t work in Firefox, it’s broken.

I have closed Twitter and deleted the app from my phone. Now I need recommendations on who to follow here. I am interested in #climate, #energy, #airquality, #sustainabledevelopment

Three #Mastodon / #Fediverse tools that I discovered recently and that are quite powerful:

- #Fediview – A configurable algorithmic timeline for your feed.
