Tax cuts for rich don't increase economic growth 

Yanis Varoufakis: tax cuts for the rich can't make wealth trickle down to the poor, because those tax cuts don't increase economic growth at all. Rich people and companies given extra wealth don't seek, nowadays, to invest it in increased production. Instead they manipulate markets.

LIVE NOW: Just a man, a piano, and the esoteric practice of pairing poetic words and phrases with a sequence of acoustic musical tones and rhythms since 2007. Every 🔁 boost 🔁 helps free the relationship between artist and listener from Big Tech!

If you have an indepdently hosted WordPress blog, you can turn it into a Fediverse server using a special plug-in. This means that people on Mastodon etc. can follow your blog and interact with it.

You can install it on your blog by logging into the WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New, then search for "ActivityPub". The plug-in you want is called "ActivityPub" and is by Matias Pfefferle.

You can also see more info about it at wordpress.org/plugins/activity and the author is on the Fediverse at @pfefferle

Once it's installed, you can find the blog's Fediverse address in your WordPress dashboard's Users section, it's listed at the bottom of the user's profile options. You can copy and paste this address into the search box on Mastodon etc to interact with that user's blog.

You'll also see an ActivityPub section in the Settings menu.

Note : This plug-in only works on independently hosted WordPress-powered blogs. It doesn't work on Wordpress.com free blogs.

Any project or reference to recommend for charging stations for homes?

Let me explain. I’m tired of seeing these chargers for smartphones and other tablets plugged all over the apartment. I think if we had one main location to charge our devices it would look tidier and also be less "in your face". Anyone has any nice looking setups here to recommend or any strategies you have experimented with?

Thx #askFedi #askFediverse

New feature soon in Krita: Lambert Shading.🔆

It's a blending mode made by Despair for better shading using a single layer. I gave feedback to adjust the blending mode during its development. The blending mode is really versatile as you'll see in this quick demo I painted:

Is anyone aware of a privacy redirecting service for , in the same way redirects ?

Thanks!
