I'm Peter from #Brisbane where The Cat runs the household. A pretty wide range of interests and always keen to learn new stuff.
Probably have too many subscriptions to streaming channels but have a goal of a minimum 26 books a year to make sure I'm not always staring at a screen.
I tell people the main reason I go to work is so I can go on holidays as I love to #travel
I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at https://mch2022.org
Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.
Today, the Bonfire team is excited to announce our beta release 🔥🎉

energy market and supply
It’s increasingly frustrating the way the Australian media and politicians refer to the energy market as if it’s a normal commodity that you can choose to use or not use.
Energy generation and supply should never be in a market, it should be an essential government service but governments of all colours have repeatedly sold off asset after asset. The fact that the price of Australian domestic gas is linked to the export price was a failure by the government of the time.
