With 4,800+ unique holders of the Minter Token in the past 3 days alone, it’s time we show the dev community how to unlock #utility for their minters, at a smart contract level.

Remember, claiming your Minter Token is easy: simply head to

Let’s dive in🧵
ICYMI - Minter Token is an initiative launched by @fairxyz and @OpenSea which cryptographically certifies you have minted a specific NFT - even if you no longer own that NFT.

Each Minter Token is Soul-Bound, meaning it's not tradable and yours forever.

We’re excited by the degree of adoption across an incredible range of NFT projects, and look forward to seeing the experiences developers can build on top of the Minter Token for their #communities

Okay, seit ich die Veröffentlichung meines Romans plane, beschäftige ich mich damit, wie man #Follower findet. Eine echte Challenge, speziell wenn man zunächst noch nicht weiß, wer die #Zielgruppe ist.
#weltherrschaft #communitybuilding
Erst nach dem Release von "Ohne Strom - Wo sind deine Grenzen?" wurde mir klar, dass ich recht gut abgegrenzte Zielgruppen habe: #regional #mittelhessen, nicht nur, weil ich dort aufgewachsen bin und lebe, vor allem weil mein Roman dort spielt.
Das Gerne "postapokalyptische Dystopie" bringt die nächste #Zielgruppe dazu. LeserInnen und LiebhaberInnen von #Dytopie und #Postapokalypse!

Earlier on my #WalkForPlunkett I tweeted a pic of a former bus shelter converted into a library service. It made me look out for so many village assets no longer in use which once provided essential services, housed key workers, created employment & brought #communities together
I didn't come across any village services, businesses, or even people for over 10miles until I reached the amazing @westburyshop which was a busy and thriving #communityhub and testament to the resourcefulness of rural communities to take action themselves
The only new services or investment in the countryside I came across was the construction of HS2 - but of course this doesn't benefit the communities it cuts thru- only the urban centres at either end...

Kwati Candith Mashego-Dlamini: In #SouthAfrica, we have space for #women & struggle side by side with men. #Women need to be seen as individuals. Empowerment of women is not a side agenda, but we need to focus on how we can help them have their own space & strength. #Raisina2022
.@ctgchatter: We require political will, affirmative action, and policy changes to empower #women. I believe, empowered women, empower women.

Tips for authors and publishers to foster interaction with #OAbooks – a weekly COPIM 🧵 series

Chapter 2️⃣: Highlighting collaborative #opensource publishing platforms and authors & communities that have used #annotation workflows as part of their publishing process.

Scalar (@anvcscalar), developed by the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture (ANVC), provides options to annotate video, audio, images, source code, and text.

See their comprehensive introduction for an in-depth overview ⤵

Scalar also provides access to its own API, through which one "can mashup your Scalar content with other data sources, build your own visualizations, or create completely new interfaces for your materials.”

Tips for authors and publishers to foster interaction with #OAbooks – a weekly COPIM 🧵 series

Chapter 1️⃣: open #annotation can enrich a document by enabling multifaceted conversation between a text and its audience.

Kicking off this showcase with @hypothes_is – this #opensource project has evolved out of years of work undertaken in conjunction with the @w3c Web Annotation WG, and is nowadays featured in a variety of #openpublishing & #openeducation projects. #socialannotation

On a 🛠 technical level, a provision of plugins helps with the integration of functionality in a variety of platforms such as @WordPress, @omeka, or @pkp's Open Monograph System - platforms that are also used for #OAbook publishing

(@manijadegarcia) #Epistemology thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

While I take a break I'd love you to read my new related article with @sisterSTEM


(@manijadegarcia) #Epistemology refers to to 'how we know what we know.' #Epistemologies are systems of knowledge & knowing informed by the ways different groups of people navigate & make sense of the world & are related to what we justify based on what's "true" or "real."

Who we are shapes our experiences & therefore our reality. So #disabled people; #women; #BlackPeople; etc. all have their own #epistemologies. Like languages, groups can borrow from each other's epistemologies to build knowledge & make meaning of the world & their lives.

(@manijadegarcia) #Community thread here, discussing ideas for survival, stress management, joy & healing using the acronym ACCESS to organize the ideas.

Some ?'s I'd love us to delve into: (1) how do we use technology to build community in more accessible & safe ways?
(@manijadegarcia) (2) COVID-19 taught us that we have the relatively inexpensive digital tools to build more accessible virtual & blended (virtual + in-person) spaces for creating #community. But tools don't build community, we have to! So how do we do that most effectively?

(@manijadegarcia) (3) How can we utilize #acceptance #compassion & the tools we have to build interconnecting #communities as disabled people with intersecting identities? For example, how do we make people with "psychotic" or "personality" symptoms feel more welcomed?

…research that has been carried out. This is where #socialscience can be a leader in engaging with the public. Work that I’m doing now creates spaces for conversations that explore #severeweather risk, focusing on issues of shelter access for those without a range of resources
…we help #communities explore their options, including building consensus on alternative shelter provision, especially where funding is an issue in rural communities. We work with faith groups who have strong #trust and social networks alongside other stakeholders to explore…

Western but more importantly #African #conservation biologists and #communities have clearly evidenced the well managed hunting - inc trophy hunting - is a valid utilitarian conservation tool that is need to protect land from converting to agriculture or development /1
This is because the real and present danger for large and charismatic wildlife in #Africa is habitat loss and quality - including human-wildlife conflict - where #people are effected or killed by such #wildlife and retaliation on wildlife occurs - e.g. /2
While stories of #human hardship in living with #wildlife - and the same dynamics of wanting to develop and use land never reaches UK news - what does is dangerous mis-information from a range of sources but mainly western and #celebrity backed #NGOs /3…

The #G7 this weekend renounced its role as #globalhealth leader, @kentbuse and I argue in @bmj_latest:…

A thread on what next for global health & #healthsecurity.
Speaking at #G20 Rome #GlobalHealthSummit in May, German Chancellor #Merkel had raised the question, “if not us, who?” to end the global #Covid19 #pandemic.

At #G7UK this past weekend, #G7 responded with "Not us," committing to donate 870mn #vaccine doses when the need is 11bn.
Instead of engaging with recommendations of @TheIndPanel to strengthen #pandemic preparedness & the #globalhealth system (, strongly backed by @antonioguterres (), #G7 noted it would "explore" different proposals.

1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

Here's why more and more #associations and membership organisations launch private #digital #communities, and why yours should too:

📅Year-round cohesion: your flagship events and gala dinners matter, but will no longer be enough to guarantee loyalty and avoid member churn. We live in an on-demand, continuous world now, disconnecting for large parts of the year is no longer sustainable.
🔐Security & #privacy : hosting your proprietary information on 'free' servers managed by social media companies is leading a lamb to slaughter. Instead, they can and should be hosted within your private platform environment where YOU own the data

"Harvesting the oceans under the Blue Economy": "The #OECD suggests that the #ocean economy is likely to outpace the global economy in the next 15 years."

#GreatReset #NewDealForNature #DeepSeaMining
Under guise of protecting #biodiversity:

"Framed as perhaps the last untapped, under-explored & under-exploited region in the world, the Pacific #Ocean is set to be a contested space for resources."

#WorldEconomicForum #SDGs
"The #BlueEconomy heralds a new race to carve up the Pacific, turning the Pacific Ocean, from surface to seafloor, into a crowded/contested space. Pacific state leaders are courted w/ economic gains that are a fraction of the value of the ocean resources that will be #extracted."
