Nachdem das Parlament mir meinen Auftritt verboten hat, lügt es jetzt auch noch (siehe Ende des Artikels). Mir wurden keine Alternativen für einen Auftritt angeboten.

Linus Torvalds: Git is a distributed version control system, which means even if you lose a remote, you still have your local copy, so your code is safe, unlike centralized VCSes.

Developer Community: wut?

Microsoft: Hmm. How about you use our Visual Studio Online and push it to GitHub, both hosted on our computers, so that you don't have a local copy?

Developer Community: Yaay! Such innovation! Very cloud! Much wow! 🎉

Trump: Thou shall not use US services.

Developers: Where's my code? 😭

Der Europäische Gerichtshof hat erklärt, dass meinem Sitznachbarn Carles Puigdemont und seinen beiden katalanischen Kollegen der Zugang zum Europaparlament zu Unrecht verwehrt wird. Eine Ohrfeige für Spanien & meinen alten Freund, Mussolini-Verehrer Antonio Tajani.

The illogic of the "paradox of tolerance" argument is mindblowing. If we are not prepared to tolerate the intolerant, then we are fundamentally incapable of defending a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, because we *are* the intolerant, we are the people a tolerant society needs defending against. Classic example, it is on the basis of the "paradox of tolerance" that so many atheists justify their islamophobia.

To those people who really believe Microsoft is (or even can be) a friend to Linux and Free and Open Source Software... I encourage you to watch this: youtube.com/watch?v=duaYLW7LQv There may be "open source" people who think they're making a difference to Microsoft in the US... but they're deluded. They're driving a wedge that's splitting FOSS communities (and that's by design).

Erst Millionen Menschen in die #Armut schicken und dann den Anschein erwecken, nichts damit zu tun zu haben. Jede/r kann seine Position ändern, aber gerade als Verursacher wäre etwas Demut angebracht. Der @Der_Postillon macht den kritischen Job der Medien! der-postillon.com/2019/11/goer

Data isn't gold, it's uranium. Companies stockpile and refine it because of the great power it creates. But the industry is largely unregulated and creates hazardous by-products. When it spills it's almost impossible to clean up and when it explodes it leaves a wasteland behind.
