Hello, I’m Éric, and I’m a developer working in North London.

I have many interests, and built up a list on Twitter which was eclectic and entertaining, around a variety of topics.

If you have a moment, please suggest groups or accounts which you think might be of interest.

Nous avons payé 450 000€ pour un rapport médiocre sur les 1000 premiers jours de l’enfant – alors que Boris Cyrulnik avait rendu gratuitement son rapport sur le sujet.

Is it any wonder that we have a problem with #racism in Ireland when our Government engages in 'State sanctioned racism'...
RT @TadhgHickey: And so the Irish government put on record that they perceive a qualitative difference between a white person fleeing war versus a person of colour. This is state sanctioned racism and a shameful day in our history.

I find I'm having to turn to Twitter to find resources / people in the field of (). Are there dedicated spaces / people in the Fediverse who are students / experts in the field and might be able to give pointers to a youngster who just graduated with a degree? Any leads / pointers appreciated. Thank you!

There's this technique conservative commentators use to boost their reach by saying stuff that's just obviously wrong or super racist, with the intent of people screenshotting/linking their content to dunk on it, inadvertently giving them free marketing. I've always wondered if there was a way to abuse this mechanic without being an awful person, and I think I found it. You just make casual comments about how Elon Musk isn't a actually a genius, then all the Elon simps come and boost your content for free.

Adios au créateur de « Chapi Chapo », Italo Bettiol. 96 berges. Moi j'hallucinais de voir ça, j'avais 3 ans, devant mon poste.
Le mec qui avait écrit les paroles du générique, Charles Level (1934-2015), était un compositeur sympa, il avait écrit "la bonne du curé"

I'm starting to believe the rumors that Tesla and SpaceX have management teams whose job it is to basically manage him and find creative ways to avoid implementing his stupid ideas. There is simply no way this guy was ever a competent CEO.

I'm doing a lot of research on text input devices for people with chronic joint pain and #arthritis. This is selfish. I'm one of those people.

I'll be documenting my findings along the way.

If anyone has advice, experience, or knowledge in this area please hit me up. I don't have a lot of reach on Mastodon but all of your words are welcome!

“If you can’t be in awe of nature, there is something wrong with you” - Alex Trebek

Was reminded of this during a #Microsoft event this morning. Still great.

Rosalind Franklin’s research was crucial to discovering DNA’s double helix structure 🧬 but it was James Watson & Francis Crick who received the credit & Nobel Prize.

Unknown to Franklin, the pair saw her unpublished data & X-ray diffraction images, inspiring their famous model. They never acknowledged her contribution until after her death.

How many discoveries & innovations of #women do we attribute to the men who took credit for their ideas?

This is a story that I think did not get nearly enough attention yesterday. Meta just published a report about the action they've taken against 7 more hacking for hire companies and they've included a list of policy suggestions for curbing the hacking for hire industry.
