If Democrats want to win over more non-college educated maybe talk about non-college education?

During the democratic primary debates college was mentioned 146 times. Apprenticeships were mentioned once (can anyone guess by who?).

This is despite union apprenticeships being shown to provide great results.

Non-college education disproportionally impacts the lives of the poor and ethnic minorities.

So why the obsession with colleges, universities and the Ivy League?

@martijnbraam @jkbr I like how that will support not just GNOME Authenticator but also e.g. KDE's Keysmith!

#OtD 11 Feb 1916, Lithuanian-born Jewish anarchist Emma Goldman was arrested in New York City on charges of violating the Comstock Act, for distributing information about birth control. We've made available some of her work and merch here: shop.workingclasshistory.com/c

In libhandy 1.1 we will get a better API for HdyAvatar for using a custom image. You can set a GLoadableIcon (which includes GdkPixbuf and GFIleIcon) that is then loaded, resized and displayed automatically by HdyAvatar.

@exalm and @KekunPlazas helped a lot getting it merged, thank you very much.

What I really miss about #FOSDEM? Those guys in bars in the evening that all claimed to be Satoshi :) After a few beer. Fun times.

Kaidan 0.7 is here❗
:kdenew: :xmpp:

New features:
- improved usability for sending files
- more information about your chat partner
- improved message composing and better usability

as well as a couple of bug fixes. You can see the full changelog here: kaidan.im/2021/02/02/kaidan-0.

In the last year Google has banned: the Element app, the LBRY app, and several Fediverse apps. If you get all of your apps from a single corporation, be it Google or Apple, you should make an effort to change that.

If you have an Android phone F-Droid is an alternative app repository, and it’s very easy to install! All of the previously mentioned apps have been available from F-Droid throughout being dropped from the Play Store.

If you have an iPhone, please consider other options for your next device. Apple does not respect you enough as a user to consider you possibly more capable of deciding what you should install on your phone than they are. That is absurd; please stop rewarding this behavior with your money.

We live under capitalism, not democracy. The sooner you understand that, far from being complementary, these two ideologies are diametrically opposed, and yes, that this is a zero-sum game, the sooner things start to make sense.
