I appreciated this video because he is articulate, insightful, and talks about how to improve the world in a more subtle way than you may have heard before.

Modest suggestion: next time you plan on buying some luxury item (starbucks, a video game, a dinner out, etc), consider donating that amount to an open source project that you love. Not every time - you can have that frappachino tomorrow - but just this time, let's give back to FOSS.

From HN comments: "Gemini sites load so fast, it's a little crazy". Not at all, what's crazy is that we've come to accept as normal that downloading O(1000) words of text that we actually care about reading takes long enough to notice and sometimes might make your laptop fan spin up a little - in 2020!

"This current situation is almost prophetically designed to showcase the farce of our societal approach to separating work and family lives.

"We are expected to work from home full time. And care for our children full time. And we cannot have anyone outside our immediate household help. It can’t work and we all are suffering at the illusion that it does."

RT @PaulAnnett@twitter.activitypub.actor
@avfletcher@twitter.com @joelanman@twitter.com If even one person is remote, run meetings on video call where every person dials in individually. Don't book a room for those who are in the office, as being the only remote person trying to get involved in or even hear a face-to-face conversation is impossible.

I hear the "you shouldn't have to learn how your engine works just to drive a car" argument often used to counter my insistence on learning git's internals to understand its externals.

My response: git is a tool for professionals. Racecar drivers should definitely understand how engines work. Amateur users of version control systems are using the undo and redo buttons in a Google Document. Git is a professional tool and if you're a professional then you have a professional obligation to learn your tools properly.
