I really want to get rid of this notion of "project" and focus on the day to day creation, the wips, the failure, because I mostly never finish project because of lack of time or ressources and I don't want those things to get lost like a los certainly did

Concerns of young protesters are justified

The world's youth have begun to persistently demonstrate for the protection of the climate and other foundations of human well-being.

"We [the autors] declare: Their #concerns are #justified and supported #by the best available #science. The current measures for protecting the climate and biosphere are deeply inadequate."

This is awesome. NPR gave me a legitimate choice to accept their cookies and have a fancy experience or get the raw content I wanted with their text-only site.

Just read the OcapPub proposal[1] and seems like a good way to combat spam. I'm interested to seeing it implemented in the Fediverse.

RT @swardley@twitter.com

X : Do you have any thoughts on climate change.
Me : La La La
X : You don't agree with it?
Me : Quite the opposite. I worked in the industry in the 1990s when we had a chance.
X : What should we do?
Me : Apologise to your kids. Beg forgiveness from grandkids.
X : Is that it?

Do you earn more than 32,400USD a year?

If you do, you are the 1%. In my latest article, I give examples of ballpark ecological accounting to determine how you can offset your negative impacts on the world: carbon emissions, animal cruelty, water scarcity, waste management, and loss of biodiversity.

We can change things.

@monsieuricon I just found this: radicle.xyz which sounds exactly like what one wants to have for fully distributed kernel development.

Sure, use defines language.

Which is why I try to get people to stop saying things like 'the ask', because I don't want our language redefined to be ugly business-speak.

"It's like you said the other day," said Adam, "You grow up readin' about pirates and cowboys and spacemen and stuff, and jus' when you think the world's all full of amazin' things, they tell you it's really all dead whales and chopped-down forests and nucular waste hang-in' about for millions of years. 'Snot worth growin' up for, if you ask my opinion."

Too fucking real.

@drwho I see http as a fundamentally pull protocol, not a push one. If I'm visiting a website in a client that doesn't support images, I'm not blocking images, I'm simply not requesting them, same with all the tracking garbage. It's a misnomer to call it "blocking", I'm just not asking for them. To pretend that that's some kind of hackery and breaking the website, is disingenuous at best, as there's nothing in the way that the web works that requires websites to be packaged in a certain way.

The single biggest factor preventing FOSS from having broader social impact is not any technical issue, it's the social and humanities labor needed to make software comprehensible to non-technical people, to explain its value clearly, and to seek out the unfilled gaps where it could be more useful to more people. Esoteric software that is highly useful to only a few people can still contribute to that mission, but it does so indirectly.
