I'm giving a talk abut fear in November for our Michigan!/usr/group meeting.
Looking for some examples of fear or anxiety that developers / administrators face. I know I have my own examples to show but I want to get a few more examples.
So if you're up for it either reply, DM, or send me a note at email@example.com
Thanks in advance!
I'm Chris, an elementary school teacher in Brooklyn. When I'm not surrounded by six-year-olds, I enjoy baking whole-grain sourdough, running, tending my rooftop garden, tinkering with my computer.
I'm also into cooperative movements and collective/communal living. I think we can make a better world by dismantling hierarchies and disarming systems of power and oppression. (What does that look like in practice? Let's chat.)

My friend brought her 85 year old dad to the climbing gym today and he climbed a few routes. Came down off of one and said, "I've got to work on my upper body strength."
Dude, when I hit 85 I want to have the kind of outlook that says new things are worth learning and doing - and I can still get stronger. I also hope I laugh as hard and as often as he did today.
This morning in addition to the little dok-dok-dok-dok-dok sounds of the small child running around on the floor above I got a bathroom exhaust duct serenade of Rain Rain Go Away. So cute.
(This is all just barely audible. It's not disruptive or intrusive at all. Just the tiny bits of sound that leaks between units in a concrete building. We continue to be very pleased.)

Professional Yamaha studio monitor speakers versus various 2.1 systems for computers. Back in the day, they called a V-shaped equalisation curve a "disco smile" because was popular for disco music. It's also rather popular on home HiFi systems, where the Loudness button usually applies such a curve. If your speakers sound kind of like a cardboard box, the button merely makes them sound fuller. If your speakers are actually good, it sounds too aggressive.
"In an eye-opening talk, she details how the same algorithms companies like Facebook, Google and Amazon use to get you to click on ads are also used to organize your access to political and social information. And the machines aren't even the real threat. What we need to understand is how the powerful might use AI to control us -- and what we can do in response.
My toying around has turned into an app called Fret Mapper. Now you can click on the fretboard to define patterns that will be shifted when you change your tuning

1: (8)746 hookswitch - had to desolder it from a 1983 PCB and resolder it onto this 1972 one & realign the spring/metal bits - PO/BT changed the side the metal base of the switch lever is on over the years!
2: 4000R bell coils (also from 1983), with wiring changes for BT plug and socket make this an 8746 rather than just a 746 #telephone
Better than just putting a 3k3 resistor in series with a 1000R bell, that doesn't sound as loud with the lower ringing voltages often used today.
This is pissing everybody off right?
#ff is a lot funnier than I thought. Feel free to push that plus sign. I'm gonna announce the first gnucKl DAW challenge later this evening 😄😄😄😄😄
