I actually get a little annoyed by the decline of r/me_irl.
It was such a nice sub with tons of fun selfdeprecating humor, and now it's just shit. Why did the mods allow this?
Is there a r/real_me_irl or something where I can get my dose of selfdeprecation nowadays, without going all r/2meirl4meirl?
The #FreeSoftware movement needs more artists! It needs more graphic designers, UI/UX peeps, people who can draw, people who have a good eye for beauty and usability, people who can design logos, etc.
*ALL* the artistic people are important to the Free Software movement
As of right now most free software tends to be ugly and difficult for newcomers to use. It tends to have weird looking logos or hideous ancient looking color schemes. Artists are the solution. #FreeSW has the coding down, design is next.
