Are thereanyone in the Wikipedia/Wikimedia community that's specialized in contributing by fixing up photos by others before uploading them to Commons and using them in articles?

That would be a great way for someone to use their skills to contribute, IMO.

I've taken a lot of pics from parks around Oslo this summer, and want to donate them to Wiki*, but they need a bit of fixing up to be as good as they can be.

So many amazing Linux games in the Humble Double Fine 20th anniversary bundle!

It wasn't the first grossout image on the web and it's certainly not the worst one, but it's got first-mover advantage that made it absolutely iconic.

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science

Why do I feel so strongly positive aabout this action? Data breaches or modification have huge externalities, and insecure-by-default deployments are a huge part of the problem:

One of the first publicly known examples of a Meow attack is an Elasticsearch database belonging to a VPN provider that claimed not to keep any logs.

Other targets include #MongoDB #Cassandra #CouchDB #Redis #Hadoop #Jenkins, and unsecured network-attached storage devices (NAS).

Facemasks in the new Gnome store is fun!

But, this is yet another store with merch for a good cause that don't say anything about how their stuff is produced.

Since the clothing industry is terrible, with inhumane, dangerous conditions, even slavery, and terrible environmental impacts, I just don't understand why so many take so lightly on this.

Want to know what all this Harper's letter talk is all about?

If you can get past the first 8 min of baby and parenting-talk (you're allowed to skip it), then this podcast episode is a really great discussion of it.

"What this letter is outraged by is that people have a voice and is expressing their pain. The good, old days they're wishing for is just the time when voices that where hurt by statements like Rowlings where silenced"
