Well Richard Stallman, founder of free software and the GNU project is going around defending MIT professors who participating the Epstein sex assault ring; from student protestors.

I think it's important when people, even leaders in your community do this sort of thing; that they are criticized.

Honestly, it pains me to say it, but free software has to be bigger than richard stallmen. Its time, probably past time for him to step down.

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

The thing to say about UB ports and Ubuntu Touch is the installation process. It is the ONLY easy to install phone OS I have ever seen. Ever.

If Ubuntu Touch had better battery time and more assets to test with hardware it would be awesome.

Mark boosted is looking for a new maintainer!

If nobody comes forward by 2020, it'll be forced to shut down. Please boost to spread the word.

Note that this is the podcast-sharing website: I'm not sure about the status of the app, but I think that's still doing fine.

Happy #portfolioday! I'm Sylvia, an illustrator and concept artist. I love to paint ancient, sacred, psychedelic art and commissions. You might know me from my Ubuntu Illustration series, NOWHERE (our game in development) & my tarot deck in progress.

I developed a modicum of respect for my MP @VictoriaPrentis when I saw her backing Rory Stewart. However, it appears she's now supporting Boris Johnson, which is bitterly disappointing to see.

The fact that the @Conservatives are looking at a lying, adulterous racist and saying "he's our best choice for leader" tells you all you need to know about the party.

Regarding "open source" versus "free software"... I understand the distinction deeply, but I think being strict on the terminology weakens the free software argument. Pendantry turns people off. On the other hand, using the terms interchangably while pushing a free software philosophy does a much better job at weakening "open source". It puts the principles first and the terminology last. Principles are compelling, pendantry is not.

Ooh Link's Awakening is out in September. I might have finished Breath of the Wild by then!

Given the fuss about Michael Gove, has anyone asked if Boris Johnson has ever taken cocaine, or are we just assuming?
