Going to just leave this here, because frankly, everyone deserves to see this lovely bike.

Anyone need a part time Vala/Python/Java/etc. desktop, web developer? Or AI/vision/robotics research assistant? I'm currently looking for some work to pay the rent while I finish off my PhD.

My CV is here: mjog.vee.net/curriculum-vitae/

Boosts appreciated!

So this is what I have been working on for the last few years: hri.edu.au/ – the Facility itself, not just the web site. :)

Need an experiment space for HRI research? We have one of the largest and most highly instrumented in the world, and it's available for you to use.

Why go on strike to fight climate change 1/n 

This year, 2019, was the year where the news articles about the effects of global warming started sounding like the backstory for the post-apocalyptic disaster novel that will be our lived experience of the 21 Century.

Do you think we're in an ecological crisis?

If not, please DM me if you're open to hearing me argue that we are.

If so, do you think the current social system is going to voluntarily change itself enough to prevent it?

If so, please DM me if you're open to hearing me argue that it will not.

If not: if there is a climate emergency and the current system is not going to change itself to fix it:

What are you going to do about it?

I was just over excitedly rambling to starwall about how amazing precolumbian agriculture was with companion planting, biodiversity of crops to stop disease wiping them out, terraced farming in the Andes with different species bred to grow at different altitudes. white people fucking destroyed so many amazing methods of agriculture with huge monocultues and livestock that ravage an ecosystem in that they eat EVERYTHING and destroy it. Australia was very much the same but even more cool in how unique their agriculture was before white people literally made it into the desert it is now in just 200 years

I dunno, just fuckin paying people to quit their nonsense jobs for websites or Jamba Juice and instead paying them $30/hr to install solar panels, plant trees, build high speed internet, retrofit buildings and build up public transit would solve a lot of problems I think

RMS and the free software community 

I'm happy for people to send HTML email if they want, I'd just ask that they do it in away that is mindful of the people that receive it, and am happy to provide tools that support that.

Speaking of bad opinions and toxic "thought leaders", I was curious when I saw useplaintext.email and went to go get Geary included in the list. However, after reading the "Why is plaintext better" section and scratching my head as the bad arguments, I realised who wrote it, and that it's just yet another attempt to shame everyone else into working in the way the author wants them to work. Screw that.

Grateful for many brave people in the free software community and excited for the future ahead of us.

Linux is more than Linus.

GNU and the FSF are more than RMS.

How about we see what kind of movement we can build if we centre the kind of people that the assholes and creeps of F/LOSS drove away?

tfw the model checker's code starts starts staring back at you and doesn't seem happy: `<{},_,{}>`

I wrote about how we, F/LOSS lovers, need to drop toxic 'heroes' and need to either reform or move on from organizations that WON'T help v2.jacky.wtf/post/intersection

I wonder how bad it would be to just not quote messages at all when replying in Geary, then expand the tools it already had for selective quoting to make it easier to discover and use?
