FOSS Terminology Change Survey 

@jbauer @sjb @g Of course, by "religious concepts" you're talking about european religions, which were and remain racist as all fuck. The Crusades, anyone? When was the last time the Pope was black? Etc.

FOSS Terminology Change Survey 

I want to guage how people feel about the terminology changes (master/slave, blacklist/whitelist, etc.) being made in FOSS.

Feel free to expand on your opinion, but please be respectful as this is a touchy subject for many.

I think these changes are:

@pilum Would be interesting to see what they do with a 15" model though. The others look great!

@pilum 13" @ 1920x1080 is pretty much spot on for me in terms of usability vs portability:

I go pretty much everywhere with my main laptop and usually on a bicycle, and 13" is usually small and light enough to make that trivial.

Then my workspaces are always 2-column tiled with a readable font size, which at 1920 gives a perfect ~90 chars per line. I generally don't know what to do with more pixels than that. HDPI would be nice though. :)

The StarLabs Lite Mk III looks pretty nice, especially the glass trackpad. Wonder if it's any good?

If it was 13" I'd be seriously considering it....

Stereolab's Jenny Ondioline may well be the single best EP ever released.

Don't bother trying to change my mind — if you don't agree then you're wrong. ;)

@g My old French teacher used to say that English is one of the hardest languages to learn because the number of exceptions to the rules out-number the number of consistencies. I guess this is one of them? :)

PSA: Every time you use the word “usage” instead of “use”, a kitten dies.

The Paradox of Tolerance has been on my mind lately. Here's Karl Popper, in _The Open Society and its Enemies_

"If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them."

If you meet a free speech absolutist who insists deplatforming nazis is unethical, that means they haven't thought through the Paradox.

Does anyone use Uber anymore? If so, this long litany of horrendous things you are contributing to:

@fribbledom > Want your own profile to look like that?

Not really. Tbh I'd rather just not have to use a service that profits from detention centre torture.
