Working on to view public orgs in #gitnex for upcoming version 4.0, plus with some other improvements.

the only time i want to hear a white vegan's take on indigenous diets consisting heavily of meat, is never.

The public schools teach even less. Hawaiian language itself was *illegal* to speak in Hawaii till 1986, & in 2018, a professor from Maui (Kalekoa Ka'eo) was arrested for speaking Hawaiian in a courtroom (despite Hawaiian being an official language here).

Suite au tweet de, j'ai appris que :
👉 Il ne faut pas rincer son dentifrice (j'étais🤯).
👉 Un bon dentifrice est un dentifrice qui contient du fluor.

Du coup, j'ai fait quelques recherches et voici :

@edsu @andrewjbtw I was able to purchase the book secondhand from a shop. And then I read it and it made me really sad and disappointed. "Roads and Bridges" was very good but "Working in Public" I need to write a more thorough review but, in short, Eghbal's choices to ignore all projects that don't use GitHub, and all contribution types other than code commits, and all of the effects of venture capital on the economics of open source,.....

This isn't new but Nadia Eghbal gave a super talk at the LongNow Foundation about her book Working in Public: The Making and Maintenance of Open Source Software.

She argues that open source software is not simply a public good but also operates as a commons. This might sound obvious, but it was interesting to hear how she arrives there and her point that Steward might be a better name than Maintainer.


1. Don't be a downer in replies for no good reason.

2. No unsolicited advice.

3. If someone says something nice to you, boost a post of theirs that you like.

4. If someone is rude/unhelpful/a downer in your replies, block-unblock them to get them off your follower list (or just block them if they don't follow you).

5. Use hashtags sometimes, and when you do, click on them and boost the good stuff to federate it about.

Been listening to this on repeat since last night. 🎶
une touche d'optimisme. quelques grammes de bonheur

fucked up to me that the red fox is present on all continents except Antarctica and South America, and it's native to all of those places except for Australia.

not "foxes in general," the red fox. vulpes vulpes. the red fox in Anchorage and the red fox in Salt Lake City and the red fox in my backyard and the red fox in Dublin and the red fox in Khartoum and the red fox in Dubai and the red fox in Nur-Sultan and the red fox in Běijīng and the red fox in Tokyo

they're all the same fucking species and they're native in all of those places.

qotd: "I would not sponsor for telemetry infrastructure, btw. I prefer throwing my money into the river instead and watch it float. Much better UX."

besides cars that you don't have to drive yourself already exist: they're called 'the bus' and are much more cost effective than any self-driving car, even in a universe where an ai that actually knows how to drive exists. the only reason to prefer ai-driven cars is if you're specifically out to prevent poor people from travelling, and if you really really hate unionised labour

Signal created targeted ads for Instagram that show the personal data that Facebook collects about you and sells access to.

They were blocked.

@CobaltVelvet I queried GPT3 to continue this rant:

i would rather watch a movie about a man who makes a bunch of sex toys that eventually overthrow him than a movie about ai

I still really like the tactics the Warren Ellis survivors used to maintain control of their own narrative, and wonder if something like that would be a good third way to the rms fandom/anti fandom club signup lists going on now. >.<

Worth looking at if not familiar, since the same dynamics (and cooperative tech solution) apply here.

(boosts welcome)
