A brief reminder to the technical people on my timeline that technical skill is also a form of privilege. If you're trying to Save The World From Capitalist Authoritarians, your plan needs to include a 14-year-old highschool dropout as a use case.
eesh, the grammar and spelling in some of my toots is embarrassing 😳
@CobaltVelvet yeah i get the last bit. especially for things like security algorithms.
however, say for some fancy widget on a web page, there seems to be an expectation that you'd share the source code for that, versus just enjoying it for what it is. it doesn't feel to me like making art and not showing it--you are showing it. it's like showing someone you're art, and them demanding a detailed explanation of how you made it. you don't owe them that in my view. it's up to you to decide.
unpopular (?) opinion: keeping your source code secret--i.e., not sharing it--is good.
funny how Silicon Valley people say "crush it" to mean "do something well". the idea that the only way to do well is to destroy something is baked into their language
