happy bday, me
I am going to spend it dehydrating things, playing video games, hacking things for fun, and then meeting up with friends later.
@cwebber I believe that, in fact, we are. And we have been in the aFOSSalypse for so long we didn't even realise.
FOSS is *overridden* by white, liberal, privileged men who make the place utterly unwelcoming to anyone but them. I've lost count of the times I read sexist, transphobic, or plain right-libertarian toots from FOSS folks (need I bring up what fosstodon's admin did a few months back?)
And don't even get me started on the whole concept of BDFL, I can rant forever about that LOL
@Antanicus Yeah I acknowledge those concerns; the main thing is that I don't think it's the end of all things because I think there's a possibility for action.
@cwebber By coincidence, I'm just reading an abstract for a talk where someone uses MRE to mean Managed (programming-language) Runtime Environment. So, uh, sounds like a great party!
