Hey Europeans, there's a European citizens initiative going round right now for universal/unconditional basic income.
The deadline has just been extended to the start of May.
Be cool if you signed it!
@wyatwerp I am having a hard time understanding your question and the sentence after it. They seem to contain lots of hidden assumptions I don't understand, and indirect accusations towards us which I certainly do not appreciate.
What is the "MIT e-mail-based slander" you refer to, what is the "fabricated twig that broke the camel's back" you think was left out, and what is the "fabricated prudity in fashion"? Also why do you think that we at Igalia would find any of this convenient at all? I think our statement is pretty direct and not "circling around" anything, unlike your question and statement.
I really hope I am misunderstanding your unfriendly tone, please tell me so if I do.
If it helps, here are some links with more information about RMS's sexist behaviour, which is an issue in free software for a very long time.
Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!
This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.
#GNU contributors: consider joining!
#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!
Igalia's statement on RMS and the FSF.
> "We at Igalia are dismayed that Richard Stallman is back in a leadership position at the Free Software Foundation, after being forced to resign 18 months ago due to a pattern of sexist behavior. After all of the efforts of the community and FSF staff to build an inclusive movement for software freedom, we are baffled that the electors of the board chose to reinstate Stallman without any explanation, much less an apology or remediation for past behavior. [...]"
If you have a github account and you're interested in #foss, #activitypub, and #federation, could you be a dear and go star/fave my fediverse server project, #gotosocial? The link is here: https://github.com/gotosocial/gotosocial
Normally I don't give a shit about faves and boosts and all that crap, but this project is important to me and I'm looking to set up some kind of Github sponsor thing for it, so stars on the project would be really really appreciated and help visibility!
Boosts welcome. Thank you! ❤️

@dumpsterqueer Unfortunately we don’t currently have any golang/scala projects I think, but I will double check. 😊
@ioa Thumbs up Igalia for being such a model not only as an organization that builds key freedom-respecting pieces of software, but also as an egalitarian cooperative! <3
People working on web engines:
This year our (remote) Igalia WebEngines Hackfest will be early May - I can't wait! 🤓
Did I mention that we at Igalia are hiring? We're hiring! Join our respectful egalitarian flat cooperative structure and let's build free open source software together. ❤️
For students we also offer a CE programme:
Several areas of work are possible.
We're very remote-friendly.
It's worth noting that the arguments self-righteous people use in attacks on people's preferred pronoun "they" are entirely invalid. The singular "they" has been in use since the 14th century.
Not that this adds anything though, hateful is hateful, and so are the attacks on people's personal preferences concerning themselves.
