I wouldn’t be surprised if Blizzcon’s organizers quietly decide nobody needs a Q&A session this year.

Thank you, Tobias. And thank you to the original anonymous person who created and maintained it until now.

Modern software design philosophy: expend exactly zero effort on helping the user gain competence and mastery. Then, proclaim that users are idiots, and treat this as the core axiom of design process.

RMS pulls a serious power move (read: dick move), unilaterally appointing a maintainer to Guile without consulting the other co-maintainers or community, because the current co-maintainers disagree with him on governance lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

@kaniini The GPL only applies to the software used by people, not the people used by the software.
okay i can't do any more of this, but, again, if you do not like being exploited, don't let yourself be exploited:

1. don't contribute to 'open core' software projects

2. don't reassign your copyrights

3. carefully weigh the value you derive from contribution to a project against the possibility that any of the key players in the space may use your contribution to profit

4. if you don't feel happy about the way things are going in a project, walk.

i did it with Alpine. some say that was one of the stupidest decisions I've ever made, but my happiness is more important than Docker's bottom line.

All the #Meetup hate is justified..

Yet, I have didn’t see anyone talking about alternatives, whereas @Framasoft is literally building a free and open source alternative as we speak and they deserve every piece of attention and support for it possible.

Delighted to see that #DeleteFacebook is becoming a thing once again

aired fully today. the worst, very dangerous points made by this shit, as I think:
- "LGBT wants to legalize paedophilia"
- calling LGBT an ideology every single time
- displaying videos from BDSM March (not associated with LGBT in any way) to frighten the viewers
- "Pride March participants are paid for it and go to marches in many cities"

Just found this opensource.com article about Greenpeace becoming an 'open source' organisation. Quite ironic, since a few months ago I met one of their principal IT managers, who openly mocked our efforts to use #foss and #opensource IT in-house. Greenpeace relies 100% on Google's Gsuite. Any comparison with fair trade coffee was met with a "yeah but this is easier, we just don't care about Google's dubious side."

Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.
