Les annonceurs : « ouin ouin, avec le rgpd on doit arrêter de piller les données des utilisateurs. La vie est vraiment trop dur »

Rappels sur le féminisme dans le sport :
— Des compétitions de tennis IMPOSENT le port de la jupe -> libre choix des organisateurs, pas de problème
— L'athlétisme impose à Caster Semenya un traitement pour faire descendre son traitement de testostérone -> équité, pas de problème

Hey, y'all-- Facebook recently announced they're launching a "Patreon killer" service.

Regardless of your thoughts on Patreon, FB's alternative is TERRIBLE!

⚠️ 30% gross revenue fee
⚠️ Automatic LIFETIME IP rights to ANYTHING you put on the service
even if you quit!
⚠️ FB wants to give discounts and freebies whenever they like, w/o creator approval, and then deduct it from creator revenue
⚠️ FB will also control WHO sees your content and how many views you have

I just love the argument that we can't do the right thing in a free software project because doing it wouldn't be fun and nobody would want to join us. 🙄

Someone gives you a free helicopter. Awesome, right? But if you don't know how to fly a helicopter it's useles to you.

I’ve always known seating, tables, phones and lecterns weren’t built for me, but didn’t realise my car isn’t designed for me to drive and, because of that, could easily kill me.

Q : Combien faut de prescriptivistes pour changer une ampoule ?
R : On dit « combien faut-il » ou « combien est-ce qu'il faut », ce n'est pas si compliqué, après ça prétend faire des blagues alors que ça me maîtrise même pas les règles de base de la phrase interrogative…
