open source software development advice
If you do a thing in an open source project, and you have a hard time doing it because it's not documented, after you finish doing the thing... document it. If the project has a wiki, put it in the wiki. If it has a docs repo you can write to, put it there. Or at least blog about it so search engines can index it.
Please don't leave the solution to languish in a chat log somewhere.
Can't wait to see the throngs of bigots losing their shit and imploding at this news.
@lulucybrelu "In a way, the Chernobyl disaster reveals the true extent of our environmental impact on the planet. Harmful as it was, the nuclear accident was far less destructive to the local ecosystem than we were. In driving ourselves away from the area, we have created space for nature to return."

Imagine a Native American community who had a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages and ancestor's graves, the people made to do bastardizations of their sacred dances, wear mock 'sexy feather headresses' and entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hours a day 7 days a week, living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that is just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii
re: software union dream, hypothetical striking at facebook
with the google walkouts under our belt, i think the day a software union can support an international lockout is nearer than ever. but the problem was the chief agitators had no union to fall back on, no org outside google that had their back, so google could harass them to wit's end until they stopped agitating. demands for ethical tech must accompany demands for humane labor conditions: without both you get neither.
but where do you start organizing? facebook? of course, you organize wherever you can. but the first fights you win are small ones. co-ops and dev shops, who support union efforts at mid-sized startups and esoteric infra firms, who support bigger fish until even folks at facebook know that someone's got their back when they say: no more!
software union dream
had another dream about a software union. this time about a workers org with lawyers, technical standards, work groups, apprenticeships, standard contracts, etc that fought with strikes and lockouts to produce and protect ethical software, and to assert and fortify humane labor norms. someday ✊️
it's a doxxing community. it's suspended.

The length some people are willing to go to, just so they can willingly endanger their kids and everybody else… 😠
Shitty (literally) capitalism
This… this has got to be a joke, right? RIGHT? 😱
Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.
"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"i don't want you to drop it"
"It's made of glass, and if you drop a glass thing it can break"
"because glass is brittle"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"
Selon les informations de Mediapart la police recourt à des drones pour surveiller des étrangers placés en rétention, au moins dans un établissement à #Rennes.
Les Centre de rétention administrative (CRA) sont des ignominies, Centre d'internement sans justificatif ni justice, immondisme extrémiste de ce qu'il y a de pire dans les sociétés humaines.
Et comme il y a tellement d'impunité pour les tortionnaires, ils ajoutent des drones à cela.
There is a new optional feature in the master branch called authorized-fetch mode, which requires all fetches of ActivityPub resources to be signed, which in turn allows to reject fetches from domain-blocked servers.
Enabling this right now is not a great idea because current Mastodon versions don't sign all requests, so some functions would be impacted, a slow roll-out is advised #mastodev
