My GUADEC 2019 report.

Amazing event as usual, big thanks to the organizers.

Je découvre shiftphones.com/en/ et sur le papier ça a l'air plutôt pas mal !

Quelqu'un a des retours ?

Hate symbol in software 

The combination of Slack's shitty logo with GNOME Shell's topbar design lead to a pretty awful result.

Having to see that every day doesn't spark joy. :gribz_grrr:

Loving how that blog post is receiving praise from established members of the community, and the dickheads complaining about it are random members of the peanut gallery whom we've never heard of before. 😏

Great blog post by Chris on tolerance and what can seem like (but really isn't) a paradox:

blogs.gnome.org/christopherdav

While we can certainly do better (and there is work underway), this kind of things is why is, overall, one of the most welcoming FOSS communities to be a part of.

Alright, just posted a write-up about the paradox of tolerance. This one will be visible on planet.gnome.org, so there will definitely be some discussion about it.

I hope the Blender Foundation will use their ever increasing funds to diversify their own ranks. The systematic exclusion of women from tech and the animation industry can't be ignored anymore. There are many other issues, but combating such structures seem like a good first step.
Blender is in a unique position to address these problems and lead the industry by example within the span of a few years.
They are aware of these kinds of criticisms, so here is me hoping they'll do something about it.

@Are0h Yup. The solution is easy: Actively kick 'em the fuck out (or preferably, don't let 'em in in the first place). Doing so does not violate anyone's rights, so any excuses are purely out of indifference and just not giving a shit about the ones hurt by the inaction.

There is no esoteric and metaphysical answer that we're missing that will help reduce abuse and harassment on the web.

Ha, we just don't do it because people like being assholes to each other and in the bigoted societies we exist in, that behavior is rewarded more often than now.

I think people who don't want to solve the issue want to make it seem like the solution is hard to understand and implement, b/c in reality it isn't.

It's all just performance to keep being shitty people.

Thread, slurs & infiltrator 

There is WM attempting to infiltrate anarchist spaces, LGBTQIA+ spaces and 'left' spaces in general. I clocked him ages ago & his first post was slurs to try to see how fast ppl would try to report and test the 'free speech' on here.

Dans le guide Michelin du petit fasciste, vous trouverez la Forge. Petits plus: des citations de Zemmour au menu, des tablées de maillons locaux, un cadre charmant.🤮

Si les intentions de l'auteur·e ne se retrouvent pas dans son travail, c'est que l'œuvre a un problème. C'est si dur de l'admettre ?

En revanche, au moment où nous abordons la question des frais de mandat, @FdeRugy@twitter.com s'énerve en déclarant : « Il y a même une association qui a demandé aux députés de faire la transparence sur leur IRFM, c'est inacceptable ! Les relevés bancaires, c'est personnel ! »
