J'ai écris sur pourquoi je pense que tu devrais lâcher facebook. Avec quelques trucs pour t'aider en prime!

C'est quand même un long texte pour moi qui est habitué à juste écrire ~3 paragraphes. Ça m'a pris beaucoup de temps. J'aimerais savoir ce que vous en pensez.

Quand tu comprends qu'on est juste une gang de singes qui se pensent bons, debout à la surface d'une petite roche qui file à 30000 km/h dans le vide, y'a pu grand chose qui te dérange dans la vie.

@syntacticsugarglider I really *really* like the Motivation section of their readme, it is well worth a look for every language designer. (and really, every program that is used by other programs is a language)

"[free software is] free as in 'free puppies', not 'free beer'. Adopting open source solutions, like adopting a puppy, involves some time spent on care and feeding."

, found this passage yesterday while reading Trevor Owens's "the theory and craft of digital preservation" and I won't stop thinking about it for a while, probably

"A newly discovered form of malware delivered to victims via adverts in search results is being used as a gateway to stealing passwords, installing cryptocurrency miners and delivering additional trojan malware.

Detailed by cybersecurity company Bitdefender, the malware – which targets Windows – has been dubbed MosaicLoader and has infected victims around the world as those behind it attempt to compromise as many systems as possible.

MosaicLoader can be used to download a variety of threats onto compromised machines, including Glupteba, a type of malware that creates a backdoor onto infected systems, which can then be used to steal sensitive information, including usernames and passwords, as well as financial information.

Unlike many forms of malware, which get distributed via phishing attacks or unpatched software vulnerabilities, MosaicLoader is delivered to victims via advertising."

Pegasus is a piece of malware - a virus - with the sole purpose to infect mobile devices. The eavesdropping made possible by Pegasus violates laws. Its trade must be banned - just like the trade with nuclear weapons is banned.

Just deleted a Firebase component from the day job app because it was causing memory corruption, in case you were wondering how it was going with the Google SDK dependencies.

Again: Google's SDKs and libraries are by quite some margin the absolute worst I've ever worked with on iOS. Just utter dogshit quality, with extremely little interest from Google to ever fix anything.

Just avoid Google dependencies when at all possible.

"We have a society which is structured so that social esteem or value is connected to what we can consume. And so the inability to consume affects the kind of social value that we have. Money displayed in terms of consumer goods just becomes a measure of worth, and that’s really important to people."

Why do we buy what we buy?

It gets worse with Muse Group, the people who acquired Audacity.

One of their people accused a Chinese guy of illegally using their API to access copyrighted works.

Pressuring him to take down the related repo the MG person described how the guy was critical of the Chinese government and could be in danger from them. Said he was describing the risks not threatening. But then threatened to get Chinese authorities to locate him physically.

Over copyrighted sheet music:

Pour rappel : la friendzone ça n'existe pas. Vous ne vous faites pas "friendzoner". C'est vous qui avez "girlfriendzoné" (ou "boyfriendzoné") quelqu'un.

Personne ne vous doit quoi que ce soit, que ce soit une relation ou du sexe.

On ne choisit pas par qui on est attiré. Et c'est juste être malhonnête que de devenir ami avec quelqu'un juste dans l'espoir de pouvoir sortir/coucher avec.

Chu jamais tanné d'me coucher tard!"

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.
