Tomorrow I go on #climatestrike.

I will retain only one domain for email until I have finished transferring all my senseless duties to others or shut them down for good.

It will take me some time to explain, but I will take this time. Then I will expire.

ethics in software design is a subject that needs more attention. black mirror focuses on the extreme example, with only one of their episodes (nosedive) having a current real life parallel (china's social credit system). questions like "should software licensed impose ethical restrictions" are never talked about, and rarely do people consider the ethical implications of software features, from the small stuff like the usage of muted blue as a calming colour in social network UIs to features like "beauty mode" on phone cameras.

the really severe stuff is often talked about, like that time a company released two different trailers and used facebook's targeted advertising feature to show them exclusively to white or black people, but the small stuff often gets glossed over. the exception is DRM, which is constantly talked about and fought against.

Crimping day today and the first motor is now connected to our RAMPS.

I'd argue we've got to that point now and so instead of "person who knows a bit about tech" I am in fact a witch
