@ArtistMarciaX I’m not sure if you know but you can get all the disruptions in the metro and the bus by email if you register at tmb.cat/en/jotmbe I find it quite useful

Welcome to 2019, traveler from 2009. The brief:
-sysadmins are now "ops"
-servers are all just "cloud" something
-algorithms are "AI"
-DBs are "blockchains"
-Everything that spies on people is "smart"

Good luck. And update your CV with the above words.

Capitalism is doing to the internet, the same thing it is doing to the environment.

(jolts awake) sex and sexuality are not inherently shameful or inappropriate and to imply as such on any structural level will disproportionately hurt lgbt adults and youth who already live with deep-seated anxieties about whether their sexual experiences are condemnable

My first attempt at doing this from scratch, I’ve made a little gingerbread shack. (Photo by @aral, including a sneaky Osky begging in the background.)

So, I guess the cat's out of the bag: I'm going to work on the #gnome platform libraries, thanks to the Foundation

#Google Home devices have a few open doors ;)

“I was surprised to see so many ports open so I started to do some research and found that these devices have an undocumented (and amazingly unsecured) API”

One who pays some attention to history will not be surprised if those who cry most loudly that we must smash and destroy are later found among the administrators of some new system of repression.

Restore yourself.

Be reborn in a new image.

Rest your mind by being willful.

If you decide to follow me because I like OpenBSD or write tips about vi, be warned:

I believe:
-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
-Meritocracies aren't

If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.

A new Linux smartphone is coming!

With an affordable price, too. Pine64 is behind this device running KDE Plasma.

KDE Neon creator Jonathan Riddell revealed this at Open Source Summit and it will be called PinePhone.

You can expect this open source Linux smartphone to cost $100+ for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.

I've been in verbal and physical fights with bigot and racists on multiple occasions. I know it when I see it. I am an expert in recognizing hate. PHD level.

A lot of white people's idea of civility and objectivity is based around assuming people have good intentions.

And as a dude that has had to dodge bats before, this is fucking false.

There are bad people on the fediverse. There are people that only want to cause harm.

And I will deal with them as I see fit. Fuck you if that offends you.

One of the very first things humans learn when they are born is to alert someone when they aren't okay. Then a bunch of people tell you not to and give you whole layers of shame about what you can need, when you can need it, and how you are allowed to ask, and who is allowed to ask, etc., etc.

Fuck all that. We literally exist to help each other or else we wouldn't keep hanging out with each other and figuring out new ways to connect.

Ask for help when you need it because it's fucking normal.

Not honoring Do Not Track (DNT) is a #GDPR violation. If you receive a DNT signal, you must turn off all tracking. Furthermore, as the person has made their choice explicit and clear, you must not ask them again (via popovers, modals, etc.)

How do we get this enforced. The first part seems like it is already covered by GDPR. Would the second half we enforceable under the current framework?
