"Remembering the Battle of Holbeck Moor" By Tom Winterbourn
"On this day in 1936, Blackshirts led by Oswald Mosley organised a rally in Leeds to intimidate the city's Jewish population – and were driven back by 30,000 anti-fascists to the tune of The Red Flag."

So here's my #introduction! I live in #Roma, #Italy and I work in the telecommunications industry - studied #electronics and #computerscience so no big surprise! I love programming in #perl and I enjoy sharing via #cpan and #github. I used #emacs for some time but I'm all #vim now... 😅. I try to #blog daily at https://github.polettix.it/ETOOBUSY/ I loved finding about #Mastodon, really thought it was missing. I also like the conditions here in #octodon!

Back on the job/gig hunt again. If anyone had need for a purple team dude specializing in WiFi hacking, and endpoint/threathunting... I’m all ears!
Also, I am equipped and prepared to do contract work through my company if that is what you need too. Please boost the signal and help me put kids through college. :)
Gen-Xer born in #Mexico; since kid I was a #computer #nerd and liked #anime and #scifi, so it was logical I'd eventually discover the #cyberpunk genre (#ghostintheshell, #akira, #neuromancer, #bubblegumcrisis, #parasitedolls, #lain...)
(Also I've been recently exploring my sexuality and it turns out I'm trans ; specifically, nonbinary and probably genderfluid ; it's... complicated.
Perhaps another way to explain this is that I have a "femsona" and I feel more comfortable wearing her than my male-self when talking to my close friends.
BTW, I don't know if I'll get to be comfortable with using "she/her", so it's "they/them" for now.)
"A theory of functionality is presently being developed, where traditional ideas of data structures are being reformulated in such a way that a structure is now seen as a functional operator missing some if its arguments. For instance, an integer is akin to a for-loop missing its body, a boolean is akin to a conditional missing its pair of branches, etc."

Marx on the Tories
Marx said in 1852:
"The Tories in England long imagined that they were enthusiastic about monarchy, the church, and the beauties of the old English Constitution, until the day of danger wrung from them the confession that they are enthusiastic only about ground rent."
Hello fediverse, I'm looking for a job! (milano or remote or consulting)
I am a creative technologist with a wide variety of experience:
- full-stack (node, react, sql, nosql, …)
- hardware design, embedded (C/C++)
- gamedev (Unity/C#)
- graphics (shaders/GLSL)
- linux + FOSS
- other programming languages: python, lua, clojure
I especially like working on creative applications, across traditional technology boundaries and growing my skillset.
RTs very appreciated!
