other people: I write things in a planner as I learn about them, and then on a day-to-day basis I compile the most urgent and relevant into to-do lists, and then I proceed through the tasks on my list until they are all done

me, awed and humbled: truly, even your grimoire and the humblest of your paper talismans are steeped in your power! why, through all my studies in perturbing my subtle body, I have only succeeded in setting and following through on one 'to-do' ritual at a time

Now I'm against proprietary software but just play the Sims game instead of going to this metaverse piece of crap.

Helping a friend look for work, boosts appreciated 

Does anyone out there know of somewhere that might be looking to hire an incredibly talented and hard-working self-taught developer for a junior role? I’ve got a good friend I can vouch for 100% who has major chops but not much of a resume yet.

His background is Rails & React web apps but he could probably learn anything. He is willing to relocate.

myth: capital will respond to demand by making more things that people want

reality: marketing under capitalism has taken the most advanced technology the earth has ever seen and dedicated all of it to specifically finding things that hurt, upset and enrage human beings and amplifying them in a darwinian evolutionary process in order to maximize our own boundless unending torment

how come the retort is always "if you don't want companies using your code, don't release it as free" and never "if you don't want your code to break, don't pull code from an internet rando"

@Gargron @fcr yeah, I am not siding with the developer. His actions were shitty.

I am underlining the fact that:
1. Microsoft GitHub will block your account if it doesn't like the changes you make to your own code;
2. AGPL is a way better choice of license if one doesn't want to support Big Tech.

@fcr The most telling part is that GitHub suspended him.

No FLOSS developer should be on Github after this.

FLOSS developer intentionally corrupts his libraries and has multiple depending applications print out garbage, stating that "I am no longer going to support Fortune 500s [...] with my free work."

And that's not even counting the the absolute nightmare of filtering the horde of charlatans in this space.

Just thousands and thousands of influencers peddling basic 101 shit and selling 1000% markup snake oil to desperate kids.

Looks like a documentary I was a part of six/seven years ago—Information: what are they looking at?—was shown at this year’s CCC. It’s good to see, knowing how much work Theresia put into making it happen with next to no funding.

Warning: YouTube link.
