When working on @karrot something I miss a lot is nice "community" icons with a DIY/homemade kind of feel, with images related to various kinds of community organising...

FontAwesome et al. just doesn't cut it really... the vibe I'm thinking is this kind of thing foodsharing-staedte.org/de/ide

I wonder if a few similar/related/sympathetic projects would be interested to create an open source "community icon" library?

"If you are poor, it’s time to ask yourself the pertinent question: had you thought of simply being rich instead? The pound responded to the measures announced with a perfect swallow dive to which even the Russian judge is likely to award the full 10 points, while the cost of government borrowing is rising sharply.... As part of their streamlining drive, it’s possible that Kwarteng and Truss have – quite brilliantly, of course – eliminated the boom from boom-and-bust."

"Among Conservative MPs, Truss is about as popular as anthrax, or a midweek visit from their wives. The PM keeps explaining she’s going to do everything differently, and her economic policy possibly makes best sense as a defence policy. She is casting the UK as a country too mad to nuke. It’s not classical game theory, is it? But maybe we’re just playing Buckaroo."

When you come across some new headline or initiative or statistic about open source, it's worth checking: do they only mean "on GitHub"? Kind of like when I see a headline about "everybody" and they mean "in the US".

"There's no greater absurdity than taking everything seriously. Similarly, it's stupid to take things to heart that don't concern you, and not too take to heart those that are important."

(Baltasar Gracián)

"Do not be distressed, do not despond or give up in despair, if now and again practice falls short of precept. Return to the attack after each failure, and be thankful if on the whole you can acquit yourself in the majority of cases as a man should."

Pro tip: when met with an early-20s "crypto king" promising to make you 10-20% biweekly gains, consider that he may not be a boy genius but may instead just be really, really dumb.
