I come back to this piece I wrote on @opensourceway about criticism in open projects quite often: https://opensource.com/open-organization/17/8/what-to-do-when-nobody-participates
"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."
— J. P. Barlow, "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace"
When people brag about their number of followers in their bios, I vomit in my mouth a bit.

Bunch of people are like "You probably can't find a dev because you dopn't pay enough." 2 things, #1: YOU is not ME, it's Greenpeace #2: I spent my career making decisions not based on money or power, but based on ideals and ethics. And I’m successful because of that, not in spite of it.
Who knows a good front end dev? How is it possible that we are having a hard time filling a #job for @greenpeace international 1st #FOSS project? Peeps - please share: https://workfor.greenpeace.org/vacancies/details/front-end-developer/
I do all my own slides, and it takes time, every time, even for repeat talks :/
Listening to a panel on technology and climate change. One lady, seven dudes. And without taking that sad fact into account, when has an 8 person panel ever been a good idea?
@Gargron so... mastodon bridge doesn't work for me (the same issue everyone else always had). Do you have a tip on how to MAKE it work? Dead end Github issues from 2017, no alternatives and a toot from you in January saying "I fixed it" have me reaching out to you directly :) https://social.coop/media/n3CdcDZxjVUVIt01Lgo
I went completely offline and had an actual vacation. The only thing that changed was my entire disposition. Everything else still (literally) on fire. Anyone want to go swimming later?
I won't be at #Open2018, now will any of our co-op.
Why? Although enjoyed meeting everyone last year, the panel session that marginalised, excluded, and patronised a female member of our co-op still hasn't been apologised for appropriately.
Said member offered to help improve inclusion and diversity this year, but there was no budget available, it seems.

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
