MeansTV has just been killing it lately.

If you haven't heard of them, they're a worker co-op trying to start a leftist media platform. I believe it was started by the team behind some of Bernie's 2016 campaign marketing as well as AOC's campaign.

Great team of people doing some great work!

@alcinnz Wow, I can't believe I a) hadn't thought of that and b) hadn't seen anyone else mention it until now.

Thanks for the idea!

Anybody know a FOSS, non-evil alternative to Google's captcha service?

Ideally one that also doesn't force users into a brief life of indentured AI servitude to produce free labor for some third party...

@nev You should watch it! It's a great movie, albeit emotionally draining.

But, I feel you on the old age, unfortunately :(

Watching Jonah Hill's "mid90s"; there is something so satisfying about seeing the mythos of your childhood so eloquently captured on screen.

It's probably just a glimpse of my slow descent into old age, boomer-style, though ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Still, I look forward to whatever else Jonah Hill has to offer.


Haha, yeah I agree that video tutorials aren't necessarily the best way to go about it.

It's more that our boss is itching to throw some money down to get him trained, so we're looking for paid regiments (similar to Linux Academy) to take advantage of.

It's a shame Linux Academy doesn't caption all of their trainings, because it looks like a pretty solid resource otherwise.

@deejoe @kurtm

No worries, but thank you! And I'll do my best to remember to hit you back with anything I find :)

Anybody have any recommendations for accessible (specifically fully-captioned) training resources for becoming a linux sysadmin?

A coworker who is deaf is interested in learning more, and we're having trouble finding professional, comprehensive resources for him.

Haven't been on here in a minute, has the revolution begun?

If you're in America, please go vote today.

Shut down the fascist GOP.

Switching from twitter, so here's a(n) #introduction

Hi! I'm a high school student from Chicago. Right now I spend most of my free time developing tools to give more kids from around the city an opportunity to learn to code. I'm super into good design and improving human interactions, so most of my projects are web-based.

Other things I enjoy: philosophy, electronic music, functional programming, biking.

@jaranta Will do! I push for alternatives every chance I get, but it's difficult to do in many cases due to the University's dependence kind of pushing everyone else to depend on the same stacks, less they risk becoming incompatible or unsupported.

Slow and steady, though, I suppose.

@tsu Thank you! This is very helpful, albeit quite daunting.

I guess it's the same as most other things: just have to do the work and be patient.

@olivebranch I need to look into this. We have a fledgling (and largely powerless) campus workers union that's trying to get started, but here in the deep south of the US there's little room for workers protecting themselves.

@kdsch I work in web dev for a college at my University, with most decisions being made by people one or two steps removed from the actual labor.

Our setup is like this:
Windows servers running MSSQL, and using Adobe Experience Manager as our main CMS, and using Adobe ColdFusion as our main programming language for our web applications.

Above that, is the University which is also heavily reliant on the Microsoft/Windows ecosystem, which somewhat forces all sub-departments to do the same.
