I want to practice Spanish. What are good podcasts?

What should I follow for technology related news and events in Dublin?

Fresh pot of coffee, Bach, Vim full screen.

I'm contemplating spending a bit more time than I have in the last few years macro-blogging. I want to migrate off blogspot. I figure I'll be self-hosting and would like the following features:

* Markdown that produces modern, WCAG-compliant HTML5
* Mobile-first theming with modern CSS and absolute minimal JavaScript
* Zotero-ready
* Push to Wayback Machine on publish/update
* Python api


Also, if something is CC-BY on Flickr, I'm assuming that I have attributed it if I include a link. I hope that's right.

I'm finding it surprisingly difficult to put a CC-BY image on my slides/handouts. When I include PNGs as images through Pandoc they are big and fuzzy, especially on Beamer slides. Neither the EPS or SVG works when making PDFs with Pandoc. (Except that it did work with one slide deck for a reason that I haven't discovered.)

I'm assuming that if I have the text and no image the legal status is the same, so maybe this isn't worth thinking too hard about.

Anybody know of a pod with aims/goals/ethics similar to ? Looking to ditch entirely and wanna find a good pod to call home.

I don't know much about the theory/history of cooperativism. What should I read?

I'm very interested in the idea of collectively owning social media (among other things).

I'm a philosopher. My professional interests are philosophy of language and metaphysics.

I use FLOSS when I can.

I'm in Dublin, Ireland. 🇮🇪
