I really enjoyed the @fsf talks in-between changing diapers! Looking forward to the talks to be uploaded since I missed the morning sessions on both days, and sometimes I want to watch more than one concurrent talks.


@danslerush I <3 Poetry! I'm used to Python packaging being bloodletting, trapanation, and long hours fighting with setup.py - 'poetry init' and all is good :)

LSC, benefits 

When #bigtech #FTE workers drink the #koolaid because they get half the #benefits everyone in the EU automatically get, and loyally defend their employers in the their effort to further damage the social fabric 🤦🏻

PSA: road safety 

First emergency braking with 🐥 on board, to avoid being sideswiped by a motorist who reacted to the turning lane filling up fast without checking their blind spots at all (or indicate in time). How I miss Germany where driver license tests are harder and, more importantly, there's less need to drive!

Baby is fine, the car is fine, the motorist hopefully learned their lesson. As for myself I'll definitely be more defensive when there's more than one lane

Take a minute of your time and go read Michael E. Mann interview of the Guardian today. Well worth your time:

Money quotes: "Any time you are told a problem is your fault because you are not behaving responsibly, there is a good chance that you are being deflected from systemic solutions and policies. [...] Doom-mongering has overtaken denial as a threat and as a tactic. [...] if people believe there is nothing you can do, they are led down a path of disengagement."

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it."

Whether it be pollution of the Great Lakes or the pollution of fence line communities today, the rule is the same. Businesses don't decide to take policies to limit harmful externalities unless they believe that it will be better for them in the long run.

This post is day 14 of my challenge




My latest novel is Attack Surface, a sequel to my bestselling Little Brother books. @washingtonpost called it "a political cyberthriller, vigorous, bold and savvy about the limits of revolution and resistance."

Normally I would travel to Brussels for #fosdem right now. 😢

Not sure how much I will be able to participate at the online event but I hope we all can meet again in Brussels next year!
