What action have you taken today to make yourself or another less dependent on the kyriarchy; the system of oppression that we currently live with?

Gave a talk at . Used a previously unseen projector. Going to call that a win!

I am organizing a #Scheme coding competition where you have to build a static blog generator with a mystery feature (that will be revealed little by little in the next few months).

We have already one sponsor and are actively looking for other sponsors to reward the participants 🥇 🥈 🥉 (goodies, cloud credits, books...).

Checkout: git.sr.ht/~schemers/competitio

#webdev #dev #fp #programming

Boost appreciated!

I'm having great fun with #python, #numpy, and #pandas today. Finally have a data project where it's worth the time building some outputs based on predictable input because of reporting frequency.

Thanks to those responsible for building great, flexible tools.

And finally the Grand Prize Winner of the 2019 Audubon Photography Awards is this Red-winged Blackbird blowing frosty rings in the cold morning air. We can literally see birdsong in this photo and that is just magical. What a beautiful world we share with these creatures.

Good morning, everyone! I've put up another call for contributions for #entropic: discourse.entropic.dev/t/looki

This one is a particularly nice way for JS devs to get into Rust, since it involves porting an existing JS module! It also has the potential to be widely-used by Rust folks!

Ouch. Can't in full honesty deny it.

Any ideas on how to better calibrate your sense of "everyone and everything is shit" to the real world? Or maybe it's already an accurate view of the world?

Dear everyone who is considering making a video of yourself talking rather than just writing the *exact same words* into a text file, a blog post or a PDF:

Unless you're specifically targeting people who literally cannot read...

Please don't.

I'd like to read up on best practices for #accessibility on web stuff, both static pages and web applications. Are the Mozilla resources on ARIA the best there is?

HEY. @Tusky is excellent. As of me writing this post, their Open Collective balance stands at $1592.59.

If people can get $200 more dollars in the till (that's $1792.59) by the end of the day tomorrow (36 hours for me, give or take a few), I'll match it with $200 dollars of my own.

I also challenge other folks in tech with a little money to throw around to match my match, even partially.

"For unlike someone devoted to the life of contemplation, a total worker takes herself to be primordially an agent standing before the world, which is construed as an endless set of tasks extending into the indeterminate future."

A bunch of you (mostly those with white collar jobs) should read this and consider how close you are to the sort of ideology this article discusses. I think it'll feel uncomfortable, but may help motivate you toward new opinions.

I typed \u2728 in a Python training today, thinking it'd be a good unicode character and a ✨ came out. I'm glad I've typed the sparkle emoji code point enough to have memorized it. 😊
