Photos from one of the many Climate Strike protests in Chicago today, this one in front of an Amazon office downtown.

First two are shots of the crowd from different angles, third are the cops who were watching the protest from what would have been a much better position to get a good photo.

Doing my social duty by standing on the front lawn in my bathrobe with a cup of coffee yelling at schoolkids passing by to make sure they cut classes later today.

Going though my Computer History Museum photos and I found the original copy of this 1971 Telnet system diagram from RFC 158. Now you can compare the charming pencil on lined notebook paper to the official scanned version that's been the only one available for decades.

I love this stuff, it reminds me that the internet was invented by humans jotting things down on whatever paper was at hand and not godlike programmers planning everything exquisitely.

my incompetency is making things difficult

do you or someone you know have experience / expertise in any of the following: Linux 3.10 + 4.9 kernels on MIPS64, cross compiling linux kernel and userland, Cavium Octeon SDK?

I have needs!

...and (US/western Europe market rates) money! to give this person or persons, so that they may continue to survive in this oppressive capitalist system.

boosts appreciated. please DM me here. I don't care where you are situated in the world, personally.

Would anyone be interested in a sewing blog focused on sewing for trans women?

Stuff like copying patterns from clothing that already fits you well so that you can feminize them. Clothing modification. Making your own femme underwear that'll fit your hips and genital configuration. That sort of thing.

I'm not an amazing seamstress, but I'm finding sewing to be a very affirming way of approaching the process of replacing my clothes.

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.


Grateful for many brave people in the free software community and excited for the future ahead of us.

This just turned into a real good week to easily figure out who you don't want working on your open source project.

if you’re a bad person who made something good your punishment is to be forgotten and replaced with miku

I'm running a day long workshop at Radical Networks in NYC Oct 18 -- it's about how to run a small social network site for a small community. We're going to be making a (probably temporary) fediverse server for the "community" of our classroom and navigating all the social issues that arise when people with only surface things in common (like "we got tickets for this workshop") try to make an online space for themselves.

do you understand? it was never technology that made humane relations possible. it was you and i, and our commitment to each other.
