I have two more spots for our Purr Programming page in the next Recompiler issue! Exchange computer-themed cat photos for stickers: email email@example.com
Christie and I had a bunch to say about why we don’t want AMP in our email, and how hacker culture can protect and celebrate harmful people https://recompilermag.com/2018/02/23/episode-50-we-already-have-many-solutions-for-that/
I want to understand what topics were covered, communication practices used, and kinds of leadership and participation
If you can point me to someone who knows how Ubuntu LTS releases work and how to make sure your packages aren't broken in it I'd be grateful 😶
Are there any good writeups of the practices and activities of general assemblies during Occupy?
I did tshirts! With fluffy cat butts! (artwork by a lovely artist named Kaja) https://nekosocks.shop/collections/shirts-and-totes
I’ve been really proud of the conversations we’re having on the podcast. You’ll have to wait a few days for our discussion of Gmail and AMP, but the other week we talked about all kinds of tracking and surveillance. https://recompilermag.com/2018/02/08/episode-48-wouldnt-it-be-cool-if-we-knew/
I wrote about the 2010 rise and fall of Google Wave, and lessons we can learn from their attempt to roll up email and chat and wikis into a single federated tool: https://jamey.thesharps.us/2018/02/16/how-not-to-replace-email/
Brave/micropayments Show more
I'm looking at the payments process more -- if everyone using toot.cat were to sign up and put a small amount in their Brave wallet, for example, the mods would get an email saying they had cash to claim. Pretty easy micropayments! I found the setup process not too hard to follow (and I've never used a cryptocurrency before)
You know what I want out of Dat/IFPS/whatever? A shared calendar (say, family-wide, or workgroup-wide) that doesn't need a centralized server. And accessible on my phone, even when offline. Is something like that possible?

One interesting thing about running a sock shop is that the new year festival has started in China, and absolutely nothing will ship until it's over. Not a problem (ePacket is pretty fast for overseas delivery) but it gives me a reminder that "global" means all sorts of different business cultures and practices.
Wie sagt man “corrections welcome”?
Mostly noting that because I’ve never tried to study more than one language at a time and I think it’s interesting how it works
I guess at least reading the news in German slows things down a little for me. I’m back on top of my reviews for WaniKani too, and alternating them isn’t giving me a headache or anything.
