dreams are where we can explore our deepest desires, right?

last night I dreamed that I actually recognized when someone was flirting with me

and also dreamed that I'd accomplished part of my goals, felt good about that, felt anticipation for working on more, and received recognition for what I'd already done

Since we didn't get very many women, enbies, or people of color to submit talks, the folks choosing talks for the Decentralisation & Internet Privacy track at FOSSDEM 19 decided that we'd like to ask of you:

If you submitted a talk, go ask an underrepresented minority friend/acquaintance of yours if they'd like to give the talk with you/in your stead.

CC @fosdem, can we get a little boost πŸ’œ?

@jamey @fosdem

I don't know the answer about paying for speakers, but I'd be interested in fundraising and personally contributing to get people to Brussels / a place to stay if it's an issue for folks.

Signs you're more of a computer scientist than an artist #38:

We need to draw a few flower-sprites for a game. Let's start by (re-)implementing matrix multiplication, so we can use linear algebra to generate semi-random flower-shapes. That sure sounds like a good and effective plan!

Two tweets by Merriam-Webster.

First tweet:
Quoting a tweet "@MerriamWebster better get ready to add the 12,000 other sexualities to the list too then" and replying "We were born ready.

Second tweet (verbatim):
People keep
1) saying they don't know what 'genderqueer' means


2) asking why we added it to the dictionary

"--chiseled abs for miles."

"Wait I wasn't listening, are you talking about someone with an eight-pack, a staggeringly long row of models or a street paved with abdomens?"

"None of the above I was trying to get your attention and, ew, who'd make a road out of people?!"

"I can pull up some historical files."

"Ew, no, it's fine."

"But knowledge is the key to success."

"And I go now."

"Success," I whispered to myself, having won back my solitude.
