Tabletop game idea: instead of rolling dice, you post two selfies, one for success and one for failure. The outcome is whichever gets the most favs. If it gets retoots, it's a crit. Each skill is a different set of clothes you wear in the selfies.
"open-source does not mean grassroots or community-driven" hell yeah the recompiler https://recompilermag.com/2018/02/23/episode-50-we-already-have-many-solutions-for-that/
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/
Today I realized that I cannot expect people on the Internet to have heard of the Geek Social Fallacies any more.
The Geek Social Fallacies are five things that geeks often believe about How Socializing Should Work, that cause a lot of conflict. I've found them to be pretty useful as a way to put a handle on certain concepts, and maybe even avoid going into bad situations.
(Looking at them in 2017, I find myself wondering how many of the GSFs the design of most social networks is running straight into...)
Hey, does anyone have suggestions for ways of recovering some sense of personal style/dress after a long time toning it way down to fit in? I really want to branch out from jeans + t-shirt + hoodie but I've been doing the tech-drag-just-fit-in (and the I-travel-too-much-low-maintenance-reusable-everything) thing for so long I don't even know where to start. #fashion #clothes #halphowdoieven
my favorite part about linux is how it has twelve clipboards
I've been mulling writing a blog post comparing Google's amp4email proposal with Google Wave (as a follow-up to my critique last week, https://jamey.thesharps.us/2018/02/16/how-not-to-replace-email/) which is fairly straightforward. But I want to propose that people should be using RSS/Atom to solve the problems that amp4email set out to tackle, and my fear is I don't know enough about how people who aren't me actually use email and maybe the Hacker News types are going to yell at me, or worse, blindly agree with me.
