If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed
But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees
telling my dad I fixed a thing on his laptop while I'm traveling and…
him: "I guess to you work/vacation are pretty much the same? 🙂"
me: "I've successfully avoiding doing much of anything that anyone would pay me for! …wait, is that a good thing? 🤔"
him: "Pretty much like your father, I suppose. 😀"
Whenever I talk about breaking DRM, I'm just joking. I'd never do anything like that, and I'd certainly never recommend that anyone download libdvdcss (which I've heard can be installed with apt-get using libdvd-pkg, or with dnf by enabling rpmfusion-free-release-tainted) to crack DVD DRM in a country where that kind of thing is illegal.
"a lot of money to change the google results for Github ICE" probably sums this up.
Still, I have thoughts.
link to peer reviewed, open access article on libraries, ICE, and information surveillance
I don't regularly post about the articles published with the journal I help edit, but today's article touches on so many things (privacy, information capitalism, supply chain ethics, privacy by design principles, vocational awe, etc.) that I can't help myself.

Librsvg 2.47.1 is out!
This is the first release that doesn't depend on libcroco.
Also, documentation on the library's internals is starting to appear at https://gnome.pages.gitlab.gnome.org/librsvg/doc/rsvg_internals/index.html as I fill it in.
Positive masculinity exists and is distinct from toxic masculinity (which men impose on each other through patriarchy)
Positive femininity exists and is distinct from toxic femininity (which is imposed upon women by patriarchy)
Positive behavioral traits exists regardless of gender and we should de-gender behaviors and stop coding things as masculine or feminine behaviors. Just have a big pool of positive traits and you can mix and match freely.
