I discovered yesterday that Christopher Baldwin has been making more _Spacetrawler_ while I wasn't looking! There were multiple entire books I hadn't read!

So that's where the rest of that weekend went.

Hat tip to Comic Rocket, as it was looking over my list there when I realized there were hundreds of unread pages.

The two hardest problems I know of are going to bed and getting out of bed.

Me, reflecting on my media consumption: "But if I weren't reading all the toots and tweets, I wouldn't be aware of these movements in free software! And my connection to that community is important to me."

The people doing that work who are highly visible on social media: "auuuuuugh my mentions will be the death of me."

PyCon 2020 is in Pittsburgh, eh?

I don't know anything about Pittsburgh. But after reading about it for ten minutes, it seems like it's probably a fine place to be, and April is probably a fine time of year to be there.

The window with all those open tabs crashed, and the list of tabs was not recovered.

This is perhaps for the best, the de-cluttering that's been forced upon this desktop. But if your post was among those lost, I'm sorry.

I really did think it looked like the sort of thing I want to know more about, and I was going to read it one of these days. Any day now. Eventually. I hope. Maybe.

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

Is nyan cat involved somehow? Or is that an unrelated project?

(Does this instance not have a nyan emojo? CAT ZWJ BREAD ZWJ RAINBOW)

Okay, I need someone to Explain The Joke: Why is Hatsune Miku the new name behind GNU?

(You don't need to explain why the previous person in that role has to go, I'm caught up on that part.)

The bit I was missing from all the Firefox DNS-over-HTTPS and Firefox Private Network discourse is that Cloudflare had their IPO today.

Happy programmer's day & Friday 13th

Who wants to co-found a professional org for trans people in tech?

This is not a joke by the way, I want to do this.

In this "armed robber" meme format, is the robber saying something that happens to be the exact thing that provokes a response from you? Or are they *trying* to get you to give up your location?

The first seems improbable and I'm unclear why they would do the second.

I'm struggling with a community development phenomenon that's been going on for a while around me, particularly in tech-centered Slack groups.

Something about the affordances of Slack combined with the tendencies folks to like to organize things, but aren't thinking about social schemas ends up making it arranged topically.

There's a problem here: relationships span topics. There's clusters of interest broader than that, and even then, it puts relationships secondary to topic.

Oh, that hashtag was referring to North Bay Python, not enby python. 🐍 :nonbinary_flag:​
