i finally understood the marxist theory of the alienation of labor when i realized it's just that sensation of your work having no relationship to your community's welfare, your boss having no connection to you as a person with an independent will, and generally their seeming like a creature from another dimension because they're faced with slightly less dire scarcity than you. that's class war, babey!

Shaking my fist at power-only USB cables that aren't obviously labeled as such.

We've fostered this idea in the staffing community that you're more worthy if you are committing insane hours or are tired. Suffering isn't an indicator of value.

Take care of yourself, and in doing so, take care of each other.

It's time we stop fussing about source code.

It's time to start fussing about the incredible range of humans that have always made it possible.

rms, a defense of free software 

Art project installation day! Thank goodness for wxPython. Never would have written this calibration GUI software from scratch (and from a cold start!) in time without it.

subtoot: if you have a personal website on which you post any sort of creative work - essays, photos, art, code, designs, stories, whatever - for the love of ghu, put your preferred full name on it in an obvious place. i can't cite you properly if you don't tell me your name.

Did you know? I co-host a podcast for hobbyist game devs!

Check out my interview with Henry Keiser where we talk about VR:

Masto culture is saving as a draft and popping over to someone's profile to make sure they havent changed their pronouns since you last talked about them before you hit the toot button

Free software

It's not about simply burnout or sustainability. It's about fairly compensating people's work -- and not just the work of folks who send patches in.

Modern open source is corporate exploitation with a thin veneer of warm fuzzies sprinkled on top in hopes no one will notice.

A friend suggested today that it's time for a manifesto and I agree. Another friend in another conversation mentioned that "free software" and "open source" are not relevant terms for what we need. I also agree.

It's time for something new. A new, community-centered ecosystem.

I want to see a world where we no longer center software developers in our endeavors. Where "source code" is no longer our main concern. GitHub created a world where we take source code for granted. Let's keep doing that!

Now stop taking for granted the labor that requires.
