This is a perfectly healthy statistic for a #ereader. right? right?
(New kindloe software update shows this, I have read more than 0 books on this kindle. 😉 (the ratio is still.... um.... OK?))
There's lots of discussion software out there. I wonder has anyone made one that can operate as a mailing list too? Where there's an email interface? (as well as a standard web/ActivityPub interface?)
I think that's the only way to move some #FLOSS communities off mailing lists, you'd have to ensure fans of mailing lists can still participate...
*But* the same people often use & promote #Twitter. Isn't there much much more horrible abuse on Twitter? Is that a contraditiction? Is there something that makes twitter less exclusionary for marginalized people?
When I look for travel tips for LGBTQIA+ travelers, the only info I get is: here's all the clubs that gay men like.
No, that's not what I want! I want to know what cafes queer women hang at, what spa would be trans friendly, what gallaries can I find work by queer people, what business may have queer owners or employees.
Anyway, where should a pan trans gal hit up in Madrid? Where would I most likely be able to make a friend?
I have also learned about `impl Into<Cow<_>>` to accept a `&T` and `T`. Which, in retrospect, should have been obvious to me, but I just didn't put 2 and 2 together.
It should make my #rust code more cleaner/ergonomic!
"Elegant Library APIs in #Rust"
Now this is an interesting guide!
(I learned about the `impl Into<Option<T>>` which looks very useful!)
Ah another time where I don't know how to make #graphs. I'm trying to make a histogram. I should really learn gnuplot (but it can look bleh). Is there a modern tool for that sort of thing? That pynotebook thing?
Vizualizations can be very powerful and impressive and area I haven't put the practice into. I should rectify that.
Ung. I love #Rust in many ways, but the String/&str thing often wrecks my head. Why is there &str *and* &String? Making functions they can take either type is annoying. (currently trying to wrap my head around Borrow vs AsRef).
They call ours Free Statyo which is inspired.
Reminder there is RFC7282 for how to run "consensus system"
so recently github announced their own package registry, and today they announced their own opencollective type of thing. i think at this point it's safe to say microsoft is using github to try to take over the open source software world. (it was safe to say this when they acquired github, it's just very obvious now.)
Weird to find myself saying good things about startup culture in several conversations lately. The theme was UX, and my point was that growth-obsessed companies have seriously upped the stakes in how much thought we put into interfaces. And that's a good thing—there was (and remains) way too much "RTFM" mentality in open source culture, and corporate software houses still don't really seem to get UX at all.

The funniest thing about the milkshake is that if the shitty right wingers had even the slightest idea how to deal with minor public embarrassment, it wouldn't be working
But as it is they react to having some milkshake on them like a man being pepper sprayed, like it's going to ruin their whole career to be seen like this
They literally have no idea how to walk or off and deal with the fact that some people really, really dislike them
(whereas as a trans person I'm super used to that)
