@emacsomancer @emacsen there will, almost certainly be other propertary apps that I will want to use. Like fastmail, irccloud, discord,

Dear , what are good apps/programmes/sites to measure the of text? I'd like to to try to improve my , to make it more (). Does anyone use any tools for that?
Seeing a number, and making it go down, works well for how my brain works.

@emacsen I was the free software, but TBH I still want to install Facebook & Twitter on my phone... ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€œThe beauty of the #OpenStreetMap project is its ability to incorporate different viewpoints,โ€

Oh yes! We are all able to edit the same one #OSM commonly owned database, and different interest groups can do different things, and that's great. ๐Ÿ™‚ #xp

โ€œMaps can never be a perfect representation of the world โ€” they are instead a representation of how the map-makers perceive the world,โ€

Another good thing to remember when doing #OpenStreetMap #xp

โ€œThese companies donโ€™t map for the same reasons we do, and because of that, I question deeply if our goals can align.โ€

Oh yes @woodpeck is right here #xp

โ€œInside the โ€˜Wikipedia of Maps,โ€™ Tensions Grow Over Corporate Influenceโ€

Interesting article about #OpenStreetMap. While obviously it simplifies some things, it's not too bad. #OSM #xp

TERFs can now be called FARTs (Feminism Appropriating Radical Transphobes) just sayin' ๐Ÿคญ

Don't forget, only a few days left to have your opinion counted in the 2021 #OSMF Community Survey! Please take a few mins to fill in this anonymous survey to help the #OpenStreetMap Foundation Board (which I'm on) know more about the community. ๐Ÿ™‚ (boosts welcome)

โ€œFull offence but if your son lays awake at night wishing he was dead because you insist he's your daughter, or if your daughter lays awake at night wishing she was dead because you insist she's your son you have failed as a parent.โ€

@alpine_thistle I totally support including a free form box in such a query ๐Ÿ™‚

But when a group wants to discuss the results, do you tink it would make sense to talk about โ€œmaleโ€/โ€œnon-maleโ€?

@alpine_thistle well yeah, of course there should be other questions about those axes too.

But this is *just* for "gender" question...

@pocketwitch @wolfie I saw a tech conference, where the application to give a talk had a few checkboxes, like โ€œI have never given a talk at this con beforeโ€ and โ€œI am non-maleโ€ (or not male/etc). What do you think of that?

@pocketwitch @wolfie fair point & criticism taken.

If there was a survey with this as a binary option, do you think that would be OK, or?
