Sometimes propel refer to "pink washing" (eg around Isreal), or talk about "cis gay men" when it comes to LGBTQ venues/groups. Which is kinda what I'm talking about... But doesn't have the same punch as "white feminism"

"White Feminism" refers to race & gender (good at one, bad at the other). Are there terms for other similar combinations?

Do you know about #OSM Diaries? A YouTube #video channel from long time #OpenStreetMap contributor Gregory Marler, about what they're mapping now. It's a great way to see the nuts and bolts of OSM mapping

The main contradiction of liberal democracy is that it has largely been shaped through a history of various forms of illegal civil disobedience against entrenched power structures. Such civil disobedience is retrospectively seen as justified, and the people committing it are retrospectively seen as heroes. However, each successive generation is asked to believe that any further civil disobedience would be unreasonable.

Did you know there's lots of #OSM Telegram channels? This is a pretty big and active channel. Meet more of the #OpenStreetMap community!

#OpenStreetMap community recently looked at how #Crimea was mapped in #OSM and a working group decided that it should be included as part of Russia only, since they have physical control.

This seems to have really touched a nerve with some people...

Oh apparently networking on (18.04) servers is managed with now? That's another thing I have to learn and figure out.

Why yes wget, I would like you to print one line for every 50KB of this 70GB file I'm downloading. That'll really help my logs.

RT Nothing quite sums up the gentle fatalism of the psyche than replacing "Goodbye" with "Good luck"

Does anyone have any resources, research, or examples of how "professional", "civil" or "hostile" have been used against marginalised people? Is this a big thing?

When it comes to "women in tech" with /#inclusivity, I often see calls for civility or complaints about hostility.

So which is it? Does requiring civil/professional actions and banning hostility help or hinder diversity (in tech/FLOSS)?

Apparently mince pies are just mincemeat in a pie. And you can just buy mincemeat. So that's easy.

I'm going to try to make mince pies for Christmas. I haven't seen them in Germany, and it could be a nice treat to give people. Plus they're tasty.

I am trying to explain Irish addresses to Germans. A client wants some list of postcodes in Ireland.
He's not going to have a good time.
