Though, I do like the term “genderfluid” for myself, it's less... agressive? than “genderqueer”.
I would use the term “queer” to partially describe myself, and there's lots of flavours of the term that I really like. 🙂
But I recognize that it hasn't been fully reclaimed, and that to many people that's the term that was used to insult against, and hate on, them. So to them, that's a term of hate. I recognize the validity, and respect, the fact that “queer” is not for them.
(BTW the people/groups requested swag, I'm not just randomly sending OpenStreetMap merch to random places)
I want #OpenStreetMap to be better with promotional material, and I've been on a sticker vibe lately. So today I sent a packet of stickers to Bangladesh, and later fly to Kosovo and hand deliver some more.
open source, exhaustion
I continue to move closer and closer to being done with open source, as a movement, entirely.
I am not seeing umbrella organisations that actually "do public good," and have lost faith in the ones I worked with previously. (HINT HINT)
I am seeing more burnt-out developers than I should who are dropping out of tech, incapable of supporting their families that way without murdering their consciences via substance abuse, prescription or otherwise.
Doctor: what seems to be the issue?
Me: my clitoris is swollen and my vagina is inside out
Dr: that’s a penis and testicles
Me: yeah that’s the problem
Remove the annoying “a/” & “b/” prefixes from #git diff with this command:
git config --global diff.noprefix true
For work, I'm mostly a sysadmin, so I'm always SSHing into other machines and doing things. vim is installed everywhere, so that's handy
At this weekend #OpenStreetMap hack weekend in @geofabrik
I worked on a new idea for “delayed” OSM replication, where changes aren't sent on immediately. This could allow proper community based anti-vandalism.
