@Riverman while highly admirable, making things like this "law" scare me, it's always better to change the culture than force a law, there are many unforseen circumstances which arise from forcing laws for cultural issues on groups of people.

This law makes it illegal for a man to be a board member of a publicly traded company unless there are at least 2 board seats otherwise it must be a woman that holds the seat.

Signed into law on the 30th of September, 2018 by Governor Jerry Brown.

My dad came in the house from taking out the trash today screaming about some light in the sky and how he wanted me to come look. I just watched spacex's rocket from my dumpster with my ever loving dad and it was wonderful.

Anyone in the San Diego County area looking for a roomate?

Is learning how to code a fundamental skill like reading and writing?

Or is it more like plumbing in that it is incredibly valuable to society but most people don’t need to understand it?

Or is it more like law where it’s good for kids to have a basic understanding of our legal system but they don’t really need any in-depth knowledge?

Apple cider and milk do not go well together.

None of the appeals worked but I still have a line of communication with the Apple store gatekeeper.

Gatekeeper: “we have rejected your app because it only interacts with the UI and I got bored of it.”

Me: “My app should be able to interact with the content too!”

Gatekeeper: “This is true. We have come to this conclusion after a thorough investigation.”

Me: >:(

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It just means you're tired.

I should probably explain that hashtag, #foak. Back in the Usenet days (I know, I’m old), we used “FOAK” in subject lines to designate a fact-based question we were looking for an answer to. The idea was that Usenet contained so many knowledgeable people that we were collectively the Font Of All Knowledge.

I’d love it if that caught on as a hashtag here; I’d really enjoy following the tag and seeing if I could answer any of the questions.

Anyone know what is looking for to approve a app? I just got told that my app was for a lack of features. On inquiring more details I was told that it was my apps concept that triggered the rejection. I would like to but before I do that I need to scope out more details about what it is they care about.

It feels like social network protocols like will accomplish a lot of the things that were supposed to but it's harder to profit from federated networks.
