കഴിഞ്ഞ കുറച്ച് മാസങ്ങളായി ഞാൻ പണിതോണ്ടിരിക്കുന്ന ഇൻപുട്ട് മെത്തേഡ് ഒരു stable, production-ready സ്റ്റേറ്റ് എത്തിയതായി എനിക്ക് തോന്നിയിരിക്കുന്നു.

Capitalism is natural in a society where nobody wants to take ownership.

@sonnie sharing his #Outreachy experience with work with #debian

My internships with the Debian js-team has been so eventful and gracefully intense that hardly did I realize 13 weeks are already gone :) . This, of course does not in any way breach the intensity of my involvement with Debian, but rather means I could now take up more general packaging tasks than just those specific to my Internship projects.

Summer Fun -
I am sure we all have done this at some point.

Is there a safe space for people to engage in consensual sex or other romantic things in any city in India?

None of this is to say it's Bad and Reactionary to celebrate badass women, many of whom really did have to push back against sexism to achieve the things they did. I just think it's useful to examine those categories ingrained in us, like who do we count as badass and who we relegate to the boring.

What I have a problem with is equating individual achievements with the end of systemic violence. It very much has the feel of moralizing one's feelings, like "it must be feminist because I like it," without examining those feelings in any critical way. Just please. 🤦‍♀️ Have some self-awareness.

@le_ArthurDent
Social networks are a misnomer. They actually are content firehoses. People addicted to infoporn/gossip need more of that.

Did you know you can skip the initialValue in Array.prototype.reduce?

const sum = list.reduce((a, b) => a+b)

If you have an excuse, feel free to make an excuse. But please bear in mind that it *is* an excuse. Don't change the expectations such that you don't have to find excuses. Do feel conscience prick when all you do is find excuses.

How we assign blame:

You: No, it is not in our hands, the administration is to blame.
Admins: Oh, the director is not sympathetic.
Director: Ah, we haven't received funds from state government.
State: But central government.
Centre: But USA and Europe.

Everything is USA's fault

Thanks to everyone present, virtual Debian Bullseye release party, India was a blast. Hoping to seeing you all around and to more of Debian events. Good day o/

Is merit privilege? I think it is better to separate it from privilege and connect it to entitlement, as I argue in this post.
