Here's a short story:
A certain member of my local hackerspace runs a web-service that returns racist content and nazi-symbolism.
Member gets evicted from the hackerspace and his membership cancelled by democratic vote.
Member sues the hackerspace for public defamation.
Hackerspace is running break-even and can barely afford attorneys and legal advice.
I really, really need to contain myself at this point, but someone truly deserves a can of whoop-ass.
#rustlang peeps, please give me your opinions on pure-rust PNG codecs. I'm writing https://gitlab.gnome.org/federico/gdk-pixbuf-survey/blob/master/src/png.md to see how far Rust crates are from replacing gdk-pixbuf loaders.
🎉 wl-clipboard 2.0 is out! 🎉
wl-clipboard is a project that lets you interact with your #Wayland clipboard from the command line, similarly to xclip/xsel on X11 and pbcopy/pbpaste on macOS.
2.0 is a big, long-awaited release! The guts of wl-clipboard have been completely rewritten to fix multiple issues and enable new functionality, all while keeping the same user- and scripting-friendly interface, and the same do-what-I-mean type matching logic.
Anti-fascist FOSS dude collective when?
I picture them donating hardware and providing tech support to marginalised folks with patience and care.
They would kick racists and abusers out of the free software community by force if necessary.
They would give some money from their exorbitant tech job salary to people in need whilst also unionising their workplace.
They would take on lots of liberatory organising to take some of the burden off already overburdened folks.
They would set up rad trans inclusive and poc friendly hackspaces in their local area.

I have what I think of as an ongoing Shenmue II save on my Dreamcast that dates back easily 15 years. Years will go by between starting it up and playing for an hour or so. According to the (clearly dubious) timestamps on my save files, the last time I played was seven years ago, and I played for a little more than a day of in-game time.
@wezm someone's take on twitter was that their talk being rejected meant that the accepted talks would be awesome, and I'm all for that 😄
