Rustfest workshop idea: how to unionise your workplace

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.

Today is the 33rd birthday of #aaronswartz, he fought to free #knowledge and killed by flawed unjust system that valued money over humanity. Let's remember him, and continue the battle he has started #knowledgefreedom #creativecommons

#rustlang peeps, please give me your opinions on pure-rust PNG codecs. I'm writing gitlab.gnome.org/federico/gdk- 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 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.

So, the first thing I’ve done on my @OpenBSDAms box is to bring up my Gopher service:

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 😄
