I think that one of the most harmful myths around computers is the one saying that you have to be smart to program one. It scares a lot of great people, and attracts a lot of people who are not so great, and only come for the bragging rights.
Using (including programming) computers does not require above-average intelligence. Most programmers I've met are in fact incredibly stupid most of the time. And it's fine, it all works somehow.

Richard Stallman, paedophilia apologia. 

My first work was doing enterprise systems for polish Orange (or Idea maybe even). I left them screaming due to, well architecture.

Now as a client i see nothing was fixed.

The RMS resignation was inevitable and right, but at the same time very sad.

Things can be right and sad at the same time. We can feel empathy while knowing this was necessary.

For people celebrating, we understand why. For those feeling sad about it, it's okay to feel sad too, but we all knew it had to happen.

Looks like Stallman's thinking is as awful as his hygiene.

#AmReading The Lesson, by Cadwell Turnbull. Science fiction about colonialism in the Virgin Islands.

Slipped it in before the #SFFBookClub selection so I can read before going to his tour stop in Chapel Hill next week.

I'm having a birthday! 🎁

To celebrate, my first three books are Pay What You Want through the weekend. (That includes $0.00!)

If you like your #ScienceFiction mixed with lighthearted office drama, and some properly alien extraterrestrials, The Embassy series has you covered.

Woke up very early today and drew popyfriendbr over on Twitter's "draw this in your style" cactus girl. She was fun, I'm pleased with how she came out!
