A colleague is planning to run a remote Latin language course on Saturdays to help us stave off the boredom of being stuck home. :)

I've signed up; brushing up my high school Latin sounds fun.

Remember, the GOP has blocked every infrastructure bill and policy for the last decade to spite Obama and his legacy.

Think about that the next time go to the market and see bare shelves in a country that has a multi trillion dollar economy.

Hey, is there, like (and I'm only half-shitposting here)...

Mastodon for B R A N D S ? ? ?

Seriously though, I wanna make an account for jepsen.io, which is kind of a weird "it's a consultancy, so it's kinda advertising, but also free software and in the public interest", and I don't really know what kind of instance that should belong to. Suggestions?

A promise to you all: If you want to start a blog and you're considering medium: don't. I will personally help you set up anything else.

Hey #Seattle I know one of the people who lives in this house and she is super cool so if you are looking for somewhere to live, take a look here!


Hey, does anyone know of an indigenous or otherwise endangered language a keyboard layout has been designed for, but isn’t available on Linux? I would like to learn how to make keyboard layouts, so I’ll do it free of charge.

Boosts welcome!

Thinking about... bullshit.

Bullshit is a lie that is expected to go unchallenged, whether or not it is believed. Bullshit can be placed on a spectrum.

At one end we have erudite bullshit, where the speaker deters challenges by making the thing they're saying appear informed and plausible.

At the other is gutter bullshit, where the speaker relies on a deterrent that's not based on the content of the lie.

Academic hoaxes are erudite bullshit. The proverbial emperor's new clothes is gutter bullshit.

Mozilla just laid off 70 fantastic people. If you can help them - open positions, offering helpful conversations and references, anything else - please say so.

Use #MozillaLifeboat as an umbrella tag for easy finding. (It's already flowing on the birdsite.)

If you've been affected, I'm happy to chat directly. Also have some open positions (see rest of this thread). But doesn't have to be today - take time to recover if you can.

Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.
