How did we let the Web get to this point. All I wanted to do was read this blog post.

I’m a generalist with 15 years professional experience and engineering/computer science degrees. Full-stack Ruby, ReasonML most recently with a fair bit of Rust on the side.

Looking for a role in Melbourne AU or remote friendly. Would love to work a bit lower down the stack, systems level, embedded, OS, networking for example. Want to work for a business that values quality and correctness, not just deadlines and piling on technical debt.

Pls boost for reach 🙏

wow, this is a new one

if you need my “personal data” to pay your staff then you need to find a more ethical fucking business model

Me, to a straight couple: so which one of you is the femme lesbian, and which is the *high* femme lesbian?

GitHub is proprietary software. Think of it! 🤔
"Today contributing to a FOSS project more often than not requires using GitHub" - "I talked to [...] technical students of my university [...] and they thought git is just the interface you use to talk to GitHub" - "git was created as a way of escaping the reliance of a proprietary software company running a centralized service" - "GitHub has created many of the problems git was created to solve" - youtube.com/watch?v=U_nK6nP_RC
