@alcinnz I recommend reading Phillip Knightley’s “The Second Oldest Profession”. Documenting a long history of intelligence agencies using their failure as an excuse for more power, just for the sake of more power. In the politics of fear, it’s a strategy that always wins

I like it, it's useful to track progress of your projects if kanban is your thing. You might want to have a look at WeKan, a FOSS alternative to Trello.

"So, do androids dream-"
"No," the android said, "we do not dream."
"But you do sleep."
"To conserve energy, we can enter 'sleep' mode. We hate it."

"Well, I am not religious."

That you're celebrating 90 years since your first motion picture debut means you're well past your public domain bedtime you fucking rat.

Fuck you, Mickey. Fuck you.

Internet culture as such a weird combination of "everything is flawlessly recorded forever" and "you just had to be there". Everything is simultaneously permanent and ephemeral. We're drowning in records that have no context, and context that has no records

The pupil approached the master, who sat in the air.
"I can't even imagine doing what you do, master."
"If you believe in yourself," the master said, "there is nothing you can't imagine yourself doing."
"And then I can do what I imagine?"
"No. But you can't do it without."

As these examples demonstrate, open source projects can come from just about anywhere. This is, generally, considered to be a good thing. It means that useful projects are more likely to succeed, avoiding both the vacuous hype associated with startups, and the bureaucracy associated with government.

@deshipu I'm currently reading (really sparse) documentation on how to implement data source plugin in Grafana, and your comment just hit the spot.

remember when the internet was fun and full of possibilities? yknow how now it's a miserable hell? reminder that what happened is that capitalism colonized it and now it's just as shitty as everything else capitalism's got its hooks in

like. seo, algorithms, targeted advertising: these are all DESIGNED to keep you from finding some weirdo's X-Files fan page or geocities star trek web ring. I would 1000x rather find those than tweets from the u.s. president, yet here we are #thankscapitalism
