Marriage is bad for kids.
As an institution meant to protect the family, it fails. The alternative to marriage is not single parents. The alternative is a village. It takes a village to raise a child. Every parent considers that saying, and, overwhelmed, drowning in stress, and severely lacking time to spend with their kids, asks, "Where's the fucking village??"
How do we, as a society, take a step towards building villages?
@Carnet do you think liberapay does a good job helping devs get financial support?
@mhoye is Kevin Marks on mastodon?
@fool maybe you'd like to hear about Nonmon, my concept for using information as currency, instead of numbers of other things like coins. I believe debt is good, but quantification of debt enables destructive systems of control, such as your point.
@stux cats are the best at two things: cuddling and biting. problem is when they try multitasking.

@batata @wxcafe for existing projects, me neither. but I think Free Software needs fewer lines of code, which means platforms with composable core tools, adherence to the Unix philosophy "do one thing and do it well", and higher level programming languages that should be pushing the boundaries of the definition of programming
capitalism IS the quantification of value. if you have doubts about capitalism, you should be thinking how to avoid valuation of your deeds and possessions, and how to give and get without ever tracking numbers.
So long as a number can be put on something, it will be exchanged, taxed, and required as payment for debts.
We are invaluable. We are not our net worth.

@aral I stopped writing Clojure because I had that feeling so much more often
@jauntywunderkind420 @alcinnz @dublinux @sir webcomponents seems like a good step forward for JS, but a step backward for HTML. looking at a couple tutorials, it looks like the display of the custom HTML tag would be relegated to a procedural JS class. that's not a machine readable ontology. it may make HTML more concise, but at the cost of making its meaning more obscure, and enabling obfuscation.
