I've been seeing lots of discussion of what to do about proprietary software on endpoints at #SeaGL2019 — but very little discussion about what to do about proprietary data collection and how we can make that more open, more user-controllable.
At #SeaGL2019 and loving it; there's been talks on amazing Makefile hackery, how to use Krita, discussing IPv6 & Multicast... Basically, a good time.
@trashyfins consider: infinite bottom theory.
Theoretically if you have unlimited bottoms and unlimited time eventually one of the bottoms will by random chance keysmash the entire works of william shakespeare
HIV prevention PSA (tldr you can get PrEP for FREE)
if your reason for not being on PrEP (the pre-exposure prophylactic medicine that almost entirely prevents HIV from taking root in your body) is that it's too expensive, you should be aware that you are entitled to receive it 100% FREE OF COST to you via Gilead's "Advancing Access" program. Not only that, it's so easy to sign up I literally did it in line at the pharmacy when they told me I'd have to pay $3k for my script pickup.
There is no reason for you to pay ANY MONEY for PrEP.

I, ah, discovered that the ARRL's podcast, "The Doctor is In", is available through Plex. I guess I found a bunch of listening to do. #hamradio
Crowds and stuff
Wandered through IKEA, saw some stuff... and realized that the issues I have with the store have to do with the decision-making aspect; I can handle crowds and noise-I love going to fairs-but ask me to pick if I should buy a thing in that environment, and I get cranky. Add in lots of extra-bright lights, and there you go.
I have discovered a bunch of doom bands on Bandcamp who're putting out some really amazing releases. This self-titled album from Gorm, for instance: https://gorm.bandcamp.com/album/gorm
Reading the ActivityPub vocabulary spec, and it's a little odd that `Collection` inherits from `Object` when really it looks like the standards writers just want to be able to say that something is either one or many of a given thing.
For example, images: the `icon` property, is defined as having the type `Image|Link`, but also shows using a list of `Image` objects (so, a collection?). It seems like the semantics for collections aren't quite right.
