My org is looking for an asciidoc or markdown toolchain consultant. We need templates and tooling that end up with PDF docs. It all needs to be FOSS, usable by people on Linux/Mac/Windows, and backed by git or svn. We're command line, emacs, vim types, but interested in guis too.

For reference, we have a Latex -> PDF repo: github.com/OpenTechStrategies/

If you're interested, hop into chat.opentechstrategies.com and say hi!

All leads appreciated. Feel free to circulate this notice. Thanks!

Watching a crow eat a chip. Stands on the chip to hold it down and control size of bite more easily. Good work, crow.

(Yeah well, in terms of working browser enginges, it wasn't that much better than today, but at least a couple of people tried...)

Good morning. It is April Second; time to upgrade your Internet Trust Level from "assume anything at all sensational is an April Fools joke" to "assume everything is misinformation paid for by someone with several orders of magnitude more money than you".

@cwebber @mk @codeforchaos Point is: age, gender, and number of children do not necessarily determine ability to use a computer.

Look at how many millennials and zoomers are "computer illiterate", where even mobile platforms are intimidating if they get outside their comfort zones.

(The announcement was unplanned and I expected to have more time for things I wanted to say and do first, but no, I don't think it was the right decision by the FSF, whose mission is needed but which keeps falling short of fulfilling it.)

For whatever it's worth, I did not support the decision to reinstate RMS. I made my arguments and placed my opposing vote; while I was glad I was able to do that I regret not being able to turn the decision the other way.

How do check if a phone is good or not:

- Try to open the back of your phone
- If you can remove the battery, this is an excellent phone
- If not, it's bad

i.e., there is a glut of candidates from zillion-dollar Silicon Valley orgs & corps on "Individual" ballot, which skews the alleged Individual seats right into the "Affiliate" seats.

Even if the candidate is not being paid by their employer to sit on the OSI board, Corporate Conglomerates, database vendors, and cloud-computing SaaS businesses are already overrepresented in the Affiliate seats. Employer-name recognition automatically skews in favor of those candidates on the Individual ballot.

super impressed with the social MUD for Roguelike Celebration.

I'm in a room right now that has a video feed, a whiteboard to ask speakers questions, and a bunch of mud users with random items and stuff

people shouldn’t be allowed to work more than ~20hrs per week

people need time and space for themselves, but when they force themselves into a shared workspace for excessive periods day-in day-out and deny themselves personal liberties, that need doesn’t just go away

when people don’t give themselves an outlet, they end up transforming their shared workspace into a place that serves their own personal needs at the cost of those around them. this transformation is the antithesis of inclusivity
