The Glass Room San Francisco is running from 16 October to 3 November daily, and is situated at 838 Market Street, San Francisco come over and say hi! theglassroom.org

@emacsomancer Sure thing. That’s why I avoid corporation‑driven projects when I can. Corporation needs come always first.

And now Microsoft et al is in The Linux Foundation sponsoring more and more projects aligned with their needs.

That’s why folks fixated on systemd miss the point.
The whole stack is more and more about Big Corp and hostile to ‘commons’.

We need to create what we want. Demanding stuff from them is waste of time.

@jamey @tomasino There's also https://radar.squat.net/en which is global and FOSS. Federation is/will be a game changer though.

Anyone on the path from your network to your DNS resolver (where domains are converted to IP addresses) can collect info on what sites you visit—potentially blocking content or spoofing your DNS to return an incorrect, even dangerous result.

A pro-tip: prepend a `*` at the beginning of a function's signature to make the function kwargs-only. (Python 3 only.)

>>> def f(*, x):
... return x
...
>>> f(x=42)
42
>>> f(42)
[...]
TypeError: f() takes 0 positional arguments but 1 was given

Sometimes I'll typo things phonetically. Like I'll write "place" instead of "plays". It's weird

An interesting article [0] about the spread of technology (eg Amazon's Echo and Google's Home), how that can endanger our , and what alternatives are available.

In terms of alternatives, for instance, Mycroft [1] is a free and open-source voice assistant for GNU/Linux.

8 and 144 are the only numbers (`fib(6)` and `fib(12)`, respectively) that are the product of other Fibonacci numbers. And 144 is the only Fibonacci square. (Except for trivial cases.)
