@federicomena the signals I see are the most obvious like Liberapay and the such
But also the idea of collecting structured data about software projetcs.
So that we could collect some information about who is using what in order to do what
We could match that with who is working on what payed by whom and how
Things like Guix and the fsf directory could help with this
Maybe some more initiatives that i don' t know exist
I've been bad at doing this lately.
Hi! I have a Patreon, which I'm using along side of my Twitch channel and Liberapay, to build up support for myself.
I'm unfortunately incapable of keeping with a normal job, due to #CFS, but I'm looking at alternatives. One is to provide content online, mainly Twitch streaming right now.
If you want to make a contribution to me I appreciate any support!
Think of all the stuff that still uses gtk2.
Gtk2 is not unmaintained, but it's in life support mode, thanks to people who actually get paid to do it.
Apps that haven't (been able to) switch to gtk3, they are maintained by people who *don't* get paid to do it.
Meanwhile, end users absolutely depend on those apps. We don't have that many "big" applications in free software, and we don't have an infrastructure for people to pay for them.
This is fucked up.

I was thinking about the Fibbonacci sequence this morning, like you do, and realized that (a) you can run it backwards (f(n+1) - f(n) = f(n - 1)) and (b) if you run it backwards past the start of the sequence, you wind up with the same sequence but with alternating signs: 8, 5, 3, 2, 1, 1, 0, 1, -1, 2, -3, 5, -8... I'm sure this isn't novel but I thought it was neat.
Thanks to @alatiera we will soon have a Rust parser for SVG's stroke-dasharray property, to replace the shitty and incomplete C parser we have 👊
