OK, so I'm looking for work, if you see something matching my profile - please pass it my way.

Got broad nerd qualifications, linux-first since 2003, high interest in privacy/security, some sysadmin skills (running some services since >15yrs), semi-advanced project management, organised anything from small tech projects to logistics for big events with thousands of people. TV production technician by education.

Most of my experience scares away corporates, and I'm really bad at writing CV's.

Skłot "Samowolka" we Wrocławiu został zaatakowany przez grupę około 15 uzbrojonych neonazistów.

Od czasu medialnej nagonki urządzonej przez "dziennikarzy" TVN jego adres hula po każdej skrajnie-prawicowej grupie w internecie jako cel do zwalczania.
W imię taniej sensacji i bredni o świętej własności liberałowie mogli się właśnie przyczynić do śmierci młodych ludzi, których nie stać na godne warunki do życia.

A powerful anti-fascist film which was seized by the Nazis and thought to have been lost forever is to receive its world premiere at the London film festival.

The 1931 film Europa, made in Warsaw by surrealist husband and wife Stefan and Franciszka Themerson, has gained mythical status in film history with several attempts to remake or reimagine it.

I've been telling people I'm afraid of autonomous tankettes for over 5 years now and it looks like this was warranted – there now seem to be a whole bunch of killer robots designed in this pattern and coming with varying degrees of autonomy.

Mark my words, these things are going to change how war works – and not for the better.

Death will become exceedingly cheap – financially and psychologically.

This research shows that design of modern social networks creates feedback for outrage expressions.

Emotional tweets receive more “likes” and retweets. It makes people with moderate views become more radical.

I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against. I'm a human being first and foremost, and as such I am for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

Dear - I want to collectively translate a book. How would you go about that?

Perfect solution would be a self hosted, open source online tool with computer assisted translation. Think weblate but for books, with decent view of the translations context (few lines forward and back visible).

Ideal one, would not require setting up a repository, and have minimal technical overhead for the users, so I could provide it as a free service for other groups looking to do the same.

Pierwsza inkarnacja "Solidarności" z 1980 roku była bez wątpienia jednym z najlepiej zorganizowanych i wpływowych związków zawodowych w historii. Mimo iż dziś jest żółtym związkiem, który robi za przybudówkę PiSu, tak wtedy, jeszcze jako MKS, realnie potrafiła przeciwstawić się
