For #InternationalMensDay I want to share this reprint of an old poster circulating in german autonomous spaces in the 80s - It is definitely not perfect, but I've had it hanging in my old flat and it resonated with a lot of people who were not in the habit of questioning concepts like hegemonial masculinity. It roughly translates to:

"For centuries we had to be strong to fight for our honour in wars, the factory or the office. When we don't give orders, we follow them!
Violence against others is normal for many of us. Every third woman will experience sexualized violence in her lifetime!
But enough is enoug!
An end to strength, honour and all that shit! Let us finally learn to live as humans, self-determined and in solidarity, instead of constantly asserting ourselves as a man.
MEN! Understand the patriarchy as an attack on your humanity (as well)"

"Let me take you away from all this," a voice said.
I looked up from the news scroll.
"No, let me," another voice said.
"No, come with me," a third added.
I smiled at the bed, the books, the games. "Thank you."

Encryption only works in 1:1 chats, only using the Google Messages app, only for Beta users... Why bother using RCS at all, if the magic happens at the app layer? There are better protocols (cough @matrixdotorg@twitter.com cough) that aren't held back by MNO shackles! theverge.com/2020/11/19/215744

J'adore! 😆

Virtual meetings are basically modern seances.

"Elizabeth are you here?"
"Make a sound if you can hear us."
"Is anyone else with you?"
"We can't see you. Can you hear us?"

We had a breakthrough! Synapse can now horizontally scale across multiple Python processes, with message sending no longer going via the main proc. This has spectacularly improved perf on Matrix.org over the last few weeks🎉 Read all about it: matrix.org/blog/2020/11/03/how

"Wait, wait," the knight said.
He studied the maiden in front of him. "You're a dragon?"
"I'm a shapeshifter." They shrugged, and took the shape of a dragon.
"But, what were you born to be?"
"What a strange question. I was born to be me. No more, no less."

My advice if you ever work for free for anyone: write them an invoice with the REAL value, and then add a 100% discount.
Even when you work for free, you want people to know that this work has value, some real one :)

Business model: Hi, I’m a poison apple.

UX team: Right, let’s dip this baby in sweet candy and shove a stick into it.

Business model: I’m still a poison apple.

UX team: Yeah, but now they can’t taste the poison.

That feel when you’re making something and you know that regardless of what precautions you take some dickhead somewhere is going to use it for evil.
