Going though my Computer History Museum photos and I found the original copy of this 1971 Telnet system diagram from RFC 158. Now you can compare the charming pencil on lined notebook paper to the official scanned version that's been the only one available for decades.

I love this stuff, it reminds me that the internet was invented by humans jotting things down on whatever paper was at hand and not godlike programmers planning everything exquisitely.

Just got an email informing me that the OpenDyslexic font (available from gumroad.com/l/OpenDyslexic via opendyslexic.org/ ) is now SIL-OFL licensed, so there shouldn't be anything standing in your way if you want to use it in a project.

I'm not dyslexic but I appreciate the scanability of the font and really like the concept overall.

I'm seeing a lot of calls for re-examination of FOSS values. In a sense I agree largely: I've myself been arguing for critical re-examination and re-articulation of FOSS principles. However, I see a lot of people calling for things that have been shown to be broken (the non-composability of CC *-NC and *-ND licenses are an example). That's making me fairly nervous that we're going to undo a lot of the structures that have allowed for collaboration and enter an era of confusion.
