(please don't extrapolate me mulling here into a hard and fast opinion, I'm just flailing around thinking aloud)

i think that may teach lessons for others who are also in the middle of examining their mental heath and disabilities and forging it into their political identity.

there's sort of an alternative story of hackers in which the movement becomes this amazing empowering story of people coming to terms with their mental health issues for the greater good, and maybe that's where we're heading now

Also "Free as in Sexist? Free Culture and the Gender Gap" firstmonday.org/article/view/4 which cites it as maybe one of the reasons contributing to the imbalance in participation/involvement.

Can't possibly think why, but I'm re-reading Weizenbaum's "Science and the Compulsive Programmer", which was his dig at hacker culture at CSAIL when rms was there. (Some parts quoted here: sac.edu/AcademicProgs/Business )

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented.

Going to stream again for an hour or so for my own sanity at twitch.tv/codetherapy . Messing around with and , probably mulling about and the future of the free software movement.

I am live-streaming my coding therapy RIGHT NOW (I definitely need it after this week): Join me at twitch.tv/codetherapy (and tell me if the audio is weird)


(As an aside, the fact we had transcripts available this year is partly a side-effect of thinking more about the accessibility of EFF events).

Loyalty to people < loyalty to ideas < loyalty to the truth

I wonder if people in gangs ever say "Hey, gang!"
