If you're a lead at a European studio, push your executives/HR to publish the percentage of devs who have opted out of the Working Time Directive.
Push to lower the percentage in order to attract more experienced devs looking for long-term careers. Show your studio understands crunch isn't sustainable.

Firefox, your priorities are wrong.

Identity Thieves that *copy* data from Surveillance companies are doing this same thing as those companies - using data of our lives against us without our input or control.

We should have control over our data.

This is a political issue.

Technology has only and will only continue to allow this surveillance at massive scale.

Vote, run for office, conduct civil disobedience (if you’re willing to face the consequences), call your representatives and hold them accountable.

@cbowdon Of course. They are becoming a service provider more and more, their services are built on open source, and it behooves them to have the community on their side.

Interesting read on why joined yahoo.com/news/microsoft-may-r TL;DR Microsoft is in a transition from a product company to a service company. With Azure they earn a lot of money these days with people running Free Software on their cloud platform. Which means that the threat of software patent interferes with the growth of their services business these days.

From the "headlines I never thought I would see" department: Microsoft open sources its entire patent platform portfolio.

@yogthos You don't get it because you've never tried it. That's perfectly reasonable. They're like Pringles!

@wakest Disclaimer: I'm a filthy capitalist.

Having said that... anyone who doesn't understand why there are both for-profit enterprises and non-profits, doesn't know how incentives work. The focus, approach and decision-making on both is different. Stakeholders and their expectations out of the enterprise are entirely different as well.

It's like going on a rant about why wouldn't everyone just use forks when asked about soup.

Yesterday, 26th of September was Stanislav Petrov Day.

A day to celebrate that you, me, everyone isn't nuclear vapour right now.
SP - disobeyed orders and military protocol, used his own thinking, and by doing so averted nuclear retaliation based on false alarms that would likely have caused a mass nuclear war in 1983.

Stanislav Petrov, often referred to as "The man who saved the world" died in December 2017
