We've got a blog post that explains our views & reaction to #GItHub's new #Sponsors program & related initiatives. We're concerned that it (so far) ignores key governance issues for #FOSS projects related to funding. https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/may/23/github-sponsors/ #Sustainability #FOSSSustainability

One reason the Kodak #KashMiner is so ~*aesthetic*~ is because it really, really feels like a 2018 prop built in 1981. The Kodak brand is PERFECT for that. It's better than the PanAm logos all over 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Last night I started #GetOnOurLawn, aimed at *established* Mastodon people, to help make it a nicer place for newbies. Here's an incomplete summary:
- Use hashtags, so new folks have something to find.
- Report bugs and request features, so new people have a good first impression usability-wise.
- Report people that newbies shouldn't have to deal with.
- Be encouraging when new people propose good ideas.
- If you don't have anything nice/encouraging to say to someone, just don't say anything!

I see people here sometimes saying that they don't want any more big influxes of people here because undesirable/stupid/mainstream people will join, I just saw someone say that riffraff plebs would "dilute the intellectual discourse," and I just want to say that I feel like that is gross hipster elitist nonsense.
More people! All different kinds of people! People that are curious and new and will point out our Missing Stairs! People who will get all over our lawns! YEAH
