Racist words in tech Show more
I wrote about use of m*ster and sl*ve in tech:
@socketwench thank you!!! this convention always disgusted me
I always try to use parent/child.
@thegibson @socketwench I do leader/follower. nice and neutral and keeps the intent.
@socketwench I got asked by a nontechy person why we use those words and I had no real answer either. I hoped it was gone due to the usage of SATA instead of IDE drives but here I am reading this and thinking, screw it.
@socketwench Godot is unfortunately another example, and they seem quite resistant to any change: https://github.com/godotengine/godot/issues/7986
Is this something you could spread around?
