If you are taking part in the #ClimateStrike - you may be interested in this article I wrote on living a net-positive life.
Globally, we overdraw the Earth’s resources, with humans consuming the equivalent to 1.7 Earths biocapacity.
My article investigates how far we can offset our negative environmental impacts through financial means (ideally, in addition to behavioural change). For 20 dollars a month, you can be #net-positive carbon.
Good morning Fediverse! My solidarity is going out to all people who cannot participate in today's #climatestrike. People who are physically or mentally unable to participate, people who are bound by (paid or unpaid) care work, people who are unable to travel to the next strike location, and all others. Being able to attend a strike is a privilege, and nobody should be shamed for not having it.
Fun #OpenBIM fact of the day! OpenBIM #IFC supports the ability to record qualitative design objectives within your #BIM models, such as code compliance, health and safety considerations, or #architecture #design intentions.
This is vitally important to ensure that design intent does not get lost through the design and construction process.
Guess which OpenBIM and #opensource program can do this? Blender!
Don't just read the link and go "I can't strike," there's also coordinated protests and other ways to get involved.
As the website says, "[o]ur house is on fire - let's act like it."
(Boost this or a better call to action, or write your own, please.)
Have you ever seen anyone with a connection to Microsoft use the term #FOSS rather than OSS, or open source software? They've been remarkably successful in killing the "freedom" aspect of FOSS, which, in my opinion, is the most crucial aspect by far. Saddens me that many people fail to notice this.
@thinkMoult Wow! It's awesome feature. In Blender it is much easier to create complex elements, like LOD 400. Can't wait for release.
Create object aggregations, object types, use modifiers and arrays, and use Blender 2.8's collections features to quickly create beautiful building designs right in real-time rendered view.
The brand new Blender exporter is now available as super experimental code as part of IfcOpenShell, check it out here:
For those who have to deal with VBA code in Excel, I just realised that it is impossible to turn on line numbers in the Excel IDE.
Here are some hilarious workarounds:
Has anyone managed to convince their workplace to go LibreOffice + their scripting language flavour?
My gf's learning html. Nobody told her that vim's a strange tool for genius programmers, so I just told her it was a normal tool, showed her insert and escape, then let her get on with it.
Half an hour later, I showed her another vim command.
Someone with almost zero education, who can't type properly, is programming in vim because nobody told her it was difficult. I know people who can program in Haskell who aren't sure if they can do vim.
Review of why open source is about more than licenses... and why the world needs *Free Software* principles more than ever. https://karlitschek.de/2019/08/open-source-if-more-than-licenses/ And his commentary on the dominant IT corporations is spot on. Thank Frank!
