While most mission statements and diversity statements openly claim a commitment to protecting and fostering both demographic and viewpoint diversity, only 14% explicitly protected viewpoint diversity in their non-discrimination statements: https://heterodoxacademy.org/why-are-nondiscrimination-statements-not-diverse/ @DavidRozado
Read this. This article pretty summarizes what I see every day. And when I criticize it, half of the audience doesn't understand my point. They are simply to young and grew up with smart phones and fast lines.

Ever wanted a one-liner where you mutate something in between, but you wanted further methods to apply to the object rather than the mutator's return value?
I just made this operator in #perl6; I think it's quite pretty actually!
If i find a good name for it, maybe I'll put it in a module. The brackets/symbols to use are still up for debate, too. Open for suggestions :)

@tyil You made me write a blog post. https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2018-09-18_Thoughts_on_using_Perl_6
Liz explains how subroutine signatures work in #perl6 : https://opensource.com/article/18/9/signatures-perl-6
On the side, I'm giving Perl 6 another try. I've started implementing a little wiki! It's really just an excuse to have a real Perl 6 project, to be honest. A bit like Oddmµ, the tiny wiki I wrote in Go in order to have an actual project. What can I say. I like small wikis! Anyway, the Perl 6 wiki doesn't even have a decent edit page, nor recent changes, nothing really. But it displays a page. 🙃

So, the master/slave "debate" is back, and this time it's dumber than ever: https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/9101. Guido says "There is no point in continuing the debate. We’ve all had our say.". If you look at the BPO thread where they "all had their say" (https://bugs.python.org/issue34605) it seems like everyone disagrees or questions the decision, and then the ex-BDFL says "I'm closing this now (...) remaining quibble can be dealt with without keeping this discussion open". ...discussion?
