Currently wondering why next to the (usual and anticipated) devroom, there is one for Apache OpenOffice. Curious about that, will they make a comeback after all? Also, curious if LibreOffice talks with discuss recent business model discussions within LibreOffice community, as you can read here in the inesteemable LWN: lwn.net/Articles/833233/

Aiko Klostermann's talk at was really good. Not just what is wrong with AI (with new examples!) but also the beginning of solutions.

The news that Stanford hospital's vaccinations are not going to frontline workers ( m.youtube.com/watch?v=E2cV5H-2 NBC news) was worrying, but their explanation? Blame the algorithm.

(AKA: Stanford, what the hell you doin'??)

Dank den @haecksen amüsiere ich mich schon zwei Abenden und bin ganz verzaubert mit was hier so auf dem Tisch liegt. Recht herzlichen Dank!

Can I just say that the has the most bad-ass sounding name I've encountered in tech since ages? 🔥

Against today's Covid19-mood only Ministry's Burning Inside helps. "I really couldn't be bothered with you / Get out of my face and watch me die"

Got a thank you from someone whose stuff I fixed. So I guess what I want to say is: what basic skill would you like to pick up or practice? ifixit.com/Device/Skills

It just occurred to me how wonderful working at home is for big data companies. All those workprofiles and "private" profiles they've been able to collate. Here's to keeping everything in their own separate networks and VPNs... but honestly, I'm lowkey angry I even need to think about it. :ac_angry:

Aaaand in today's episode of a shop that cancelled my order áfter taking my money. :ac_facepalm: Because why question the algorithm of the payment platform? Didn't even try to talk to me or wonder about the fact that I'd ordered from them before...
