So I just discovered this post in my RSS feed by @write_as 😂😂
Some interesting changes coming for #Mycroft. I like their decision to move to snaps, and the choice to go back and invest in their code base instead of just pushing new features is a smart one.
"Mark II Update - March 2020 - Mycroft"
Someone on Hacker News asked what a leader looks like in a software development team, and I shared my thoughts:
>A good leader is connecting people to the right mentors; going to bat to help someone's good idea come true; recognizing natural areas of expertise for contributors to develop their skills in; identifying, predicting, and preventing bottlenecks in the process; and making sure information flows smoothly into, out of, and within the team. Think about what the people on your team need and what little strings you can pull to make their lives easier and help them to feel more productive, fulfilled, and impactful.

@reykjalin @sir @newt Given that it's 42.5 minutes long, I haven't had time to watch that yet, but the super short abstract reminds me of Jim Sterling's "Copyright Deadlock" trick for giving the finger to people abusing YouTube monetization to steal ad revenue on videos they don't have a right to.
Yeeeeaaaaahhhhh, so maybe we shouldn't be using Zoom at all
I got this working :D
Note: that OAuth token is for localhost, not prod
Pushed a large update to https://www.TryLinux.today
Added a new hardware section for Linux computers and cleaned up some inactive OS recommendations.
Pulled the trigger.
Now supporting #sourcehut financially because this is exactly the kind of thing I want.
$2/month is a great price to support @sir and crew.
I know the claim is that #Github makes our repos more easily discovered but after years of use I still don't believe the claim. A good and useful repository will be discovered with or without Github.
Long live sr.ht
#git migration to follow.

@danarel how can you even pretend to care about privacy if you use a macbook /s
“thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"”
Yes, software corporations are moving deeper into abusive relationship habits with their users.
