What happened in the week of 2023-11-27?
I use my site as a method of blogging about my learnings, as well as sharing information about projects I have previously, or are currently, working on in my spare time.
I'm a GNU/Linux user, a big advocate for the Free Software Movement, and the IndieWeb movement and I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.
I have ADHD (Inattentive Type) and am learning how to make my life work better around it.

The moment a person uses "community manager" or "marketing" as a pejorative is the moment I know they're neither worth my time nor safe to welcome into the communities I serve. Get the fuck out of here with that kinda thinking. #OpenSource #FOSS

Le sigh. And now I must recommend Roku Sticks for people who don’t want to drop over $120 on a streaming device and/or want to use said device reliably on captive networks. https://www.theverge.com/2023/12/1/23984444/amazon-fire-tv-autoplay-ads-on-startup

The most difficult part of achieving my personal goals is that I'm the person I'm relying upon on to reach them
Hey, if you're the type of person that can start typing a reply to an argument, then decide that actually it's not worth bothering with and delete the reply, I want you to know: You're doing fantastic, and you should be proud of yourself. I wish more people had that kind of restraint.

The open source coding philosophy has enormous appeal to many software engineers, and with good reason. Open source libraries, applications, and operating systems are now essential to the overall technology ecosystem. And the number of open source projects is only increasing. But many developers don’t know how to get involved in open source. Or, they
The #OpenUK State of Open Con 2024 Call for Papers has been extended until midnight on Sunday 3rd December - so if like me you thrive under the time pressure, you've got a chance now to get a last submission in 👀
We've so far had 120 submissions across all the conference tracks, and I'm very eager to see what exciting things we've got!
Manton Reece, creator of Micro.blog, stops by to talk about the history of Micro.blog, what it's written in, how it handles feeds coming in and going out, cross-posting, authentication, and the somewhat hidden features of Micro.blog: bookmarking, bookshelves, and even podcasting.

Poverty shouldn't exist. For anyone. Ever. Too often I hear 'No one with a job should live in poverty.' True. But let's go further. No one should live in poverty, job or not. Jobs should be a ticket to more than just survival. Think thriving, not surviving; buying fun, not life.
Wow. https://archive.is/wAt0i, an archived copy of https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2023-11-22/nlrb-files-case-against-mozilla-for-not-hiring-labor-activist. This is really what I'm afraid of. And I'm stupid findable on the Web (thanks to not using an alias — that bit me in the ass very fast — like in 2013, but whatever). I'm hoping Cher wins this case; I'll be following it closely. Especially because I've applied like four times at Mozilla with not as much as a reply if the role was closed or anything. Sidenote, though, I hate the fact that's this idea that we can sign away rights because we have a contract — and that's never clear if it's actually the case. I really am glad she stood up.

The panel members discuss the projects they are involved in, such as the Augur project, OSS Compass, and Project Aspen’s 8Knot. Then, we’ll delve into Mystic’s prototype software, aiming to transform how academic contributions are recognized and valued.
