@email@example.com My key memory of it is watching a friend watch in horror as it sent a group text to his furry contact list and non-furry contact list, revealing their numbers to each other. At least it respected the division of contact groups.

This week we’re joined by Stefano Maffulli, the Executive Director of the Open Source Initiative (OSI). They are responsible for representing the idea and the definition of open source globally. Stefano shares the challenges they face as a US-based non-profit with a global impact. We discuss the work Stefano and the OS...

Excited to hear how you find the rest of Loki 👀
Also I wish there were laws against using tracker URLs on unsubscribe links. I'm unsubscribing, you can already record that in your stuff, don't make me have to disable my DNS-based ad-blocker just to tell you that I don't want to receive your shitty emails.
Wow I can't believe they deepfaked all the dumb stuff I supposedly said on the internet going all the way back to the 1990s
We’re back! Jason Hall joins the show to tell Justin &amp; Autumn all about how Chainguard builds hundreds of containers without a single Dockerfile.
This was to a @changelog News submitter, but worth sharing publicly: “The post looked interesting, but I hadn't scrolled an inch before I was interrupted by your email newsletter signup overlay. This is a bad reading experience, which we consider when linking to content. A better place for something like this is at the bottom of the post, because it a) lets the reader actually _read_ your post, and b) assures they made it to the end, so might be interested in more of your content.”
I will not be attending
Not around for this, but it sounds like it'll be interesting 👀
I will not be attending
I unfortunately won't be able to attend this one, but will definitely be up for the next one!
Jamie Tanna (who has a website) joins us to discuss the indie web, living with ADHD, sharing his salary history with the world &amp; building DMD – a dynamite open source tool to help you better understand the use of dependencies across your org.
I think the ActivityPub based Fediverse is actually not a decentralised distributed network, but is in fact one single person. And that single person enjoys, very specifically, trying to trigger the fight/flight/faun response in me and taking bets with the other protocols on which one I’ll choose next. 🙈
One of my favourite things to do in my free time is to tinker with this website. Indeed, this website is the culmination of years of tinkering. I have added features like coffee shop maps that I can share with friends, a way for me to share my bio in two languages, a sitemap.xml file to help search engines find pages on my website, and more.
Haha if they've managed to crack the ability to live stream food and drink, they're really burying the lede 😂
If you're in #Nottingham and fancy getting up super early on Wednesday, I'm talking at Notts TechFast about dependency-management-data and how you can better understand how much your organisation relies on Open Source and internal dependencies - would be great to see you there!
And for those who are daunted by getting into town at that time (I know I am 😹) there's also a livestream!

If you got this far and are a software engineer who wants to get involved in making the web just a tiny bit more accessible, I’ll provide you one tip. Do not immediately reach for some form of automation. Every dev I’ve met who wants to learn about accessibility, squirrels away and comes back to me with a goal to fully automate accessibility testing through some automated tool or a whole new suite of cypress tests. Instead, talk to people. Understand their barriers. I don’t want you to disaapear for a week and come back having written a post about how you realised how bad the web was after using a screen reader for forty eight hours. It’s a good insight, but you’re not a screen reader power user, and it’s just one more “wow, being disabled is hard???” blog post to add to the pile.
I'm at the point where people complaining about projects that are underfunded & consequently understaffed not moving "fast enough" is just going to start resulting in blocks. I'm not gonna waste my time arguing with you because thing's didn't happen at your pace. Seriously, these projects take an absolute tonne of work. You want stuff to move faster, start throwing money at it so people can dedicate full time towards doing things.
Week Notes 24#07 (4 mins read).
What happened in the week of 2024-02-12?
Here's a good example of how I like to use issue threads. The issue opens with a description that includes relevant linked code snippets, documents some design decisions and micro-research I performed, includes the commit that fixes the issue, links to the docs and shows some follow-up work before linking to the release that incorporated the changes Goal is to tell the full story of the problem and its solution so I can fully understand it when I revisit much later https://github.com/simonw/datasette/issues/2277

My biggest nerd thing right now - and slight hyperfixation - is a way to take your dependency tree and understand more about it ie security issues, supply chain hygiene concerns, unmaintained dependencies, as well as being able to ask "what versions of Terraform modules are we using" or "how many libyears behind are we on updates"
Attached: 4 images After god knows how many years of work, the people behind the #StarWars 4K project have released the final installment. For those who don't know: a group of dedicated restorers, unhappy with the reworked Special Editions, hunted down, scanned and restored the original 35mm theatrical prints of the first Star Wars trilogy in Ultra High Definition. They're better than the official blurays. Incredible work, not only in terms of authentic content but even the picture quality is superior.
