Sweden formed laws against hate speech in 1949. That's a few years after WWII, as you'll notice.

At that time, most other countries had anti-nazi laws. Sweden refused to establish any such laws, and pointed at Freedom of speech.

Now, since it was allowed to print nazi propaganda in Sweden, a lot of people started doing that, and then mailing the stuff abroad.
Other countries, who were more anti-nazi, didn't like this. They put pressure on Sweden, and we got our laws against hate speech.

Those laws exist because Sweden was a beacon of Nazi propaganda, and other countries put pressure on us.

How did we get here?
- Traditional distros didn't really provide a way to "work on" development libraries
- Language-specific tools like virtualenv, npm, etc exploded
- Combining these things became so difficult that binary black box solutions like Docker, Flathub, etc took off
- Web 2.0 happened, lots of software *using* FOSS became aimed at *not for end users*

This is *one half* of what has really resulted in a lot of "the developer knows best" kind of mindset which cuts out the user.

Part of why I advocate Guix so hard.

I really like software that encourages the user to learn, to get involved, to feel empowered to explore and participate. We need more of that.

Stranger Things - Episode 5 

Hm, that was a weird episode. I'm not really liking how Dustin is being mean to Steve all of the sudden though.

He's nice to everyone, protects everyone, and actually pays attention to their problems (remember Max at the cemetery? Dustin and Erica at the Mall?) and they all just don't really care about him anymore.

I also didn't really like how Jonathan looks kinda dumber now.

And lastly, seeing Eleven past is really nice and Mike + Will relationship getting back

I think one of the most precious things about FOSS is that it doesn't offer you the solutions to problems, but gives you the tools. If it's broken, open an issue, or better yet: fix it yourself! If you don't like something, patch it out for your use case.

FOSS can't offer you solutions, you'll have to dig that with us, collectively, and yes, you may need to leave your comfort zone, and maybe some stuff will not work from day one, but we're in this together.

That doesn't mean you can't complain tho. You can and should. But be advised that you are most likely shouting out to the wind.

And *don't* give me that "oh but the UX is better" because honestly, at what cost?

Apparently, Apple stopped updating computers which has more than six years old.

I know that some people /need/ to use Apple for work but honestly, if you are still buying Macbooks and stuff like that *because* you want it to, well, then your just reaping what you sow.

There are many other OSes out there that you choose not to use (or work with it to improve, something you'll never be able to do with proprietary platforms).

A Apple tirou o carregador da caixa do #iPhone “pelo meio ambiente”. Ok. Ontem, sem justificar e na surdina, parou de atualizar computadores de seis anos de idade perfeitamente funcionais — escrevo isto de um modelo afetado. #greenwashing

Stranger Things - Season 4 


To be honest, using a single monitor has been much better for me

Watched three episodes of Stranger Things 4 yesterday.

And boy, the photography of this season is amazing.

Overall the season is pretty good. Though a lot of things could have been avoided if those fucking boys weren't emotionally constipated.

an excellent visual interactive demonstration of how shitty the current state of the web is for soooo many people

and it doesnt even touch on the shitshow you get if you hop endpoints thru a VPN, or the captchas...

„I'm an Agnostic, Dyslexic, Insomniac.
I lay awake all night wondering if there really is a dog.“

Btw, if you're looking for excellent suspense but a small series, Archive 81 is a decent recommendation.

Watched on a weekend on my vacation.

Grabbed an, uh "legal", copy of the newest season of Stranger Things.

Now I need to find time to finish the rewatch of the third season

Good morning, lovelies. I hope y'all have a Happy Thursday. :) 💕
