Pinned toot

Hi. Let's call this an post. Why not?

For now this is an alt I'm not going to acknowledge from other accounts. Gonna see if I can let my hair down a little bit more politically speaking and maybe personally too maybe.

Not going to commit to keeping posts up but I only have vague thoughts now about going back and purging old ones eventually. Try not to hoard them, though, let's stay in the moment.

No LibrePlanet organizers (staff or volunteer), speakers, award winners, exhibitors, or sponsors were made aware of Richard Stallman's announcement until it was public.

We are calling for RMS to be removed from all leadership positions in the FOSS community, including the FSF and GNU, and for the FSF board to resign. Join us. rms-open-letter.github.io/

For whatever it's worth, I did not support the decision to reinstate RMS. I made my arguments and placed my opposing vote; while I was glad I was able to do that I regret not being able to turn the decision the other way.

“Richard M. Stallman, frequently known as #RMS, has been a dangerous force in the free software community for a long time. He has shown himself to be misogynist, ableist, and transphobic, among other serious accusations of impropriety. We, the undersigned, ask for the entire Board of the #FSF to step down and for RMS to be removed from all leadership positions.”

Follow Stallman Forever.

when the time comes, embalm him and place him in a glass coffin off Kendall Square so that he can protect software freedom for ever and ever.

Tantalising article in the Telegraph:

James Titcomb: "Amazon is throwing its weight behind a free rival to Arm’s microchips.

"Several job postings for roles in Amazon’s devices team, listed in recent weeks, call for engineers with experience in #RISCV"

Jay Goldberg: “Every serious chip company is doing some level of RISC-V work”

Jensen Huang, Nvidia’s chief executive, last year described RISC-V as “a real threat for Arm” that provided “really intense competition”.

next time you have issues with some open source software you should come to me and i'll do my best to help you

if you're not sure about switching to linux i can demo stuff for you. if you ignore what techbros are saying you might be surprised how much basic computing tasks (and also advanced software development tasks) are way easier to do on a modern linux desktop than on windows

and I'm including all the quasi-religious woo here, too. Spin your creation myths, inhabit your own personal truths as they happen to help you deal with the world, but let's not get carried away. Crystals and pyramids and infinite diliution to cure, oh, I don't know, COVID or dysentery or any of that? Just, no.
