"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

A great sounding call for contributions from the Engines of Difference workgroup. The deadline is in two days though!

"Otherwise Practices With/In Computing

In this call for contributions, we want to know the cusps, potentials, tunings, and boundary-making practices that critically push the extractive and the exclusionary, the connective and the networking, and the potential-inclined practices of computing."

Reading about encrypted dns, and its protocol DoH (dns over https) makes me wanna configure my own dns on my debian. Anyone is using one? Or firefox's doh setting?

#Chile resiste
"9 meses con trauma ocular, 9 meses con mi herramienta de trabajo dañada, 9 meses en rehabilitación, 9 meses sin visión de mi ojo izquierdo, 9 meses de lucha por sanar. En Chile manifestarse cuesta un ojo de la cara. ¿Que tanto vimos para que nos dispararan a la cara? Justicia, reparación, verdad y NO REPETICIÓN"

La fotografa chilena Nicole Kramm, quien fue alcanzada por una bala de la policia en su ojo izquierdo el 31 de diciembre de 2019 mientras caminaba junto a sus colegas.

@praxeology noice, we are watching this one at home, also no talking (very important)
